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.
Shahab A | May 21 | Acropolis Premium Tour
