"I had done the ruins, statues and historical sights. I wanted something modern and eclectic and I found it on a Street Art Tour offered by Alternative Athens. Our guide Nikos is an artist and offered so much insight into the artists and street art!"

We learned an incredible amount in that four hours, and for most visitors, there would be no other way to get this kind of local knowledge."
