I heartily recommend utilizing Apostolos Greek Tours for the marathon and for the wonderful presentation of Greek history by knowledgeable and caring people.”

Paul, I want you to know that, because of your efforts and attention to the smallest of details, your 11 day tour was one of the highlights of my life….

To Apostolos Greek Tours, Inc., I mainly wanted to see the art, then run, but the relationships were something I didn’t expect. It became the most impactful of the experience. Everyone was so nice, so helpful, so kind. I want to run in other country’s but I only want to tour with you guys! The best time overall in my life!

John and I are still on cloud nine from the entire experience, and most all the kudos go to Apostolos Greek Tours. When one is left ‘wanting more’ (food, camaraderie, historic sites, friendships) that is due to superb organization.

Thank you again for all you did. The entire staff was so kind, knowledgeable, and just darn fun to be with!!

The 2017 Apostolos Greek Tour far exceeded my expectations.

The food was fantastic, the accommodations superb and the itinerary was so thoughtfully planned I felt like a celebrity. No detail was missed.

Each day brought a new adventure…visiting historical sites, islands, museums, dining in Greek restaurants, shopping, and of course running the Athens Marathon.

And did I mention the incredible food! Our knowledgeable guides taught me so much about the culture and history of Greece. I met many new friends as well.

This tour is such a stress free way to travel. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience Greece. Thank you Jean, Paul, Christiana, Maria and Dimitri and to all the wonderful Greek people who made my experience so enjoyable. And did I mention the food was incredible! OPA!

Sincerely, Kathryn, Wisconsin


I cannot begin to express the greatness that is the original Pheidippides route from Marathon to Athens. From the starting line with the Olympic torch to the end at the Panathenaic Stadium and all the jubilant towns in between, this is a marathon you’ll definitely remember. I highly suggest taking a 6 or 12-day tour with the Apostolos Greek Tour group for the ultimate experience. Paul and his gang provide nothing less than VIP service from day 1 and take care of absolutely everything (even a mid-point aid station where they’ll have any personal items you need waiting for you). You want to experience a recovery sprint in the original Olympic stadium of Zeus? They’ll get you there. You want to be treated like a victorious Athenian warrior? Paul and the Greek people will make sure you are. Got a baby you can’t leave behind? They got you covered like family. The experience was so great I might just have to check it off my bucket list twice in the future!
