Super Informative and Fun Way to Explore Athens!
Jul 2019
I had a great experience touring Athens with Katarina! She taught me so much about Athens ancient and modern history, Neo-classical architecture in the city, and of course the culture around FOOD in Athens! If you're interested in food, history, and/or architecture, you will love this tour! I especially loved being able to walk through the local markets and tastings lots of delicious foods and drinks along the way. Katarina even picked out some goodies to send me home with — fresh ground Greek coffee, olives, and little desserts! Thanks for the wonderful tour!
