Testimonials

"Fantastic Night! We told our guide what kind of drinks we liked and the type of atmosphere that makes us the most comfortable and she did amazing job finding bars to fit us best. If we ever make it back to Greece, I would definitely do this tour again!"

"We had the most amazing day in Hydra! Everything was absolutely perfect. It was so well organized and we did so much in just one day. Being the trip planner and organizer for my family it was so nice to just relax and let Alternative Athens be in charge of all the details and timing. Our guide was so sweet and had such a lovely personality. My kids all adored her and my youngest especially was so sad to leave her."

"It’s not only ancient sites that are interesting to see in Athens! Our terrific and fun guide took us through the neighborhoods that are the social and political heart of contemporary Athens. Well worth it and highly recommended!"
