    Very professionally conducted and the tour guide Vicky was amazing! We were able to create our own tour to fit our schedule and preferences which was very appreciated! The level of service all the way from the first contact to the follow up was great. I highly recommend Athens Walking Tours for any group visiting Athens!

    We had an excellent experience on our tour for four people. Our guide, Magda, was amazingly knowledgeable about Greek history and mythology. Our pace was perfect with a couple of enjoyable stops for coffee. Magda was more than accommodating about what we wanted to see and went the extra mile - literally - to ensure we got to our restaurant in the Plaka (not easy on your own!) We highly recommend Magda and Athens Walking Tours!

    I cannot recommend Athens Walking Tours more highly!! They have run tours for us for two years and both years have been fantastic.. the groups have always been so positive and complimentary about the experience. The guides are so knowledgeable and know how to make the tour so interesting, even when it's unbearable heat! I recommend them for big group tours!!

    Marta was fantastic at bringing ancient Athens to life for us! We all learned so much from her! Definitely recommend!

    Our tour was very organised and very informative. Coming from India, we always face one problem in all guided tours, understanding the peculiar accent of English. With our guide Angela, it was exactly opposite, she was fully understandable and crystal clear in whatever she told. Very knowledgeable and with her little sense of humour she made the tour pretty engaging. So, my 5 stars go to her and the organisation.

    We had the most amazing experince with Despina as she guided and explained many things we didn't know about the history of Athens and it's amazing historic landmarks. It was worth every moment we spent just admiring how wonderful the city is.

    We booked this tour from the UK and we have to say it was worth every penny. Our tour guide Kostas was a wealth of knowledge. He took his time to explain and answer all our questions. My daughter studied greek classics and it was lovely watching him excitedly explaining all about the sights to her. We could not recommend him enough.

    We had such a great time and loved the factoids. The Acropolis is unbelievable. Truly amazing sites and Vicki was awesome.

    We booked this tour from the UK and we were not disappointed. Our guide Cese was beyond amazing. She is a qualified in her field and was able to bring to life the sights of Athens. The orange cake at the end…. Yummy

    Anne took us to see a variety of places in Athens. As it was a private tour we could focus on sites that were more interesting to us. Anne shared information about why the column of the Temple of Zeus fell over and why it was not going to be restored to its upright position. Details like this are not available at the sites and in fact there is minimal information at each site and in the museum. Anne connected things we saw in the museum to stories she had shared at the Acropolis. I am not very knowledgeable about Greek history, my son is very fascinated by Greek mythology and my husband is incredibly intellectual. We all walked away from our tour with a deeper understanding and a smile on our faces. Fantastic experience and one we would highly recommend.
