activity info

Beat the heat and the crowds by accessing the Acropolis early in the morning with your expert guide on this small-group tour. Meet your guide at Key Tours office, and reach the south slope of the Acropolis, where you will admire the Dionysus Sanctuary and Dionysus Theater. Walk up the hill leading to the Acropolis significant site and have your camera ready for snapping photos of the historical monuments of Acropolis, including the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, and the Pedestal of Agrippa.

Having explored the Acropolis site and going downhill, you will admire significant sights of the capital of Greece, including the Ancient Agora and the National Observatory of Athens. Then, you will enter and walk through the unique district of the city, Plaka. For a while, forget the city sounds. Go around Anafiotika, the topmost neighborhood of Plaka and discover with your guide its tranquil, picturesque, and mystic hidden corners. Stroll around the innumerable little alleys and admire the old whitewashed mansions with the carved wooden or imposing iron doors and the colorful painted shutter. Find hidden gems of unspoiled beauty and magnificent views and learn secrets unknown even to many Athenians.

After a while, you will arrive at the Bathhouse of the Winds, the only public bath of Athens surviving at the present days. It dates from the first period of Turkish rule (1453 – 1669) and stands near the Roman forum and the Tower of the Winds. Passing by the Roman Forum, the Fethiye Mosque Museum and the Hadrian's Library, you will end up at Monastiraki Square, perhaps the oldest surviving square of the city.

After the end of the tour, you can visit the flea market, one of the best places to buy just about anything or continue strolling and enjoy your lunch or your coffee at one of the little, picturesque shops, creating memories of a lifetime.

Kostas our guide was a great guide, he gave us a lot of information on the sites we visited and he answered all our questions, he even helped us take some pictures and suggested some restaurants. If you ever visit Athens, you should visit Acropolis, it was stunning and well worth the money.

Great knowledge and understanding of the history of Acropolis. Kostas our guide, made this tour exciting with his wealth of information. Not only did we get the important information, we jumped all the queues. This gives you more time to explore this amazing city.

We were very happy with our tour. I've been to the Parthenon before and was amazed at how much I had missed by not having a guide.

Sublime ! Il faut le voir une fois dans sa vie. Nous avons eu de la chance car il y a nettement moins de monde à cette période de l’année.

We really enjoyed our very informative tour by our lovely guide. My 8-year-old was very impressed also with the tour. Not only was the tour excellent but our guide recommended a excellent place to have lunch and I want to thank her for the great recommendation.
