An amazing start to our stay in Athens. Christina was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She also helped my wife and I take fantastic photos. We loved the intimate feel of this small group tour. In our case, it turned out to be a private one. Christina also pointed out several recommendations for local restaurants and bars. The meeting place was easy to find and our walk had a pleasurable pace. We’re thrilled to have found this tour. Thank you, Christina! Just book it. You won’t be disappointed.

Christina is the best guide! She took around to the city gems with amazing views. A very kind hearted, knowledgeable, professionally friendly guide, I would 150% recommend this tour. Looking back at the small group we had just makes me smile over the experience and impromptu memories. Pascal was also quite helpful with organising and reaching out.

Pascal was a great guide, he was friendly, knowledgeable and informative. We took some great pictures from locations we wouldn’t have found ourselves. Highly recommend this tour.
