Alex was amazing!! I have taken many tours on all my travels. this is by far the most educational and interesting tour I have ever taken. He took his time and explained every detail and answer any questions that we may have had. I could not have had a better tour or a better guide I would highly recommend him for anybody anytime
Great combination of mythology and archeology

Sofia was a great guide! Extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Great with our 11 year old son and engaging him as well. Definitely glad we took this trip.
Wonderful tour!

The tour was very insightful about both the history of Athens and it’s monuments, and importantly the myths that accompany that. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging, so we thoroughly enjoyed our tour - even in the chilly February weather!
Temple of Zeus/Acropolis/Agora

My tour was at 8:30AM and Alex our tour guide was already waiting for us. He was very nice and knowledgeable. He spoke perfect English and even gave us some background on overall Greece. He answered every question and took many pictures of us. The tour lasted about 4 hour and was around $50-$60 US per person. You can do all the sight seeing by yourself but if this is your first time to Greece I highly recommend taking a tour first. Nothing beats someone explaining culture and history while seeing it with your own eyes rather than seeing it and guessing how each monument came to be. One last thing. Be prepared to walk a lot on uneven pavement/uphill/downhill. Wear comfortable shoes or you’ll be in pain later.
Awesome experience, highly recommended!

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
, Oct 2019
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
, Oct 2019
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
, Oct 2019
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
, Oct 2019
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!
