We truly had the most wonderful time on this private family tour of the Acropolis. It was the highlight of our time in Athens! Our guide, Maria Elena was magic. She made the world of mythology come to life, and was phenomenal with my nine-year old daughter. She got down on her level, answered her questions, gave vivid illustrations of the Greek Gods, our surroundings, and how they go hand-in-hand, and she always found shady spots for us to sit for a quick break and the showed us the best (secret) spots for photos!

Thank you a thousand times over, for this unforgettable experience.

We had a wonderful tour of the Acropolis with Evita! She was a fantastic guide, and she did great with our group of six kiddos ages 2-8. At the beginning of the tour she sat down with the kids and explained—with pictures!—the 12 main gods of Olympus. After the kids had the basics, she took us around the Acropolis and narrated the various myths and legends that originated from various places in the Acropolis. The story telling really helped keep the kids attention, and she had plenty of facts for the adults. I LOVED that Evita brought visual aids for the kids—the pictures of what the Acropolis looked like at it’s zenith really helped the kids imaginations.

I’d recommend doing the earliest tour possible. We started at 0800 and ended around 1000 which was just about perfect. One thing that was especially awesome was that, because we were within a 15 minute walk to the Acropolis, our guide met us at our apartment and walked us up to the site! No getting lost or awkwardly trying to find a guide for us. Thanks Evita!

We loved our tour. It accomplished the impossible task of keeping our kids engaged for almost two hours, the information we received survived the visit, the ipads were a big hit and our 5-year old says the Acropolis was his favorite experience in the vacation in Greece (which included one week at the seaside). So, thanks a lot, and keep up the good work!

We had an amazing time with Marie our private tour guide. She is a native Athenian and extremely knowledgeable about history and archaeology. She did a great job keeping the kids engaged and explaining what we were about to see all throughout the tour. We went to the Acropolis and the Ancient Agora and had a great time. Katerina was the person who helped us book our tour. She was able to rearrange our tour date to the following day because we had issues entering Greece because of our PLFs. In such a stressful time, we really appreciate their accommodations and flexibility. It made all the difference. I can’t recommend this company more!

We were a family of 4 - 2 adults 2 children cost 280Euros (2 ipads included for 3d viewing); tickets separate cost. This was a good tour. We met Eva at the meeting point with 2 other families for a total of 12 tourists. Eva spent a lot of time explaining the details of the Acropolis, Parthenon both in terms of history and in terms of the Percy Jackson books. She led the kids in questions and games and it was a great experience. Eva knew the best places for shade and pictures. This was a 1/2 day semi private tour and we felt we got a good tour learning a lot about Greek history along with Greek Gods. We recommend this tour for Percy Jackson fans.

This tour was fantastic! I took my 13 1/2 year old grandson, who is an ardent fan of all the Rick Riordan books, and he loved this tour. All the tour leaders are archeologists, with full knowledge of all the Percy Jackson books, incorporating them all into the tour.
They fully engaged my grandson in the dialogue, making it very personal.
Greeking.me took care of all arrangements for us, including hotels, drivers, transfers with explicit directions for all venues. I cannot say enough good things about their organization and attention to detail.
Christina with greeking.me also assisted with the rest of our trip in Rome, which was also wonderful.

Wow this was a phenomenal 5 day tour with a focus on Greek Mythology as discussed in Percy Jackson. Perfect way to engage the child in your life. My 11year old son was completely engrossed and we had the best time. Greeking Me took us allover Athens, Sounio, Delphi, Corinth, Mycenae, Nafplio and more! We really had a good understanding of the entire history of Greece from the beginning of time to the modern day. Truly incredible! Also the most knowledgeable guides and drivers, always helpful, punctual and seamlessly organized. We went in December and I would highly recommend this time of year for the comfortable temperatures and absolutely no lines anywhere. At some sites we were the only ones there!!! Honestly this has been the most amazing trip! Thank you Greeking Me!!!

Eva at greeking.me was amazing! She tailored the tour perfectly for our 2 Percy Jackson obsessed kids (age 9 & 13).

I cannot recommend Eva highly enough. Even though she wasn’t feeling well on the day of our tour she was still full of enthusiasm. And her English is perfect!

Of course, the kids loved the iPads too! Really brought the ruins to life.

But mostly they loved showing off their knowledge of Greek Mythology and learning lots of new fascinating facts and stories too.

She made the tour of the acropolis & museum really fun and interesting for them.

Greeking.me were great to deal with, booking was easy, and customer service was really friendly.

Our guide was an invaluable part of our experience at the Acropolis. If it wasn’t for her, I would have been looking at a bunch of old white pillars that meant nothing to me. There was little to no signage to explain what you’re looking at. Marilena brought the monuments to life with stories of mythology and daily life in Ancient Greece. She had iPads with a cool program where you could point them at a site and it would show you what it would have looked like at the time. Really helped make sense of what you’re looking at.

Our group was very mixed in background knowledge including a toddler, 10 year old, archaeologist, and adults with no background in Ancient Greece. Marilena kept everyone engaged the entire time. (With the exception of the toddler, but that’s to be expected. And she was always understanding when he was distracting or one of us needed to step away from the group. She was great with him and made us feel he was welcome and enjoyed- a trait we’ve found lacking in other tour guides when faced with a strong-willed toddler). I’d strongly recommend her to anyone.

Marilena also recommended a couple amazing local restaurants that we wouldn't have known about. She came to dinner with us and helped us chose food and wine. She's such a wealth of local knowledge. We laughed together and learned from her expertise. I feel like I truly made a friend.
