cancellation policy

You can cancel these tickets up to 24 hours before the experience begins and get a full refund.

Your ticket includes first entry to the Acropolis. On your way up the hill, take in sights of iconic theaters of Dionysus and Herodes Atticus, then arrive at the Parthenon before the majority of the crowds. Your guide will give you a full Parthenon tour and take you past the major sites on the hill. These include the Monumental Gateway, Erechtheum, and the Temple of Nike Athena. Don't forget to carry a camera with you; you’ll want to capture the stunning views over the city!

Once you leave the Acropolis, enter the ancient Agora of Greece with skip-the-line tickets. This used to be the commercial center of the old city and is filled with ruins dating back to 2,500 years. Follow your guide and listen to them bring the ruins to life before stopping at the Temple of Hephaestus - one of the few temples to be almost entirely preserved.

The last stop of the day is Plaka, home to one of the oldest streets in the world. Your guide will take you around and show you an amazing view of the Roman Agora and Tower of the Winds (the first meteorological station in the world), Lysicrates Monument, the Arch of Hadrian, and the Melina Merkouri Cafe.
