Athens (Piraeus) Temple of Olympian Zeus Excursion Reviews

Though only a few columns remain of the Temple of Olympian Zeus, this massive ode to the king of the Olympian gods is still well worth a visit.
OK the walkways are uneven and it's mountain climbing.
OK the walkways are uneven and it's mountain climbing. They do a great job making it easy but if you want to go all the way to the top you are on your own. But worth the climb.

Pretty, but rushed due to the tour running late.
Pretty, but rushed due to the tour running late. Best advice: If you want to see a lot, book a private tour. Too many people and too much to see in Athens for a cruise tour.

Athens (Piraeus), Greece – We booked the Ancient Athens, Plaka and Shopping with Royal Caribbean, this tour was a waste of money, our tour guide was not knowledgeable the tour was rushed. Passengers were held on the ship for a few hours and were not allowed to leave the cruise ship all passengers’ passports were taken up by staff and were handed over to the Greece Port Authorities we were not allowed to clear the ship until each passport had been viewed by Greece Port Authorities which caused all excursion to be delayed. Royal Caribbean did an outstanding job in handling this process and we were given the additional hours back by Royal (we stayed in Athens longer). However, our tour guide rushed us and shorten our excursion. Never again will I book my excursion via Royal Caribbean. Read Less

Our tour guide was wonderful and her English was spectacular! The history that she filled us in on as we toured was priceless. The Acropolis Site is a must to go and see and the Panathenaic Stadium was amazing! All made of marble. The tour around the city was also great as it was on a Sunday so the traffic was not too bad and our bus was able to stop at a couple of places to let us out to go and take pictures. Would highly recommend this tour. Read Less
