Awesome experience, highly recommended!
, Dec 2019
If you like Greek history and Greek mythology, which go hand in hand, you will love this tour. Not only do you visit all the main sites and take in the breathtakingly views, it is very informative. It is not rushed so there is ample time to take photos, ask questions and there is a couple of opportunities to take a quick break. You will have to buy a combination ticket for €30 at the temple of Zeus which allows entry into the sites on the tour. However the ticket also allows you entry into sites which are not on the tour and is valid for 2 days. The tour guide was fantastic and enthusiastic and also offered to take photos for everyone so they can all be in the pic.
Acropolis tour

Our tour guide (Erika) was incredible! We learned so much history and would recommend the tour to anyone!
Great Mythology incorporation

Our guide was Dora, and she was great. We went the end of october and our english group was thankfully small with 8, therefore we were able to hear what our guide was saying the whole time.We started at the Temple of Zeus and made our way to the Acropolis which was amazing! I love the stories and mythology that Dora incorporated into the history of the ancient ruins. We did not feel rushed and had enough free time at each of the stops. The weather was great for walking and we would recommend this tour!
Great day out with a lovely guide

Really enjoyed listening to all the myths and stories during our walking tour. Our guide was lovely and knowledgeable. Definitely made visiting the sites more enjoyable.
Great tour to get the mythological side of the ancient sites

In traveling with my two teens I wanted to do a tour they would enjoy too. The whole family enjoyed! I forgot the name of our guide but she was from the Netherlands and did an excellent job.
Perfect Day

We spent 14 days in Greece and my ten yr old daughter rates the tour we had with Alex the best day. I agree with her. He is a fountain of knowledge on all things Athens of course but he delivered with such clarity and humour. It’s like having a lesson in the field from a genuinely engaging teacher. The way Alex combines pillars of classical Greece and our walk is truly enjoyable. The balance he held between mythology, history and architecture is definitely beyond your everyday tour. I hope you can find the same guide!

Did not include very much mythology. Also, I did the Athens free walking tour the previous day and this one honestly paled in comparison.
Great tour

Nice tour!

This was an excellent tour to see many different archaeological sites of Athens. The 30 euro combo ticket was not included, but you are able to go to 7 different sites over a 5 day period. You see the Temple of Zeus, Acropolis, and Greek Agora on this tour and my husband and I were able to see other sites on our own as well. Demetra was our tour guide and she did a great job telling stories about the Greek myths, which were super interesting and fun to hear. Would definitely recommend this tour!
Great Experience!

My husband and I were on a Mediterranean Cruise for our honeymoon and were only in Athens for a day, so we booked this tour to maximize our time in Athens. We are big fans of mythology and this tour combined history and mythology perfectly. We were able to explore various historic landmarks and hear both history and mythology surrounding these monuments. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, kind, and fun so we enjoyed spending 4+ hours with her throughout this tour, despite being in a hot and humid climate.
