What you can expect

Explore the most famous symbol of Athens like you’ve never imagined. The best of Acropolis is waiting for you in this 100% private tour by your very own professional guide.

Kick-off your tour at one of the most famous meeting points in Athens: the Monastiraki Square. You’ll find a unique blend of styles, eras and cultures. All it takes is a 360 degree turn to see the very history of Athens surrounding you.

Stroll towards the archaeological site of the Hadrian's Library and walk towards the Gate of Athena. Check out the remaining ruins through the ages. Reconstruct the past in the present, as you discover how thousands of years of history formed the life in Athens.

Head to the most famous building in the Roman Agora: an eight-sided marble tower. Continue wandering down hidden alleyways and discover Athens from an insider’s perspective.

Make your way towards Plaka, the most ancient part of the city. Check out some of the oldest taverns of Athens that have been meeting points for over two decades. Get ready to enter the tiny village of Anafiotika, a tranquil oasis isolated from Plaka’s buzz. Enjoy the cluster of small houses built on the slopes of the Acropolis. It's like being on a Greek Island.

Arrive at your final stop and enter the incredible Acropolis through the less touristy south slope. What’s even better is that there’s no need to wait in line! Your private guide has already purchased your tickets in advance. Just pay your host directly.

Check out the host videos and pick your favorite one. This tour can always be customized to your wishes.

*The entrance tickets for Acropolis are not included. The price is 20€ per person.
**Due to the very hot summers, make sure to bring sunscreen, a hat, and water. Good walking shoes are a must. The walking route can be customized according to your physical condition, and an alternative entry way is available.
