Fantastic personalised walking tour of Athens
Mar 2020
We booked this tour as we wanted an in-depth tour about Greek mythology. Our tour guide Ioannis was very informative, funny and approachable. Our tour was tailored to our interests and requests. It was great to have a one-on-one tour around the historic city. Ioannis also gave us restaurant recommendations as we walked round the different districts.
This was a great way to explore Athens and was the best tour we did on our holiday. We would highly recommend this tour, thank you Ioannis!

A must if you are in Athens
Feb 2020
This was one of the best ways to explore the city of Athens! looking at the monuments and learning about their details was amazing, and understanding the reasoning behind the mythology while looking at the origins was eye-opening

Ioannis could have made this entire tour just sitting down at a cafe and telling me the amazing stories that he has and I would have been happy! but his approach to exploring the city made this a MUST have experience if you spend any time in Athens.

Great tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
What a great experience. We decided to do this tour on our last day in
Athens as we wanted a more in-depth explanation on Mythology and the
history of Greece. Ioannis realised we had been in Athens for a week
already so he changed the Itinerary to suit us and to show us some
places that we hadn't explored. It was a rainy day and it was a public
holiday but Ioannis made sure there was plenty to see and talk about.
Ioannis is very kind, patient and funny and we would recommend anyone
wanting a few hours of history and be taken to a few hidden local
areas and bars to contact him for a tour! Definitely do this in your
first couple of days in Athens, however, it was still great and he
gave us a really good end to our trip. Thanks so much Ioannis! Jarrad
and Hannah (Australia/Singapore).

Great tour of Athens
Jan 2020 • Couples
5 star review on our tripadvisor page;

We really enjoyed our tour of Athens with Adriani. Adriani knows the
city so well: she took us to all sorts of places that we would never
find on our own, and she told us all about the history of the city.
Highly recommended! And we totally loved the hot chocolate stop -
simply the best hot chocolate we have ever had!

Highly recommend this walking tour with Leonie
Dec 2019
My walking tour of Athens with Leonie was absolutely phenomenal! In
just 3 short hours, I saw all the key sites to visit in Athens and
felt like I truly had a handle on the city- not only on the 'touristy'
parts, but also walking through the back streets and finding hidden
gems made me feel like I could be a local myself. Leonie was
intelligent, personable, laid back and thorough. I felt like I
definitely was able to see everything I should see and learn
everything I should learn both about ancient and more modern Greece.
The recommendations she offered for the rest of my time in Athens were
incredible as well and made for a wonderful first trip to Athens! I
would highly recommend this walking tour with Leonie!

Fun tour in challenging circumstances
Dec 2019
My family and I really enjoyed our tour with Lila. She was very
friendly and extremely flexible in some challenging circumstances. She
was able to adjust the tour to meet our needs. Her stories were
interesting and she interacted very well with both of my daughters,
one of whom was excited about Greek mythology, but the other, not so
much.

Great tour and highly recommended..
Dec 2019 • Family
It was a very informative and well spent walking tour with Dimitrios
on a Xmas morning. He was friendly, very knowledgeable and generous
with the sharing... the legends, history and legacies of the ancient
Greeks and their Gods were brought to life!! We've learnt a lot during
the walking tour... definitely a recommended activity and good value
for money... expect some honest and open discourse about how ancient
greeks relate to the modern world issues too... if one has the
appetite for it!

We did this tour with Troas on our last day. This was the best - saw
places you would never see or find - had a lot of discussion and
chatting while learning. Troas was superb. Highly recommend for anyone
visiting Athens
