Private Tour: Athens City Highlights Including the Acropolis of Athens

If you’d like to know more about Athens’ history and heritage, the easiest route is a private tour. Ask your guide the questions you want and travel at your own pace as you see highlights including the Acropolis, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Panathenaic Stadium, the Changing of the Guard, and more. Hotel pickup and drop-off, plus a choice of morning or afternoon departure, adds extra convenience.

What to Expect
After your private guide collects you from your central hotel, your first stop is the Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Then, head to the Roman-era Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Next, continue to the National Garden and pause outside the Hellenic Parliament. Admire the Changing of the Guard, which happens every hour.

Stroll up the slopes of the ancient citadel to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis, home to spectacular buildings dating back to the peak of Athens’ power: the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, and so much more. You tour ends when your minibus drops you back at your hotel.
