If you are planning to visit the Acropolis with young children and you are hesitant, I beg you to reconsider!
Had we not taken the full day tour, we would not learned about interesting facts in the Acropolis and the different districts of Athens. The tour gave us a very good perspective and overview of Athens so much so that we were walking to our destinations on a daily basis. We felt like we were locals! I wholeheartedly recommend booking a tour with Greeking.me.
We did a private family tour of the Acropolis, museum, and Agora. The email communication from the company during booking process was superb. This company does a great job with children. Our guide was impressive, Eva. She was an archeologist full of knowledge. We loved it.
