  • Since all the tours we offer are private we have the flexibility to discuss with you any changes you wish to make in the itinerary.
  • During summer time because of the hot climate conditions in Greece we always suggest you to wear light clothes, bring with you a hat and sunscreen and make sure to wear non-slipper comfortable shoes due to the slippery terrain in the archaeological sites.
  • Also we always provide child seats or boosters whenever is needed with no extra cost. In case there are children between the passengers and you need a child seat we can provide it with no extra cost.

We will start our half day excursion in Athens tour by picking you up from your cruise ship at the cruise terminal. We will drive you towards Athens and you will enjoy a scenic drive by the seaside road of Piraeus passing through the neighborhoods of Kastellla and Mikrolimano.

Our first stop will be the Acropolis where you will admire the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erectheion temple, the temple of Athena Nike, Herodus Atticus Odeon, the Areopagus hill and the Theatre of Dionysus.

Next prepare to be amazed by the change of the Presidential guards that takes place at the Parliament in front of the tomb of the unknown soldier.

Continuing our half day excursion in Athens tour our next stop will be Athens Trilogy which includes the University of Athens, the Academy of Athens, and the National Library, right after we will drive you to the highest point of Athens, the Lycabettus hill to admire the best panoramic view of the city.

After taking beautiful panoramic pictures we will continue our tour passing by the National Garden, the former Royal Palace, the Panathenaic stadium where the first Modern Olympic Games took place in 1896.

Next, we will visit Zappeion, the temple of Olympian Zeus and the Arch of Hadrian. Before going back to the port if there is time left you can spend some time for shopping. The tour ends by driving you back to your cruise ship.
