What makes this tour special

In Athens - one of the world’s finest preserved ancient cities - venturing off the tourist drag is near impossible to perfect without a local guide, and worth every moment of serenity.  On your private walking tour of Athens, you will:

Greece’s capital ranks amongst the world’s oldest cities, with history spanning over 3,400 years, and human settlements believed to date back to the 11th millennium BC. Today, the city packs a heady punch of absorbing ancient history and hip, gritty neighbourhoods overlooked by the Acropolis even in Athen’s furthest reaches. 

Enjoy meaningful insights from a local Athenian as you wander the historic centre with a local. As you explore the famed shopping street, Pandrossou street, your guide will give you invaluable recommendations for the artisanal shops which are hidden in plain sight. 

On your walking tour you’ll see several of the major attractions, including: Hadrian’s Library, the Roman Agora, Tower of he Winds, and Lysicrates Monument, all of which your guide will give you the history of. Your guide will take you to one of the oldest bakeries in Athens, where you can enjoy a coffee and a traditional Greek pastry, while jotting down more expert recommendations. Your tour ends in front of the Acropolis, which you are welcome to explore at your own pace.
