Awards & Accolades

Testimonials

"We had one day in Athens while on a cruise. Our guides made history come alive and took us to many hidden treasures that most tourists would not see. Both of them spoke excellent English and were very enthusiastic and friendly. I would highly recommend this small, innovative, private tour company to anyone."

"Amazing Tour! It exceeded my expectations. Our guide Demetra was wonderful and had an amazing knowledge of history, archaeology and culture; she did a great job highlighting things of importance and interest, while not bogging us down with too much detail. Our tour included a number of cultural stops (wine tasting, icon painting, Greek lesson, tanner and bellmaker visits, stops for local sweets and food, etc.) and every stop added to the richness of our trip. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Alternative Athens and Demetra!!"

Elizabeth B, TripAdvisor

"We sampled a delightful array of really good quality food. It was also good to learn about the different neighbourhoods in Athens by our tour guide. We were recommended this tour by family members and definitely will be recommending it to others."
