    Full review with dozens of photos on my blog!! Link in profile :-

    I took the street art tour with Achilles on basically the Greek equivalent of Labor Day. I selfishly chose that day because most shops, museums, and sites were closed, thus limiting my options in Athens. I had been to Athens several times before, and was looking for something a little more off the beaten path. This tour certainly delivered!! I saw the less touristy areas of Gazi and Metaxourgeio with a very tiny group 3 our guide on such a quiet day due to the holiday.

    Achilles is a street artist himself, thus increasing the level of insight and knowledge he brings to the tour. Sure, you will see street art on your own on even the briefest of visits to the Athens center, but learning about the artists and history behind some of the pieces adds a new dimension and appreciation. Like reading the placards alongside museum pieces, a tour guide provides the stories and insight for a fuller understanding. Achilles gave me a great foundation for spotting other pieces on my own......both later that week and again later in the summer upon a return trip.

    Would definitely consider another tour with Alternative Athens in the future!

  • Great tour off the beaten path. Our tour guide, Nicholas, was very knowledgeable and added a lot of Athens insights as well.

  • Excellent tour by with the lovely and very knowledgeable Nikolas! The street art we saw was stunning and gave such a great insight into the work being done in Athens.

  • Excellent guide and tour which was out of the ordinary.

  • This was definitely one of the highlights of my time in Athens!

    I loved that the tour was led by one of Athens' street artists! Nick was a fantastic guide he shared his knowledge about the art pieces and the artists, as well as information about Greece's political climate, history, etc. and how all of that tied in together. The tour was fun, the art was great, and the guide was excellent! My only wish is that it lasted longer! I was getting so much energy from the art and from Nick that I could've easily gone for another few hours! :

    I'll be back for Part II on my next trip to Athens. : Thank you!

  • We highly recommend this tour. The guide was an artist and was very knowledgeable about the artists and their work and the social and cultural ideas expressed. The walk was at a slow pace with a stop for a coffee break. The tour was easy to book on-line, the start point easy to find and good directions back to the hotel when it was over. Great tour for photographers too!

  • This was such a fun tour. Our Tour Guide, Nicholas was very informative about the Athens Street Art and how it has evolved over the years. He was fun to talk to and we really learned a lot about street art. Thanks Nicholas!!

  • This was an amazing street tour that took us through numerous neighborhoods of Athens away from the tourist areas. We are a family of 3 and were the only ones on the tour that day. Our tour guide, Nick, was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about the art and the artists and we thoroughly enjoyed it. If you enjoy walking and getting a feel for the real Athens, than this is a tour for you!

  • Excellent learning experience with articulate guide, Achilles.
