About
It is, of course, possible to explore the ruins of the Acropolis independently. But without an understanding of ancient Greek religion, culture, and history, it can be tough to tell exactly what you’re looking at—let alone what it all means. This guided walking tour takes the confusion out of the Acropolis and leaves you free to continue exploring once you’re done.

Highlights
Explore the Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
See the Theatre of Dionysus, Parthenon, and the Temple of Athena Nike (entrance at your expense)
Learn about ancient Greek history, mythology, drama, and lifestyles
Soak up sweeping views from the summit as you discover surrounding sights
What to expect
Greet your guide in Central Athens and then stroll to the Acropolis, pay your entrance fee, and head inside. Enter through the south side, stopping at the Theatre of Dionysus and the Sanctuary of Dionysus. Inside the ancient citadel, ascend the sacred hill. Your guide will explain the names and meaning of sights like the Parthenon, with its missing marbles; the Temple of Athena Nike; the Erechtheion; and the Propylaea gateway.  At the summit, savor sweeping views of the modern city as your guide points out surrounding monuments, including Areopagus hill and the ancient agora, a meeting place that was once the beating heart of ancient Athens. The tour concludes here, leaving you free to explore at your leisure or make your own way back to your hotel.

Great Experience with Kimon
Jun 2021
My husband and I went on a walking tour with Kimon as our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We are so glad we chose the walking tour rather than doing a self-guided tour as we were able to appreciate the Acropolis much more. We had so much fun asking Kimon questions and loved interacting with the others in the group as well. Loved it!

Our guide Stavroula was really knowledgeable and proficient in English. we had a great time with her and learned so much more. I can really recommend this tour. Too bad that they didn't include Agora on this tour due to the virus.

Great tour with Vicky!!!
Oct 2020
This is a great way to see the Acropolis so that you know exactly what you are looking at. Vicky was an amazing local guide. We got queue skip tickets, the tour starts at 11.30 am and last for around 1.5 hrs. You get to visit the Acropolis, Parthenon, Erechtheion, Propylaia, Nike Temple, the Dionysus Theater and Sanctuary. Our group was 10 people from all over the world! Vicky answered all my questions and even gave me some great Greek recommendations too! I did the Walking Food Tour with Despina previously and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND both for an extremely cultural experience with absolute expert local guides. It was very COVID safe and you could easily hear Vicky word for word with masks on :)))

Hope to see you again in Athens!

Chaotic
Sep 2020 • Couples
First they switched our date only one day prior to the tour, for which I got a mail. But then they apparently also changed the meeting point for which I never received a mail. Once I called them as nobody was at the original meeting point, she explained the new location to a staff member there, whom sent us in a completely wrong direction so we never managed to find the tour.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Athens Walking Tours is one of the very few companies which during these very difficult times continues to offer tours daily in Athens, often in unaffordable for us, very small groups, maintaining the high quality of services which distinguish us, always in compliance with the latest Covid19 regulations, but also, trying to accommodate our customers the best way we can. It is true that nowadays, we are often forced to move bookings either during the same day or to a different day, always with the client’s agreement. It is also true that we are often forced to contact our clients about the possible changes up to one day prior to the tour date as, due to the circumstances, we accept last-minute cancellations and/or bookings, which eventually determine the course of materialization of our tours. However, as with all our clients, same for you, we tried to accommodate you in every possible way, providing you with alternatives while at the same time, keeping our system open up to the previous day to the tour, in hopes that the tour you had originally booked would materialize. As we always do, we expected to hear from you prior to proceeding with any changes and of course, after receipt of your confirmation that you would be able to switch the tour date, we provided you with all necessary information for your meeting point. It is very unfortunate that you didn’t receive our confirmation e-mail for the change in your booking and that the explanation provided also by phone on the day of the tour, as well as the efforts of our guide, did not enable you to join our wonderful tour.
