Really good because of our guide Kostas!! He was sooo good and knowledgeable! He is an archeologist very passionate about his job and he knew everything and gave us all the information. He works for "Key Tours", I think. Bravo!! Thank you so much, Kostas!! :)

We book this through a travel agent, a half day tour. We were picked up at our hotel by a large bus. The first 45 minutes I thought we had made a mistake booking this. We were viewing things through the bus window. Then we stopped at the Panathenaic Stadium. It was amazing. Our guide, Anastasia, was great, she told us lots about everything we saw. Then we walked through the Acropolis. Our group had 47 people. It was too large a group to handle with the crowds but Anastasia was great & handled it very well. We ended at the Acropolis museum. Everyone was tired but the tour was very good.

I enjoyed this tour very much. We were picked up at hotel then we were driven around Athens for introductory tour. Our first stop was the Stadium of Athens then we stopped at our main destination the Acropolis. There are quite a few steps to climb but we had plenty of time and guidance to make it to the top. Our guide Sophia handled a quite large group which was difficult to do so and I commend her for her effort and dedication. We had plenty of alone time to explore the citadel. We met our guide later in the afternoon in lower region of acropolis so we could visit the new Acropolis Museum. I enjoyed this museum very much and also the café. We had free entry to both Acropolis site and museum, lunch was not included on this tour. I recommend this tour highly. I may add in large groups Key Tours may consider getting audio guides in the future so we can clearly hear the tour guide.

Excellent tour of the Acropolis and of the Museum. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The Museum was very impressive. I strongly recommend the tour with Key Tours. Note that this tour would require a lot of walking and climbing stairs, so plan accordingly.

The half-day Athens City Tour & Acropolis Museum was a great way to spend our first full day in Athens. After a pickup at a hotel a few blocks from our own, we took a narrated bus tour of the major sites of central Athens with a brief photo op at the Olympic Stadium. Then it’s on to the Acropolis, for a steep climb to the top where -- despite windy, rainy, umbrella-destroying weather -- our guide, Anastasia, provided a colorful narrative of Athens’ signature attraction. After the guided tour, we had some time to explore the Acropolis on our own before reconvening a few blocks away at the gorgeous new Acropolis Museum, where Anastasia led a comprehensive guided tour before directing us back to the bus for the ride back to our hotel. It’s a well-planned tour that oriented us for the rest of our visit to the Grecian capital. Only complaint: no real opportunity to grab lunch or even a snack on a tour that lasted from 7:30 a.m., when the bus was scheduled to pick us up, and close to 3 p.m., when we were dropped off.
