My wife and I went on the Twilight Tour with Maeva, and could not have been happier with our experience. Maeva was a terrific tour guide, and you could tell that she really loves her city.

Spent the day with Nikoleta exploring laneways, markets and streets of Athens. It was a full day tour with plenty of stops. Nikoleta went out of her way to accommodate my preferences and was a fun companion. If you are travelling alone Urban Adventures is a great company with whom to spend some time exploring Athens.

Had the 'best' tour with Nikoleta yesterday! She was informative and really fun to tour with! The food and coffee was soo good and she really discussed the Athens and Greek culture! I cannot recommend this tour enough as I have been travelling Europe for months and have had so many great tours but this one was the best!

We only had 3 days in Athens and this tour was the highlight of our 12 day vacation through Europe. This tour really gives you a feeling of true Greek culture. What we saw, we would never have been able to navigate on our own. Our tour guide, Nicoleta, was very bubbly, warm and it felt like we were friends... More

This was a lovely relaxed tour which showed us places off the beaten/tourist track. We loved our guide Nikoleta, it was like strolling along with a friend; a very knowledgeable one. She was a delight and took us to her favorite ice cream shop where was to die for. Thank you Nikoleta for a great experience and your friendship. No... More

We loved our time today with Nikoleta on the "Taste of Athens" food tour. She was friendly, with a bubbly personality and a great knowledge of Athens. She also loves cooking and was able to speak from her own extensive experience. She took us to markets, shops and excellent food and coffee places we would never have known about or... More

I only spent a weekend in Athens and thought it best to maximise my time and book onto the Twilight tour hosted by Urban Adventures. It was probably the best decision I ever made. Luckily (for me) the couples who were also booked in had to cancel due to flight delays, which meant I had a one on one tour... More

I highly recommend this Photography Tour for those with little or no knowledge of taking photos. Firstly on arrival to Athens Port both Nikolete and her taxi driver were awaiting myself and my Partners arrival with clearly marked name signs so there was no missing us! It was excellent value for money as there was only the two of us... More

We really enjoyed our relaxing and informative food tour with Nikoleta. She is a super personality and was totally accommodating when we wanted to browse in stores along the way to buy soap, pasta and olives.

I was lucky enough to be the only group member in my September 10, 2016 walking tour with Nicoletta. I booked the tour through Intrepid's Urban Adventures program, as I was meeting up with an Intreprid Small Group Tour (Athens to Santorini) that evening. Nicoletta was a fabulous guide - her knowledge of the history, culture and layout of Athens... More

Staying in Exarchia

Neighbourhood Profile
Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
