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.
We love what we do and that is why even within 2020 and 2021, the fierce pandemic years, we managed to actually raise our review rate by an impressive 396% and rate 9th amongst the top 20 tour operators in Europe based on review growth, according to Arival.
We plan ahead, we perform on time, and above all, we care.
An excellent 3 hour guided tour with an extremely knowledgeable archaeologist guide. Just the tight amount of time to tour the Acropolis site and the highlights of the outstanding Parthenon Museum.
