    Our tour of the acropolis and museum was fantastic. We learned so much and it was so worth it having a guide to teach us things and help us navigate the giant historical landmark. Our tour guide, Angela, was amazing and had so many interesting facts about the history of Athens, its people, and Greek mythology. Big shout out to her for giving us a fantastic tour!
