Our guide, Costos, was excellent. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the Acropolis, and he kept everything interesting and entertainingly delivered. The pace is the tour was also about right. You do need to be reasonably fit as there is a lot of steps to climb but we were well aware of this before the tour.

An excellent tour, professional and well designed. Whispers (earbuds and radio) were provided to allow us to hear our guide easily, even from a distance. The route started from the South entrance, with stops at the Theater, the Odeon, and other important or scenic spots, before finally entering the Acropolis. our guide, Kimon, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job of helping us understand the culture and the site

Stelios was our German speaking guide. There is no better way to do it. He guided us through the Acropolis with passion and sympathy. He studied archaeology, among other things, so he knows everything and can impart his knowledge in a very clear and light-hearted manner. He speaks native German and Greek, so there were no communication problems. Absolute recommendation! The tour was our highlight! Thank you Stelios.
