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!

Kelli was a great guide and really knew her stuff. This is an excellent way to get an overview of Athens on your first day there.

Tour guide Alexandra was amazing. She shared many mythological stories about the sites we were seeing along with real history. We took lots of breaks walking up to the Acropolis so the hike wasn't bad at all. Would highly recommend visiting the Acropolis museum afterwards to tie all the information together.

We really enjoyed this 4 hour tour that included the Acropolis, Hadrian's Gate, and the Athens cemetery. Ifi, our guide, was knowledgeable and answered all our questions. She knew the best places for photos, and skillfully maneuvered our small group around the throngs of tourists on the Acropolis.

Excellent tour, our guide his name eludes me, it was Greek and long was excellent. He was an archeologist and gave excellent recounting of the Greek and Roman myths associated with the sights we saw. Very recommended. A fair bit of walking for those who may have trouble, so be aware.

This is a must do! This was my favorite tour of my trip which included a lot of tours in Greece and Italy. Definitely wear your walking shoes as this tour is not for the immobile. There is a LOT of walking. My favorite thing about this tour was that at every sight, we learned both the history and myths surrounding the locations. Stops include the temple of Zeus, the acropolis/ Parthenon and some theaters and structures on the way, the ancient Athenian agora, temple of Hephaestus, and an ancient cemetery. Afterwards we were exhausted from all the walking, but this tour was perfect. At each stop, we got some info from our guide and then the perfect amount of time to walk around and take pictures.
Be aware, however, that entrance fees are not included. They add up to around 21 euros with each place being 3-7. Or you can buy the 30 euro combo ticket which also includes 3 locations not included in this tour that you can visit on your own while in Athens.
Overall, this tour was amazing and I high recommend. I would do it again!

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable of Greek mythology and history while exploring all the major landmarks of ancient Athens in 4 hours as described. On occasion we felt overwhelmed by the volume of information she was providing but certainly got what we paid for. Walking rarely presented a problem as there was so much to take in, the pace was more of a stroll. We feel we took in the best of Athens and would recommend this tour to others.

We enjoyed the small group to view Athens from a mythological perceptive (with splash of modern). Our guide, Costas, was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. Our 10 year old also enjoyed himself. Slight confusion as meeting place is actually posted Olympic Archeological Entrance not Temple of Zeus.
