  • "We loved our Acropolis and Acropolis museum with a Percy Jackson theme tour. Maria was excellent! She was fun, kind, knowledgeable and we would absolutely use her for a tour again. Dimitris, the agent we corresponded with, was so helpful and scheduled two great drivers to and from the port for us plus a delicious lunch. We absolutely recommend this company and will use them again."
    - Ashley D, TripAdvisor
  • "Amazing. If I am ever back in Greece, this is the company I would use again. Dimitris, helped us set up a spectacular mythological day. We were set to do the Percy Jackson scavenger hunt and a tour of the Acropolis. Unfortunately, it rained that morning and we had to cancel our Percy Jackson hunt. He was in constant contact with us trying to sort everything out. His communication and customer service is superior. We were able to do the Acropolis tour because the weather turned out nice in the afternoon. We went around 2 PM with our guide, and she was amazing. Our boys are ages 9 and 11 years old and she added Percy Jackson facts since we missed our tour in the morning, we absolutely loved her and appreciate her consideration for our kids. I highly recommend this company."

Acropolis and Acropolis Museum Mythology Tour Inspired by Percy Jackson

 

For fans of Percy Jackson, the Acropolis is a destination not to be missed. This is the very place where the Seven and their parents faced off against a horde of giants in a final showdown. As you stroll through the ruins, you may well fancy yourself a part of that epic conflict, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with your beloved heroes and heroines in a clash of gigantic proportions! Of course, do not forget to visit the Theater of Dionysus, or Mr. D, as he is fondly referred to in the Percy Jackson series.

 

The Acropolis Museum is a world-renowned repository of treasures and a sight to behold, and with our proficient guide leading the way, you're sure to make the most of your visit. Not only will they illuminate the exhibits and artifacts with great insight and erudition, but they'll also keep the young ones entertained with their playful approach. You'll discover how Annabeth’s mother was worshipped by the Greeks, the argument between her and Poseidon, Percy’s father, and also what the everyday life of the ancient Greeks actually looked like! And you may even encounter some other familiar faces from the books… (we won’t say more)...

 

Mythology Highlights of Athens Tour Inspired by Percy Jackson

 

Besides the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum, there are more landmarks that are connected with the epic adventures of Percy Jackson and his friends. Take the Temple of Olympian Zeus for example. Despite his occasional vexing behavior in the Percy Jackson series, there's no denying that Zeus is a formidable and crucial deity. It would be a shame to pass on the chance to visit the temple that was built in honor of the king of the gods, located just a stone's throw away from the Acropolis. And then there is Areopagus Hill… The place where, according to Greek mythology, the God of War, Ares, was put to trial by the other Olympians, not because he tried to kill Percy but for other crimes he had committed.

 

Cape of Sounion and Temple of Poseidon Mythology Excursion

 

The memory of Percy Jackson's realization that he was the son of the mighty Poseidon still lingers in our minds. The very mention of his illustrious father, the Greek God of the seas, evokes images of vast expanses of water, teeming with life. Embark on your own odyssey to Sounio and allow our expert guide to show you the territory of Percy’s father, Poseidon. Don't miss the opportunity to bask in the glory of the magnificent sunset from the ancient temple, an experience that is sure to stay with you for a lifetime!
