Great FWIW but not for everyone
Jun 2020
I was in Greece pre-pandemic (June 2019) and took this deal - the e-ticket worked no problem; there weren't any lines when we went but I was still glad to have it loaded on my phone. The audio tour was fantastic for me personally. Will say that it's not for travelers wishing to pack a million activities into one day, or people who are honestly not that inclined to learn about the site beyond the tl;dr version. The segments are informative, one has to figure some things out on their own (which is honestly easy enough, but not time-efficient) and it requires constant fiddling with the phone by design. There is also not a highlights section/condensed version so you either listen to it all or randomly choose what to skip (I did the former - absolutely doable without info overload iirc). So yeah, not recommended on a super tight schedule, and this isn't the Sparknotes version some might want.

As I said, it was great for me. I had no download/reception issues (iirc I did take care of downloading everything ahead of time when possible, either way it worked well). I had a few orientation issues but the huge majority of the time it was clear when I should play each bit or what to look at, which is far more impressive than it probably sounds like all things considered. Definitely enriched my visit a whole lot and I personally did feel I got my money's worth. Will say that my partner wasn't so patient and in the end I had to summarize for him, but I'm not entirely sure whether it was a matter of patience, the fact that it was a bit weird to be both hooked to our phones on a couples trip, or an issue with the segments of the tour for anyone who is mostly tagging along.

e ticket for Acropolis and Cleo Muse audio tour
Oct 2020
e ticket worked perfectly, great. Cleo Muse audio tour also worked well however, I walked around again listening to the Rick Steves Audio tour and found his tour a little easier to follow, hence the 4/5 rather than a full 5. My visit was Oct 19 (not 2020) but the drop down doesn't go back that far. Overall I was very happy and would use again

Dear customer, Thank you very much for your feedback and your kind words. We are delighted to hear that you would use our app again. We are optimistic that next time you'll use it you will be amazed by our progress both in terms of booking service and of the app itself. Please note that our app and our tours have a different philosophy and procedures compared to Rick Steves. We think it's not quite fair to compare 2 apps that deliver a different approach of venues/sites. Thank you once again for your time to leave us your feedback and we look forward to se(rv)e you again! :) Warm regards, Ippokratis

So frustrating we didn’t use
2 stars only because the gentleman called me back after there was no answer on the support line. He tried to help but in the end it was not successful. I have an iPhone 11 & the app but not be compatible as each time I tried, it auto shutdown the app. Of course we were already in the Acropolis when I tried my iphone7. Too late as nothing would download. Tried to listen to my husbands who was having similar experience -it must load each one as you select them. It’s slow, not friendly and isn’t really a great guide to know where you are. I’d pay the money for a personal tour!!

Dear customer, please accept our apologies. We try to be available on multiple channels so we can provide support when our customers need it. We are terribly sorry that we could not asnwer your phone call immediately. Our developers are working on the app constantly, in order to improve it and make it compatible with the latest phones and system versions. We are sorry to hear that we could not resolve your issue. Since there is no WiFi and no adequate cellular coverage at the Acropolis, it is not possible for the app to stream or download the data. That is why we ask our customers to download the tours before they reach the site. We will be looking into the matter though, and we will use this as an example in order to improve both our support availability and our app.

AUDIO DOWNLOAD FAILED
Supposed to send us the instructions of how to proceed with this audio tour a week before arrival however we didn’t receive anything until I dropped them a reminder email few days before arrival. I downloaded the tour in Split, last stop before Athens and it showed successful but it failed me when we were up at the Acropolis with no network. My husband’s is working fine, probably because he downloaded in Athens before we stepped out of the hotel. Good thing that they have texts that you can read but with the scorching sun and slippery marble ground, I can only walked around the Acropolis taking photos without the audio guide. I read the texts a day after our Acropolis visit but it has lost its purpose.

Dear customer, thank you for taking the time to review our product! Indeed, we send the instructions for the audio guide activation and download one week before the selected date. We are terribly sorry that you did not receive our message and thank you for bringing this to our attention. Regarding the issue with the offline use of the tour on your device, feel free to contact us for this matter so we can look into it and hopefully we will be given the opportunity to make up for it! Best regards, Pavlos

Informative and Interesting
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our audio tour at the Acropolis. The stories were the perfect length, quite interesting and very informative. Would definitely recommend as we felt we learned a lot and at our own pace.
