I was on a tour with guide Aris and he painted such a good picture of the city. There is no need For any other tour!

This is not your average free city tour. Jonathan was our guide and made the 2.5h walk around Athens unforgettable.

We had a great guide in Stathis. His 3 hour guided walk around the city's highlights was a great way of getting a feel for Athens. Highly recommended. Many thanks.

Our tour guide sounded like an angry preschool teacher who’d had enough of his job and students. His tone was sarcastic, blunt and bored. He glossed over really interesting parts of Greece’s history and was not approachable. The only redeeming feature was the route we took, we got to see parts of the city we wouldn’t likely visit otherwise which was great. I would not recommend this tour.

I have joined many free tours in many cities, although of course I know that it is non-paid one, some really are not organized nicely. This one, otherwise, is arguably the best walking tour I have ever joined.
Stathis, I hope I spell it correctly, is one funny yet informative guide. He explained many things while walking up and down the hilly Athens under the heat of the sun which suddenly also rain.
If you only have one day in Athens, I recommend you to just join this tour. It is worth your sweat (because you don't have to pay so I can't say it is worth every penny). And if you have more time, you can do this tour to begin your journey in Athens, before then exploring more for in depth experience.
