Private Tour: Athens City Highlights Including the Acropolis of Athens
From US$ 118.46

If you’d like to know more about Athens’ history and heritage, the easiest route is a private tour. Ask your guide the questions you want, travel at the pace that suits your group, and check off the city’s main attractions. This private Athens tour includes the Acropolis, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Panathenaic Stadium, the Changing of the Guard, and more.

What to Expect

After your private guide collects you from your central hotel, your first stop is the Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, followed by the Roman-era Temple of Olympian Zeus close by.

Next, continue to the National Garden and pause outside the Hellenic Parliament. Admire the Changing of the Guard, which happens every hour.

Stroll up the slopes of the ancient citadel to the UNESCO-listed Acropolis, home to spectacular buildings dating back to the peak of Athens’ power: the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, and so much more. As your minibus drops you back at your hotel, enjoy a new and richer understanding of Greek history and culture.

Excellent Private Tour

Our guide, Joy, was so incredibly knowledgeable. She is from Athens and was very passionate about her city and country. She gave us so much information. I will never forget Joy or this tour. It was worth every penny.
