We only had one day in Athens so we did the daytime walking tour and the evening food tour. We were the only people on each tour so it made it very personal! These tours really take you out of the touristy places and shows you the heart of Athens. The food tour was so awesome. Angelos took us to all his favorite places and we ate and ate! Ended the night with some authentic greek music!

We learnt so much about Greek food, and explored some cool parts of the city. I loved the tour and our host Marleen was so kind. Even as a vegan and vegetarian we had lots of eat and left with full stomachs. Would definitely recommend this lovely tour and can't wait to come back.

A wonderful tour of the hidden treasures of Athens. Almost all of which, we would not have seen otherwise! This tour focused on historic as well as local treasures: neighborhoods and restaurants which are not normally seen on larger tours. The guide touched on some of the locals' favorite restaurants, dessert places, a hidden neighborhood and passageways, a romantic and historic hill, and much more! We were also shown some of the neighborhoods/areas that have drastically changed since the economic crisis, as well as shown what it had previously looked like, and what the previous atmosphere was like when at the end of the tour, we were taken for a wine/beer. While seeing the Acropolis is obviously a must, if you have any time at all to get a better feel of a less touristic Athens, this tour is a must!
