There is over 7000 years of history in Athens; you can not possibly see it all in one day. We focus around the historical center of Athens around the Acropolis, as in our opinion, this is the best of Athens.
We end close to an entrance of the Acropolis and close to other major tourist attractions. Please see the itinerary for more details.
BEST way to experience the history of Athens with Walter! Walter is the most entertaining and informative tour guide we have ever had! This is what you need if you want to experience Athens! Acropolis, Agora, and many other fantastic sites! I cannot recommend this tour enough. And if you have the opportunity to get Walter as your guide, you are in for a real treat.1 year ago
Entertaining and Essential—a great way to understand your first tip to Athens! A great tour. Walter knows his history and archeology perfectly, and is an entertaining and responsive guide. Take this before you visit other sites: not only does he offer good advice on what to see and what isn’t as interesting, but the background he provides enriches everything you see after the tour. Hard to recommend this enough.1 year ago
Great introduction to Athens My friend and I did the historical free walking tour with Andrew as our guide last Tuesday. Having done several of these tours in Europe I would definitely recommend this one. Nice pace and a good amount of info about the places we saw. Also lots of recommendations for good bars, shops and restaurants. Most of our group ended up getting lunch together at a lovely place in the shadow of the Acropolis, but away from the busier streets.2 years ago
Great Tour, will always recommend! English George was an experienced, funny and courteous guide who showed us the Area around the Acropolis. Was never bored one minute, which isn't an easy task as a tour guide. Spoke perfect English, he's half Greek, half British, the perfect combination for a tour guide in Greece.2 years ago
Great free walking tour with George! Did the New Athens Free Walking Tour today with George and thoroughly enjoyed it!
George is a friendly chap and conducts the tour in a fun and engaging way.
Our 3 hour tour took us by many of the city's landmarks and archaeological sites, where George shared interesting facts and historical info about each area in a way that made it easy for everyone to understand. Sometimes history tours can get too long winded and technical, leading to bored listeners, but George gave concise info in a way that we all understood and enjoyed.
Thanks for the tour George.
Meaningful and Beautiful Street Art Tour This tour provides you with some basic knowledge to be able to understand and recognize some of the signs found in each graffiti, differentiate between the types of Street Art and understand the process of creation of every design.
It also allows you to enter the heart of Exarchia and enjoy a lively, supportive and revolutionary neighborhood.
Last but not least, I would like to thank Nikos for his time and passion. Without him this experience would not have been so enriching and personal.
