    Our tour got off to a bit of a rough start, as our guide arrived a few minutes late and admitted hed been out partying the night before later he mentioned he also does a nightlife tour, so maybe these were related??. But as in the movie My Life in Ruins, there is always time for a coffee he had a to-go coffee even though he was late. My husband and I exchanged glances and perhaps a smirk, and set off on our tour we were the only ones on this day. We soon warmed up to our guide he was very knowledgeable and could answer anything we asked. Even though we have been to Athens numerous times, we still saw and learned many new things. It was such a lovely walk in the spring with the wildflowers, but a warning: it would be brutally hot in summer!!

    Fabulous tour. It was incredibly interesting and enjoyable. Guide Dionysus was very knowledgable and pleasant. I'd recommend this tour highly.

    Wonderful walking tour of Athens. We visited major sites as well as beautiful hidden neighborhoods that we would not have otherwise seen.

    Eleni is an excellent tour leader, with stacks of information not just on the ancient history and culture of Athens, but its story and cultural evolution throughout the centuries to the present day. We loved the way she linked past and present, with stories and synthesis round every corner. Knowing there were young teenagers with us, she had bought some koulouri for us, and she tried to make the trip interesting for them as well. Thank you for an excellent tour.
