Description

Draw the name of the Greek god you will become for the day and let the exploration of ancient Athens commence. Explore the archaeological site of the Acropolis Hill as your licensed guide narrates myths and legendary tales regarding its imposing monuments, including the Theater of Asclepius, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Propylea, the Erectheion, and, of course, the world-renowned Parthenon.

The story-telling will come to life through a series of riddles and puzzles you'll be presented with; follow the clue your guide gives you and watch the Athenian history unfold before your eyes.

Your fun tour continues to the contemporary Acropolis Museum, the host of the most important findings the excavations of the Acropolis brought to light. Let your knowledgeable guide introduce you to the most momentous exhibits, including the authentic Caryatids statues and the intricate metopes of the Parthenon.

In just a few hours you will have gained a better understanding of Greek culture, history and mythology and the significant symbolism that lies under every ancient rock!

Love that this was a small group tour, much more intimate! Our tour guide was Maria who was really great, she was informative and gave such great insights about the mythology! She also tried to stop in the shade wherever possible! I have already recommended the tour to my sister who is coming to Athens later this year!

Both the tour and Eva, our guide, were wonderful. We really enjoyed the tour. Thanks so much. Would very much recommend a guided tour of the acropolis. The added context makes it super interesting.

Maria was a fabulous tour guide. You can tell she is a teacher by the way she makes it fun for the kids. We were there on one of the hottest, most crowded days of the year and we would do it all over again.

We were met on time by Maria. The tour was at a good pace, and we didn't feel rushed at all. She explained things very well and answered all our questions knowledgeably. We were given ample time to take photos, ask questions and have a look around at various points. By visiting as part of the tour I felt we got a better understanding and knowledge of what we were looking at compared to visiting alone. The tour finished on time. Having a small group was also beneficial as it makes the experience more personal and enjoyable, and you feel able to ask more questions than with a larger group too. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Athens and the Acropolis.

What a wonderful morning spent with Eva. She was great. She walked up through the parthenon, acropolis rock, and the acropolis museum. Girl knows her stuff. Upbeat and enthusiastic she was very polite, professional and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed our time and she is an excellent. But this tour is not for the faint of heart. This is literally up to the hill to the highest point on foot. Walkers be warned.

More fun than I thought it would be
I’m not a dancer, and have never been one. When my wife suggested this class, I went along with it to be a good sport. I didn’t expect to enjoy it, but I did.

Greek dancing is so easy, even I can do it. If you can walk in a circle, you can do it! The instructors were excellent, and our host at dinner (I’m sorry I don’t remember her name) was so nice, she made us feel at home.
Great food experience with Elena
Elena was an excellent guide on the food tour. Her knowledge of Greek history and Greek food recipes was outstanding. I tried food that I normally wouldn’t try on holiday and enjoyed everything. This is my first time visiting Greece, I will be back. Regards, Rob Mann
Fantastic!
We got to experiment Athens like a local. We really felt our tour guide did an excellent job of introducing us to amazing Greek food while explaining the origin behind it, one of the best things she said was ,”I wanted this tour to be something I would take my friends or family to if they were visiting”. That’s exactly how we felt! We went to neighborhoods and restaurants we would have never found on our own. We absolutely loved it!
Thank you!

Making Athens Incredibly Awesome!
We did 2 tours with those guys - the 'Breakfast and Acropolis Tour' and the 'Private Night Food Tour with Wine Tasting'. Both Eva and Elena provided fantastic tours that were fun, informative, and at a pace that was comfortable. The Greek breakfast before the Acropolis tour was a nice way to start the day and fill up before walking with Eva around the Plaka and the Acropolis hill. I couldn't imagine doing a tour of the Acropolis without a great guide to tell you the history and mythology of the ancient city. The food and wine tour with Elena was also a wonderful way to learn about Greek culture. Food stops were excellent and provided a good overview of common foods that the Greeks eat - some expected and many unexpected. Both Elena and Eva also sent post-tour emails to us on things to do in Athens and the islands we were going to be visiting on our trip - a nice follow-up touch that speaks to the quality of this company. Highly recommend a tour with them when visiting Athens.
