Visit the sacred Acropolis Rock, where you can view the Parthenon, the symbol of Ancient Greek Democracy, the Erechteion, the mysterious cult center of Athene, the revamped Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Theatre of Dionysus, the birthplace of Drama and Tragedy.

And the tour will continue with a visit to the spectacular New Acropolis Museum, a modern architectural jewel in the heart of what used to be Ancient Athens, where guests can look into the history of the city that gave the world Art, Democracy and Enlightenment.

A Recent Review of this tour

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Panos! Panos is knowledgeable, energetic, kind, patient and fun to be with. He clearly loves his city and its history and treasures, and his profession as a licensed guide. Panos speaks perfect English (without an accent), a big plus for us! It was a delight to have him as our guide, and our only regret was that he wasn't able to accept our offer to take him to lunch after the tour had ended.
