We took the private tour (for just the two us) to see the historic sites of the Acropolis and the nearby museum. Our guide Alexandria was outstanding. She was extremely knowledgeable (she's an archeologist), had a very pleasant and friendly personality and spoke English well. The tour was several hours with lots of walking so it's not for those with limited physical abilities. After the tour, we were escorted to a lovely quiet restaurant for dinner.
A bucket list tour for me. The tour was excellent and well worth the extra price to have a private guide. Because it was a private tour, we were able to ask a lot of questions and linger at areas we were interested in, rather than be rushed along with a group. The museum is beautiful and the exhibits are wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Most importantly, she was kind. I had spine fusion surgery four months prior to the tour. My goal was to be able to climb to the top of the Acropolis. It was extremely difficult for me and took a very long time. More than once I was nearly in tears and certain that I wouldn't make it. She was my champion, encouraging me, letting me stop to rest - and she never looked impatient. I can't thank her enough. Going to the Acropolis is something I have wanted to do all my life. Thank you so much for a wonderful day!
My wife and I spent the last afternoon of our nine-day Mediterranean vacation touring the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum with a private guide who was extremely knowledgeable about ancient Greek culture, their philosophy and architecture. Having studied Greek architecture a bit in college and having visited many ancient sites while on this vacation, our guide provided with new information and insights we did not expect. She was able to guide us efficiently through the museum, which deserves more than a couple of hours, but with limited time, this was the best immersion into the history and sites we wanted to get exposed to. We had a little miscommunication about the start time which was quickly addressed after a short call to the Athens Walk Tour Company who provided our guide. At the end of the tour, the finale of our trip was dinner overlooking the Acropolis at night and was a experience that exceeded our expectations.
Our guide Mariza shared with us her love, knowledge, and enthusiasm, about Greece, Athens, Acropolis, Parthenon, Greek mythology, and classical time technology. We were very pleased to meet her and learn a lot about her beautiful country. She is very nice and friendly person. Thank you Mariza, very much! The restaurant has nice view on Acropolis it locates on the roof and the food was OK.
Maria, our guide, was a well educated young woman who could tell an old couple the details of Ancient Greece and the cultural maturation without totally confusing us. Very accommodating and helpful to me. I am disabled,and Maria made sure that I was able to appreciate the beauty and progression .
Excellent way to see the Acropolis and the Museum and be introduced to Greek history. Our guide, Anna was wonderful with her stories of Greek history and mythology. We could tell Anna was extremely passionate and knowledgeable through her storytelling. The Greek dinner was lovely with nice staff and in a great location overlooking the Acropolis. Myself, my husband and our 14 year old son thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
There were seven of us on a family trip. Our guide was great and very engaging. I think her name started with an M. I am sorry I don't recall because she was terrific. She is also the first guide I have ever had that refused to accept a gratuity - and she certainly deserved one!! The dinner was also very nice with a good nighttime view of the Acropolis. There was too much yes, too much food, however, and I felt bad that we were not able to come close to finishing all that was served to us.
This private tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum with Greek dinner was excellent. Our tour guide, Rosa, was very knowledgeable and personable. She told a story of Greek history and Greek mythology using the museum artifacts and the Acropolis to illustrate the topic. Rosa was very informative and you could sense she enjoyed what she was sharing.
And the dinner was excellent. It was a prix fixe meal but there were enough options for all and it was all delicious. Also, our dinner was on a rooftop restaurant that had the Acropolis in its view.You could watch the sun go down and the Acropolis light up.What a night!
On our final afternoon/evening in Greece w took the Viator Exclusive Tour: Acropolis of Athens New Acropolis Museum and Greek Dinner. We met Thanasis who is an archaeologist, historian, philosopher, actor, exceptional teacher and passionate citizen of Greece! Wow, the impressive credentials were only surpassed by Thanasis's ability to transfer his passion and knowledge! This was the grande finale of our final day/evening in Greece! I highly recommend!!! The entire family of four Me, my husband and 19/24 year old daughters give this a 5 star plus! We knew the Acropolis would be amazing but we had no idea how crazy, unbelievable the Acropolis Museum would be! Thanasis brought the exhibits alive for us in a way that would have never happened on our own. I learned about the genius of Phidias, the artichect and sculpture overseeing the construction of the Acropolis. I was also enlightened to learn the damage and theft to Parthenon caused by the greed of Thomas Bruce, the 7th Earl of Elgin in 1801. I vote for the British Museum to give the Parthenon Marbles back to the people of Greece!!!! When Thanasis learned that our daughter was a professional Actor he took us to the Theather of Dionysos where it all started. He directed a short Greek Tragedy with our family as the cast! We certainly had a great laugh! We enjoyed dinner on the roof top of Attikos Greek House. We did not get a view of the Acropolis as stated in the overview of the tour. When we asked to be seated where we would have a view of the Acropolis the Restaurant they informed us the seating area with a view was for guest w reservations. Since I purchased the tour two months in advance I was confused. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful evening and throughly enjoyed the tour
