I learned so much history about the city. Maira was super knowledgeable and wandered many of our question. Be warned that this tour is a lot of walking up and down hill, bring a water bottle( you can fill it up at some for what sites) and wear good shoes! My only critiques are I wish the tour came with ticket just one less thing to worry about and that there was a break for lunch. We finished around 12:30 and were starving by the end of the tour

The perfect overview of everything you need to see in Athens while learning about the history of the Greek god and goddesses and Athens. Learning about the mythology made the experiences of Athens 100x more enjoyable, wouldn’t visit without a tour or you won’t know what you’re looking at. The guide was amazing and incredibly knowledgeable!

Our guide was Bianca and I hope who ever books the myths and philosophers tour is as lucky as we were. She was extremely knowledgeable about philosophy and myths but also about Greece as a whole. We arrived to the amazing city of Athens the same day as our tour. Due to our jet lag my group was a bit tired but Bianca’s love for her city gave us the jolt of energy we needed! I HIGHLY recommend this tour!
