Please note: This tour does not include hotel pick up and drop off service. This means that you will have to arrange your own transfers to reach the designated meeting point and start the tour. Meeting point: Olympian Zeus Temple. Detailed instructions will be sent to you upon booking.
Start your tour at the magnificent Temple of Olympian Zeus which was, and still is, the unofficial entry point to Athens and the mythological start of this glorious city.
From there, your English-speaking guide will take you all the way to the Theater of Dionysus and the Acropolis to visit the Temple of Athena Nike, the Temple of Erechtheion, the Propylaia and of course, the marvellous Parthenon.
It is here that the most famous ancient myths come to life, stories about Gods and Heroes, such as almighty Zeus, Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and protector of Athens, Poseidon, God of the Sea, Dionysus, God of Wine and many more. But what’s even more intriguing is that you’ll also find out what truths hide behind these myths and why the Ancient Greeks created them.
Your tour back in time continues to the Ancient Agora. It is here that democracy was born and where great philosophers such as Socrates spoke about global truths. Here you’ll have a rare chance to see the Hephaisteion, the most perfectly preserved of Greece’s temples and one shared between Athena and the God of the forge, Hephaestus. You‘ll hear more mythical stories about Theseus and the Minotaur, the jealous wife of Zeus, Hera and Aphrodite, Goddess of love and beauty.
This walk will also help you figure out how this city was created and how it rose to become one of the greatest cities of the old world, how Athens managed to create such a reputation and such monuments that are still immortal and legendary. Just like their Gods.

Even though it is Covid-19 time, we cautiously participated in this tour and had a very good time. With the help of the audio guide system our guide provided us with, we kept the mandatory distance and didn't put ourselves in danger at all. Greek mythology is truly brilliant and we wouldn't miss to discover it.
Should have been a five star, but the hot weather its the only small hick-up, ok its Athens but next time we will reach the place in December! A very well and interesting day, we are a family of 4, have to say that mom and dad were geared up for a very boring and slow day, nothing like it, almost fascinating, well done for the guiding, the plan, the walks, the lot...cheers!
A friend of ours told us about this tour and we decided to give it a go! Although we had a really bad start (totally our fault cause we got up late after a girls’ night out), the staff there was very understanding and even though we where a bit late, they helped us to participate in the tour. As for the tour itself, it was a great experience because first, we learned many interesting stuff about Ancient Greek History and mythology and second, our guide was very polite and answered every question our group had (this is one of the most important things, in my opinion). All in all, I recommend this tour and I would totally do it again!
Our guide really made our time spent special. The knowledge and enthusiasm about the sites and the passion for Ancient Athens and its history were a definite bonus , felt like we traveled in time, great staff...perhaps bit more hot for us Canadians but still great.
