Entertaining tour for Kids and Adults alike
Kids are active, they usually have a short attention span and do not wish to stay in one place for too long. For these reasons I have created a fun, interactive, fast-paced tour which covers the major historical sites while playing a game.
In this tour I put emphasis on the mythological background as well as on the historical value of the sites visited while I give the children a series of challenges and activities to participate in so their attention is kept alive. Meanwhile, the parents can relax and enjoy the tour as their children are having fun!
This tour is ideal for children aged between 8- 12 years old. Depending though on the personal interests of your children it can apply to even younger children.
In this tour we see :
the theatre of Dionysus
the temple of Zeus
the Panathenean stadium
the national gardens
the tomb of the unknown soldier
Plaka - old town

We did a 6 hr shore excursion with Maria through Athens, which was an absolutely unforgettable tour, despite the weather being very hot that day. She was very good in engaging my 2 boys ages 9 and 11 in the questions on Greek Mythology and Ancient Greece historical facts. She has had a well-planned gelato stop right in the middle of the tour. The highlight was the Acropolis and Parthenon, both of which she described with enough detail that kept it enlightening for both children and parents.
