Easily the highlight of our Athens adventure. Nadia was amazing! She really knew her geography, history and mythology, weaving all three together to give us an understanding of what Athens was about and what the Acropolis has meant to Athens. A healthy walk, we visited key sites as she explained their significance and how each played a part in history. My wife and I left the tour very happy to have met Nadia and appreciative of her passion for sharing. We absolutely recommend this tour!

Alexandra, our guide, was an absolute pleasure to tour the city with! We moved at an easy pace and she never caused us to feel rushed when we wanted to stop to take pictures. She shared great stories about the history of the city and the related myths, which helped us to feel more connected to the sites we were seeing. Her spoken english was great and the small size of our tour group made it feel very intimate and relaxed. I will probably never tour another historic hotspot without booking some type of educational tour, because it really enriched the experience for my family.

Very good tour, huge amounts of information, even though the tour was a long tour, approx. 4 hours, it could have been even longer given the amounts of places to visit.

We had Alexandra as our tour guide and she was absolutely fantastic! She made the myths and legends so interesting and was very informative. She kept it entertaining, historical and relevant to all the places we visited. The day we went it was pouring rain, but she kept us all in high spirits and we didn't even care about the weather! We met a the Temple of Zeus and we got the basics of the Greek Gods and mythology/history surrounding the temple. We walked up towards the Acropolis getting history of Athens, the streets, people and lifestyle of ancient Athenians. When we go to the Acropolis we went to every site and got to ask questions and take as many pictures as we wanted. We were never rushed and got to take in the whole area, which is breathtaking. We walked down to Ancient Agora where all Ancient Athenians enjoyed everyday life. Then stopping over for coffee in a lovely quaint local place. After Agora, we went to an ancient cemetery and learned about the difference between life and death to ancient Greeks and mythology around it. This tour was the best part of our trip! If we go back to Athens with friends, we are booking it again and hopefully get Alexandra as our guide because she was just fantastic!

Warning: If you did not read the bit about needing to purchase the entrance tickets to the various sites separate from the tour, you should be aware of that before you go. I did see that and was prepared, but the other person that was supposed to be on my tour did not read that bit and fell ill at the beginning and decided not to join. The entrance fees for everything together was 30 Euro.

Our tour was amazing. For a Greek Mythology fan like me and my husband, it was great being able to see the ancient sites and learn not only about the history, but also about the mythological reasons for their creation. It was a great way to see the really important things you MUST see while in Athens in a short amount of time.

I had a private tour with Dionysus and I cannot praise him enough. I learned so much, laughed quite a bit, and had a truly memorable time. The mythological aspects woven into the tour of 4 historical sites was more interesting to me than a simply historical tour. There is a short stop at a café stop halfway through for a much needed break the sun is very hot and there is quite a bit of walking and then were back on our way. I would give the tour more than 5 stars if I could.
