Testimonials

"We had a great 2 hours with our tour guide, Tonia. She was very informative about the Olympic History in Greece and put us through our paces in the javelin throw, discus, long jump and shot put. We then made our way to the Olympic Stadium where we learned more about it's history and was able to run a lap. Highly recommend this tour for an out of the ordinary experience."

"We had one day in Athens while on a cruise. Our guides made history come alive and took us to many hidden treasures that most tourists would not see. Both of them spoke excellent English and were very enthusiastic and friendly. I would highly recommend this small, innovative, private tour company to anyone."

Leslev C

"We had an amazing tour through the sites with stories about the gods and goddesses with our kiddos, ages 5 and 9. I highly recommend Alternative Athens! Not only did we have a great guide, but we were also greeted and treated to excellent customer service. This tour was a highlight of our trip!"
