We were approached by taxi drivers wanting up to $200 to drive us to Acropolis and wait for us, we declined even when price dropped to $120. We got local bus right near port to acropolis $3. As we had not pre booked tickets for entry there was a really long que. We were approached by local tour guide who can buy your tickets and do her tour for extra $20 on top of the price of entry. We chose to do this option as it got us in quicker. It was 40deg and so busy. We then walked around Plaka historic neighbourhood. Read Less

Awful courier and disgusting lunch. Wish we had not done this trip. A bit of a waste of money for a hugely over priced excursion.

My husbands favorite tour. He wants to live here . The age of the temple is mind blowing. The poet Byron left his mark on one of the columns.

We booked a day tour with Private Greek Tours - Nikos and his team were very professional. We had a great driver and a clean, new touring van. We also hired a tour guide from The Travel Insiders to provide us with insight at the Acropolis and other Greek sites. This was a wonderful day filled with a lot of information. Our guide worked well with the driver to get us close to the back entrance to the Acropolis. He also picked us up there to shorten our walk down. There is a lot of walking there. We also went to see the changing of the guards and walked through Plaka. It was an amazing tour we will not soon forget. Read Less

Greek people are so wonderful. They were so welcoming and seemed happy to have tourists. There were so many people there ready to help, happy and proud to share their city. Our ship left from there so we stayed a couple days. We stayed in Koukaki, a safe area in walking distance of The Acropolis and Plaka. Don't miss Anatiofika! It's in between The Acropolis and Plaka - small little neighborhood, like a postcard, quaint, and so beautiful. Find the little church in Anatiofika with the Greek flag and you'll see the most amazing view of Athens from there! The taxis in Athens can be sketchy. We took a transfer from the airport which worked great and was the same price as a taxi. Even though we had a delayed/diverted/cancelled flight, Athens Airport Taxi/run by Emma followed our changes, always responded to each communication immediately and took care of us. We were also happy that Athen's has Uber. But be weary of using a Taxi. They'll take advantage of you. We actually saw a fight break out with a Taxi driver! Be careful in that that each area in Athens is different and can go from safe to unsafe within a block. In general, the closer to The Acropolis, the safer it is. We loved Athens - even though our luggage hadn't arrived (and wouldn't for five days). It's the locals there that make it so wonderful! Read Less

There are no sites near the dock. We made private arrangements for a tour of Athens. It worked out great.

Spent more time on the bus than anything else. The Acropolis is fantastic. Didn't really care for the shopping area as it was mainly tourist traps and restaurants. Did enjoy an amazing Greek salad.

This was an overnight visit. We have been to Athens several times and have done the Acropolis so we got the HOHO bus (Grayline - two days for the price of one deal) to the excellent Archeological Museum. There are 3 HOHO bus options and the stops are close to the cruise terminals. Had two enjoyable days walking the streets, eating Greek food, shopping and exploring under and around the Acropolis.

I am sorry, but I hated Athens. It is crowded, dirty and awful. We went to The Acropolis and it was like downtown NYC. It was so crowded trying to walk up to the Parthenon that I got claustrophobic. I got separated from my husband and we didn’t find each other for over an hour. Rick Steves recommends getting there before 9 or after 4-5. That may help. We took the Hop-On bus and it was a constant traffic jam. Sorry, this wasn’t my thing. Read Less

We used the Hop-on-Hop-off to get to the Acropolis and then to get back to the ship. We used the Rick Steve's app to tour the Acropolis and Ancient Agora. The we use FreeTour to do a walking food tour in the Plaka. All good fun.
