Take a detour down Athens’ back alleys and into neighbourhoods you won’t find in guidebook pages! This is alternative Athens, where bohemian shops, amazing street art, hidden courtyards, and indie cafés attract locals — and travellers who want to escape the tourist traps.

Anyone who’s dreamed of visiting Athens has likely read about its ancient glory: the Parthenon, the Caryatids, and all the other wonders of Greece's glorious past. But Athens isn’t only about the past! It’s also a city very alive in the present, with modern-day stories and secrets just as exciting as the Greek myths!                   

On this Athens city tour, you’ll stroll beyond the traditional guidebook sites, and visit lesser known neighbourhoods favoured by locals, and discover secret corners that aren’t found online.

We’ll start our tour  by sipping a traditional Greek coffee in a secret  garden in the centre of the city, a place only known to locals. You’ll stand with awe in front of unique monument and hear the myths and tales that surround these legendary buildings. Learn about kings and queens, heroes and outlaws, but also about a hidden Athensbeneath your feet. The soul of a city is its people, and you are going to hear and see their traditions and superstitions.

Continuing our walk, we’ll head off the beaten track and into back lanes and past bohemian workshops, to see how life is for middle class Athenians. We’ll check out the surprisingly bustling art scene in the city streets — in fact, the street art scene in Athens is one of the biggest in the world, and even the word ‘graffiti’ comes from the Greek word grafi, which means ‘written.’

During our Athens tour, we’ll see the old mingling with the new, along streets that connect (or divide) the past and the present. Think ancient tombs and factory chimneys, art centres, and hidden courtyards. And along the way, we’ll get a literal taste for Athenian life with tastings of sweet delights and sips of local spirits.

By the end of this tour, you will have experienced the real flavours of the oldest European city, Athens!
