I highly suggest this tour for anyone looking to learn more about Athens huge history and the historical significance of the Parthenon. There is so much cool history here. Our guide provided us with all the important historical details we needed in such a way that we never got bored or tired. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Acropolis Museum, it's a new modern and clean building, structured in a way that helps you move around and explore each section. The driver was an excellent driver, the streets close to the Parthenon are extremely narrow and he was able to navigate them without any issue.

Excellent tour, our guide was knowledgeable. The Acropolis was amazing, but be aware it’s quite a climb up hills which can be a challenge. Definitely recommend this tour and the tour guide.
