Don’t leave it all to imagination!

What you can expect?

Every tale needs a storyteller. Your local, expert guide will be your personal storyteller as you discover the world of ancient Athens! Every plinth and archway is a remnant of a time that still speaks to us now; epic battles and miracle happenings that displayed the wrath or favour of the Olympian Gods. Your erudite and charismatic guide will open up a world of gripping tales and give you a greater understanding of the context in which they came to be.

During our 4-hour Mythology Tour of Acropolis & the Ancient Agora of Athens, you will wander through the ruins of ancient halls and roads where some of the greatest characters in human history once walked.

From the epicentre of ancient Athenian daily life - the Ancient Agora- to the rocky heights of Areopagus where the criminal court of Athens once had Gods on the witness stand, this tour will take you on a journey like no other. Admire the sweeping scale of the Panathenaic way and discover the stories that pervade the foundations of the Parthenon. Perfect for all ages, whether you are a history buff or are yet to discover the marvels of antiquity, our licensed guide will show you a world that is waiting to be discovered!  

Optional Upgrade

Enrich your experience with our VR technology and see, with your own eyes, the craftsmanship and vision that inspired a civilization. Hear the very voices of great men such as Pericles & Solon, as you marvel at statues that once stood before you. With the help of VR technology, you will feel as if you could reach out and touch the walls around you!

  • 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.

  • We 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. 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 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.

  • We were delighted with our 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.

  • 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 booked through greeking.me for our family's trip in Greece. I am usually the do-it yourself vacationer but I was not sure I could tackle the language and logistics of Athens and its outside locations. Our guide, Evita, was very knowlegeable and nice. Great stories that gave us the background on the ancient sites. Recommend you to hire a guide, it will add so much more to your visit. Excellent experience!
