Au programme

Being a small group of up to 6, we'll start by getting an idea of the size and importance of the ancient city and, while strolling around the historic city centre, we'll discover landmarks and stories that unveil Athens's multidimensional character. We'll find answers to questions such as: Where it all started? When did ancient Athens die? What is new and what is old around me? Why is there so much traffic? What about the street art scene? How do Athenians hang out? And many more which will come up during our walk. Having all the information about both the old and contemporary city, you will be able to decide where to spend most of your time afterwards. Oh! And did I mention that a breathtaking view to both Acropolis and the sea will wait for us at the end?

Bonus: after the walk, I'll share a google map with suggestions on what to see, do and where to enjoy tasty food and the best drinks, during the rest of your stay! All tried by my friends and I and definitely not tourist traps ;)

Since 2013, I've been welcoming guests, usually on their first day to Athens and before their way to some Greek island. Combining my knowledge of the city secrets as a local and my teaching skills of an earlier career of mine, my aim is to give you a multidimensional presentation of Athens, orientate you in its busy streets and quiet alleys and make you feel welcome and well prepared for the rest of your stay. This walk usually becomes the spark that makes visitors realise that this city deserves more time than maybe originally planned. And I am very happy when I receive most of them as they come to visit us again, this time as a friend.

I read the reviews before booking and thought this would be a good idea; it was an even better idea than I could’ve known. I loved the experience, beginning to end. It’s definitely a walk so be prepared, but it’s so very worth it. Would do it again, for sure!

Had such a great evening with Thanasis and the other guests, we had a detailed tour of city, covering everything from ancient history, to the must-see tourist spots and must-visit restaurants. We covered huge ground by the end of the evening and finished up with a spectacular night time view of the acropolis. Thanasis is very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions with ease. Would recommend this experience to anyone

Best walking tour I've ever done. I highly recommend this tour at the beginning of your trip. Thanasis was so kind and welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about Athens and Greece in general. I feel like one reason for this is he does this out of his passion and love for Athens not for the money as he has another job. We all ended up grabbing dinner at the end because we enjoyed his company. Don't miss out on the best Athens experience to get you oriented with the city.

IF there is only one you can take in ATHENS let is be this one! One cannot possibly express, the ease, comfort, and friendliness Thanasis exudes. A passionate storyteller about his city, NOT a tour guide and you will NOT feel like a tourist but a friend. Our time together was incredible he printed out a custom map, had a tablet with visual aids to see things from various perspectives both old and new! AND to top everything off he gives you a very extensive list of attractions to visit within the area both food and POI's. When it comes to "walking tours" Thanasis experience is the top example of warm excellent Greek hospitality. I cannot express in words how much better he is than other folks on here when it comes to experiencing Athens. Efharisto Thanasis!

What a joy!! Thanasis showed us how to see and how to understand his city. I am very fussy about tour guides, who usually spout information. Thanasis, instead, asked super smart questions that helped us make sense of what our eyes hadn’t quite known how to see. We walked for hours, always arriving at the exact right moment of the setting sun and darkening sky. A magical evening. Thank you!!!

The walking trip was an incredible experience to understand Athens, both past and present. I really appreciated the in-depth knowledge that the guide provided to give us a richer understanding of modern Athens that has been rooted in so much history. Just an incredible experience.
