Testimonials

"Tour was awesome! Nice and intimate and Nikos was an awesome guide. So much knowledge about the city and street art and food!! Highly recommended :-)"

Colette

"The whole family agreed- it was the best day we spent in Athens! We loved taking this family day trip to Delphi with our knowledgeable guide and kind driver. Not only were we able to learn about the history of the Delphi site, but also about the smaller towns in the area. Meeting craftspeople in the village really made this tour special. This tour is very well organized to avoid the crowds at the archaeological site, and includes a yummy lunch. If your travel plans include the time to spend a day outside of Athens, I highly recommend taking this tour with Alternative Athens."
