A thorough, early morning visit of the Acropolis, followed by a wonderful walk through the unknown alleys and the secret corners of  Plaka!


Skip-the-Line-Access: The Acropolis

The entrance tickets are not included in the tours fee because there are various rates depending on participants (students, children etc.), on the season (high, low) and there is free entrance on some specific dates throughout the year. However, we provide you with a skip-the line-service at no extra cost. We buy the tickets in advance so you skip the lines and have immediate access to the sights listed on the tour. Please make sure you have enough cash (Euros) with you to purchase the tickets from us at the beginning of your tour. Note that guests under 18 years and students from EU countries (with current student ID) have free admission to the Acropolis and all the archaeological sites.

Beat the heat and the crowds by visiting the Acropolis early in the morning! Entering on the south slope of the Acropolis, you’ll visit the Dionysus Sanctuary and Dionysus Theater before you walk up the slope leading to the Acropolis monuments. Panoramic views of the city will be perfect for Instagram-ready photos.   As you explore the Acropolis with your guide, you’ll gain insight into the significance of its historic monuments including the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaia and the Nike Temple. 
Note: After the first part of the tour ends at the Acropolis you will have time to take more photos before continuing your walk through the alleys of the Plaka.  Before the second part of your tour begins, you may get a snack or a drink. 

Plaka: The Neighborhood of the Gods 

Enter the most unique part of the city and discover with your knowledgeable local guide, its tranquil, picturesque and mystic hidden corners. For a while, forget the city sounds and get the feeling that you are walking through the alleys of a Cycladic island, however, with a history of over 3000 years! Myth and history are intertwined with snapshots from the modern culture of Athens. Anafiotika, Plaka’s hidden gem and all its worth-seeing treasures, will be revealed to you with the help of your guide, while experiencing an unforgettable journey of discovery. Connect the dots between “yesterday” and “today” by letting your guide unveil unknown parts of history and significant details on historical buildings, beautiful old chapels and numerous monuments. Find hidden gems of unspoiled beauty and magnificent views and learn secrets unknown even to many Athenians. The tour ends at the lively, touristy area of Monastiraki square, where you will discover the Flea Market and lots of souvenir shops at approx. 12:00 noon.
