Experience

If you’ve always dreamt of going to Camp Half-Blood, here’s your chance! Travel with us to the Percy Jackson HQ: we’re getting up, close and personal with Mount Olympus.
Head over to Greece on an adventure that blends classic Greece of over 2000 years ago to the current day. Since Greek philosophy and science is foundational to modern Western science and philosophy, it is an opportunity to up the game on a classical education. 
We start our Percy Jackson adventure with a Mythological tour of the Acropolis before moving on to Meteora and Delphi. The quest continues with a visit to Ancient Olympia followed by a visit to the seafront town of Nafplion. We end our fantastic time in Greece with a visit to ancient Corinth, home to another son of Poseidon, Bellerophon. This guy’s disastrous accidents in his youth make Percy’s seem tame!
During the trip you will have the opportunity to interact with experts on ancient Greek philosophy, culture and connectedness to modern living.

Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive in Athens Open or Close

You land at Athens – that city that, in ancient times, two people competed to be patrons of: Annabeth Chase’s mom, Athena and Percy Jackson’s dad, Poseidon. The story goes that Athena gifted the city an olive tree, and Poseidon gifted them a salt-water spring. The city folks voted for Athena… and therefore, till date, the city is called Athens. Airport transfers and dinner is arranged for all visiting Demigods (that’s you!)
Meals: Dinner

Day 2
Athens - Acropolis and the Ancient Agora Open or Close

After breakfast, head out on the Argo II to the site of the battle of the Giant Army: we’re talking about the Athens Mythology Tour of the Acropolis and the Ancient Agora. A guide / archaeologist who is also a walking wiki on all things Percy Jackson will be there to make ancient Greek history come alive; you also get to visit the Acropolis Museum.
After lunch, you enjoy the walking exploration of key sights of Athens including guided tour of the Olympic stadium. We stay overnight at Athens.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3
Athens - Meteora Open or Close

We head north west to the Meteora. As the name suggests, this heavenly place is a series of rock formations high in the mountains, and has monasteries carved into rock faces. After having taken the most spectacular envy-inducing DPs, against the setting sun at Meteora, you learn about this amazing place from your expert guide. We head to Delphi via the charming town of Kalambaka at the foothills of Meteora.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4
Meteora - Delphi Open or Close

The quest continues… but wait! What do we need to go on a quest? A prophecy... And we need the Oracle of Delphi for this. No problem! We visit the Temple of Apollo, the ancient theatre and the stadium of Delphi. You stay overnight in Delphi and watch out for Rachel Elizabeth Dare – after all, we all know she is the current Oracle of Delphi.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5
Delphi - Ancient Olympia Open or Close

If you are wearing shoes, make sure those are Nikes and not Adidas or Under Armor – because we visit Ancient Olympia – yep, the same Olympia where Percy, Leo, Frank and Hazel meet and battle Nike and Victoria. Meals: Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6
Ancient Olympia - Nafplion Open or Close

We drive to the seafront town of Nafplion. Down a gelato or two, wolf down some seriously amazing Greek food, and off we go to Mycenae. What’s the Percy Jackson connection? Remember the time the ghost of Achilles warns Percy about bathing in the river Styx? That Achilles fought the Trojan War on the side of the king of Mycenae, Agamemnon. In your free time here, walk around the Lion Gate, the Cyclopean Walls and feel invincible, much like Agamemnon did! We stay overnight at Nafplion
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7
Ancient Corinth & Epidaurus Excursion Open or Close

We visit ancient Corinth, home to another son of Poseidon, Bellerophon. This guy’s disastrous accidents in his youth make Percy’s seem tame! Now that’s a wild place for a visit! Remember Asclepius and his python, Spike? We head to his home, Asclepieon. While there, visit the Temple of Artemis – the Goddess of Hunt, as we know, and current boss of Thalia Grace. Our Olympian adventure over, we return to Athens
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Athens - Departure Open or Close

Transfer to take the flight back home. There is the optional Extension to go to Santorini, the hometown of another son of Poseidon, the Argonaut, Euphemus, for 2 nights & 3 days
