Our taxi driver took us around the city. Ask to see the changing of the guard and take a video camera. Pomp and ceremony at its best. Loved it

The tour is great, but always a little leery about not booking through the cruise line in case something goes wrong. We have used Viator in the States and in Sicily so we were happy enough with them to take the chance.

Was impressed with tour on little train first all around the port and through the city then the bus trip to Athens seeing so many historical buildings and Olympic stadiums.wished I'd had more time to see the Acropolis maybe next time.also visited the Panathenic stadium so fantastic these buildings are still standing after all these centuries. Only down side was all the open areas so shabby and untidy also the abanded airport with immigrants.for the amount of cruise ships and visitors time these tourist areas were tidied up. Read Less

Too much crammed into too little time. The driving was long. The city itself is not pretty. The ruins and the museum were awesome. Take focused, targeted tours, not the big general one.

A quick tour of the city where the guide pointed out a few of the landmark. We then took ourselves up to the Acropolis. Amazing. Very hot and dry, and lots of tourists with selfie sticks, grrrrr! We got lost coming down the hill and I'm sure we circumnavigated the Acropolis 3 times before we found our way back to the main district near where we to meet up for the bus back. A great city and I understand why the Greeks have no money, how do they keep these great sites open? Read Less
