What you'll do

We will show you the old and modern way of enjoying the city of Athens. Join us to experience a magical afternoon with locals!

We'll meet at Monastiraki Square and we will walk around Plaka, while enjoying a drink among the center's many souvenir stores and taverns. Then, going up, we will enjoy a magical view of Athens by sunset!

After capturing the moment of the wonderful Seven Hills of Athens with pictures on the sunset and the Acropolis on the background, we will walk to the islandic alleys of Anafiotika, the most stunning area of Plaka. Going back down, we walk through the famous graffiti streets where you will have the chance to learn their stories and secrets. All along the way, we will share with you the best instagram spots of Athens (pictures taken by "Vrontis II").
And, we keep the best for the closure: Souvlaki(!) & recommendations of course for the rest of your vacation in Greece!

*Tip: if the city is too hot to walk, don't worry, pame paralia (greek saying)! (Info upon request) :)

I'm Adam and with my friend Greg we live in Athens for more than 20 years! Growing up and living here we never stopped admiring the beauty and the diversity of this city. Τhe ancient and fascinating area of Plaka, the colorfull and lively nightlife of Athens and the seaside of the sunny South and East Athenian Suburbs, are some of the spots for which we have created a unique sightseeing guide that we will follow together through this beautiful city! This place is way more interesting than you have ever imagined before you visit it!

Our passion and energy for this urban style of living has led us for the past 5 years to guide people and share moments (and pictures :) in Athens, the oldest capital of Europe!

Where you'll be

The area that we'll walk through is right underneath the hill of Acropolis.
It's one of the oldest residential areas of Athens and has a totally different feeling from the rest of it.
The narrow alleys, the bougainvilleas (flowering shrubs) and the white night flowers among the small houses built in the slope of the ancient hill, give the feeling of a different place in the city center.

Rated 4.85 out of 5 from 46 reviews.

Unlike most people, I had this tour after a few weeks in Athens. I had gone out anti about in the city but hadn’t really had any historic backgrounds and facts on the things I had seen, and there still were hidden gems I had not seen ! Adam and Greg are very friendly and knowledgeable. It’s very pleasant to have a tour with two local friends, despite not being professional guides or historic experts they are very knowledgeable about the city and it’s history and myths, which show their real interest and passion for the subject ! They will adjust to your needs and comfort too if needed. The tour ended with a delicious souvlaki :) I highly recommend !

I really enjoyed this tour with Adam and Grigoris !They both were rather knowledgeable and communicative . However, the fact I appreciated the most was the emphasis they put on mythology and not just solely on historical events.

I really enjoyed my tour with both Adam and Gregory. They made me feel so welcome and allowed me to immerse myself in the Greek culture from a local. The experience was really enriching. They also recommended me great bars and restaurants which I will definitely be visiting. And the souvlaki they took me to was amazing!

Это было потрясающе время, я не первый раз в Афинах, но то что я увидела и услышала это было мне новое. Также был очень хороший фотограф, угощались напитком и едой. Это был мой очень хороший выбор. Парни реально профессионалы. Спасибо большое. Нона.

This was without doubt the best experience my sister and I experienced in our entire trip. Both Adam and Greg were so open and friendly and knew their stuff. They were passionate and shared details only a passionate local would know. They were interested in us and both asked and answered questions to show they cared about their customers. Thank you for this experience. It is one I will never forget.
