About our historical tours
Our historical tours are suitable for all ages. Elderly people can attend our walking tours as we keep a moderate walking pace, make a lot of stops with seating opportunities and we always stop in the shade in summer. Our tours are not only child friendly but also highly recommended for them. All of our guides are specifically trained to provide our young clients with easy to understand information about the history of Athens.Your babies are also welcome but please do keep in mind that strollers are not allowed on the Acropolis it would be better to use a baby pouch instead.
Οur food is suitable for all ages too. Children are more than welcome in our culinary tours and they enjoy them a lot. The Athens Food tour is fun, entertaining with a lot of tasting and sampling of delicious Greek foods that children love. Elderly people can join them also since the walking is at a moderate pace, always in the shade in summer and we also stay a lot inside nice air conditioned stores where people can sit.
Vegetarians or vegans can also be accommodated in our food tour as there is a huge variety of foods we taste that they are suitable for them also.
About our cooking lessons
Our Cooking Lesson is not suitable for children younger than 6 years old. Cooking utensils (such as knives and graters) are used and parents should decide about whether their children are mature enough to use. Children of course should always be accompanied by adults.
Morning Walking Food Tour This is an amazing company. In fact, company is not the right word. They are family right from the start. Alexandra took care of me from the moment I made my first reservation. Due to covid and all the new restrictions, things were up in the air a bit but she was right there making sure I didn’t miss a thing. ...I’m so thankful I booked with Athens Walking Tours. I look forward to my Acropolis tour tomorrow!!

Premium experience for a premium tour! I had a wonderful time going on this tour with Despina. She has a certain verve and passion when explaining and discussing the historical elements from the sights that made you feel that you have travelled back in time and made the experience feel alive, while at the same time dispelling some of the beliefs I've had for a long time about the Acropolis! There was enough information without it feeling like a boring history lesson, and I appreciated the balance.

Great tour with Vicky!!! This is a great way to see the Acropolis so that you know exactly what you are looking at. Vicky was an amazing local guide. We got queue skip tickets, the tour starts at 11.30 am and last for around 1.5 hrs. You get to visit the Acropolis, Parthenon, Erechtheion, Propylaia, Nike Temple, the Dionysus Theater and Sanctuary. Our group was 10 people from all over the world! Vicky answered all my questions and even gave me some great Greek recommendations too! I did the Walking Food Tour with Despina previously and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND both for

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.

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.
