    Note: After the first part of the tour, between the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum Tour, there's an approximate 15-20 min break during which you may get a snack or a drink but there is no time for leasury meal. Kindly note that on the afternoon slots we first visit the Museum and then the Acropolis to avoid the heat and the crowds on the Acropolis.
