Testimonials

"A very rewarding evening. Our very friendly and informative guide took us to a modern wine bar, where the staff were efficient and the owner extremely knowledgeable about Greek wine. The evening was thoroughly enjoyable as well as being instructive (and most welcome to be outside the normal tourist destinations)."

Andrew W

"We went to beautiful places, historic places, trendy places. It was a great experience. It was much more then just bar hopping. It was having drinks with your Greek friend."

Edward Q

"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!"
