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

"This tour was outstanding! Our guide, Andreas, showed us a variety of bars that we would never have found on our own. He was very open to any kinds of questions and made the tour interesting and informative at the same time. I would definitely recommend taking this tour and discovering the nightlife of Athens. The city and people have an incredible and positive energy that is very unique and worth seeing."

"Alternative Athens does it right! There is no better way to get a feel and taste of authentic Athens than accompanying Zoe on a delightful tour of off-the-beaten path food delights. We discovered amazing side streets while learning about the history, fine art and traditions of wonderful treats. This was an amazing way to begin our Athens adventure. Zoe brought the heart and soul of Athens to a never to be forgotten culinary stroll."
