Testimonials

"Truly amazing! Some of the hidden sites have been our favorites while in Athens. The tour allowed us not only to see interesting places and some street art, but also gave us a feel for Greek culture and the lives of the residents of each neighborhood, something we could not get simply by ourselves. Our tour guide was exceptionally kind, and engaging; we felt we were walking with a friend. It was definitely a highlight of our trip, and we are so glad we did it."

"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!!"

"Traveling to Delphi was wonderful. But what made the experience the best part of traveling to Athens were the guides and staff of Alternative Athens-Elisavet and Tania were so great!! . Yes, it's more expensive than maybe some other touring companies, but it's entirely worth it. I hope to travel back to Greece soon and I will certainly be reaching out to Alternative Athens for another tour."
