Lena is a native Athenian but her family roots are from both Corfu in the west and Asia Minor in the east, and she draws her inspiration in cooking from both of these traditions.

"Lena and Kristos were fantastic. They fed us lots of food and drinks. The best part, however, was the discussions we had with them. Whenever I travel, I always try to schedule a meal with a local family, or a cooking lesson, and I've never been disappointed. You'll learn so much about the culture! We spent almost four hours in their home and left with a new understanding of the Greek psyche."

Testimonials

"This was great...we saw all kinds of things we never would have stumbled onto on our own. I highly recommend Alternative Athens!"

Julie Matlof K

"Loved it! If you want to see the not-so-usual site of Athens, this tour is totally worth it! It's amazing how much impressive street art there is. And as street art usually can be found in the less touristic, more alternative neighbourhoods of a city, this is your chance to get to know them. Our guide Nikos was super knowledgable and very friendly. Highly recommended!"

RenePfitzner, Zurich, Switzerland - TripAdvisor

"Overall, the tour is a MUST if you enjoy seeing a city at night. The way the locals spend the nights in a city tells you a lot about the city's soul...and seeing it with Antonis is the best way to do it.’’"
