Nice to hear the why instead of how things are built.

This was a fun tour that focused on the reasons the buildings were built instead of the how, which was great! It was cool to listen to the stories of the God's and how they are tied into each place! My sister had sprained her ankle and the guide took plenty of breaks and kept a slower pace, so we were able to participate.

I went to the Acropolis on my own the first day. Second day I did this tour and realized I missed 80% of what I should have seen. Take this tour first. It’s informative

I highly recommend this tour. 4 hour well spent. You will have a very good idea about ancient Athens, and also you can get more familiar with Greek mythology. Our tour guide: Alex studied archaeology in school and work in many archeological sites. It’s very educational to tour with him.

Don’t hesitate - go on this tour!!!

The stories that Alex told us were seriously riveting and really brought all the archaeological sites to life. I feel like visiting each of these sites in Athens would not have been as interesting if I hadn’t gone on this tour my first day in Greece. Suddenly I want to know more about Greek mythology!

Absolutely terrific! Our guide wove together the stories so skillfully! Lots of walking but plenty of time to take it all in. Recommend better directions to the starting point but other than that absolutely a 10!

We had a nice and interesting experience during our tour. Our guide knew the historyies and brought the life of the gods and the Athenans to life during the excursion. The tour description was correct and the walk was easier than expected for us but it is understandable that some participants, especially during a warm day, can find it a bit challenging.
