Overview

Come for a ride with our eco-friendly 100% electric minivans and explore the most famous spots and monuments of the city, with this skip-the-line private tour. We start our tour by visiting Lycabettus Hill for an almost 360-degree view of the city and a chance to take some great images if you walk up the stretch to the top. You’ll be impressed by the open views of Athens and will able to see all the way down to the port of Piraeus. Next is a trip to Constitution square and the Greek parliament with the Royal Gardens from when Greece was a kingdom. Along the way we get to admire Roman temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch, as well as the nearby marble stadium that had hosted the very first modern Olympic Games back in 1896. The neoclassical buildings in Downtown Athens hosting the academy of fine arts and the University of Athens are also a must. The tour will of course bring us to the famous Acropolis of Athens, where our skip-the-line tickets will grant you immediate access to the sacred hill, where the Temple of the Athena Nike, Propylaea, Erechtheion, and above all the Parthenon await. Our next stop will take you to the new Acropolis museum, an architectural gem in itself, to admire masterpieces of ancient Greek art. The day ends wherever you want it to, at your cruise ship, hotel or in the quaint yet bustling Plaka district, the oldest part of the city. Numerous photo opportunities along the way. The tour is friendly to people with special needs.
