Athens is a city with many layers, the deeper you go, the richer the experiences you'll get, and for a first time visitor with limited time, I couldn't have appreciated it the way I did without an insider guide from this company. As a travel advisor, part of my job is to travel and conduct destination research, and I have... More

After some consultation with Athens Insiders, we decided to do the Kids Treasure Hunt, Highlights of Athens and Cape Sounio, and Acropolis Tour. Of these,... More

We booked two tours in Athens (Acropolis beyond and Flavors of Athens) and a 1 night excursion in Delphi. They were very responsive and flexible to anything we might have asked for. All tours were tailored to the interests and pace of our children (age 6 and 8) and our days went on without a glitch. On our excursion we... More

Our travel agent planned this into our trip and I'm glad he did. The 4 hour walking tour took us to local markets and neighborhoods in Athens that locals shop and eat at. It provided a true insiders look of Athens.
