Questions, answered

How are these "walks" free?

Our Athens FREE walking tour has no fixed price. They are based on a pay-what-its-worth system. The choice to remunerate your local expert is a 100% voluntary and up to you. We are confident in the quality of our walking tours and are sure you will be satisfied and will want to compensate your guide.

Do we go into any archeological sites or museums during the walk?

We do not enter ANY archeological sites or museums during the walk. This is the job of a licensed guide. Instead we save you time and money by explaining areas and sites of interest from various view points. If you plan on going into the sites please be sure you have planned for some extra time in your schedule to visit them if you are in Athens for a short time.

Do I need to book in advance?

Feel free to show up if you like and we will always try and find a space for you. Although, during the summer months we tend to get very busy so by booking in advance this helps us to prevent overcrowding. Smaller groups seem to be more enjoyable for everyone. BOOK IN ADVANCE. It’s EASY!

How can I join the walk?

Easy! We run walks almost daily, just fill-in the booking form and show up at the meeting point. You could just turn up, but remember that places are limited.

What language are the walks in?

Currently all of our walks are in English language only.

What is the itinerary of the walk? What will we see?

With over 7000 years of history it is nearly impossible to cover it all in a day, but we certainly try. Our focus is the historical center of Athens. Sites may include: the Acropolis, the Parliament, the Agora, the Roman Forum, Plaka, Monastriki, etc. We leave the route and the sites seen up to the discretion of our experienced, local guides. By empowering our guides we feel it keeps our walks far away from the monotonous and mundane. Your day with us, after all, should be fun, informative and exciting to say the least!

We always end close to the entrance of the Acropolis and to other major attractions. The itinerary we provide will most certainly vary from guide to guide and should only be viewed as a general guideline as to what you might see that day.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

No, only a smile! But wearing comfortable shoes and attire is advised. During the summer months things can get quite hot in Greece so it’s advisable to dress accordingly and to have sunscreen with you and a bottle of water. During the walk the guide will occasionally ask the group if they need a break for shade, restroom or refreshments.

Are these walks for everyone?

ABSOLUTELY! New Athens Free TourĀ Loves and Respects ALL races, genders, individuals and identities. We Do Not tolerate, on ANY level, discrimination from our guides or our guest.

Is the walk OK for children or persons impairments?

As stated before, everyone is welcomed to join the walk, but please keep in mind that the content on the walk is not necessarily geared for children and that the terrain in Athens can prove quite challenging for those with impaired mobility. If you have questions concerning this please feel free to contact us at any time. We are always here and always more then happy to help.
