"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."
"We took a cooking class with Korina and had a great time. She did a wonderful job working with all of us, including my kids (ages 3, 5, and 8). She was great at involving them in the cooking. After spending a lot of time in the city of Athens it was nice to get out into the suburbs and get a glimpse into what life is like there."
"It was as if we were shown around by a resident who knew everything about the city, its architecture, people and history rather than a tour guide."
