Athens Mythology Tour – Acropolis Hill and Acropolis Museum
Are you looking for an afternoon of exploring the ancient world? Our Athens Mythology Tour is the perfect choice for you — a fun and educational trip to the Acropolis followed by an immersive stop at the Acropolis Museum.
During this 4-hour private tour, your family will learn about the mythology of ancient Greece, and the gods and heroes, what inspired the Acropolis, and the reasons why Athens was once one of the greatest cities in the world.
After arriving at the Acropolis, your family friendly guide will give you a creative tour of the site’s major monuments. You’ll hear the stories of the Parthenon, the Theater of Dionysus, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Temple of Erechtheion, as well as the Sanctuary of Asclepius.
While in the Acropolis, you’ll be given an iPad that’s been preloaded with an extra augmented reality program. This new ‘touring’ tool will help you visualize how the Acropolis looked in ancient times. You’ll be able to see a full 3D colored reconstruction of the 5th century BC statues, buildings, and ancient objects – it’s a truly incredible experience. Click here to watch a video of the application.
Afterwards, you’ll make your way down to the Acropolis Museum, where you’ll be able to discover even more about the history, mythology and culture of the ancient world.
The family friendly focus of our Athens Mythology Tour makes it a great alternative to standard guides that can often be a bit dull for the little ones. Instead, we offer fun and creative insight into Athenian society, letting kids imagine the rise and fall of ancient Athens.
We’ve created a perfectly crafted storyline, and your tour guide will be a professional storyteller specialized in bringing the ancient world to life.

Kids Love Greece helped make our trip to Athens easy, educational and fun. Maria organized pick up and drop off at our hotel in Cape Sounio, provided a kid-friendly tour of the Acropolis and even found an eco-friendly, vegetarian restaurant in Athens that was the best meal of our trip. Thank you for all your help!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! You have been a pleasure to work with! We wish you all the best!
Eva was our guide. She was well prepared for engaging our grandchildren and raising their level of curiosity about ancient history and mythology. She is educated with a masters dergree in archeology and as a native of the area she was able to help us not only with lessons in history for the children but how to find a good restaurant as well as the best shopping. She had books with photos depicting the gods and goddesses. She took us to the perfect not crowded best photo spots. With her charm and knowledge she made the day a great success
Dear Natalie,Thank you so much for taking time to share with us your experience with our guide, Eva, who is indeed fantastic. We are particularly happy to read that she was able to keep your grandchildren engaged and curious about Greek mythology and ancient history. We trust that you photos you took that day will bring back the amazing family memories from that day in Athens. I wish you all the best!Warm regards from Greece!Maria
It was a great tour.. Although the weather was windy especially when we reached the summit (Acropolis) at the end of our tour, but we really enjoyed it. We took very nice photos and knew a lot about the Greek myths. In addition to that Marialena took us first to Plaka, and we could go there by our own on the next day. We were definitely blessed that we chose our first day in Greece to be the day of our tour because the following 3 days were rainy, and we had to cancel many of our outside plans!
Marialena is a nice tour guide. She planned the tour well considering our delay and the time of closure of the museum.
Thank you and send our warm greetings to Marialena.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. I am so glad that you enjoyed the Acropolis and Athens despite the weather conditions :-( Doing the tours the first day was definitely a smart decision! I will pass your warm greetings to the amazing Marialena! I hope we see you back soon for more unforgettable memories!
Eva was outstanding. She has multiple degrees in archeology, greek history and culture, and child education. She met us at the terminal and arranged for a taxi into the city. She encouraged and support my 84yo mother to walk with us, while entertaining and educating my 5yo niece and 12yo daughter. Everyone loved her and our half day at the Parthenon and nearby sights was perfect. Don’t hesitate in booking her.
Amazing guide. Perfect balance. Well judged
Thank you so much! We cannot agree with you more. An amazing guide can make the Acropolis come alive! So glad that we accomplished that for you!
I highly recommend KidsLoveGreece. The tour guides were wonderful and the support staff always there to answer unending questions. I liked the way our guide Evita always lowered her body to kid level to speak to the children, listened carefully and heard the quiet, mumbled questions and was flexible when they got tired and cranky. High marks all around!
From the start of my inquiry to the last minutes of our tour with our guide, Aris, everything was seamless, easy, and exactly what we wanted! Thank you to Maria and her team- it was a first rate experience scheduling the tour and Aris was a terrific tour guide. Kids Love Greece should be first on your list for tours in Greece. They offer creative and exciting options for tours with children and cater to a clientele who is expecting a high level of customer service. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kids Love Greece and will use you again on our next trip. 5 PLUS STARS!!

Kids Love Greece was created by parents for parents so we fully understand the importance of reliable and high level of customer service. Thank you for your trust! Maria
Planning the tour with Maria was very efficient and completely done online which could not have been any easier. Our tour guide Eva, was very knowledgeable and kind. It was apparent that she could connect parts of the ?Percy Jackson? stories to what our sons knew and that was great. Our families felt that there was a bit too much talking (Which was fine for the adults but lost on the kids after some time.) and that more active engagement would have kept their attention longer. (Such as a game or treasure hunt or tools they could hold or touch along the way.) That being said, we loved seeing the highlights of the Acropolis and ancient Athens. It is a trip we will not soon forget!
Dear Sarah,Thank you so much for your compliments. It has been a real pleasure to have you in our family friendly guided tour and we truly welcome your feedback. We are actually working on a new innovative additions to our tours which will spark kids’ imagination even more. I am also very happy to hear that your two Percy Jackson fans loved exploring the wonders of Acropolis and ancient Athens!I really hope we welcome you to our country one day soon. There is so much to see and do!All the best to you and your family, Sarah!
Every detail was perfectly executed and the follow up from Kids Love Greece was excellent. They added greatly tour our family experience with special details for our three children.
Thank you so much for sharing with us your great experience with our company. It has been our pleasure to help you plan your trip to Greece!
Notre guide en français était très agréable, et s’est montrée très patiente avec les enfants, se mettant à leur niveau et faisant attention à ne pas les lasser. Nous avons passé un très bon moment à visiter l’Acropole et le musée avec elle.
Thanks so much, we had an amazing tour of the Acropolis and Museum with Marialena. the kids really enjoyed it, the 3D ipads and fun stories made a huge difference, Marialena was excellent!

Hello, I am interested in a guided tour with the 3D IPad but I don’t need a 4h tour. My kids are small and will complain after max. 1-2h. Could you offer something shorter as well for a family of 5 for the 28.10. 22
Thank you for coming back to me.
Hi Carolyn, thank you for your request. We can certainly offer you a shorter version of our 4 hours tour. Actually, we recommend that you only include one site, our recommendation will be the Acropolis in your case (2 hours). Maria sent you via email all the info that you requested.
Would like best options for a day that could include Parthenon, etc.
Hi David, thank you for your interest in our Athens Mythology Tour in the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. This tour lasts 4 hours and includes a visit to the Acropolis Hill (where the Parthenon is located among other Temples) as well as a visit to the Acropolis Museum. Another version of the tour is the Acropolis Hill and Ancient Agora (4 hours as well). We could also do a much longer version of the tour with includes Acropolis Hill, Ancient Agora (or Museum) as well as a Mythology Food Tour in Plaka/ Psiri and surrounding areas (up to 7 hours). It all depends on how long you would like the tour to be. We could even offer only a tour in the Acropolis Hill (two hours). It all depends on what you are looking for. We pride ourselves in our ability to customize any of our tours!
