What you'll do

Immerse yourself in Athens 3.000-year rich history and stroll through the capital with an expert guide. Grab the opportunity to see the city through the eyes of a local and a passionate traveler at that. Avoid the large tour groups with this semi-private tour, only up to 6 people are allowed, so the experience will be personalized. Together we will walk around the city for 2 hours, during which you will discover different spots, have opportunities for great photographs, learn about Athenian history, visit famous landmarks and you will also receive important advice that will save you time, money and will jump-start your journey. Our tour starts at a modern part of the center, the National Library, which is easily accessible via Panepistimio metro station. We will see the Parliament and visit the National Garden, a green oasis in the heart of Athens. We will also encounter the Temple of Zeus, the Roman Agora, walk the pedestrianized streets around Acropolis, visit a majestic viewpoint and get lost in the traditional neighborhood of Plaka. Then we will feel the lively vibes of Monastiraki, where many cafes, restaurants, and shops are located. Our tour will conclude at Thissio, where we will see the Keramikos Cemetery of Ancient Athens. During our journey, you will learn the city’s history and hopefully get a grasp of the little quirks our beautiful capital has.
