Evita was a wonderful guide for our family with two daughters ages 8 and 10 who are really into mythology and Percy Jackson. Evita did a nice job involving the girls in the telling of the tales and encouraging them to notice special features of the statues and architecture. We all enjoyed the seemingly magical 3D renderings of the ruins at the Acropolis.
Our tour was an early morning Athens mythology tour. Evita knew more about Percy Jackson than even my well read 10-yr-old. With temperatures nearing 105F, she guided us to the shady spots to talk before each important site and where to refill water and buy frozen lemonade to cool off. We had an enjoyable morning with Evita and saw the top sites at the Acropolis and Agora.
We had a lovely tour of the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum with Evita. Not only was Evita 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!
We had not expected such an interesting and thorough visit to sites mentioned in the Percy Jackson books. Marilena is an archaeologist and expert in mythology. Her knowledge, method of engaging kids and adults was that of a master. We recommend renting the iPad for the virtual reality experience of seeing the temples, as they used to be.The quality of this tour made the price a valued experience!
We could not recommend this tour enough. It was fantastic. The 3D tablet view of the monuments really added an extra dimension to the experience. Our guide was an Archaeologist. So smart and knowledgeable! Our children loved the tour.
Vera was our tour guide for the Percy Jackson with 3D ipad tour of the Acropolis site and the Acropolis museum. She was a wonderful person and a very knowledgeable archaeologist! She was able to engage us, especially our two children (ages 8 and 12) in the discussions about Greek mythology and took into consideration our interests. The staff at Greeking.me, specially Christina, were very patient with me changing plans, they were very easy to work with.
My 8 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed our Percy Jackson tour of the acropolis and afternoon tour to Sounion to see the Temple of Poseidon. Our tour guide, Mary-Helena was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the history, archaeology, Greek mythology and of course Percy Jackson. She was very kind and patient with my son. The tour was well organized at every step. Highly recommend!
We booked a private family tour in July for our family of four. Our 10-year-old son is a huge Percy Jackson fan who has read all the books in the series. Our guide Evita was amazing. She was in contact with our children prior to us leaving the states asking them questions about their favorite characters and stories. During the tour, Evita provided us with a good mix of mythology, Percy Jackson and use of the 3D ipads. We had a great day with a great guide.
This tour was fantastic! I took my 13 1/2 year old grandson, who is an ardent fan of all the Rick Riordan books, and he loved this tour. All the tour leaders are archeologists, with full knowledge of all the Percy Jackson books, incorporating them all into the tour. They fully engaged my grandson in the dialogue, making it very personal. Greeking.me took care of all arrangements for us, including hotels, drivers, transfers with explicit directions for all venues. I cannot say enough good things about their organization and attention to detail. Christina with greeking.me also assisted with the rest of our trip in Rome, which was also wonderful.
We were a family of 4 - 2 adults 2 children cost 280Euros (2 ipads included for 3d viewing); tickets separate cost. This was a good tour. We met Eva at the meeting point with 2 other families for a total of 12 tourists. Eva spent a lot of time explaining the details of the Acropolis, Parthenon both in terms of history and in terms of the Percy Jackson books. She led the kids in questions and games and it was a great experience. Eva knew the best places for shade and pictures. This was a 1/2 day semi private tour and we felt we got a good tour learning a lot about Greek history along with Greek Gods. We recommend this tour for Percy Jackson fans.
