Athens Walking Tours was founded in 2004 and since then we are very proud to have grown and expanded our product range, offering innovative, fresh and memorable activities to Athens visitors!
Each and every one of our tours have been carefully designed by experts and executed with great success by selected and well trained Athens Walking Tours guides. All of our guides share one common trait: they love their job, which they regard as a mission, and do not repeat rehearsed information, but rather share their wealth of knowledge about Greece in a friendly and informative manner.
We operate historical walking tours that cover up most attractions of the city (and beyond) as well as wonderful culinary tours, the Athens Food Tours, the Athens Cooking Lessons & the Athens Wine Tasting Tours!
Join a tour at Athens Walking Tours for an unforgettable Athens experience!
