"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!"

"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!"

"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."
