I would definitely recommend this tour. Cat was a great tour guide, engaged everyone in group. It is good to remember that you have to pay an extra 30€ for the sites

I'd like to start off by saying that we had went to about half of these sites the day prior at our leisure and with no guide. The difference between winging it and having an amazing guide like Kelly was substantial! I've always been intrigued by Greek mythology, and Kelly was fluent in all things Greek and mythology. Answered all of the guests questions and gave a detailed story at each site, linking modern day Athens and it's history in an interesting and intriguing way.Bring your most comfy pair of walking shoes, a bottle of water or two and be prepared to be impressed.Note that you will be required to buy an additional admission ticket for 30 euros for all of the sites you will visit (but well worth it). If you only have a day or two in Athens, this is worth your time.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide Johanna was awesome:and knowledgeable and very friendly. Note that there is a €30 entrance fee for each person in addition to the tour. This tour has a lot of walking, and climbing crumbling rock steps.There is a lot of marble underfoot and it get very slippery. Wear light clothing and very comfortable shoes. We went in early Sept and it was 96 degrees. I brought an umbrella and lots of water. It wa a pretty intense but totally worth it!

My sisters and I recently returned from Athens Greece and this is the tour we took while there. We were grateful to have Alena as our tour guide. She was energetic, bubbly and was well educated in the history and mythology of Athens. Alena made everything come alive as she walked us around the city! She was sensitive to everyone's physical abilities and gave us rests as well as bringing everyone some lovely sesame and honey treats! This tour was a great meld of mythology and history, don't miss this one you won't be disappointed!

It was quite an interesting tour. Guide was knowledgeable, she told us a lot about Greek mythology, if you have not learned it in the school. Always waited for us making sure that no one get lost. It was very hot in August so don't forget to bring water and hats! After Acropolis we made a 20-30 minutes stop at a small restaurant for refreshments. That was very necessary to get a break from the and sun heat. The overall it was a very good tour.

Many people say Athens is just a lay over city to get to the islands. Don't listen to them. Athens is amazing and this specific tour of the Acropolis was amazing. I loved our tour guide, she was so full of life and was one of the best guides I've ever had.

This tour offered both a mythological aspect and non mythological aspect. This is the tour you want to take.........

We had the greatest guide- Costas. He was very knowledgeable about the history and mythology and relayed the information very well. You could tell he truly enjoys his job and sharing his knowledge. The sites were amazing. The 4 hours is a lot though. Bring water and wear proper shoes. I’m super fit and by the end my legs were done and I was exhausted. I absolutely recommend hitting up this tour and using this company.

My family of four (with 17 yr old and 13 yr old) took the Athens Highlights: a Mythological tour in late June 2018. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it! Our tour guide, Alexandra, was wonderful. We had a small group that easily stayed together while walking throughout Athens to all of the major landmarks. At each site, Alexandra shared both the history and the myth behind it, which was fascinating for everyone in our family. The tour was well organized, on time, the guide was great, and Viator was reliable. Our first day in Athens, our family wandered around the various districts (Plaka, Monastariki, major landmarks, etc) getting the lay of the land, etc. I was so glad that on the second day, we had scheduled the tour, because it made seeing everything WAY more interesting to know the history, stories, culture, etc. Highly recommend!!
