Really worth doing!

Rather than walking round the sights just taking pictures, it was great to have someone explain all of the stories, real and legend. It was a really brilliant experience and would highly recommend. Doing the morning tour also meant we had the whole afternoon free to enjoy Athens!

Natalie was a WONDERFUL guide!! Very knowledgeable and always patient with us when we asked questions. Please tell her, if you can, that her dining recommendation for En Iordani was superb...we went back twice! She was so helpful to all of us at all times.

Very nice and educational tour of some of the most important ruins of Athens. Not only was Anastasia full of knowledge about the city, it’s history and mythology, she was also a very sweet and funny woman. Would definately recommend this to anyone who wants to not only see the highlights, but also know more about the stories behind them.

Pretty fun tour

This is a great way to see the sights of the acropolis and hear some entertaining stories of Greek mythology. It is hard to keep it all straight though so if you just want to get pictures of the sights you don’t need this tour. Our guide however was very good and accommodating to the members of our group. She was good at making sure no one was left behind

Worthwhile Mythological Tour with Effie
J_L
, May 2022
Effie was an amazing tour guide. She was funny, knowledgeable and easy to understand. Not sure I would have made it to the top of the Acropolis and down without her expertise and guidance. She knew exactly where we should step and guided us patiently, while filling our heads with all the wonder of the Greek myths. I learned a lot and had a pleasant day because of Effie. Well worth it! Thank you so much!

No help if lost

I'm not reviewing your tour because I was late to meet up spot due to being lost and wasn't able to go. My review is based on trying to get in touch with someone with number listed, then leaving message on this Viator site asking how can catch up & meet up somewhere else. No answer, no response. I ended up seeing sites from a taxi. I did get a text sending me a link to parking lot but by that time I was well into my taxi tour. It shouldn't be that hard to get in touch with someone.

The mythological tour with Alex was fantastic, such a knowledgeable guide, fabulous views. Stunning scenery. At this time of year (May) it was not that busy which is a bonus. Cannot thank Alex enough, for an excellent day.

Excellent guide, beautiful scenery. A perfect way to spend the morning when as a business traveler I only had one free day in Athens.
