What you'll do

*Check with us for discounts for families and groups*

Ian Blake, an Archaeology Professor has gone missing during his research trip to Athens. Can you help us locate him?
Treasure Hunting is an alternative, engaging and fun way of exploring classical destinations. In the greater area around the sacred hill of the Acropolis, we will visit some of the most important “historic gems” and will reveal their stories through interactive and on-the-spot challenges. No entrance fee is required, the monuments that we will visit are all free to walk to. Each session is dedicated to one group at a time and children under 8 years old are free of charge. This 3-hour walk among antiquities is technology-assisted and will require imagination, creativity and a keen eye for riddles & puzzles to complete. Ideal for wannabe treasure hunters!
The game can be played in a few different versions tailored to the team's experience and expectations:
for friends (16 - 99+) or family (08 - 99+) with or without a game coordinator. You pick your fun!

I’m a passionate enigma lover & mystery solver, an avid gamer and have studied Ancient Greek language & history. I'm also a hobbyist web-designer. From young age, I used to hide treasures for my friends to unearth, inspiring the thrill of adventure during the hot summer afternoons. In the recent past, I have participated and developed several treasure hunting & scavenging projects for museums and summer camps through my volunteering activity. I have now combined all my talents, knowledge and passion to create an unforgettable Treasure Hunting experience in Athens, the capital of myths and legends.

Where you'll be

We will meet at the Acropolis metro station and will walk around the Acropolis Hill, covering the historic center of Athens. We will stop over at the major landmarks (no entrance fee required) where Prof. Ian Blake was last seen but whimsically managed to cover his trail. Let's see what he has been up to!

Do this with your children! You won’t regret it! Everyone with primary school kids should do this experience! Our son left saying “That was so much better than just walking around!” With this scavenger hunt experience, you learn so much more about Greek mythology and history than you otherwise would. And there are so many ciphers and clues to help you along the way! We learned that our family worked well as a team - our 8 year old was great at puzzles; our 10 year old was great at maps. We needed both to find the professor. Charis was so welcoming and engaged and extremely knowledgeable. She made it so very fun. She also took every precaution to protect us all from covid - masks, frequent hand sanitization for all and disinfection of every bench or stop. Truly incredible!

My friend and I had an amazing time with Charis and we had so much fun! It was the perfect completion for our trip. Even though we saw the city before, Charis showed us so many new places and added more background to all the sights. We are looking forward to the next adventure with Charis 🙂

Thank you so much for an incredible experience Charis! You really brought the Ancient City of Athens to life through your storytelling. We loved being big kids for the day and enjoyed listening to your wealth of knowledge and experience. We'd highly recommend this to adults and kids alike! Ef-Charis-Tó

Charis was amazing. She has a lot of passion about the treasure hunt and the history of Greece. My four daughters (12, 10, 8, 6) all loved it and were very engaged. It was their highlight of our trip to Athens. Charis even brought extra things for the six year old. The tour was like doing an Escape Room while learning about Ancient Greece and the whole area around the Acropolis. We’d do it again.

This was an amazing experience ! We had the time of our lives as three adults, but it would be great for kids as well! Highly recommend it for anyone in Greece! It was something special seeing things that one would not normally see! Tourism from a totally different perspective!

Das war wirklich eine tolle, außergewöhnliche Führung, wärmstens zu empfehlen für alle Altersklassen. Wir hatten einen Riesenspaß, Charis ist wirklich reizend und hat tolle Informationen, die weit über das erwartete hinaus gingen.
