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.

Multiple sites throughout Athens. Time for photos, coffee and a walk to the top of the tallest hill with St George Church at the top. Perfect way to experience Athens with 1-4 people—the tuktuk is 100% electric and go travel through places cars are prohibited. This was recommended by someone we met at a class, and lived up to their description.

Our tour was amazing! Thanasis was our driver. He was entertaining and very knowledgeable. He stopped for a few little extra surprises along the way, which made our tour even more special. We highly recommend taking this tour, it’s a great way to see a lot of Athens and it’s history.

Thanasis was amazing. Even with unforeseen circumstances he made the trip memorable and enjoyable! What an adventure. If you do only one thing in Athens this should be it!

Fantastic way to see Athens, enjoying the open air, and stop every now and then for some photo ops!
