Our second tip to Athen's and we couldn't be more satisfied with Anthia and her team! They have clearly worked very hard to select a team of local people to give visitors a real Athen's experience. We were very pleased with meeting Anthia after relaxing in the hotel (of course they had airport pick up arranged) to explore the environment around our hotel in the Plaka (Ava Hotel which I highly recommend as well) and give us our complimentary local phone preprogrammed with all of our guides numbers. We also needed shaving cream and our request was satisfied with a smile. Our itinerary was confirmed and a hard copy provided if I hadn't brought this with me it would have been very convenient indeed!
Day 2 was spent with Marilena on the Acropolis and the surrounding sites as well as the Acropolis Museum which was not open on our last visit. We also enjoyed a very spirited lunch across from the Agora learning more about Greek history, politics and anthropology. Her background as a classically trained archaeologist was amazing to add to our day. As it was Sunday, the area around the Acropolis was filled with artisans selling their wares and she was extremely helpful especially with our 17 year old son to purchase a gift for his girlfriend.
Day 3 we ventured out of the city to visit Mycenae, Epidaurus, and Nafpioli...an awesome day made even better with Hog at the wheel and as our dining companion. The day was very informative with our guide Elias as he is local to the area and is a great orator of the history that needs to be kept alive. He was able to answer every question posed and then some.
Day 4 we have enjoyed our morning shopping before we met up with George in Syntagma for our Gold version Food Tour. An afternoon (6 hours) with a local chef to explore the Central meat, fish, vegetable market was certainly a highlight so far. We always visit local markets (China, Thailand, Spain, France, Morocco) and Athen's did not disappoint! Sampling souvlaki, olive oils, olives, cheese, meats, kebab, cheese and spinach pies and of course having Greek coffee prepared table side by George was super fun. He also assisted me to shop for herbs, olive oil soap and treats to bring home. A very enjoyable day that even our son raved about!
Tomorrow we are off to Delphi which we are sure will be great but we didn't want to wait to write a review. The staff has also been great to secure dining reservations and be very solicitous of ensuring we are pleased...also the treats in the car on our day trip as well as welcome gifts were greatly appreciated.
Athens Insiders is a home run in every respect and trust me when I say I am the finicky traveler!

If you are to discover Athens in a very special and different way you are used to sight-see a city, a treasure hunt experience is super higly recommended.

If you want to complete your experience, whether you are 1, 2 persons or a group, you can always combine the walking and finding your treasure game with other, so-called challenges: a Greek Coffee Tzatziki time, a cooking lesson, Greek Spirits tasting , a Greek olive oil and/or Greek meze !

Thank you to the Athens Insiders team, specially to Ilja and Anthia for all the good tips!

We just returned from touring parts of Greece and Italy with our children. Our experience with Athens Insiders was amazing!

My wife and I have traveled throughout the world and generally would not engage a tour company for ourselves, leaving our schedule free and wandering as we like. However, the purpose of this trip was to show our children important sites that were prominent in their studies of ancient history. For this reason, I wanted to leave little to chance and chose to engage professional guides. The thorough and quick e-mail communication I had from the staff of Athens Insiders throughout my trip preparations was nothing short of stellar!

We chose to accept their offer to schedule airport transfers and a driver for our road trip to the Peloponnese in addition to hiring tour guides for important sites in Athens and elsewhere. I would not change a thing!

We developed a great fondness for our two drivers, Yannis and . . . another Yannis. They served us by making extra stops, such as visiting a grocery on arrival, carrying us to a book store after returning from an outing, as well as giving lots of guide-quality information as we drove around Athens and the Pelponnese. We were thrilled when Yannis accepted our invitation to dinner in Nafplio and guided us through an exploration of various seafood dishes at the fish tavern, then took us to a wonderful Greek doughnut shop for dessert. We were sad to bid them goodbye when we headed to Rome.

The dedicated tour guides were also phenomenal, all of them very professional and engaging our children very well while also bringing history alive for the adults. Tools such as printed pictures, samples of ancient coins, and even iPads with 3D renderings of ancient structures helped us to see past the crumbled marble and partial remains into rich historical communities. The guides were also very responsive to our requests to go slowly for the sake of an older member of our party and to take periodic breaks for snacks or drinks as needed with a family group at any given time of day.

We heartily recommend Anthia and her team at Athens Insiders to anyone planning on visiting Athens or other parts of Greece, and we now hope we will someday return to Greece not just for the sights, but to see our new friends again.

We took the culinary food walk and our guide, George, was the best. Knowledgeable, patient and so professional. A tour, very well planned and amazingly executed. Thank you George and Anthia.

We were lucky enough to have booked Athens Insiders for two tours while on our honeymoon in Athens: The Flavors of Athens and Divine Delphi.

Both were absolutely amazing. Every single detail that we could have thought of was planned out and the food chosen throughout was perfect. We learned so much about the history and culture. It was also great having such knowledgable guides showing us around and giving us a different view of the sites. George was aboslutely amazing and hilarious as well.

We honestly had so much fun and would/have been recommending this to all of our friends. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to do more trips with the team. Keep up the great work Athens Insiders, we had no complaints!
