Easy to use App to purchase ticket. Bus itself was clean and on time. Went to all the main attractions in city. Line 2 & 3 [color coded] took you to see the cruise port and the beach shorline. Headphones explaining what you see only clarifies main attractions, however, either relays before the actual site or after passing. In between there is music. Would be better experience if it relayed constant commentary on what you are seeing as you go from site to site.

I liked the ability to avoid all the ling lines to purchase tickets. It was also convienent to bundle sites onto one purchase. I did not like having to download an App to access the tiickets. There wasn't a clear identification on the app as to which ticket went to each particular site. The audio tour was difficult to coordinate with the display in the museum.

Having tickets to thenAcropolis in hand allowed us to arrive early, entrer from the now preferred south slopes entrance, and beat most of the crowds. The walking tour was informative but honestly found the map a little hard to,use, arrived at sites before or after we thought we would, missed some altogether. Might just take some practice by us.

Stop the fake tour guides pulling apart the barricades and walking people through. These cheats are paying 10 euro to skip the line. Stop letting big chunks of people through at a time. Have a couple of entrances. It's a popular site you're making a killing with what you charge. You can make it more professional. Not really a big fan of Athens. Love the islands though.

Explore ancient Greek history

The Acropolis is a stunning Athenian temple complex located on a rocky outcrop above the city. Stop by the ruins of legendary structures like the Propylaea, the entrance to the ancient temple of Parthenon. Dedicated to Athena, the Parthenon’s main function was to shelter the monumental statue of Athena that was made by Pheidias out of gold and ivory.

Temples in the Acropolis

Wander across the once-sacred halls of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion. The Odeon of Herodes Atticus will leave you in awe. The large amphitheater was built in AD 161 by wealthy Roman Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife Regilla and is still used to this day for concerts and other events. You have the option to include a mobile audio guide in case you're looking to add some insights to your tour.
