The ear pieces are horrible. I was so disappointed in how difficult it was to hear the tour guide and to keep the device on your ear. Ear plugs are needed. The tour was good though

Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. However, there was so much information it was monotonous. Spent most of our time standing listening while all the other groups passed us on the way to the top. No beating any crowds. We got so bored we left the group and toured the museum on our own. Felt like I was studying for an Undergrad Degree in Anthropology.

Our guide was excellent - managing useful information and answering our questions with keeping the tour moving during unpredictable weather. Our guide enhanced our visit to the Acropolis and the museum.

Excellent tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. The early start was wonderful- we beat the crowds. Our guide Alex was fantastic.

Highly recommend this company. Great guide, small group (14) and be sure to do the late tourless crowded, hot and very beautiful time to be up!
