Become a Greek god for a day and embark on an unforgettable journey to ancient Athens to unravel the captivating myths that shaped the history of this ancient city and find your way back to your rightful place on Mount Olympus!
Let fate pick the Greek god you will become for the day and set on a mythical adventure to discover the divine formula that will help you find your way back to the famed mountain of the gods, Olympus. Following a number of fun and engaging clues, you will wander through the compelling archaeological site of the Acropolis Hill and discover the myths surrounding its monuments in an effort to return to your rightful position of power!
With you skip-the-line entrance fees included in the price of the tour, all you have to do is follow your friendly guide up the sacred Acropolis rock, to marvel at the Theater of Dionysus, the world's first theater, and pass by the Asklepieion, the healing temple home of Asclepius who was punished by Zeus for his supernatural remedies. Your path to Acropolis will become even more fascinating as you try to find the answer to all the puzzles your guide presents to you; solve the riddles, unveil the myths that are hidden under every rock of your trail, and you will be led to success! The imposing marble gate of the hill, Propylaea, and the captivating stories of Athena Nike, the patron of Athens, are only some of the sites that will leave you enchanted. Of course, no Acropolis tour would be complete without the architectural miracle of the Parthenon, the monument that encapsulates the principals and values of western civilization and the Erechtheion, the cult temple of Athena, where according to legend, the battle between Athena and Poseidon took place.
The fun mythical adventure doesn't end on the Acropolis rock; next up in your mythological itinerary is the modern Acropolis Museum, home to some of the most impressive artifacts of the ancient Greek world. Your guide will show you statues, artifacts and every-day items connected to some of the most intriguing stories of ancient Greek life. Marvel at the beauty of the Caryatids, the beautiful maidens that supported the porch of the Erechtheion temple, and admire the wonderful metopes of the Parthenon, each one featuring a different mythological tale. By the end of your visit to the Acropolis Museum, you will have put together the blueprint that will lead you back to your divine home at the peak of the highest mountain in Greece. Long live the Greek gods!

We did the Athens mythology tour as a private tour and we all had a great time. Our kids are 10 and 13 and they enjoyed the whole thing. We did rent the VR glasses so the kids could see the Acropolis as it had been and they thought it was very cool. This was a highlight of our entire trip.
We toured with Vera today. She was fabulous, clearly enjoys the job 4 years on for her. Started with going into the Acropolis, just amazing, great stories about the gods etc. Then moved on to the Agora market, really interesting facts and stories... well worth doing. Info about the city and side streets added in. very cool.
We were delighted with our mythology tour of the Acropolis and with our guide, Evita. We have two boys age 11 and 14 and we wanted a guide that would engage them -- and us adults too. And we got it. Evita was fun, interesting, and informative. They boys (and my wife) rated her a 10 out of 10. Overall our trip to the Acropolis created memories that will last for ever.
We appreciate the opportunity to give feedback on our outstanding experience at the Acropolis. Eva was extremely kind and knowledgeable. The children (ages 8 and 10) loved the tour (3.5 hours) and found it very interesting. We were intrigued and are grateful.
My family, 2 40-something adults, kids 10 and 12, had a great time on this tour. The tour guide, Nikos, was really knowledgeable. I really appreciated how he explained not only the mythology behind the structures we saw, but also the political motivations of the people who built them. Great Athens tour!
We did the Mythology tour of the Acropolis and ancient Agora with our 3 kids aged 7-10. Our tour guide was full of knowledge and definitely enriched our visit. It was a really hot August day but our guide led us to shady spots where he explained what we were seeing and used pictures to show what it would have looked like then. An amazing experience!
We really enjoyed the Athens mythology tour. Ava was fun and well versed in archaeology, my family liked how thorough she was and how she told the stories and pointed mostly what's important. She is able to engage the 3 kids in the tour who were very smart kids familiar with Greek Mythology.
This Athens mythology tour is an absolute must for all adult travellers serious about learning about Ancient Greece. Not only was our guide, Vera, highly qualified and knowledgeable (masters degree in archaeology ), she spoke English very well . The 4 hour tour went very quickly.
Love that this was a small group tour, much more intimate! Our Athens Mythology 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!
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. It was an amazing Athens mythology tour.
