We used Context Athens Tours for a tour of the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. Our guide, Anastasia, was prompt, knowledgeable and very helpful. We have used Context in numerous cities throughout Europe, and they don’t ever fall short.

We are a party of five who have used Context may times. The private tour of the Acropolis and the Museum was fantastic, easily among the very best. Our guide, Panos, was just outstanding. Very knowledgeable and personable. We really enjoyed our time with him.

Our tour was a few hours in the afternoon, so you could easily fit it in. It seems like it was around $80-90.
