Testimonials

"I really enjoyed this tour through Athens. Our guide was super friendly and knew a lot of background information of all the street art we saw. It was a great addition to my trip and something very different after a few days of temples and history"

Iris S-Rotterdam

"A great way to start off your visit, get your bearings and immerse yourself with a local guide. This small group tour was an in-depth lesson in the history, food, architecture, culture and politics of Greece and Athens through the lens of distinct, beautiful and funky neighborhoods. Andreas, our guide, was top notch!"

"Great tour, great food! Our guide Laura showed us the best places where you can find traditional Greek food. At every stop she told us about the history of the food and everything we ate was delicious! Thank you!"
