Awards & Accolades

Testimonials

"A different approach of Athens. Nikos was a great guide, the areas we visited are non touristic and that is mostly (with the street art) appreciated. I was alone but mixed to a very nice US family."

asfarclaude

"WOW-So much art to see! Our guide was super knowledgeable and made a point to explain about specific artists, and also to ask us our interpretations. Her love for the art was apparent and her style was calm and warm. I highly recommend the tour. Bring a camera - you will not be walking through the touristy areas for this one."

Janee G

"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."
