Our small-group Percy Jackson half-day mythology tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum is ideal for families who want to see the heart of Ancient Athens and have fun at the same time! During this family Athens mythology tour, you’ll learn the history and listen to myths and legends from your specially-trained guide. There’s no better way for your kids to experience the magnificent Acropolis and Parthenon, and if they are fans of Percy Jackson, they can even see some of the places mentioned in the books and movies.

What to expect:

The small-group half-day Athens mythology tour for families begins when you meet our local expert guide. You will quickly discover that there are hours of fun ahead due to their kid-friendly nature! On the walk up the sacred Acropolis Hill, they will keep everyone engaged by speaking about the different myths and legends associated with the city and Acropolis. If your kids are fans of the Percy Jackson books, they may already know about the stories of Athena and Poseidon, but there are many others to hear.

Once at the top, our guide will show you around the Acropolis and Parthenon, pointing out interesting features, great photo spots, and viewpoints. There will also be a number of interactive games and quizzes for the kids to take part in depending on their age.

On leaving the Acropolis, our guide will lead the way to the Acropolis Museum for the second part of the tour.

We had a wonderful experience with Aggeliki on our Percy Jackson tour. She was incredibly knowledgable and engaging for my boys (ages 8&10). They learned a ton all through storytelling and I was amazed that they lasted for a full 4 hour tour. I highly recommend!!

This was a good tour. We met Eva at the meeting point with 2 other families (total 12 tourists). Eva spent time explaining the details of the Acropolis, Parthenon both in terms of history and 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. Recommended.

We had a private tour for 12 that started at the Acropolis with an amazing guide (Vicky) who was a trained archeologist & anthropologist & incredible story teller. They arranged 3D iPads for the kids, which were incredible— definitely add those to your tour. Vicky maintained a great pace in the museum, which was beautifully done. She did a great job engaging the kids, including our 9 year old who wanted to co-lead the myth telling. Afterward, she lead us to a Spartan restaurant where we were the only tourists.

My wife and two daughters just completed the two day Percy Jackson English speaking tour and we LOVED it! Both our daughters read the Rick Riordan series and were not disappointed because our guide Vera was outstanding! She has a degree in archeology and knew Greek history inside and out. She was very patient with us allowing time for breaks from the heat and knew all the shady spots to rest while she told us fascinating stories about the sites.
Vera met us at our hotel and we walked to the Acropolis. She took the time to learn about our interests as we walked and we stopped for tablets we used to show what the sites looked like in ancient times. The view from Acropolis of Athens was fantastic. Vera knew where we could get best pictures and avoid crowded spots. She took us to Acropolis museum at bottom of hill and provided interesting history of all the ancient artifacts. And the museum had air conditioning! She told us we could eat lunch on our own but We treated her to lunch in museum cafe because we enjoyed her company.

We had not expected such an interesting and thorough visit to sites mentioned in teh 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 were.The quality of this tour made the price a valued expedience.

Greek Mythology Tours is one of the best company I dealt with, I’ve booked Percy Jackson semi-private Tours and it was fantastic, everything was perfect as mentioned in the offers sent to me by Nikos who organized this tours, excellent tour guides providing us with helpful information ( Eva & Marialena), well-organized timetable was exact and loved to visit different winery, the tour program, both families with us, everything was perfect, and they make my vacation one of the best vacation in my lifetime. I would like to thank Eva & Marialena, as they were very knowledgeable and super energetic. Eva made the trip that much more enjoyable, and special thanks to Nikos for his great work, kindness, and support, as he is so professional.
Definitely, I recommend this company, as it is the best way to get to know Greece especially if you have children.

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!!!

Took this tour based on the reviews and their emphasis on Percy Jackson. We did a small group Acropolis and Acropolis Museum tour.
Nadia, the operation manager, did a great job with communications and setup.

Vicky was our tour guide, and we had a separate driver. Valerie was great because she was not only a certified tour guide (which is a big thing in Europe), but also an archeology student, which was even cooler because she could show us small details most tour guides would miss (example: how to tell stone from clay pottery shards). She was very inclusive of the kids and had included iPad viewers which simulated the Acropolis in its heydey. The kids loved it!

This is a great trip for kids who are interesting in Greek mythology and history and want to know more. Thank you Greek Mythology Tours!

We had Ageliki as our guide. She is an archeologist. Our tour was semi private Percy Jackson. We had two other families with kids less than 12 yo.
The tour started at 8 and included acropolis and museum. iPad included for kids for Augmented reality
Angeliki was informative and engaging. Informative for adults who didn’t know the entire mythology many kids knew from
Percy Jackson. She was engaging with kids and kept them engaged by quizzing them.
Would highly recommend it.
