Testimonials

"Our family of four had a great time with our amazing host Lena, who hosted us in her home and taught us how to make the best Baklava I ever tasted. She was kind and patient with the kids, who enjoyed making the Baklava by themselves with some guidance from our host. While we waited for the Baklava to bake we were provided with a snack of cheese sandwiches and cookies. Also, we sampled 3 local teas and learned about their healing attributes. We really enjoyed our conversation with Lena and hearing the thoughts of local people. Lena provided us with resources for making traditional Greek cuisine that we could use at home. We really had a great experience."

"Traveling to Delphi was wonderful. But what made the experience the best part of traveling to Athens were the guides and staff of Alternative Athens-Elisavet and Tania were so great!! . Yes, it's more expensive than maybe some other touring companies, but it's entirely worth it. I hope to travel back to Greece soon and I will certainly be reaching out to Alternative Athens for another tour."

"This is your chance to experience the spirit of modern Athens. Our eyes opened to this wonderful vibrant city - we loved Athens. Several hours of walking and talking with our new Athenian best friend. Don’t miss this tour!"
