Enjoyable Greek Mythology Tour for all ages!

Such a fun historical tour. We saw some of the most beautiful ancient temples and buildings and learned about the crazy stories behind them. It’s worth having a guide to entertain and engage you with history, myths, and legends and test your knowledge. I never usually pay for a personal guide. I mostly opt for an audio guide or just read plaques and Google, but this guided tour is worth paying for!


Highly Recommended tour!

Our time spent on the Greek Islands and in Athens was amazing, and one of my favorite parts was this mythology tour. Our guide told us so many stories about Ancient Athens, the Acropolis Museum, and the archaeological sites we saw on our tour of the Acropolis. A truly memorable experience with a great tour guide!
