This tour was mostly positive. The kids enjoyed the use of the iPad tablets and exploring the Acropolis. By the time we reached the museum our kids all 10 were starting to get tired and their attention started to wonder. The guide didn’t seem to be overly flexible given it was tour for kids and by the end seemed to be annoyed they were no longer paying attention. At the conclusion of the tour she collected the headsets and just left. She didn’t offer to provide directions on how to get back to our hotel even though she met us there and walked us to the Acropolis. She literally left us at the museum exit without a word which we found rather abrupt and if our phones did not have GPS and the international plan not turned on would not have been good.

We really enjoyed our tours of the Acropolis, Delphi and Epidaurus with this company. Though the company touts itself on Percy Jackson themed tours, only one of our guides was well-versed in Percy Jackson which was a bit of a disappointment to our child. The tours were nonetheless excellent. The drivers and cars for the distant tours were also excellent. The iPads at the Acropolis were glitchy and not really useful. Would not recommend this company for Cape Sounio/Temple of Poseidon — it was expensive and there was no guide despite the high cost. The stop at the cultural center on the way was unnecessary.

This was the most incredible trip. I know almost nothing of Greek Mythology, and our guides really brought the history to life. The first day we toured the acropolis and the acropolis museum, then we drove down to watch the sunset at Poseidon’s Temple. This is such a beautiful spot, possibly my favorite spot on the trip (though it’s hard to decide). Day 2 we saw the ruins at Delphi, which has breathtaking views and we ate lunch in a little cafe where we could see all the way to the Corinthian Gulf. The third day we saw the ruins of the healing center at Epidarus, where our guide told us fascinating stories of the healing practices of the ancient Greeks. The theater was very impressive as well. Then on to Nafplion for lunch and gelato! Our guides were very accommodating. We needed a PCR test to fly home, and they called multiple clinics to find us the least expensive test, and then drove us there. Everyone was very kind and free with recommendations on places to eat and wander in Athens. Thank you Evita, Marialena, Peter, and Nikos!

My ´5 out of 5´ rating comes straight from the kids - that should tell you plenty right there! Our guide kept them engaged throughout the tour. We all enjoyed it and learned much.

I rarely do tours, even when with my boys (now all teenagers). Went to Athens for my 13yr old's dream holiday trip with the focus on greek mythology, one of his passions. Signed up for 3 day tour (Acropolis/Sunion, Delphi, Epidaurus). I highly recommend and could not think of ever going to Athens, with kid or not, and not see the Athenian sites without Greek Mythology Tours. Angeliki was our main guide with Irene for one afternoon. Both younger (early 30s?), professionals (post grad student and school teacher), highly highly knowledgable about classic greek mythology, able to reference the Percy books to help kids who read them understand reference points. Able to intelligently converse about current social and cultural ways as well as current political and social events concerning Greece. Drivers (Jim, Tom) we had were both great. Large, clean, safe cars (mercedes no less) and excellent, smooth drivers, especially as we had to travel windy roads. Both guides were able to keep my son off his phone during the car rides and actively engaged in dialouge the entire ride. Anyone who has a 13year old knows that never happens. Angeliki studied archaeology and to walk the sites and Acropolis Museum and see in her eyes how she still finds wonder and delight is true love for what she does. Even if you have only have the half day to do Acropolis & the Museum, dont do it with anyone else but these folks.
