Testimonials

"Amazing Tour! It exceeded my expectations. Our guide Demetra was wonderful and had an amazing knowledge of history, archaeology and culture; she did a great job highlighting things of importance and interest, while not bogging us down with too much detail. Our tour included a number of cultural stops (wine tasting, icon painting, Greek lesson, tanner and bellmaker visits, stops for local sweets and food, etc.) and every stop added to the richness of our trip. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Alternative Athens and Demetra!!"

"We had a great time on this tour. We loved learning about the history of the Olympic Games, learning different techniques for sporting disciplines, and visiting the Panathenaic Stadium. We also loved getting some gentle exercise, and the kids loved running a relay race! Our guide was excellent, fun, professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour for families with children. Something unique!"
