Athens in a Day
What happens if it's raining?
Our tours happen rain or shine. Our guides are great at adapting their route during changes of weather. Please bring an umbrella.
I would like to start at a different time. Is this possible?
We begin early to avoid more crowded times and hot weather at the Acropolis. For this reason, we advise an early start time.
What is included? Will there be any costs to cover on the day?
Your entrance fees and a local snack/refreshment is included. You will be expected to cover the cost of your lunch and any additional refreshments.
What is the Acropolis Combined ticket and how does it work?
Where does the tour end?
This may depend on your guide, but we usually end in the Monastiraki neighborhood.
Can I request a car service?
We find this tour best suited on foot as much of the areas are pedestrianized. If you require a car service for mobility reasons, please let us know in your clients notes and we can arrange it for you.
We are coming from the cruise terminal. Can we arrange a pick up service?
Yes. Please see our alternative shore excursion product here.
