"This activity was a favorite with my kids. They really enjoyed dressing up like ancient Athenians. My youngest loved learning to write her name in Greek and has been writing everything in Greek since our tour. They loved playing statue and learned a lot on the walking tour. The snack was good and the craft was fun. The length of the tour was also good, perfect to catch their attention and enjoy, but not so long they got bored. The only thing I would do differently is not put the goodies we got in a carryon on the way home. Security took our olive oil and the tangerine treat, before we even got to try them. Overall a great tour."
