Great experience. Beautiful little city of what it used to be and what it continues to be. Touring with a private Israeli guide who also speaks a bit of Arabic and knows many of the shopkeepers. Definitely should explore in any trip to Israel.
One of the shinest place for touch the MidAges, knights and castles, very wide stone walls and arch ceillings, all the imagination of a Mid age and crussader's time.... just without a wild smell of that times.
it is really nice to walk in the market of Akko or in the marina ! Akko is a city which offers many good and not expensive Humus resturants and even some great high level chefs resturants.It is a multi culture city and you can...More
We've just spent 3 nights in old Akko and it's the perfect base to see part of the North of Israel. Firstly it's so lovely just wandering the old unspoiled streets and alleyways with lots of arches and tunnels. Then there's all the sights including...More
A great place to spent several hours. The walls are a delight to walk around and there are lots of museums and places of interest. Lots of local street food served at quaont stalls. the alley ways are a real maze and although you can...More
If you love history, then Akko is your town. A true fortress city with remnants of the crusaders and the ottomans. A souk featuring narrow cobbled streets and food stalls is where you should grab an authentic Falafel. I did not have enough time to...More

I'd say it depends on a few factors. We didn't hire a guide and had relatively little issue getting ourselves around to the sites we wanted to check out (they have maps at the visitor centers that are quite helpful). We also availed ourselves of the audio tours (via handheld players/headsets) at the Citadel (and underground Crusader City), which was great. I forget if we paid extra for that or if it was included in the cost of admission.
If you want more history as you're walking between the sites, and then at some of the sites that don't have, say, audio guides, I'm sure it'd be good to have a guide. Or if you want to be able to get around without any problems at all (i.e., getting "lost"), having a guide would be useful. If you're keen to do things on your own and don't mind looking up some info on your own before or after visiting, I would say you'd be find without a guide.
As for the sites being wheelchair accessible, I'm afraid I can't help you there as I don't remember. Good luck, and enjoy Akko!
