Explore Athens and the Acropolis with us

Hi, I am Despina, co-owner of the Athens Walking Tours and a licensed guide for as long as I can remember.

My team of knowledgeable guides and myself put in our expertise, passion and love for the city. We offer some of the best tours in Athens, from exploring places such as the Acropolis to roaming our city streets in search of the best Greek food.

Safety is important to us. We take all necessary measures to follow health protocols. The summer of 2020 was completely Covid-free for all our tours, our staff and our guests! For summer 2021, Athens Walking Tours is determined to put health and safety first. We take careful actions to ensure a safer touring environment for all. Every Athens Walking Tour guide acts in accordance with the World Tourism authorities to protect the health and safety of themselves, the guests and the wider communities in which they live.

The following guidelines outline our practices, to prioritize health and safety as we all begin to travel again:

Face masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizers are required health protocols for all of our tours.
We have new smaller group tours (up to 8 people) with guaranteed departure.
We offer FREE cancellation to all our tours, if you cannot travel due to Covid-19 or need to reschedule.
We expanded our private tours range with special discounts for families.

Just as importantly, we have created virtual tours for you and your loved ones, in case your travel plans are postponed for next summer.

We plan ahead, we perform on time, and above all, we care.
