If this is your first time in Athens, or if you want to see central Athens through the eyes of a local, we recommend the “Athens highlights” tour. It will give you an idea of the most central areas of our vibrant city!
Areas we will visit include
• Syntagma square and the Parliament
• Monastiraki, with the flea market
• Psyrri area, with lots of graffiti
• Thisseio and Acropolis, full of archaeological places
• Plaka, with neoclassical buildings, small churches and souvenir shops.
This tour is roughly a 6-7 kms (4-5 miles) walk. Families with small children and people with limited walking ability might want to consider a shorter walk, or a different tour.
We can also stop for a meal (not included), in order to discuss about life in Athens since 3000 BC!
Please note that this tour starts at 17.00 daily. On weekends, we can start any time after 10am, and the tour can also be combined with the "Alternative Athens" tour. Please ask!.
Groups of four people and over have a discount, please ask. It is possible to have the tour for one person only, at the price of 160 USD.
Hello everybody! My name is Vanessa, I am from Athens and I am a social researcher / statistician. I love travelling and meeting foreigners for as long as I can remember. I lived in London for several years, and have travelled to many European countries, USA, Latin America and the Middle East. I started showing people around Athens and Greece in 2006, and have been doing it ever since. My purpose as a guide is to make you feel like a local and to have a day you will remember for a long time! We can go around Athens, go to the beach in summer, cook and eat together and talk about life in Greece, especially during the crisis. Or we can listen to some Greek music, and I can teach you some Greek words to use during your trip here. I can also give you tips for other places you are going to in Greece, and suggest the perfect island for you, depending on what you like. Needless to say, we can design a day in Athens for you, the way you always imagined it! Feel free to contact me! Full profile
