Kid Friendly: Yes. Kids will love this tour, as long as they are over 6 or 7 years old.
With guests with mobility restrictions we will make arrangements for the use of the lift at the Acropolis on a complimentary basis, of course, and with presentation of some sort of medical certificate. This approval will reach us on the same morning of the tour because it has to do with winds and weather. The use of the lift will save you half of the steps. Still, there will be some uneven ground to be covered (approx. 300 meters), but we have had great feedback from past guests using the lift.

A visit to the Acropolis, combined with a leisurely walk and a fun game in Plaka !
Looking for a more interesting way to see the highlight of Athens (the Acropolis and the Parthenon) and play games inspired by ancient Greek art and culture? Here's an experience you won't want to miss.
Take a quick, fun tour of the Acropolis and then engage in some amusing and original activities, based on the comedies of ancient playwright Aristophanes, involving teamwork, imagination and quick thinking.
Your activity starts at the Acropolis, the most imitated building ever built and the Unesco Symbol. After the visit to the complex of ruins and the Theatre of Dionysus, you'll have the chance to explore the charming district of Plaka and take part in two super fun activities based on the comedies of Aristophanes. The works of this great playwright are more relevant than ever, considering the current social and economic situation, not only in Athens but on a global level.
These activities take place in corners of Plaka far from the beaten path, where a professional storyteller will give you a short performance based on the comedies of Aristophanes. Then you will be split in teams to work together - and against each other - to complete tasks inspired by these wonderful ancient stories. The quickest and most imaginative team will be the winner!
