About
Seeing Athens' highlights in half a day is nearly impossible on your own. This guided tour covers them with ease, making it ideal for time-pressed visitors. After a panoramic coach tour around landmarks including the Parliament and Panathenaic Stadium, you switch to foot to explore the highlights of the UNESCO-listed Acropolis. A choice of departures and an upgrade for a morning visit to the Acropolis Museum provide added flexibility.

Disappointed
Jul 2021
Before I give you my opinion of the tour I’d like to say that the lady tour guide was nice however, the tour was horrible. I don’t recommend the tour simply because we wasted time standing in the hot sun while the tour guide gave history presentation that seemed to last over 20 minutes before we headed to the acropolis; it took way too long. It looked like the rest of the tourist were not happy with the waiting experience. (Disclosure I could be wrong with that assessment)

The speakers on the tour bus was not audible either because she was too close the mic or the sound was not properly adjusted about 80% of what she said on tour bus was not audible. That being said I was thankful (even if it my review doesn’t sound like it). Our overall experience so far has been great. Athens is beautiful, the people we met are very friendly, and the food is delicious.

I recommend if you have time and do your due diligence take a cab (depending where your hotel is) and go at your own pace. We only had 3 days in Athens so thought a tour would cover what we wanted to see.

Joy was a joy
Having a bus drive you around to each destination was great to have in 100 degree heat. While off the bus we learned so much from Joy. She was personable and knowledgeable and really took care of her group.

Amazing tour!
We had a fantastic day on this tour made all the better by Joy our wonderful tour guide. She was so good with our children (11, 6 & 1) and has a extensive and fascinating knowledge of Athens and all the sights on the tour. It was great to have Joy explaining the history of the Acropolis rather than just walking round. She definatly made the tour worth the money. Wonderful memories made. Thank you.

1 a Fabulous Tour with a Fantastic guide, named Joy!
Absolutely wonderful tour for my 11yr old son and me.
Joy, the tour guide was so filled with a deep knowledge & love of Athens & presented the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum with that storyteller's gift, that only comes with genuine passion & curiosity for the subject matter. She was also very adept at handling kid's waning interest in the high heat of Athens. Whenever my son's mind would wander, Joy came up with some very creative way to re-engage him.
The small luxury van was always on time and very comfortable.
Also, very reasonably priced.
Can't say enough!
Great Job! When I come back with the 2nd half of family, I will definitely use Chat Tours and Joy!

Jul 2020 • Family
Arrival at Acropolis, the view of the ruins, the view of Aegean sea from the height of the fortified city. Our guide Panagiana (hope I spelled it correctly) was not only knowledgable, but enthusiastic about the history, architecture, symbolidm, exhibiting love and pride for her country. It was a wonderful experience- thank you!

Great tour
Jul 2020 • Family
We did this tour on the 6th of July 2020.
Our guide (Maria Anna) was really great. She gave us a lot of informations and also made the tour interesting for our kids(11 and 8 years old).

At the beginning she took us on a city tour by bus and she showed us old and new buildings and places (Temple of Zeus, Stadium, Syntagma Square, The Parliament, National Gardens etc).

After the bus tour we arrived at Acropolis where we saw the masterpieces of Antiquity and we found out many interesting things about the places we learned from the school books.

Maria Anna is a Archaeology graduate so she has many knowledges not only about Athens history, but also about Greek history.

Although we visited Athens during this difficult period, this tour was great.
We found out many interesting things and also we visited these great places without the usual crowds around.
Maria Anna showed us which are the perfect spots from which we could take really nice pictures, so we left with great memories.

I would definitely recommend this tour, even for families with children.

Just returned from half day sightseeing tour with Acropolis with tour guide Nancy who was a fountain of knowledge. Made the sights in Athens especially those in the Acropolis more meaningful. Nancy is one of the best tour guides I have ever had. Cannot praise her enough

Great overview of Athens & the Acropolis
Jan 2020 • Solo
This tour was a great way to learn quite a bit about Athens in only a half day. The best part of the tour was our guide, a gentleman who was very knowledgeable and spoke quite eloquently the entire time about the history, art, and architecture of Athens. The Acropolis museum was the perfect place to end and a fascinating experience. The bus was very new, clean, & comfortable with large windows for taking in the scenery. The tour was on time and very well organized. Highly recommended!
