What a fantastic way to see Athens and try some great food along the way! Andreas was terrific, and had many things prearranged so that our stops were efficient and we were greeted upon arrival. Baklava, olive oils, Greek donuts, and more.

Our tour guide was wonderful, she made us dream, learn and cry at the end with an emotional speech we thought we were in ancient Athens listening to Pericles himself. Our daughter loved it.

Our guide was absolutely amazing! (I believe that his name was Alexander). He was very knowledgeable, a great speaker and had a wonderful sense of humor. He made ancient Athens and Greek mythology come to life. I cannot even imagine seeing these sights without a wonderful tour guide like we had. It was wonderful. Simply wonderful.

This was the absolute best tour - our guide was incredible and we learned so much. She was courteous and knowledgable and entertained lots of additional questions from my teenager! 100% recommend this tour for anyone but especially if you have kids / teens. Entertaining and magical!

“We highly reccommend this adventure for any group - in my case I was taking 4 teens along. From the start, the activity required full focus and participation from all - from javelin throwing to discuss and relay running. The whole activity was very cleverly organised to share historical highlights and information with a twist. My teens did not only pick up the basic historical and mythological background of the olympic games but loved doing it and wanted more ! We loved every minute and our host was inspiring, very skilled and fantastic with teens. If you want a fitness session with a twist to wake up the interest of teens in athens - then this is a must ! Five star and we would give more if we could !
