Our Percy Jackson experience was superb! We had an outstanding tour guide: not only was she so friendly and easy to get along with, she provided a wealth of information that made the sights just “come alive” for us all. She was especially engaging with our kids, aged 16 and 18. We learned more from her than we ever could have on our own. This trip was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a unique, memorable experience.
We had a lovely tour in Delphi with Greeking.me. Not only was our guide incredibly knowledgeable, but she also came prepared for our 9 year old Percy Jackson fan. Evita did a nice job of letting my son "be the expert" and chiming in with new information along the way. She kept the tour moving so that my son would stay engaged, providing us with lots of in depth information. I highly recommend Greeking.me!
