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!

Fantastic Tour of the Acropolis! Fotini was a fantastic tour guide with such impressive knowledge on the history of Athens and the Acropolis. We learned so much from her beautiful storytelling and appreciated her insight as to where to take the best photos! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tour guide.

Great tour guide for the Acropolis We had a great tour of the Acropolis with Fotini as our guide. It was definitely worth getting there for 8 am to get ahead of the crowds. Fotini was friendly, well organised and practical, and very knowledgeable about the site. It definitely enhanced our experience to have her as our guide! We would strongly recommend her!

An experience you won't want to miss If you're planning a trip to Athens, I highly recommend booking a private guided tour of the Acropolis with Fotini! Her crisp, concise, and anecdotal details helped my family and I understand the rich history of the sites and made the tour so much more enjoyable. Her use of relevant stories and humor truly brought the magnificent structures to life. Despite the tour only lasting two hours, we learned so much during our time with Fotini. In fact, it was the highlight of our 4-day trip to Athens! She's a fantastic guide who is friendly, patient, and structured. Her passion for Greek history and philosophy is truly infectious. You won't regret booking a private tour with Fotini to learn more about the history and culture of Acropolis and Athens!

Amazing guide and an unforgettable experience! Fotini is an excellent tour guide! right from the start she was very accommodating of our group and very professional. She is also well educated about the site so she was able to answer all of our questions. She knew all the best spots to take memorable photos and even helped us find tour guides for the other Greek islands we visited (Santorini and Mykonos). She definitely made our time in Athens more enjoyable and we are so grateful for her knowledge and kindness.

Fantastic tour of Acropolis We had a wonderful tour of Acropolis with Fotini - very informative and engaging. Everything was easy - from booking, to finding the meeting place, to the visit, which she's timed perfectly to avoid cruise ship crowds. Although we visited Acropolis before, this was our first guided tour there and we got so much more out of it! Kids loved the story of how the myth of cyclops came about :)Fotini also gave us some tips for other places to visit and restaurant recommendations, including Strofi right next to Acropolis - such an amazing place.

Hele goede gids Tine Lepidou is een leuke gids. Haar uitleg was heel interessant en het werd goed gebracht. Het was helemaal niet saai. Bij sommige gidsen luister je niet meer, omdat het saai wordt , maar bij Tine bleef je luisteren. Dank je wel voor de rondleiding en de goeie tips.

An inspiring introduction to the Acropolis The Acropolis is a place that is best explored with a guide, and then Fotini is the best! She speaks calmly, knowledgeable, and encourages questions. She can convey her passion and pulls you completely into the story. We were sorry the tour was over. 😃 Fotini also gives extra tips, including which culinary addresses are definitely worth a visit.

Akropolis tour Onze rondleiding door de Akropolis was in 1 woord indrukwekkend. Wij hadden gekozen voor een gids en wat troffen wij het met Fotini Lepidou. Het was alsof we de leukste geschiedenisles kregen. We hebben 1,5 uur ademloos geluisterd en onze ogen uitgekeken. Nu 1 dag later zijn we nog bevangen door deze mooie ervaring. Een echte aanrader en als we 6 sterren hadden mogen geven dan hadden we dat gedaan!
