Athens Walking Tours

If you are interested in a walking tour then we can arrange for a licensed tour guide to accompany you at the archaeological sites. Anna, Dafni, Athanasia (Nancy), Gregory, Theodora, Panagiotis, Georgia and Yiota are willing to share their knowledge of the Ancient Greek civilization and the modern life of Greece with you. They have all studied translation and interpretation and have also attended the school of Tour Guides of Athens for three (3) years. All tours are private with a very flexible itinerary.

**Please note that walking tours are recommended to people that are in good physical condition because they involve a fair amount of walking.**
