Value for money. Got to see Acropolis and museum and the changing of the guards. Then the beautiful drive to the Temple of Poseidon. Beautiful country. Thank you.

Skip Acropolis and do the Cape

My recommendation: skip the Acropolis portion of the tour and just buy the Remple and Cape package! We found the Acropolis portion to be a complete waste of money - our tour guide was so quiet that no one in the group could hear her. She seemed very rude and like she disliked her job. We had to walk away from the group to get to the Acropolis after the museum because we were running out of time before the second half of the tour. By the time we were leaving to get back to the bus the group had barely just gotten there! Just do the Acropolis on your own in the morning, you get nothing for your money for this tour. However the second half was fabulous - well worth the trip to the Cape to see the Temple. Thank goodness we had a different tour guide named Michelle - she was stellar and the best guide we had during all tours we took in Greece! You should be able to just buy this half of the tour separately - believe me, do it!!
