Highlights of Athens with a Private Guide

Live an unforgettable experience in the city that is considered the cradle of Western Civilization! This day tour in Athens with a Private Guide takes you to the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, Roman Agora and the Plaka area. Included are guiding services during the 6-hour private tour and transfers from and to the hotel or airport by car. Note the Acropolis area is a car-free zone so we will be walking mostly.


We will start our highlights of Athens tour from the lobby of your hotel or the airport. We head for the Acropolis (either by car, by foot or by metro) where you explore this very special monument on foot. Descend the Acropolis hill and walk towards Aeropagus or Mars Hill. It once functioned as a high court and this is where Apostle Paul delivered a speech. From here we admire the Ancient Agora, an area where the great philosophers walked and more ancient monuments can be found. We continue our walk to the Roman Agora an the cosy, authentic Plaka Area. Time for lunch! We pause at a good tavern where you savor the flavors of Greek authentic food and drink! Final destination: Acropolis Museum, one of the top museums in the world!

A Recent Review of this tour

WOW!!! We're we lucky today with our amazing guide, Chantel. She was absolutely fantastic. We learned so much from her about Greek history, culture, and current ways of light. Chantel is a very delightful person. She more than met our expectations on our tour of Athens. You would be very lucky to be able to reserve a tour with her.
