Street culture & food discover hidden gems
Jul. 2021 • Solo
That's an amazing experience you get in this tour. You're going to discover a hidden part of the city. During the tour you're going to taste delicacies and drink the real Greek gems. The guide, Sofia really knows about all and willing to answer all questions you have. I tried to put some words, but they're not enough to describe how I was grateful to book this tour. It's a must do tour and you're going to enjoy every moment and make memories.

Your words are enough, dear guest, and the sense of enjoyment you transmit with your warm review fills us with joy! Thank you for painting your experience in such bright colors! All our guides are absolutely amazing, and of course Sofia is no exception. Reading your touching feedback makes us feel that we have accomplished something really great; we have contributed in taking a memorable part of Greece back home with you, and we could not ask for anything more. We hope we can welcome you back to Athens very soon, and help you make even lovelier memories!

Highlight of our time in Athens!
Jun. 2021
Sophia is a wonderful guide! We ended up having a private tour with her and she was fantastic - this tour was the highlight of our time in Athens. We enjoyed getting to go off the beaten path to see where regular Athenians like to hang out and Sophia gave us a good sense of day-to-day life. The neighborhoods we visited were vibrant and fascinating.

As for the food, it was great! We’re picky eaters, but we love Greek food, so this is the first food tour we’ve ever done. While things may change in the future, we had stops featuring bougatsa (sweet custard in phyllo), souvlaki (we had chicken, I think pork was the other option) and fries and bread, a cheese/dried fruit/cracker plate and wine, and dolmades (veggie-friendly, I think) and a Cretan salad of rusk (super dry bread), olive oil, feta, tomatoes, and greens. We ended the evening with a shot of the local cure-all mastic or mastiha, which has an interesting flavor and, as we discovered later in the week, makes for a nice ice cream, too! Water was included everywhere, which was a must as it was SUPER hot and humid while we were in Athens (and it’s good water, perfectly safe to drink). All in all, this was a wonderful tour and Sophia was super informative, warm, and a great ambassador for Athens. Next time we’re in town, we’ll take her cooking class. Until then, I'll be dreaming of that souvlaki. Thank you, Sophia!

It is our turn to say thank you so much, for this truly wonderful review. First of all, saying that your food tour was the highlight of your time in Athens, fills us with joy and satisfaction. We love it that you include all the highlights and fun details of your experience in such a vivid manner. Your narration is like a palette of colorful images, smells and tastes. We are very happy you enjoyed the local delicacies and the drinks you tasted, but above all we love the fact that you enjoyed the whole experience with your guide, Sophia, so much. Proclaiming her 'a great ambassador for Athens' will make her super happy, as it is perhaps the greatest compliment for a tour guide. All our guides deserve this compliment, though, as they are exceptional, each and every one of them. Thank you once again, we appreciate the amazing feedback, and please hurry back soon, as we have even more fun and interesting experiences for you!

Sophia was great!
Jun. 2021
My family of five thoroughly enjoyed this off-the-beaten-path tour of some of the lesser known areas of Athens. Sophia was our guide and did a wonderful job. She was fun, friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. To be honest, outside of the Acropolis and Plaka there aren't a lot of big ticket sightseeing items in Athens, but Sophia managed to make every little detail interesting. We enjoyed delicious food and wine. I would definitely recommend this trip if you want to see another part of Athens that isn't normally explored by tourists.

We greatly appreciate your kind review and top rating. Details do count, don't they? And our tour guides are not only fantastic professionals, but also perfectionists who love telling fascinating stories, sharing their passion and getting their guests engaged in what really excites them. We are very happy that Sophia apparently managed that. Additionally, it is very rewarding for us that you enjoyed the culinary part of your tour. We absolutely adore introducing Greek culinary habits to other cultures through our food tours. Thank you so much for sharing this positive experience with us, and for recommending it. We would love to see you coming back again for more fun activities!

Don’t miss this special tour!
Sophia was an amazing guide! She has such positive energy and is incredibly knowledgeable about the Kerameikos area. This is a place where she spends much of her social time and has deep community connections. We tasted so many delicious Greek dishes and beverages and learned about the vibrant arts scene. I arrived in Athens before most of my sailing group, and Sophia gave me stellar recommendations of places to take people. They were impressed and want to meet her! FYI Sophia also teaches cooking classes, which I’ll check out the next time I’m in town. :)

We had a great time with our guide, Sophia! She was very friendly and fun. During the tour, we visited several local places where we sampled delicious food, while also learning more about day-to-day life in the city and getting to chat with Sophia. The tour gave us a chance to explore a different part of the city away from the tourists. We took the tour on our final night in Athens and it was a fantastic way to end our trip!

Do not miss this amazing and authentic opportunity!
Jun. 2021 • Friends
Sophia was absolutely amazing! Not only did she give such an amazing tour but she took great care of us and spoiled us with knowledge of Athens! The food was AMAZING and authentic and to top it off we got to explore a few towns that allowed us to really understand the culture of locals and Athens outside all the touristy parts! She was so passionate about her city - you could really tell she was in love with Athens and her kindness was contagious - I truly left wanting to be a better person like Sophia! To top it off she gave us great recommendations for where to go on a few of the islands and I’m very fortunate to still be in touch with her :) thank you Sophia we all adored you!

We had a fantastic street art and street food tour with Athens Walking Tours. We explored a part of Athens we would never have seen otherwise and we thoroughly enjoyed Sophia’s kind and cheerful guidance. She is a wealth of knowledge on all things Athens and a lot of fun to be around. All the foods and drinks on our stops were delicious, many of them ranking amongst the very best of what we’ve had on our trip. Book this tour if you want to see a young, hip, artsy side of Athens.

A side note in case you’re wandering about what this tour is like during corona: we felt completely safe and at ease. Sophia wore a mask and had anti-bacterial wipes with her. Granted, our tour ended up being a private one because we were the only ones who booked, but all the stops we made were not that busy and I honestly can’t remember a place where social distancing was compromised.

Wow! What a wonderful review!! We are very happy that you enjoyed your tour in the most "artsy" and urban part of the city! Sofia loves sharing her stories and her experience of how it is like to live and blossom in a city like Athens that is full of contrasts and secret charming corners. And yes, health is always our priority and that's why we keep our groups small, we use face masks and we always keep the social distance rules through these times! Enjoy your stay in Athens and we hope to see you again soon!

Awesome tour!
Sep. 2019 • Couples
We had a blast on this tour. It was located in a neighborhood that is not tourist-y at all, so we got to explore a side of the city that we otherwise would have missed. Our guide, Georgia, was sooo energetic and friendly, and made us feel welcome in her city. I also want to mention that we felt completely safe during this tour. I was a bit worried that the neighborhood would be rough, but it wasn't that way at all. I would recommend this tour for anyone wanting to experience Athens beyond just the major tourist attractions.

The Best Tour Guide I Have Ever Had
Sep. 2019
This tour was probably the highlight of our entire trip to Greece. The tour itself was exactly what we were looking for. It got us out of the tourist core of Athens and into some of the locally oriented neighborhoods that we probably never would have known existed. The food and drinks were incredible as well -- we were introduced to a couple of drinks we had never heard of and that we liked so much that we loaded up on them and brought them back home with us. Beyond that though, the tour guide, Georgia, was without a doubt the best tour guide I have ever had, which is saying something, because I've done 25+ tours across 4 different continents. She was passionate, knowledgable, and very personable. She made every part of the experience fun and engaging and really helped you feel like you were connecting with modern-day Athens. Her energy also made for a great group intimacy, helping everyone to get to know each other and develop a camaraderie around the shared experience. If you are looking for a way to go beyond the ancient sites and get to know a little about the Greek people today, I don't think there is an activity out there that would be a better choice than this tour.

Thank you for your lovely comment and the time you took to write it! We are very pleased to read that you got to know how real Athens is today, besides its shiny Acropolis part! There are so many more things to discover in Athens… Georgia is a wonderful guide who loves showing you around and sharing her knowledge about the Greek contemporary culture!

Sep. 2019 • Family
This was a great and very informative tour. Our tour guide, Georgia, was amazing and was very knowledgable. She is very good at her job. We got to see a side of Athens that we wouldn’t have been able to see without a local guide. We very much enjoyed the experience! I would very much recommend this tour as well as our specific guide, Georgia.
