Who we are

Athens Free Tour: We are a group of Athens locals united by our profound experience in Greek travel and tourism with a shared dream and deeply entrenched in the psychology of Greek hospitality and philosophy.
Born in the wake of the challenges post-September 11, 2001, we committed to keeping Athens' welcoming spirit alive. Our goal was to make Athens and its rich culture accessible to everyone for free.

Starting with grassroots efforts, we launched Athens Free Introduction & Orientation Walks, aimed at connecting visitors with the heart of Athens beyond the conventional tourist routes. Our initiative quickly gained momentum, embodying the essence of Greek culture and encouraging sustainable tourism through word-of-mouth.

By 2006/2007 we were further inspired by the global movement of free walking tours, we launched our first website under "Free Tour Athens" in 2006/2007, expanding our reach. By 2015, we evolved into Athens Free Tour - Official, offering separate English and Spanish languages, a milestone that marked our transformation into a celebrated brand in Athens' tourism scene.

Our journey continues as we innovate and lead in offering enriching experiences that showcase the Greek spirit of hospitality and generosity. Our success is driven by the support of visitors who book direct and join us to experience the authentic, original Athens-Free-Tour Official, growing our own history and continuing to welcome all for free to the cradle of Western civilization.
