We really enjoyed the Acropolis Percy Jackson tour with Evita, our lovely guide. We got so much information to take in and all so interesting. She helped us take in the significance of all we saw. She was very patient with us and interacted with our daughter who is a mythology buff. Highly recommended!

Our Percy Jackson experience was superb! Marialena was an outstanding tour guide: not only was she so friendly and easy to get along with, she provided a wealth of information that made the sights just “come alive” for us all. She was especially engaging with our kids, aged 16 and 18. We learned more from her than we ever could have on our own. This trip was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a unique, memorable experience.

My family were in Athens around Christmas, 2017 and did the Percy Jackson Acropolis and Museum tour. Our tour guide, Evita, was so interesting and simply wonderful – A highly qualified archaeologist (among many other qualifications I wish I could remember), she was so knowledgeable and fully engaged with our kids, who hung off her every word for the whole 4 hours. I highly recommend Greek Mythology Tours and Evita. She really did make us “live” the Greek experience and we can’t wait to come back!!

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 Greek Mythology Tours!

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.

We opted for the 3D IPad enhanced tour. However, we barely needed it. Our guide Marialena was so amazing and had an incredible knowledge of not only the Greek history and mythology but also how references to it appeared in the Percy Jackson books and movies. My son is shy but she did a great job of engaging him with questions and acknowledging his contribution to our tour! It was an amazing experience. Also Christina went above and beyond to arrange safe airport transports for us to and from out hotel and to and from the airport. I will definitely use this company again when I come back to Greece!

We took our 12 year old grandson for a Percy Jackson mythology tour and we had a great time. GreekMythologyTours 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. GreekMythologyTours accommodated our personal wishes to see a site not otherwise on the tour schedule. If you want to tour Greece you should definitely have GreekMythologyTours plan your tour.

Greek Mythology Tours is outstanding in every way!
Christina, was amazing in helping us plan for our trip. She is the ultimate professional, going well above and beyond, taking care to attend to every possible detail. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging, capturing the attention of all for entire duration of the tour. We have many wonderful and lasting memories from our experience and highly recommend Greek Mythology Tours!

We did the half day tour of the acropolis, Parthenon and museum.
We also did the day tour to Temple of Delphi. In May half term 2019.
2 adults and 2 teenagers (18 and 13).
Eva was our guide both days. She was great.
8 am start for acropolis , so missed the crowds and heat. We didn’t have to queue for tickets and she gave us a good overview, with the key items/ stories. After acropolis went into museum. If you like to look at each thing in buildings and museums, then this isn’t for you, but if you want to see enough to get the overall history, story, purposes etc and still have the kids interested then it’s great.
At Delphi we were taken to a local restaurant for lunch (Eva and driver sat elsewhere). They had water bottles for us in the car. Lovely scenery. No commentary when in the van, but excellent at the temple, again giving summaries and overall stories about the temple and related things, but not analysing each statue. It was hot though and children flagged being outside with minimal shade, as it was 10.30 when we got there. Went around the museum after the temple. Nice toilets.
Had iPads each day that gave views of what the temples would have looked like originally which was really useful.
