    This review is 2 years too late! We took this trip in Oct 2014 and our tour guide was Kostas. It was and amazing tour and Kostas was very knowledgable, relatable and friendly. There was a lot of walking....a lot. So be prepared and wear comfy shoes. The Acropolis is crazy busy with tourist and keep in mind you are walking uphill...a long way so I don't recommend sandles. There is a point where you are walking up stairs and its slippery with not much traction so be careful if you are clumsy. We had already walked around the Temple of Zeus the day before because our hotel was right across the street, but going with Kostas made it so much better. Yes you can walk around yourself and not pay for a guide, but to hear the stories and legends of this amazing city while looking at sites you only read about in books is a better experience all around and definitley worth the money.

    Our tour guide Aris was very knowledgeable. Great tour. Saw a lot of the major sites. The duration of the tour was just right- not too long and not too short. It ended early enough in the afternoon for you to spend the rest of the day/night exploring the rest of the city. Highly recommend!

    The guide was very knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about the history of the city. Despite the heat (it was 37C in Athens that day), it was worth every minute. She also found us shade (we needed it) and did most of the talking there. I highly recommend this tour.
