  • Discover Athens at your perfect pace, with insights from a private guide
  • Explore historic Athens and the Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Relax with air-conditioned door-to-door round-trip transportation

What to Expect
After your private guide collects you from your central hotel, your first stop is the Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Then, head to the Roman-era Temple of Olympian Zeus. Next, continue to the National Garden and pause outside the Hellenic Parliament. Admire the Changing of the Guard, which happens every hour. Stroll up the slopes of the ancient citadel to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis, home to spectacular buildings dating back to the peak of Athens’ power: the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, and so much more. Then visit the Acropolis Museum, which is home to thousands of ancient Greek artifacts found in the surrounding area. You tour ends when your minibus drops you back at your hotel.

Well worth doing. Eva was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. She brought the city, it’s history, sites and museum to life. If you have limited time in Athens then this is a must to enrich your visit.
