What you can expect?

Our tour kicks off with – what else? – the sacred Acropolis hill and the very famous Acropolis Museum.With our expert tour guide by your side, you will learn everything about the monumental buildings of the Acropolis, including the godly Parthenon, the Temple of Nike, the Propylaea and the sacred Erechtheion. You will descend the Acropolis hill to reach the fascinating Acropolis Museum, where you will have the chance to admire exhibits and artifacts nearly 3.000 years old. Your ancient Athens wanderings won’t stop here, though. You will discover the Roman Agora and the pioneering technology of the Tower of Winds, as well as many other ancient buildings like the Library of Hadrian and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Explore the emblematic buildings of Athens’ neoclassical architecture by walking through Plaka -the “island” in the heart of the city of Athens & the multicolored Monastiraki with its vivid flea market where you can shop the ideal keepsake from your trip to Greece. You will dip your toes into 18th and 19th century Athens, by strolling Syntagma Square, the most popular meeting point in the city. You will breathe in the scent of the hundreds of plant species in the National Garden until you turn your eyes towards the Panathenaic Stadium, where the 1st modern Olympic Games took place! By the time we say goodbye, you’ll have seen the best of Athens on a tour that encompasses the city’s most important elements: history, architecture, ancient & modern life.

  • My son and I did the all day tour in Athens. Our guide, Xenia was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable without giving us an information overload. We really enjoyed it. Would recommend, seeing the sights without the history wouldn't have done them justice.

  • Had a wonderful day tour with Evita from Greeking.me. She guided us through the Acropolis and Parthenon, Acropolis Museum, Plaka District, Changing of the guards and more. She worked hard at keeping my 13 year old engaged and discussing Greek mythology with my 16 and 18 year old which they really enjoyed. We also had a great Greek lunch together. Thanks so much Evita and Greeking-me.

  • This tour was a great way to get a quick insight into the city, complete with lots of delicious food. Greeking.me were really responsive and very friendly to deal with. Elena, my guide, was lovely, friendly and very knowledgable about the city, Greece, the food and history. Everything was very well planned and thorough. I really enjoyed myself and would definitely recommend this tour.

  • This was an extremely worthwhile experience as you really get to know the different neighborhoods of Athens. Anastasia our guide studied archaeology at university so needless to say was very knowledgeable in regard to the city's ancient history; but she also led us expertly through the modern Athens.

  • Xenia, our guide, was a perfect match for us, since with all her expertise. We spent a perfect day starting with the Acropolis and the ancient Agora in the morning, with a very good (and very abundant) lunch only a stone's throw from Hephaistos Temple, and an afternoon stroll. This is a hearty recommendation to anyone who wishes to get to know Athens at first hand.

  • While in Athens in May 2018, we contracted with Greeking.me for two transfers and two tours. We were picked up at the airport and transported to our hotel, then later transferred from our hotel to our ship. The drivers were on time, very professional, and excellent drivers. We took a full day tour of the highlights of Athens with Marialena, who was equally wonderful. She made Greek mythology come alive! I highly recommend booking tours/transfers through Greeking.me.
