About
Athens came together through a mixture of cultures across the centuries, and there’s still a lot of that history around, in the food as well as in the neighborhoods. This 5-hour, guided food and walking tour lets you and your small group see and taste your way through the complex heritage that created contemporary Greek culture and cuisine. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included for city center hotels only.

Andreas is a young intellectual who knows a real different Athens.
The one that’s hides in the love rage happiness and sorrow of its people. A Walk with him between the history pages and among the flavour of the city is an amazing emotional tour of Athens

We arrived late and Alternative kindly rescheduled us for later in the day. I thought we were to meet somewhere and walked there only to find Andreas was waiting for us at the hotel. He waited patiently for us than took us a fantastic tour through the heart of Athens.

Thanks to the guide Andreas, i understand about Athens’s food culture, history, social issues and some political problems in an afternoon.

Unlike the other tour bringing you to a famous spot for checking in on instagram, Alternative Athens provided me insights into different people’s lives in athens. If you want to go local, go with them.

We did two private tours with them - LGBT nightlife and Food and Streets. Both were amazing. Fantastic guides, attentive to details, flexible based on personal requests. If you want to experience more than the prototypical Acropolis tour, I highly recommend Alternative Athens.

Hello, Thank you for taking time to review our LGBT NIGHTLIFE TOUR and our DELICIOUS ATHENS FOOD TOUR. We are excited that you had an AMAZING time with us and our FANTASTIC GUIDES as you call them. We are glad you experience something authentic and away from the touristy stuff and had a genuine Greek flavor in your memories in our city. Looking forward to see you again in one or more of our alternative tours we offer in Athens and beyond! Best wishes, Phaedra
