"My three kids, ages 8, 6, and 4, had a fantastic time during their "Playing Goddess Athena" activity. The activities were both engaging and educational. My kids loved it and name it as one of the highlights of our 2+ weeks in Greece. I brought a book and my husband went off to see more historical sites that wouldn't interest the children. Highly recommend."
