Opinions about our team...

Definitely a must-do at the beginning of any trip to Athens! We have been walking around with Vasilis and it was really entertaining. An amusing history lesson, presenting the main historical places of the city plus any number of useful general places (such as restaurants, nightlife, etc.) all seasoned with a cultural introduction to Greece. That guy's the best!
What an amazing way to discover the history of Athens. Our new friend Jimmy was fantastic. He was extremely open and polite and made us feel so welcome. His knowledge of Athens history blew us away and it was so interesting to hear some of the wonderful facts he shared with us all. The kids absolutely loved him too. No better way to drench yourself in Athens history! He even joined us for a nice cold drink afterwards. A must on your to do list whilst visiting Athens!
'Another highlight of our holiday!'
For my first contact with the city of Athens, I decided to have a walking experience and it was an excellent decision! Well on that cold December day our friend Vasilis was more than great. He is fluent in English, knowledgeable, well prepared and always cheerful. He gave us information on the history of ancient Greek as well as nowadays Greek society. Fun facts were also included to make his speeches more entertaining. Moreover, all along our walk, Vasilis gave me some solid recommendations for food and places to visit.
I did enjoy this from the first minute to the very end. Highly recommended!
"Informative and Entertaining!"
This walking experience with Jimmy was an amazing experience. We saw all the highlights of Athens and heard some interesting stories about the background of these monuments. We really enjoyed his funny way of telling us about the historical events that took place in this city and especially all the mythology about the Greek gods. He also gave us some great insider tips on where to taste some the best Greek delicacies!
We would definitely recommend this walking experience on one of the first days of your Athens city trip to get an overview of all the sights.
