- "This tour was brilliant! We went on a Percy Jackson tour with our 9 year old son, he loved it and so did we. Our guide, Katerina was simply perfect! I highly recommend her."

- "Our two girls (10 and 9) are Percy Jackson fanatics. They had such a great and memorable time with our amazing quest leader Kat. It was well organized and creative. The adults learned plenty about the gods and Greek mythology and I think we saw parts of the city we may not have ventured to. We had a few pit stops along the quest which were nice and a welcomed cool break."

- "Myself, my grandson and nephew, both 13 years old, signed up for the Percy Jackson "Heroes to save Athens" experience. We spent an amazing 2.5 hours exploring and learning about the history of Athens by visiting so many sites around the Acropolis. Our guide Katerina was exceptional in leading the quest safely and interfacing with the children. I highly recommend this adventure to families with young children."

2. What you can expect
Are you a fan of Percy Jackson? Have you ever dreamt of exploring ancient Athens, just like Percy did in his quests? Now is your chance to make that dream come true! Join us on a thrilling scavenger hunt inspired by Percy Jackson, and discover the mysteries and some of the best sights of the city while having an unforgettable adventure.
Our scavenger hunt will take you through the heart of Athens, where you will encounter challenges inspired by Percy's quests. You'll need to solve riddles and puzzles, decipher codes, and use your wits to uncover hidden clues and hints.
Along the way, we’ll also encounter some of the gods and goddesses that Percy and his fellowship encountered in their adventures. We'll seek the help of Athena, the patron goddess of Athens, as we navigate the challenges ahead. We’ll also be calling on the wisdom of Socrates himself to help guide us on our quest. And of course, we can't forget about Pan, the mischievous satyr (Grover Underwood knows him very well), who may have a trick or two up his sleeve to help us out.
As we stroll along the winding paths of Athens’ historic center, you will hear the echoes of the past and bring to life Olympian Gods, mesmerizing Nymphs, and legendary heroes! From Annabeth to Grover and from Theseus to Zeus, there are many who will come to your aid. Beware though because there are others, like Poseidon, who may not favor your quest…
As our hunt comes to an end, you will leave Athens with a newfound appreciation for the rich history and mythology of this ancient city. You will have walked in the footsteps of heroes, demigods and legends, and experienced the magic of Percy Jackson's world come to life.
A creative and fun way to discover Athens while bringing to life our favorite heroes from the Percy Jackson series and the great tales from Greek mythology.
So gather your fellow demigods and ready your weapons, for the fate of Athens rests in your hands. May the gods favor your quest, and may the spoils of victory be yours for the taking!
Note: Our scavenger hunt inspired by Percy Jackson is not a guided tour of the Acropolis or any other archaeological sites/museums. Instead, during the scavenger hunt, we'll explore some of Athens' best sights and hidden corners, using them as inspiration for our quest. If you are interested, we can arrange for you a guided visit to the Acropolis and the Museum inspired by Percy Jackson, with a family-friendly, state-licensed guide. Feel free to add this note to your inquiry/booking (see also our curated, family-friendly trip to Greece in the footsteps of Percy Jackson). For almost the entirety of this quest, we will be on pedestrian streets, green spaces and away from cars.
