SMALL GROUP – Percy Jackson Tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum
If you are looking for a fun and educational way to visit the Acropolis and Acropolis museum, our Percy Jackson small group tour is ideal. In the company of 3-4 other families (max 15 people), you will be shown around the very heart of Ancient Athens by our kid-friendly guide.
Along the way, you will learn about the history of the Acropolis and Athens, listen to Greek Myths from the past, and visit places mentioned in the Percy Jackson books.
The Acropolis and Acropolis Museum in Athens
If there is one place in Athens that all first-time visitors should see, it is the Acropolis and accompanying Acropolis Museum. This fortified citadel has stood through the millennia, dominating not just the landscape around it, but the very history of Greece itself.
It is classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the temples and buildings on its peak such as the Parthenon, and many significant finds have been made here. These artefacts and objects are displayed at the nearby Acropolis Museum, and visiting both complexes is essential in order to understand both its importance and the society of the Ancient Greeks.
Percy Jackson Small Group Tour
Our Percy Jackson small group tour to the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum stands leagues apart from other tours of the Acropolis. The focus is very much on a personalized experience, and for this reason, we strictly limit the numbers of each group to just 3 or 4 other families (max 15 people).
In addition, the tours have been created specifically with families in mind. We’ve carefully handpicked our Percy Jackson guides for their kid-friendly personalities, knowledge of Ancient Greece, and passion for storytelling. In a friendly atmosphere, your kids will quickly make friends with others on the tour, and everyone will enjoy a memorable and unique experience in Athens.
Tour of the Acropolis
We believe that good storytelling is a powerful way to engage both kids and adults during our Percy Jackson tours of the Acropolis. By sharing the myths and legends attached to the Acropolis, you will feel a part of the story as you walk through the past. Our guides will even explain where scenes from the Percy Jackson books took place, as well as where the inspiration for the novels and films came from.
As you marvel at the Parthenon and look down over the city of Athens, our guide will tell you everything about the fascinating competition between Poseidon and Athena to become the patron of the city!
The Acropolis Museum
On leaving the Acropolis, our guide will take you over to the nearby Acropolis Museum, which is classed as one of the best in the world. Inside, many statues, reliefs, and artefacts discovered on the Acropolis are displayed.
Your guide will show you around the museum, explaining how the ancient Greek statues were not white but were actually painted, and point out carvings that represent Greek Mythology. Remember to ask our guide about the Magic Sphere of Helios when you are there – it is one of the most curious pieces in the museum!
