Tour Details

See the Heart of Athens

This comprehensive city tour takes you to the modern sights in the heart of Athens and the most important ancient sights that have been standing in the city for millennia. The tour concludes at the Acropolis which is one of the most visited and culturally revered ancient sights in the world. It continues to stand higher than the metropolis built around it, offering panoramic views of the entire capital.

Modern and Ancient Highlights

Start at the Syntagma metro station for a 10-minute tour inside of the station’s museum. Archaeological artifacts uncovered during the metro’s construction offer insight into daily life here thousands of years ago. The next stop is the Greek Parliament, followed by the Monument to the Unknown Soldier where you will watch the Changing of the Guards.

The walk continues to the National Gardens of Athens, Zappeion, Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch. The route passes by the Plaka district to reach the next and final stop: the Acropolis.

Skip-the-Line Access

Entrance tickets are not included in the tour fee and the ticket costs will be owed to the tour guide before the tour begins. We save you time by buying entrance tickets in advance so you can skip the lines. This service is provided at no extra cost. Note that children under 18 years old have free admission to the Acropolis and all the archaeological sights.

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.

During your tour, you’ll gain insight into the significance of its historic monuments including the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple and other significant sights including the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Agora, the National Observatory of Athens and the city’s scenic hills: Filoppapos, Mars, and Pnyx.

The tour ends at the Acropolis.

Monasteries

I didn’t realize until I booked the trip that it was 5.5 hrs each way. I almost just said “heck with it” the day before and stayed in Athens, but I dragged my tired corpse out of bed and got on the train. So glad...

Great introduction to Meteora

Our guide Jim—Greek, but named after American-born grandfather—was fabulous. My docent partner was in awe of his ability to be witty and informative for four hours. His tour of the 7c church was absolutely splendid. Loved visiting the hermit caves, too. We were on our...

Excellent Service!

A fully equipped and experienced team of professionals. An amazing experience if you find yourself at Trikala or Kalampaka. Seek out George, The Great Driver and Eva, The Beautiful Guide and you won't regret it.

To be done once in a lifetime

The guide Katerina was very nice and friendly. The trip by train was very tiring though. Should definitely opt for a first class. But the tour itself was very enriching with breathtaking views.

Watch out for ticket details

I booked this tour through GET YOUR GUIDE which I thought included the rail tickets from Athens. The company doing the tour was Visit Meteora which having a similar advertisment to about two others says Full-Day Rail Tour to Meteora. This is misleading as it...

Amazing Meteora

I visited Meteora in Dec. 2018 and booked a Meteora train2train tour. Since it's not a touristic period, it turned out that there was only me in the train2train tour, but they still organized it even for only one person. There was a whole minivan...
