Overview
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.
What to Expect
After booking your selected tour, board a deluxe coach in central Athens for a sightseeing tour.

Then, set off to drive by sights such as the Greek Parliament, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Panathenaic Stadium, and more as your guide shares their history.

Next, view the exterior of the second-century Temple of Olympian Zeus on foot before visiting the UNESCO-listed Acropolis. Stroll around the key monuments, including the Parthenon and Temple of Athena Nike, and hear from your guide how they symbolize Athens’ heyday during the fifth century BC.

After free time to wander independently, your tour concludes at the starting point.

Morning Tour with Acropolis Museum
If you’ve upgraded for a morning visit to the Acropolis Museum, head here after the Acropolis. Inside, you can explore independently, admiring the best of the 4,000 sculptures and artifacts, including the incredible Parthenon friezes.

Excellent tour guide, but not enough time

Our guide was fantastic, and I'm annoyed I can't remember her name to sing her praises! She handled the group well, there seems to always be one or two who forgets it's a group and not 1:1, and she answered every question. Very impressed she...More

Too many people and adults acting like 5 year old children

We were picked up at our hotel and brought to a collective meeting point where people were dispatched to different buses. Despite being fairly close to the starting point of the tour, it took 1.5 hours from pickup to actually start the tour. We had...More
