This tour may start very early but afterwards, you will be grateful! The Acropolis has a special atmosphere in the early morning: the soldiers hoisting the flag, the beautiful light and the sunbeams falling on the monuments, truly breathtaking! At this time of the day it’s so wonderfully quiet and peaceful, leaving you with a sense of exclusivity! From the top, you will enjoy a beautiful panoramic view and also get explanations about surrounding monuments. The tour ends on the Acropolis so you can continue to enjoy the spectacular views and take pictures.

Getting up early will be more than rewarded!

Fun and animated tour Had a very nice and animated tour of the Acropolis! Fotini took us through the long history of the Pantheon, the Nike temple, .... . She also knows the perfect places to escape the hustle and bustle and really enjoy yourself to the fullest. A tour in the Netherlands is a real advantage with children, they are much more involved.

Fantastic Family Guide Fotini was the best guide I have ever had anywhere on my travels! She was clear with her words and explanations, kind in looking after and leading the group and really super with the children. Despite the burning heat, we remember the tour happily! Definitely to be recommended.

Leerrijke rondleiding met een joviale gids We hadden afgesproken met Fotini aan de ingang van de Acropolis. Ze gaf meteen een zeer ontspannen en joviale indruk. Ze nam ons mee in haar verhaal rond en over de Acropolis en slaagde er via haar interactieve uitleg in om iedereen steeds geboeid te houden. Zeker een aanrader!

Amazing Acropolis Tour Guide Fotini was an amazing guide for our first time at the Acropolis. She was excellent at communicating ahead of time and telling us what to expect. She also made us feel comfortable throughout the tour as it can get overwhelming with the crowds. She’s fun and very knowledgeable and we had a blast!
