Hello travelers! My name is Rebecca and I am a tourism professional. Together with my friends Theodor, Nikoleta, Evelin, and Vicky we will be more than happy to walk with you through our neighborhood Exarcheia, and share our knowledge and funny anecdotes about this place.
Five years now, this has been our stomping ground, so as local residents, we have many stories to share, hidden hangouts to show you and culinary adventures that you would appreciate. Let us show you how interesting it is! Finishing the tour, you would have understood why we have chosen to live and work in this district.

Wow what a tour! Theo actually led the tour, it was a very unique experience, possibly the highlight of my time in Athens. Theo explained the history of the area in great detail and made very interesting connections that I never would have thought of. He explained how it was like when he was a student in the area. I came back with a greater understanding and empathy for the Anarchy movement in Athens. I would recommend this company to anyone traveling to Athens.

Sweet anarchi is a mind opening experience. This is a total MUST DO for everyone that believes that diversity is power. My host was so easygoing, knowledgeable and passionate about this tour. I would do it over and over again! Love the concept of sweets as well.

Theo was wonderful. Had him for 2 tours and he is outstanding. This is a tour of real Athens and off the beaten path. Never felt unsafe. You won’t regret this tour. Profiteroles were the best ever!! If you are interested in the recent history of Greece, this is amazing. We are not historians by any stretch but loved the tour!

Such a great day in Athens. I would never have the chance to discover by myself, all those spots she took us. Everything we tasted was delicious. I recommend it to everybody who likes to see the unknown parts of the city.

Exarcheia is an artsy and authentic old Athenian neighborhood and our walking experience with Rebecca was simply amazing. The whole area is like a street art open museum and Rebecca was so knowledgeable about the art, artists and we understood the meaning behind the political graffiti. The walk was a great combination of knowledge and sweet stops (I actually went back to two stops for the tasty loukoumades and the handmade ice cream). I definitely recommend this experience and believe it is a must while in Athens if you want to see the real side of a modern city and its recent history.
