Athens Half Day Private Tour

By Onoufrios Dovletis
Licensed Tourist Guide

Perfect Tour

We have been to Athens, the Acropolis, and the Acropolis Museum several times before, but this time we took a tour with Onoufrios. It was fantastic. He does a wonderful job conveying the historical,
Archaeological, and linguistic importance of everything we saw. We loved It and couldn’t recommend him more. Will definitely be back to hire him for other tours.

Excellent Tour Guide

Four of us booked Onoufrios for a 3 day tour of Athens and surrounding areas. He is extremely knowledgeable and truly a fun person to spend time with. Be sure to book the Corinth Canal day which included super driver, George. He treated us like royalty! Look no further. This is the guide that you want. Check out Onoufrios' website.

Seen the best of Athens!

We hired Onoufrios for a private 1/2 day tour of the Acropolis and surrounding areas. He met us on time, and did an amazing job of keeping us away from the crowds while we toured. He was knowledgeable but more importantly, he was personable and so enthusiastic. Not only did he give us an excellent tour, he also suggested restaurants and other places to visit. Highly recommend!!

Ancient Greece Comes Alive

Onoufrious' expert commentary made our day in Athens as much about the people of ancient Greece as the architecture. He had a special way of conveying visual details to help us understand and retain the historical timelines. We also did his Corinth, Mycenae, Epidaurus and Nafplio Private Tour, which augmented and reinforced what we learned in Athens. Since we had heard numerous times "This is a replica--the original is in Athens", we squeezed the National Archaeological Museum Private Tour in on our last day. He found many interesting artifacts in a rather stody museum. Highly recommended.

Program

Step
01

Acropolis

The Acropolis, Greece’s most famous UNESCO site, has always been the fortress of Athens and the absolute symbol of the grandeur of the Greek civilization. The buildings included are: Parthenon, Erechthion, Odeon of Herodes (Herodion), Temple of Athena Nike, Propylea, Theatre of Dionysus.

Step
02

Monastiraki Square

Built right above the ancient city and a metro station, this is practically the heart of Athens right by the old town, where there are dozens of shops for clothes, shoes and souvenirs (‘flea market’), restaurants and cafés. Definitely the place to be!

Step
03

Hadrian's Library

Once a library for nearly 20,000 'books' this site with impressive Corinthian columns eventually became home to Christian churches and ottoman houses until the 19th century.

Step
04

Tower of the Winds & Roman Market

Considered the world's first meteorological station, this simple-looking building was a marvel of Ancient Greek engineering, now surrounded by remains of various invaders...

Step
05

Plaka, Anafiotika

This is the old town of Athens right by the Acropolis, full of taverns, cafés, and wonderful ancient and neoclassical buildings. Anafiotika is part of it but it stands out for its island look.

Step
06

Acropolis Museum

The most impressive museum in Greece and one of the best ones in the world, the Acropolis Museum houses the classical masterpieces from the Acropolis combining an excavation that is always visible under your feet.
