        Private Tour booked via Greece insider with Athens insider
        This was part of our tour which Greece Insider, planned whole tour of Greece which included Santorini, Create and Athens area. We were lucky to have SBC's Yanus, The Hog, as our private driver. He had previously taken us to Delphi for the Delphi tour. If you have an opportunity asked for Yanus as your driver. We started out and first stop as Corinth canal which we saw, next stop was Mycenae with George, our guide. George was very informative in laying out history, philosophy and conjecture fo the area - he may or may not be to your appreciation. Mycenae, itself is more ruins than rebuilt area. Its was prominent in Greek history from 1600-1300 BC afterwhich there was a decline. The famous Lion Gate at Mycenae site as well as the proposed Agamenon tomb are two of the visited sites. Unfortunately the tomb was vandalized long time ago so they cannot state it was Agamenon or not. The Mycenae "Acropolis" site was also destroyed so much of the buildings are only scattered ruins. The museum itself has some artifacts and replicas - one being the "Agamenon" gold mask - original is in Athens. The Corinth canal is marvel of engineering 1860's. Yanus, also stopped at THE SILO which is an artist studio and shop with many interesting items from Icons, to Greek pottery, Jewelry, and food. The prices vary from expensive - Icons are very good to Authentic Reproduction of pottery. Last stop was winery at which we tasted wine and had lunch.

        A Great Sunday tour with Stevie, She had been guide for 20 years well worth the expense
        Greek Insider, our travel agent contract with Athens Insider for a private tour of the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum. We were met 8:30 at Hotel Achilleas which is about 15 minute walk to Acropolis. We arrived at Acropolis and Stevie, our tour guide, lead us into the site. We were there in March so the site was not busy. Since Stevie had everything in order, we just started the tour. There are two ways to get to the top, one is straight up while other, which we took, meanders through several ancient ruins such as Dionysus Theatre, Stolla, Odeon of Herodus Atticus, and finally through the Propylaea, major gateway to the Acropolis. Since it was Easter Lent week for Greek Orthodox and Spring break for other countries, there were student groups. Therefore Stevie took our time for us to enjoy and explain the sites. She even took some great photos of us during trip. After Acropolis, we went to Acropolis museum and she explained many of the artifacts and recreations which were there. Her knowledge was astounding and well worth the cost. There were only two of us with Stevie so we got to ask questions which we wanted to know as well as hear her answers, explanations easily.

        Family visit to Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center
        In Athens, Greece, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is a shining example of cultural enrichment, providing a wide range of activities for both visitors and families. Our family is dedicated to encouraging cultural interaction, and we have found the SNFCC to be a great resource for our neighbourhood. There is something for everyone at the SNFCC, from its breathtaking architecture to its wide range of programming. The large green area that envelops the centre offers a pleasant diversion from the busy metropolis, ideal for outdoor events like picnics. Our comprehension of literature, music, and the arts is enhanced by the cultural events held at the centre, which include educational workshops, concerts, and exhibitions. Furthermore, the SNFCC's dedication to accessibility guarantees that everyone in the community, regardless of background or socioeconomic status, can participate in cultural experiences. Families who might not otherwise be able to afford such opportunities can access cultural enrichment absolutely for free. We considered the SNFCC to be the high point of our trip as tourists in Athens. Its proximity to other important sites makes it an easy stop for travellers, and its coastal location affords stunning views of the ocean. The centre's cultural offerings improve our overall perception of Athens as a cultural destination by offering a distinctive look into Greek art and heritage.

        Athens Walking Food Tour
        Klea was the most amazing knowledge guide! We were able to experience so many different offerings even on a Sunday in Athens. From our beginning at a local coffee shop with coffee and sweet treats to our conclusion at a neighborhood wine and cheese shop we learned more and more at every stop about what to shop for and how to order the perfect Authentic Greek food and drinks. We so enjoyed our guide Klea’s stories and humor! Four hours flew by! I would highly suggest a tour! Five Stars!!!

        Brilliant tour !!
        It was certainly dramatic given the rain on Wednesday/ Thursday but Komissa was a complete professional. We were very grateful to her for going the extra mile for us, her knowledge and passion for Greece, and it’s history was evident. We loved her ability to share this with us. The tour was brilliant.

        Exceptional
        Thanks to our incredibly knowledgeable guide Stelios, we immersed ourselves in a series of culinary experiences, set throughout Athens as a backdrop, which proved to be absolutely delightful. This provided us with various opportunities to experience the city in the yummiest of ways! Learning not just about architecture, but about the people, their food and customs. Thanks team!

        Amazing Greek food tour
        Having just done a group tour in Reykjavik that was excellent, I was prepared to be underwhelmed with this one but to my surprise, it was amazing! Mostly because our guide Era was wonderful. She was personable and very knowledgeable about the area and the food. She easily answered all of our questions and led us to several small, family-owned shops with different types of food. She also took us to the local market to see how most local folks got their groceries. We sampled lots of different food, learned about the various types of olive oil, and traveled down many beautiful small walkways among other things. As an added bonus her English was very clear and easy to understand. Just be ready to walk on cobblestones and climb steps.

        Perfect Introduction to Athens
        Yiannis our guide was fabulous. Felt like we were walking with friend showing us his home town. Perfect mix of history, culture and of course food. Highly recommend. This was a flawless company to work with and I was very nervous as I planned the trip last minute. We were tow people, Tow to three is a good number for the tour. Lots of walking which for us was great. We worked off some of the delicious food.

        Great activity for first day in Greece!
        Vicky took us (mom/18 yo daughter) on a walking food tasting tour of Athens. It was a great first introduction to Greece at the beginning of our 2 week trip. Some of the best food we had the entire trips was on the tour with Vicky. We combined our food tasting tour with a tour of the Acropolis and she knew a lot about history, mythology, and travel throughout Greece as well. Vicky provided us with a lot of tips that were helpful throughout the rest of our trip. Hanging out with Vicky in Athens was one of the highlights of our trip.

        Best guide ever!
        Giota provided my family the best tour of the Acropolis and a food tour. She made Greek history come alive to even those in the family that don’t love history :). She was a pleasure to spend the day with and we felt like we had a new family member! And i think she acquired a new little brother :) Thank you so much Giota!!

        We really enjoyed this tour and felt like we got to see most of the top sights in Athens. Our guide, Valia, was fun and informative. Her energy made the tour particularly great.

        A wonderful tour of the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum
        Our family (two adults, two teens and one grandparent) had a fantastic tour with Antigone. She met us at our hotel and walked us to the Acropolis. The tour was perfectly paced for our family. Antigone was knowledgeable and thoughtful. We would highly recommend this tour.

        Wonderful customized tour
        Athens Insiders was wonderful to work with. They customized what we wanted to do and made suggestions on how to best use our time. We were traveling with our 1 year old, so needed flexibility in our schedule to have downtime in the middle of the day. They accommodated everything we needed, including having our driver pick us up early from one site when the baby melted down. Our guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and made our tour much more interesting than going alone. I would definitely use Athens Insiders again and highly recommend.

      When you are back home after a holiday full of new experiences - people, places food, music - there are always one or two of those experiences that stand out in your memory. Our day with Ioannis Ninos, exploring the Athens food scene, was one of those experiences. He was an excellent guide - knowledgeable and fun to be with - and took us to places we would have never found on our own in the short time we spent in Athens. We spent the day eating and drinking and talking about our different cultures: ours Caribbean, his Greek, and the time passed all to quickly. Thank you Ioannis for a perfect day !

      My wife and I went on this tour with Yannis and it was phenomenal. All of the stops and recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed everything from the food, the sights seen, and the company. It felt more like spending time with a friend than a food tour. He was very knowledgeable about both the history and the food. We wish we would have done this tour the first day we were here.
      I recommend this tour to everyone. I wish I could go on it again.

      Our first full day in Greece - jet-lagged, hot, and exhausted - we opted for a private food tour in Athens. In addition to the aforementioned conditions, I should note that the only thing I like less than writing reviews (I made an account for this) is taking guided tours. Then, I met Yannis Ninos.

      Yannis is a chef and food/culture enthusiast, and I'll start with the obvious. The tour itself was engaging on every level - he showed us the cultural centers, art, and markets of the city between stops on our caloric scavenger hunt. The food was perfect - everything from quiet, intimate coffee shops and fresh fruit to punch-you-in-the-palate cured meats and cheeses. You'll get the Greek classics and more - if you like to eat (a lot), you won't be disappointed in the variety or quality of the foods and establishments explored. I'd describe further, but a lot of the fun was being surprised along the way.

      But, for us, Yannis made the tour. He took us through Athens in the way that someone welcomes you into their home. He was welcoming and curious, and genuinely interested in getting to know us, while also ensuring the tour aligned with our preferences. He wove in and out of conversation to point out interesting parts of the city, his favorite local graffiti, and other small points that we never would have picked up on. He is the type of person you want to get a coffee with (which luckily, we did), and his knowledge of and care for Athens and Greece will shine through regardless of the stops along the way. He is the sort of person that disarms you, makes you feel like a friend, and allows you to truly engage with and enjoy your surroundings. Honestly, he could have taken us to MacDonald's and Starbucks, and I still would have been thankful for the time we spent with him. Yannis will make your trip better.

      We were sad to say goodbye, and maybe a little too aggressively got him to promise he'll take a trip of his own on the U.S. east coast and let us return the favor. We can only hope it works out.

      Efcharistó, Yannis!

      After an INCREDIBLE four-hour food tour, the only thing i can say for sure is that Yannis Ninos is the reason for you to have a food tour in the center of Athens! Exploring Athens and tasting unbelievable local delicacies with Chef Yannis was the highlight of our vacations in Greece. It was by far an experience beyond expectations! This guy should really have his own tv show! Thank you Yannis!

      I had a wonderful time exploring Athens food with Panos - we spent about 4 hours wandering through different neighborhoods and sampling many different types of Greek and Middle Eastern food. Everything was delicious, and he tailored the tour based on what I was interested in doing/ experiencing. Very friendly, knowledgeable guide with perfect English- could not recommend him more! I’ve already told several others who are going to Athens about this tour. Thank you again, Panos!

      Our guide, George Madianos, was fantastic. We learned a ton and enjoyed a lot of great food and drink. Here's a perfect day in Athens: do an Acropolis tour in the morning; then do the food tour with George right afterwards. Best way to experience everything Athens has to offer.
