If you're looking for basic grounding in Greek mythology, that's easier done from a book or a class than with a tour -- since they are, after all, myths, there is not a lot of physical evidence, just things like statues, temples, etc. The Acropolis, for example, is mostly ALL about Athena, but you won't find a single statue of Athena remaining there today.
Rest assured that any good guide will be able to give you a bit of a "brush up" on mythology, particularly as it relates to any sites you are seeing.
For a quick "cheat sheet" you might consider printing this off and reading it over before you get to Athens.
Also, keep in mind that you don't need to know everything before you go. Part of the joy of traveling is pursuing some of the things you discovered that really interest you when you get back home.
Hope that helps a bit. I'm afraid I really don't know of any tours that focus specifically on mythology.
