It goes without saying that no one can leave Athens if he hasn't visited "the sacred rock", Acropolis. What better chance to do it than the early access visit, far from the crowds with this small-group mythology tour. The Acropolis was home to temples and sanctuaries throughout recorded history and is a symbol of the city of Athens. Its religious importance was paramount to the ancient Greeks, and the buildings on the summit still capture the essence of their classical architecture.

Delve into the great history and the impressive mythology of ancient Greece on this small-group walking tour. With an expert guide, stroll around the ancient ruins of the stunning, UNESCO-listed Acropolis. Admire incredible views of the Parthenon, a paradigm of architectural and artistic perfection, and learn about its history and importance for the ancient Athenians. Explore the Theater of Dionysus, the birthplace of dramatic and comic art, as well as the social and political heart of Athens in ancient times. Marvel at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and get a sense of ancient artistic interests. Get close to important sights, such as the Propylaea gateway, Erechtheion and Temple of Athena Nike. Pause to take photos of these glamorous ruins and learn their great history from your expert guide. Once at the summit of the Acropolis hill, take in the sweeping panoramas of the capital of Greece. Learn about the excavations and get an insight into the citadel's ruins.

Acropolis is this historic place in Athens you cannot miss – so join us to explore its many different sites in the best way and become a history buff if you aren't already.

Just wanted to reassure any visitors who might think the climb to the top is too difficult. I was worried to the point that I nearly didn't go. However the walk was quite easy, our guide was very reassuring and helped us all throughout the way. The view from the top is amazing. I highly recommend this tour.

Great tour, the guide was great. This is a must see sight when in Athens. The climb up was not too hard but do wear sporty clothing and shoes and bring a bottle of water. You'll thank me later.

The Parthenon is the most important site to visit if you are in Athens, we are glad we booked a guided tour otherwise we wouldn't know the interesting and complicated history behind it's construction and 2.000 year old history.

Amazing experience. We visited in November so it was a bit quieter, I think summer would be much busier. Our guide Kostas was awesome, he made the tour memorable for all of us.

This is our second time visiting the Parthenon, as the first time we went all by ourselves without a guide, what a difference a guided tour makes. The history of Athens came alive infront of our eyes.

I booked this tour for my family of five. I am a bit late with this review but here it goes. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide, Kostas, helped us keep our 2 year old entertained throughout the tour, not an easy feat.
