Our recommendation is: Inside
the Syntagma Metro Station
, because we believe it is the right and most convenient spot for the route of the tour! The meeting point is next to the ticket validating machines, underneath the hanging clock. Your tour guide or office representative will be holding the orange colored Athens Walking Tours sign to identify them.
Ask us for pick up from your hotel! Some, but not all hotels are conveniently located within the route of the tour and in this case, our guide will gladly meet you at your hotel lobby and start your tour from there.
