Awful courier and disgusting lunch. Wish we had not done this trip. A bit of a waste of money for a hugely over priced excursion.

We booked a day tour with Private Greek Tours - Nikos and his team were very professional. We had a great driver and a clean, new touring van. We also hired a tour guide from The Travel Insiders to provide us with insight at the Acropolis and other Greek sites. This was a wonderful day filled with a lot of information. Our guide worked well with the driver to get us close to the back entrance to the Acropolis. He also picked us up there to shorten our walk down. There is a lot of walking there. We also went to see the changing of the guards and walked through Plaka. It was an amazing tour we will not soon forget. Read Less

Spent more time on the bus than anything else. The Acropolis is fantastic. Didn't really care for the shopping area as it was mainly tourist traps and restaurants. Did enjoy an amazing Greek salad.

I am sorry, but I hated Athens. It is crowded, dirty and awful. We went to The Acropolis and it was like downtown NYC. It was so crowded trying to walk up to the Parthenon that I got claustrophobic. I got separated from my husband and we didn’t find each other for over an hour. Rick Steves recommends getting there before 9 or after 4-5. That may help. We took the Hop-On bus and it was a constant traffic jam. Sorry, this wasn’t my thing. Read Less

We used the Hop-on-Hop-off to get to the Acropolis and then to get back to the ship. We used the Rick Steve's app to tour the Acropolis and Ancient Agora. The we use FreeTour to do a walking food tour in the Plaka. All good fun.

We love Athens and have stayed there before. We took a local bus from near the Port Gate to the Metro- locals are friendly and tell you where to get off. Then into the centre, getting off at Thissio it is easy to take the pedestrianised walk along the side of the Parthenon- looking up at that you cannot but marvel at this ancient city. Further walking through the Plaka district is charming, and a picnic lunch sitting on a ruin was fun. A final glass of Greek wine in a trendy wine bar completed our day before hopping back on the metro at Monastiraki for the return journey back to the Port. Read Less

Athens is a very cool city, but it is 30-40 minutes from the port. We were disappointed that we did not get to see the Acropolis because it was closed due to a lightning storm in the area.
