This ticket was used by mom. We visited every attraction during our 4 day visit. The entrance for me was for free since I'm under 25 and an EU citizen. I think if you want to get to know Athens and have a little sightseeing on your first visit then this is more than enough for you. I recommend this ticket combination very much.

Very useful information on acropolis tour so we were able to sit and listen to information rather than queuing to read information boards

Easy way to buy the combo ticket you will need online before you get to Athens. No waiting in any line, etc.

Glad I did this got my tickets al in one spot! Had a great time!

Very quick and easy access for all of the attractions.
