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!

We did a private 7-day Percy Jackson themed trip with Greek Mythology Tours. It was very good, although quite a busy itinerary. If I had more days I would have followed their itinerary but included some rest days in each town. We had three different guides, one in each town that we based out of. They were all archaeologists and very knowledgeable. The two stand - out guides were Marialena in Athens and Katerina in Crete. They really engaged our 11 year old son and kept his attention and kept him involved. One thing I would suggest is making sure to have juice and a small lunch for your kids to eat between the archaeological site they will visit and the museum that they visit afterwards. It seems like no one ate lunch in Greece until around 2 pm, but in order to have good energy for walking around the sites and museums I needed to pack a snack for the shuttle ride as well as the short break between the site and the museum. Maria was the organizer and I was extremely impressed by the punctuality of the drivers and guides. Everything went very smoothly.

Dear Megan S4, Thank you for the wonderful review. We are thrilled your son was kept engaged by our wonderful guides! In addition, thank you so much for your recommendation about the food/ snacks between the tours. It is true that Greeks have lunch later in the day. I will discuss your feedback with the rest of the team as we are continuously trying to improve our guest experience. It has been an absolute pleasure to plan your trip to Greece for your family! Please do visit us again soon! Warm Regards Maria on behalf of the Kids Love Greece

We had a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids, ages 4-10) and did the Percy Jackson scavenger hunt in Athens. This was one of our favorite activities on our trip. The guide was engaging and fun, and the scavenger hunt clues were appropriately challenging for the older kids in our group. I would highly recommend this tour/scavenger hunt for families with kids in this age range. It gives you the opportunity to cover a good amount of ground and see some sites we would have otherwise missed (namely the Pnyx) while keeping kids entertained with the mysteries and Percy Jackson tie-ins.

Dear AnokhP, Thank you for your wonderful review! We are so pleased to hear that the Percy Jackson Scavenger Hunt was a highlight of your trip to Athens. It sounds like your group had a fantastic time exploring the city and unraveling the mysteries together! We strive to make our tours both educational and entertaining, especially for families, so it's great to know that the clues were a hit with the older kids and that you enjoyed some of the lesser-known sites like the Pnyx. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to welcome you and your family back for another adventure soon! Best wishes,

This was a 7 day trip with our grandson. He chose Greece based on reading the Percy Jackson series. From setting up the itinerary to suggesting hotels, Greek Mythology tours were great. We visited Athens, Delphi, Epidaurus, Olympia, Nafplion and Crete. We had drivers to take us between locations, as well as, guides at each site. All the guides were very knowledgeable and engaged our grandson.
When our original flight was canceled and rescheduled to the next day, we communicated with Maria who was able to rearrange part of our scheduled activities. They were all very responsive when we had any questions.
We would highly recommend Greek Mythology tours for travel in Greece.

This was the trip of a lifetime for my daughter and I! From picking us up at the airport to the almost tearful final departure with our tour guides, every part of this tour was well planned, well executed, and the height of professionalism. We were lucky enough to have three different local tour guides as we travelled between cities and they were each so well educated and engaging. My daughter adored learning about the Greek mythology, culture, and history, and they tied the Percy Jackson books in so well! If (more likely when) we come back to Greece, we will absolutely be using this tour group again!

Choosing a favorite part of our time is impossible. I chose this trip because my 14 year old grandson loves Greek mythology and the Percy Jackson books. Everything about our experience was more than we could hope for. The guides were fun and interesting. They brought the myths, history, and modern/current events in Greece together seamlessly with their stories and information. Even the rides in-between locations were filled with information about current and ancient Greece. The drivers were great - from the airport to the tour buses and back to the airport. We would both return in a heartbeat. And the food is beyond compare!
We created memories to last a lifetime and are so very grateful for this experience.

We took our 12 year old grandson for a Percy Jackson mythology tour and we had a great time. GreekingMe did a wonderful job and we could not be more pleased. Since this was our grandson’s trip we wanted him to be happy and I can say that he was! All of our guides and drivers were very knowledgeable and professional. GreekingMe accommodated our personal wishes to see a site not otherwise on the tour schedule. If you want to tour Greece you should definitely have GreekingMe plan your tour.

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.

Dear Jenny, Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences! Offering you a fascinating and memorable experience is really important to us, and I am truly glad you had an amazing time! It was our pleasure sharing with you the unique Greek mythology and culture paths through the archaeological sites of our country; our special Percy Jackson archaeologist-guides, and for sure Aggeliki, are indeed giving life to Percy Jackson stories in the most admirable and knowledgeable way. Thank you very much for trusting Greek Mythology Tours for your trip to Greece. We will be very happy to host you again in the future! Best regards from our whole team, Nadia

The small group tour with Alex was fantastic! My daughter (10) loves Greek myths and has read all the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riorden. Alex was able to talk to her about them and show the temples to Zeus, Athena, Hephaestus, and other gods to her in a way that really helped bring those books to life. Only reason it's not a 5-star review is because the Acropolis was incredibly crowded. So much so, that it was hard to walk around or see much. Apparently a cruise ship was in dock. Our tour was in the morning, but it might be a better idea to take the afternoon tour after the cruise-ship tourists are back on the boat.

Thank you for taking the time to sharing your thoughts and experiences! We are very happy that our Percy Jackson tour brought to life mythology and novel settings, offering you an enjoyable and interactive time with our guide! It is true that Acropolis can be overcrowded in the summer, so avoiding the heat during morning hours is always helpful for one to enjoy the tour as well as bear the crowds, that are not significantly fewer in later hours :) We will be happy to host you again if you decide to visit Greece in the future! All the best, Greek Mythology Tours Team

We had a fantastic tour with Vicky!! She was amazing - knowledgeable, warm, and entertaining. She shared with us the perfect balance of mythology, history and legend. We all learned so much. She showed us every part of the acropolis, sharing stories and helping us see what it was like during ancient times using virtual reality on an iPad. We then went to the Acropolis Museum which was fantastic!! I highly recommend this tour. Our three boys, ages 12, 10 and 9, LOVED it!!!
