Exceptional guidance and organization - we've had a really good time in Acropolis with the help of our experienced guide, he gave us enough information not to get bored and didn't rush us from one place to the other, so the atmosphere in general was very pleasant and relaxed. He took us from the other side of Acropolis so we could comfortably walk around - for this I’m very grateful, cause we were with my husband’s mother (she is 70) so in this age we didn't want her to get carried away by the crowd. We were told before to take some water and sun protective cream, I did take a small bottle but we ended up finishing it in 10 minutes, it's hot there and we had to walk under the sun and climb the stairs (quite challenging experience, wouldn’t be a good choice for people with walking disabilities as the place is not equipped with rails) and I got my shoulders burnt quickly, so don't leave without a good layer of sun protection and few bottles of water. But still I would love to do it again, that place has amazing energy!

This is something you can't skip if you are in Athens! The Akropolis dominates Athens and can be seen from any part of the city. It is definitely worth making the effort to up to the site and see this fantastic monument. We were a little pressed for time, that's why this tour was perfect for us. In an hour and a half we managed to have a look at all the special sughts of the Akropolis.The whole area was well laid out for viewing the historic ruins, but be careful not to stray off the permitted areas and don't touch! The security people give warnings by blowing whistles. The view of Athens is panoramic. The view from the Akropolis is breathtaking and the ruins are just unbelievable. There is much symbolism to be explained and our guide did it perfectly. Her talk did give me a huge sense of standing next to an important piece of Greek history). It definitely is the best sight in Athens. Although you have to watch out for pickpockets as the place is overcrowded. Don't miss the chance to visit this place!

What I like the most - plenty of free time walking around Acropolis, no pushy-rushy attitude, everything was organized in the most comfortable way. Sunscreen is a must, we took in August and it was scorching hot!
