Great Tour! This was an awesome tour! Our guide, Georgia, was excellent! She was energetic, informative, and excited to pass on all the history and traditions of Greek food as well as city of Athens. We saw parts of the city we would not have seen on our own. We highly recommend this tour.

Highly recommend food tour! I highly recommend the food tour of Athens with Athens Walking Tours. Our guide, Rena, was so sweet and fun. We learned a lot and she showed us so many amazing places we never would have discovered otherwise! She was really accommodating and we had the best time!

Terrific Experience Our guide was terrific. He was an archaeologist and was able to explain what was found, what the places represented and what the reconstructions that were taking place would look like. Very well worth the experience.

A really informative tour of the Acropolis I would highly recommend the Skip the Line tour of the Acropolis. Our guide Katrina was highly informative, patient and entertaining.

Highly recommend! We really enjoyed our 1.5 hour tour of the Acropolis and 1.5 hour tour of the museum. Our guide, Kimon, was really funny and knowledgeable and helpful! We learned so much and I really recommend booking this tour to make the most out of the experience at the Acropolis!

This class was something different that will stick with us. Fofi is so nice and walks you through everything. Rather than just go through the motions, she genuinely seems to care if everyone is having a good time. The food was incredible and we made way more than the 12 of us could eat. This is an absolute must and well worth the money.

Gods and myths walking tour. Loved this tour. We learned so much and our teenage boys really enjoyed it. They are 15yo. We got to see parts of Athens we would never have discovered on our own. I love walking tours. Such a great way to get to know the city.

Our teenage daughter had requested a Greek cooking class during our stay in Athens and it was a great experience.Small group of 16 guests and very hands on. Fofi, the instructor, was engaging and taught us how to make the specific dishes on the menu, but also gave us tips and insights into Greek cuisine, ingredients, culture.

Celebrating 21!!Our guide was so generous with his depth of knowledge and passion for Greece! He invited us to be part of history! We loved it!!!
Jane O | 29.06.2018 | Private Walking Tour: The Acropolis
We had a great guide and we enjoyed his insights and knowledge. It was great to see Athens' sights in a small group. The tour goes for 5 hours so it's a relatively long time, but it is at a casual pace. Would recommend this tour! Very good if you want to see the sights and get an idea of the historical importance of each area.

Wonderful AM Acropolis Tour! Highly recommend this early AM Acropolis Guided Tour! My husband and I took this tour in May while on our honeymoon in Greece. We only had a day to spend in Athens and this was definitely time well spent!

Greek Small-Group Cooking Class in an Athens Tavern. Our teacher was fabulous. She engaged everyone from the very beginning. Her English was impeccable and she gave great tips and knowledge. I would recommend to friends to do! Our dishes turned out yummy. I think she inspired my husband to cook!
