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!

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.

The Best Tour Guides in the City! I recently had the pleasure of taking a tour with Fotini and the Acropolis Tours team! Our company was split into three groups, with two visiting the archaeological site and one visiting the museum. Regardless of the location, the experience was exceptional. Our tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the history and cultural significance of the Acropolis. They made sure to bring the site to life, answering all of our questions with enthusiasm and providing us with a wealth of information about the various structures, their purpose, and the significance of each.Not only were our tour guides knowledgeable, but they were also kind and attentive to all of our needs. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and that we had an enjoyable experience. The tour was well-organized and efficient, and all of us were able to see all of the highlights of the Acropolis and the museum in a relaxed and stress-free environment.I would highly recommend this tour company to anyone looking to visit the Acropolis and learn more about its fascinating history and culture. Fotini is amazing and her team of knowledgeable and friendly guides will make your experience unforgettable. Thank you Fotini and Acropolis Tours for a wonderful tour!

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!

Professional and expert guide We hired Fotini for a last-minute private Acropolis tour and she was an absolute professional (and very chic!). She was very communicative with us via WhatsApp throughout the booking process, even as we booked very last minute, sending us clear instructions on where to meet. A former teacher, she's extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Acropolis and shared its fascinating story with help of images she brought along. Unlike other guides that we saw during our tour, she's also very conscious about your comfort and has identified the shadiest and least crowded places to stand when she's explaining things to you, as well as tidbits like the most functional water vending machine.

Klassieke Athene op zijn best We hebben genoten van de rondleiding op en rondom de Acropolis.Je spontane, levendige en interactieve stijl zorgden ervoor dat wij het eerste bezoek aan Athene als "fantastisch" hebben ervaren. Dankjewel!

Perfecte avond in Athene! Super informatieve toer geboekt bij Tine, geboekt via Meet in Athens. Fijn om in het Nederlands een uitgebreide toelichting te krijgen, met veel informatie. De Akropolis bezocht in de avond. Met prachtig zonlicht en minder warm en aansluitend heerlijk gegeten in de gezellige wijk Plaka. Kortom, een perfecte avond in Athene!

Excellent educational tour Fotini was a fabulous guide. It was so hot the day we toured and she was ever mindful to find us what ever shade she could. We were a party of 8 including 4 teenage girls. She engaged them and built the history of Acropolis in an easy to follow manner. We couldn't have been more pleased with her.
