This was a fabulous tour, far surpassing expectations. Our guide Danae took us through the history of democratic thinking, opening our eyes to the changes and learnings over time. She wove in the mythology of Athens and Greece and the founding of the Acropolis in a highly interactive discussion while viewing the amazing structures and art works that are part of the site. I would highly recommend this tour.

We had an amazing time on the mythology tour with our wonderful guide, Demeter. It was a tour with a little bit of a difference, there were lots of historical facts and information but these were interwoven with all of the fantastic tales from Greek mythology. It was especially fun for my 10 year old daughter, who is a devotee of the ancient Greek myths (thanks to the Percy Jackson books!) and she was delighted to have a guide named after a goddess 😊 Demeter was an excellent guide - friendly, knowledgeable, good fun, she really made the tour for us 👌🏻 I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour group, and this specific tour for anyone with kids 💯

The tour guide was great and incredibly knowledgeable. Unfortunately the company was highly unorganised and the meeting point was a disaster with lots of people standing around having no idea what was going on. There were also no headsets for the tour guides during the tours, which made it incredibly hard to hear. I would recommend booking with another company.

We did the street art tour with Niko who was brilliant and full of interesting information about the city and the stories behind the art. I'd really recommend this tour - it gives you a sense of life in Athens beyond the typical tourist routes around Ancient Athens (although interestingly there was some of that on the tour too!)

Elena guided us through an amazing tasting experience in Athens! We were a small group of 5 people and the experience was delicious and instructive for all of us. My kids (9 and 6) said it was the best part of their stay in Athens. Highly recommended!

Amazing tour. Saw parts of Athens we never would have seen without a tour. Our tour guide Elena was fantastic, encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of each area and filled in all local information as well. Great tour.

We had a fantastic time on the street art tour of Athens! Our guide, Nikos, an artist himself, was so knowledgeable on the art we were looking at, as well as the history of the architecture and the neighborhoods we were in. It was like hanging out for a few hours with a local friend. It was a great way to see a different side of Athens, not just the ancient one! We absolutely recommend this tour! It was definitely a highlight of our Athens stay.
