My son and I had some time before we needed to catch our flight and we had asked for some assistance with our luggage and transfers to airport and requested some special details. We got everything we wanted! The tour was absolutely fascinating! We learned so much about Dubai and UAE culture and lifestyle. We could have asked questions for days!

Discover the history and the myths of ancient Athens on a private tour with a local guide. Admire the best places related to Greek gods and hear the tales behind them. Get intriguing facts of the places you’ll see and hear great insights of the context in which these myths were created.

Start your local experience and meet your guide at the Trilogy of Athens, a complex of three elegant buildings representing the 12 Olympian gods. Get an introduction to ancient Greece and take a look at the jewels of Athenian neoclassical architecture. Marvel at the impressive elements and be amazed by the details. Move on to the next stop, follow your private guide and wander around the bustling street of Sofokleous.

Let your local host tell you everything about Hermes, the god of commerce, which is known as the protector of humans. Ask about the tricks he used to play on the other gods and how he fooled Apollo. Make a stop at the Varvakios Market, a lesser-known place, where locals love to go. Gaze at all the goodies on display and take in the delicious smells surrounding you. Listen to the legends of Artemis, the goddess of hunting; Poseidon, the god of sea and Demeter, the goddess of agriculture. Learn more about their lives and understand what really hides behind their stories.
