"My friends and I booked this tour last minute and Alternative Athens was extremely accommodating to fit us in.We had a GREAT experience with Andreas, who walked us through the history of Greek wine and wine making. There was plenty of wine to enjoy and a lot of delicious small plates to snack on at the cozy cafe where this all took place. I never felt like we had a tour guide just spouting off a script about wine, food, and Greece. It was more like hanging out with an old friend who is well-traveled, cultured, and extremely knowledgable. Well worth the cost!"
"Amazing tour! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging and she made sure we had adequate water, restroom stops, time for pictures, and shade. Highly recommend Alternative Athens!"
"Andreas, our guide (excellent English and conversationalist) provided an insiders tour of Athens based on our inputs. We found the sights and history amazing! Each stop had a unique story and wonderful Greek hospitality. A great chance for seeing nightlife and local spots!"
