The tour was downright brilliant. Christina was superb. She weaved together myths with the history of Athens and Greece, making everything a well-rounded story. If it wasn’t for this tour we wouldn’t have seen some of the most amazing monuments in Athens, because we wouldn’t even know that they were there. With us seeing the best known attractions on our own this tour was the cherry on the pie, making Athens unforgettable. I learned a lot, even my boyfriend, a mythology geek, learned a few new interesting things. To top it off, Christina has given us outstanding recommendations for other things to see and food to eat (best souvlaki we ever ate) Definitely recommend!

Great tour with a knowledgeable and very interesting guide! She had many wonderful stories about the gods and showed us how they still are influencing our present day lives. We would highly recommend taking this tour as it not only gave us a background in mythology, it gave us a chance to visit a number of beautiful spots around the city and gave us an orientation of the layout of the city.

My guide was Pascal and he was wonderful; very personable, and very knowledgeable about the area - but in a refreshing way: Pascal showed us "hidden" gems that are hidden in plain sight, it was amazing! He was generous with his regional mastery and gave us great recommendations for places that would be good to visit, which I really appreciated. Most of all, he was patient when I got myself a bit turned around & couldn't find the meeting point; Pascal reached out to me & came to me (I was around a corner) so we could start the tour, I am very grateful because the tour was, again, amazing. I highly recommend this tour, it was packed with information in a short period of time so you have the rest of the day to continue exploring - a great way to maximize your time - and Pascal is great!
