  • We had an excellent time on our tour. The tour guide was excellent. We have four young children (ages 1-8), and we were not sure how they would do for the four hours. But Marialena told stories that were really engaging to our kids. She was able to answer all of our historical questions as well.

  • We booked a mythology tour on rather short notice. We had a fantastic day with Xenia. She was so friendly, knowledgeable and engaging. As we had already visited the ancient Agora on our own, she suggested we visit the Kerameikos instead. It was a wonderful quiet place full of history.We also enjoyed the drive to Sounion, with the stop at beautiful Lake Vouliagmeni - an ideal break.

  • Our family had an amazing private mythology tour with Marialena. She was fantastic - very knowledgeable, engaging and passionate tour guide. I highly recommend this company and Marialena as the tour guide.

  • Nikos organized the best Greek Mythology Tour for us and our grandson. He assigned the perfect tour guide for us and Marialena was fantastic. My grandson had learned about the Greek gods from reading Percy Jackson books and was thrilled with her. We, definitely, would recommend this company to anyone wanting to do private tours.

  • Our family of four did the 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. They have read every Rick Riordan book written plus a few other mythology themed books and our guide, Marialena, was great about engaging them, talking with them to find out what they already knew and then either expanding the stories or teaching them new things about what we were seeing. We did rent an iPad so the kids could see the Acropolis as it had been and they thought it was very cool. They were still going strong after 3.5 hours and were sorry to see the tour come to an end and for our daughter especially it 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 amaxing, 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.
