Worst excursion ever.
Sail Date: April 2019
Worst excursion ever. The tour guide was virtually unintelligable due to her thick accent. She walked so fast at points that our group was spread out of several blocks and some got lost and went back to the ship on their own. We ... Read More
Worst excursion ever. The tour guide was virtually unintelligable due to her thick accent. She walked so fast at points that our group was spread out of several blocks and some got lost and went back to the ship on their own. We didn't go anywhere with this tour that we couldn't have done on our own. Really a bad experience, although the Archeological Museum was terrific, we could have just taken a cab and done that. It would have been much better. Read Less

It's going to get better. The best pieces are not at this museum. See Royal Museum in London or Metropolitan Museum in NYC for Greece's best artifacts stolen so over a century ago

Sail Date: June 2018
Fantastic place that I would love to return for more of a tour with a whole day. Such ancient history. Very unique design to Museum. Can't wait for actual excavations to open to public.

We went on our own to museum, dropped off and pick up by PK's driver. The museum completes the Acropolis experience in Athens, but you need to go to the British Museum.
