Hello traveling @! We are a group of friends fascinated by the culture, mythology and history of this magical city. After working for the "big" companies in the sector, we decided to become independent with the aim of offering something better and promoting a sustainable market and tourism. This is how our dear project was born: Free Tour Athena. We came to Greece for love (true), like a crush on Eros (Cupid), and now we have the pleasure of dedicating ourselves to what we like to do the most: Transmit everything that this city has given us to travel like you, we have our arch ready ... Do you want to discover Athens and feel like a local?

About the tour

| DISCOVER THE OTHER FACE OF ATHENS | We are two neighbors of the Exarchia neighborhood, better known today as "the alternative neighborhood." A place that many speak lately and which we want to show you from a local point of view: Exarchia played a fundamental role in achieving modern Greek democracy, and many people do not know it! We will explain the origin of this ideological and activist movement, we will talk about the current political / social situation in Athens and what Exarchia represents in this context. We will also discuss different controversial issues such as "the refugee crisis", "squatter houses", "the airbnb phenomenon" ... and much more! We invite you to ask us everything you want while we walk through these streets full of stories and street art. You can also ask us for any kind of recommendation; Exarchia has become the hot spot to go out, due to its large number of typical taverns and places to have a beer with friends. Perhaps you have already visited the tourist spots of Athens, however ... you still need to know another very important reality! Important: This more than a tour is a walk with friends. We work with very small groups and only by confirmation. After booking we will send you a message that you must answer to confirm your attendance, we do this in order to avoid last-minute "non-attendance" and also be able to offer a closer and personalized treatment. If you wish, we will climb a hill (away from tourism) to see a beautiful sunset. We will also have the opportunity to try something delicious in a local tavern.

La historia de este barrio, tal y como la cuenta Medusa, no viene en ninguna guía. Son vivencias de barrio, de lugares en comunidad, de personas, de asuntos sociales/políticos/éticos... En este recorrido los hitos del barrio se entremezclan con los personajes que les dieron vida.

Medusa fue puntual a la cita, la comunicación previa con ella fue muy clara y rápida y la visita pasa rapidísimo. ¡Qué mejor señal que esa para recomendarla!

Great tour! Shows a very different side of Athens, far from the stones of Ancient Greece. Very vibrant and pleasant area you will visit and plenty of information from someone who lived there! Thank you!
