Athens Private Tour: Marathon Half Day Tour

Athens Private Tour: Marathon Half Day Tour


  • Enjoy beautiful views of the Marathon Lake and surroundings.
  • Learn the history of the battle of Marathon.
  • Follow the route of the original marathon race.



Start your day with a pickup from your centrally located Athens hotel.

As you relax in your air-conditioned car or mini van. The beauty of having a private guide is that any commentary is tailored to your interests.

Your first stop is the Marathon Tomb. Also known as the Tomb of the Athenians, the burial mound is situated on the Athens-Marathon road, roughly 2.5 miles (4 km) before the town of Marathon, and is the final resting place of 192 soldiers who died in the Battle of Marathon. Marathon is an alternative tour for those wanted to visit something different in the Attica area.

Next, return to your private car and enjoy a short drive to Lake Marathon, a reservoir surrounded by verdant natural beauty. Here, perhaps refresh with a drink and a snack at the cafe (own expense) and stroll leisurely toward Marathon Dam. Entirely paneled in pristine white marble, it is the world’s only marble dam. After your exploration, return to Athens in your private vehicle.
