Our tour was done by Walter. Very Knowledgeable and Friendly Guy. Being a Greek-born and studied Archaeology came really informative for us. Really good experience. Would definitely recommend if you really interested in the ruins and history of Athens.

Great tour! George was very friendly and informative. He gave us a lot of information about the area and mythology which was very fun! He gave fantastic restaurant recommendations including Liondi which was such good value of money with very friendly staff. Great day out!

Don't hesitate to book this tour! We loved every aspect of it, Walter is an impeccable guide with radiating charisma and energy; he made for a really unique, enjoyable morning that seemed to go by extremely quickly! He has a strong background and will provide you with a different perspective to Athens and ancient Greece. We took different routes, so it was nice to be the only group in the majority of the places we walked through (perhaps Covid also played a part) Walter gave us a great restaurant recommendation, where we had to return to twice during our stay!
