Testimonials

"Taking the walking and food tour with Alternative Athens was one of the highlights of a 3 day tour of Athens. It was the best introduction to the city and local neighborhoods. We had tastings of wine, cheese, meze, coffee, and chocolate in a variety of local restaurants and stores that we would not have found on our own. At each stop we were treated as VIPs. We highly recommend this tour to people who want to experience life in Athens beyond the tourist spots."

"We booked the Baklava class and our host was gracious and welcoming. This was an excellent way to cook in a home with a native Athenian. The sweets were phenomenal: more variety than we expected. Strongly recommend for a relaxing evening with or without children."

"We had a blast with Andreas! He was incredibly friendly, insightful, outgoing, and answered our tons of questions that came up about what life is like in Athens today. He truly made you feel like a friend."
