Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. Kids love mythology, and the light fun manner in which I conduct archaeological tours!

Friendly: No.
With guests with light mobility restrictions we will make arrangements for the use of the lift at the Acropolis on a complimentary basis, of course, and with presentation of some sort of medical certificate. This approval will reach us on the same morning of the tour because it has to do with winds and weather. The use of the lift will save you half of the steps. Still, there will be some uneven ground to be covered (approx. 300 meters). If we can't use the lift, we may leave a portion out.

Discover the rise and the fall of Athens through myths and monuments!


If there's one landmark you should visit in Athens: it's the Acropolis. But why not do it in an original and fun way, by discovering the myths surrounding the major monuments of the Ancient City?

From the birth of the glorious city, through its Golden Age all the way to its downfall to the Spartan armies, this unconventional city tour will reveal the wonderful stories of Greek mythology, but also their true meaning and the historical facts behind them. You will visit all the most emblematic sites of Ancient Athens, but also less known ones, rarely visited by tourists, yet hiding marvellous treasures.

Enjoy an unique mythological tour, suitable for all ages, that will help you understand how Athens became the mythical city we know today.

Tour Highlights:
Explore all the major landmarks of ancient Athens.
Learn about Greek Gods and Heroes and discover what really hides behind the universal myths.

Enjoy views!

A Recent Review of this tour

Danae was an amazing tour guide. The ancient sights in Athens came alive through her stories of mythology and history. And her love of her city was evident. I highly recommend the walking tour. We were able to see all the sights and enjoy a coffee break without dealing with Athens traffic. It felt more Greek to walk through the city!!! Thank you Danae for a great afternoon!!! And for recommending dinner options!!!
