Eleni was fantastic. She was welcoming, knowledgeable, funny and best of all, so proud to share stories and information and show off Athens. Make this one of the first things you do when you arrive - you'll learn not only about history, culture and mythology, but also where to visit, what to see and where to have a great meal

Vera is the Greek mother everyone needs. She showed us around her city with so much passion, you couldn’t help but love it.

Susan - 2022

First class tour with Eleni on monday. She is full of facts, stories and information to give an indepth introduction to Athens and its history and culture. She is a native of Athens and is obviously proud of her city. I have done many free walking tours throughout Europe and always find them to be of a very high standard. Elani took this standard to a higher level! Much enjoyed and highly recommend.

Scott - 2022

Jonathan rocked our walking tour yesterday! My wife and I would have never seen the sites that we did nor learned what we learned. Jonathan was entertaining, knowledgeable, and had a good read on what the group wanted to see. I highly recommend starting with this tour when you land in Athens!

Albert - 2022

It was an intensive, comprehensive and in-depth tour with the excellent guide Athena. Recommend everywhere.

efrat - 2022

A recommended and very interesting tour! Gives a lot of information about the city and really helps you find your way around it. A parable between stories, history, customs and humor. The instructor Athena is excellent and pleasant! Full of knowledge. It is really worth taking the tour on the first day in the city. Guaranteed experience!
