"This tour is not only about the food, it also highlights the history and culture of the Athenians, it’s a great way to enjoy Athens and to learn about the country.  We had a lovely time, couldn't have found these locations even through a map without getting lost. Tania was very helpful as our guide and we are thankful."

"Our guide made the night a special one. He took us to places that would be impossible to find yourself and covered everything from a trendy rooftop bar with views of the Acropolis to an out of the way non touristy Greek taverna with dancing and excellent food. If you want to check out authentic Athenian nightlife, do this trip!’’"

"Amazing day trip to Delphi! The tour goes beyond the usual sightseeing. We spent a great day with Andreas as our guide, he was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful before and after the journey! We highly recommend him and alternative athens!"
