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, breathtaking! And it is still so wonderfully quiet and peaceful! We can go wherever we want! 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!!!

Op pad naar de Akropolis met Feline Lepidou Wat een geweldige gids is Foline Lepidou. Zij nam ons mee naar de Akropolis met de gebouwen er om heen. Haar kennis is groot en zij vertelt ook op een leuke manier over de geschiedenis en dat allemaal in 1,5 uur. Echt een aanrader!

Marvellous tour We had such a great time with Fotini at Acropolis. It was easy to arrange the tour with her and then the visit itself was a delight. She is very friendly and her knowledge expands to many fields, from history to mythology, archeology, linguistics and even geology and botanics!…

Amazing Acropolis Experience Tiny was an amazing tour guide! Her ability to discuss both history combined with current affairs and putting things into context made it an incredibly interesting tour. We could have easily listened to her stories for another few hours. Highly, highly recommend her tour!

Amazing tour guide Fotini gave us an absolutely wonderful tour. She brought the Acropolis to life with her broad range of knowledge about the history, building, cultures, mythology and even plants growing along the path sprinkling all with interesting stories. The tour continued to the Acropolis Museum and again all excellent. In addition Fontini is so easy to know, very kind and compassionate. She also was very helpful with arranging our meeting.…
