Join us on a journey back in time to Ancient Greece to a world of mythology, full of tales of triumph and adversity. Meet the notoriously unfaithful Zeus and his entourage of equally fickle and fantastic Gods. Explore an ancient world, bewitching and beguiling, full of heroism, betrayal and resurrection as you visit the magnificent Acropolis and the Ancient Agora of Athens. Don’t leave it all to imagination! See Αθηνα as she once was in antiquity; halls of marble and gold adorned with exquisite statues and towering columns. Our virtual reality technology will place you in the very heart of the Golden Age.

Available every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 10:00 am in groups of up to 10 people. For a private tour or a different day, please send us a request.

59 € per person. Children under 11 years old can join for free.

Every tale needs a storyteller and with your local, expert guide and friend so you shall have one as you discover the world of ancient Athens! Every plinth and archway is a remnant of a time that still speaks to us now; epic battles and miracle happenings that displayed the wrath or favour of the Olympian Gods. Your erudite and charismatic guide will open up a world of gripping tales and give you a greater understanding of the context in which they came to be.

During our 4 hour Mythology Tour of Athens & the Acropolis you will wander through the ruins of ancient halls and roads where some of the greatest characters in human history once walked. Enrich your experience with our VR technology (optional) and see with your own eyes the craftsmanship and vision that inspired a civilisation. Hear the very voices of great men such as Epicurus the philosopher and Solon the statesmen as you marvel at statues that once stood before you. Using our VR glasses you will feel as if you could could reach out and touch the walls around you!

From the Ancient Agora of Athens, the epicentre of ancient Athenian daily life, to the rocky heights of Areopagus, the criminal court of Athens that once had Gods on the witness stand, our mythology tour will take you on a journey like no other. Admire the sweeping scale of the Panathenaic way and discover the stories that pervade the foundations of the Parthenon. Perfect for all ages, whether you are a history buff or yet to discover the marvels of antiquity, our licensed guide and VR technology (optional) will show you a world that is waiting to be discovered, if only you have the right tools! See these ancient sites in all their splendour and return home with tales to tell of your own.
