Athens inspires with its fusion of classical and modern treasures, arts scene, and history of intellectual excellence from philosophers like Plato and Socrates. Explore the splendour of the Greek capital, visit the Acropolis—a World Heritage Landmark, and learn about this ancient city.

Hop on board a luxury coach and drive around Syntagma Square, the heart of the city. Your guide explains how the old and new are connected and built upon each other as you pass numerous major landmarks.

Visit the National Garden to see ancient ruins set amidst luscious greenery. Continue to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where you can observe the motionless uniformed guards, and then pass by the neo-classical buildings of the National Library.

As you roam through this diverse city, discover interesting facts about the iconic Parliament buildings, and hear stories of the Royal Palace. Also, be amazed by the white marble Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first Olympic Games. Climb the stairs to the top row of seats and take in the panoramic views—a great chance to take some memorable photos.

Visit the remaining columns of the Temple of Zeus, dedicated to the most powerful of the Greek gods, before venturing to the mighty Acropolis. Ascending the sacred hill, breathtaking views of the city below unfold before you. When you reach the top, weave in and out of temples built in long ago, such as the Propylae and the famous Parthenon, and follow the footsteps of the greatest minds of the 5th century.

This is not a great tour. The staff are friendly and nice but the tour is not value for money. You have 10 minutes view of the stadium from the outside only. Then see the sites through a coach window. It does not even get you to jump the line at the Acropolis. You should just go to Acropolis in your own. The guide tells you facts but with all the people it’s not easy to hear. Not value for money.

It's very rush and didn't stop over at the National Garden and the Temple of the Zen as described on the program at the Expedia site. The tour guide spoke too soft and most of the time we could not hear her speak.

When I put in city tour of Athens, Ga and it pulled up city tour of Athens, somehow ended up city tour of Athens, Greece. Be sure to double check the web sight. I had 4 adults view this and it wasn't what I thought I was getting. The amount wasn't even the same that was listed. I also had booked a rental car for Georgia. I can't even imagine how this happened. Be careful.
