What people are saying about Thiseio

Absolutely enjoyed our guided tour with Artemis. She was very knowledgeable and I loved that we toured the Acropolis and then went to the museum where she referred back to items in the museum that we discussed on the tour. Was definitely a longer tour then expected but so worth it and highly recommend! Also few things: this tour does not include tickets for entrance into the museum and Acropolis but you can purchase tickets at 1) the sites (Acropolis and museum) or 2) from the tour company when you arrive (they accept cash only). The museum also requires proof of Covid vaccine with the date of last vaccine and persons name visible and you still have to wear a mask in the museum.

I enjoyed this tour immensely. I thought 4 hours may feel quite long but time flies when your having fun. I enjoyed hearing all the different stories of Greek mythology. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the tour went at a nice pace with time given to look around ourselves too and opportunities to rest

It totally makes sense to visit the Acropolis with a guide. Our guide Aramis was great. She is both professional and friendly. Without her we would miss many interesting and important details. 100% recommended.

Great bike tour of the city & fantastic hosts with lots of knowledge & fun

Our guide Artemis was great, and the tour length was just right.
