Visiting the Acropolis was the main reason we wanted to visit Athens. We booked this private tour during winter season, the weather was great, not too hot, not too cold, but more importantly the volume of people was much more manageable to see the sights without huge crowds. The Acropolis was one of the highlights of our holiday to Athens and we are glad we booked a private guided tour as it was much more enjoyable to have a guide all for ourselves.

If you are worried about the climb up like i did, i will say that the climb up is much easier than anticipated and well worth the effort. The views from up there are stunning. The site is currently being restored, still the beauty of it is breath-taking. Book a private tour if you feel anxious about being with others in a group. The tour did not disappoint, i am glad i opted for this one. Our guide was reassuring me all the way up and provided me with a ton of interesting information regarding the history of the Acropolis.

We booked this private walking tour as a family of four. The views were astonishing the climbing was a little slippery but not that bad. Our guide kept our daughter entertained throughout the tour. Wear comfy shoes.

The Acropolis is the main have-to-see in Athens. We are glad we booked a guided tour instead of visiting by ourselves,  the guide was knowledgeable and gave us all the bits we needed to know. Wear decent walking shoes, the views are beyond worth it!

We are an elderly couple wanting to visit Acropolis, we've heard how strenuous walking up is and with my wife's knee problems we decided to book a private tour. We are glad we booked a private guided tour, the guide took a few stops along the way to let us take a breath while explaining to us the ancient history of the site. A huge thank you to our guide Kostas and to Key Tours for accommodating our needs.
