Fun way to see the historical sites of Athens
Suzanne_V
, Jun 2021
Not knowing much about Greek Mythology, I figured this would be a fun way to see the sights in Athens. I was right! Our tour guide was fabulous. She was informative and entertaining. We got to see all the major sites and I certainly had a much better understanding of the Greek Gods and why they played such an important part history, by the time we finished. LOTS of walking, but our guide was good at breaking it up in to small sections. I don't usually wear a hat, but brought one with me because lots of reviews said it was a good idea. Didn't need it in the am, but was very happy to have that wide brim by mid-day at the top of the Acropolis.

Amazing experience

This was an amazing experience! Our guide is so knowledgeable on myths and architecture and the mythological relevance and meaning of the architecture. My husband is an architect and she nailed all of the terminology. We didn't know how the myths had such an influence and our guide kept us engaged the entire time. She was thoughtful of letting our group have good amounts of time for photo ops and rest time to get drinks, use restroom and rest to enjoy the views. We saw other tours going on but her microphone to our audio guide earpieces allowed the 11 of us to keep a distance from the others but to hear absolutely everything she was saying. I think other tour groups were jealous, lol. There's so much to see, we couldn't have imagined not taking a tour. And, we couldn't have imagined not taking THIS tour!

Tour included most everything we wanted to see in Athens. Group was small and the guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and her English was understandable! I am glad this itinerary didn’t include the acropolis museum because we could go on our own later and spend as much or as little time as we wanted. I would highly recommend this tour!

Fun experience! Good guide, the right length. Gave a different perspective on the sites. Would have liked a historical/mythological combo tour more though!

A Whirlwind Tour of Classical Greek History
James

An excellent way to see another layer of Athens and the ancient history that is present everywhere you look. The interplay between the ancient Greek's religious beliefs, myths, and their relationship with themselves and the physical world came out in the stories. It is a wonder how the Gods' escapades came to be and how anything positive came out from their foul deeds. I felt myself revisiting the Greek tragedies of high school, the original purpose and actions surrounding the buildings, and then considering their influence on the modern world.

Kostas was friendly, knowledgable and an excellent tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Only dropped a star because the top of the Acropolis was closed on the day of the tour and we had to return the next day...

great tour! we got lucky and my husband and I were the only two people to sign up for the tour, so we ended up getting a private tour! you get a great mix of mythology and history that helps bring the ancient city of Athens alive. wear good walking shoes, you'll do a lot! but plenty of breaks along the way, so nothing too strenuous. highly recommend this tour!
