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!!
We had a great tour. She was very fun and included our boys very well. They felt engaged and enjoyed answering questions.
My husband and I really enjoy mythology, so this was the perfect tour for us. Our tour guide wove together the pre-historical myths with the actual history so seamlessly. This tour is a must for anyone who wants to visit the ancient monuments in Athens. I highly recommend it!
This was supposed to be a 4-hour walk but our guide took the time to let us rest and didn't go really fast on a lot of places, so we were able to soak in the culture and the history. Our guide was so enthusiastic and we learned so much from her. Although it was a very hot day, I was very appreciative of her time and knowledge. I do apologize for forgetting our guide's name, she was with a trainee guide during our tour, it's a good idea that the trainees should learn from her. She's the best!!
If you are only going to take one tour in Athens, this certainly is the one. Meshing the historical with the mythological was genius. Our guide, Deenah, was very knowledgeable and passionate about her subject. She was very helpful getting us where we needed to be because of time constraints as well, by talking and sorting out with taxi drivers.
Wonderful tour. The mythology angle was a great choice, our guide artfully blended history, architecture and many Greek myths making them come to life.

Joanna was excellent. Our son is studying his 3rd year of Latin and has a passion for mythology. This tour was absolutely wonderful. Joanna mixed mythology and history in a fun and engaging way. We had a pleasant coffee break in the middle and Joanna shared directions to her favorite restaurants .... we are so glad we did this tour!
