This tour was canceled the day before because we could not have a French speaking guide. In exchange, we took the street art tour with Maroussa. AWESOME. Maroussa is adorable and knows her subject inside out. She lived in Belgium for 20 years before returning to the land of her ancestors. We had a great time with her in the trendy areas of Athens. We recommend this street art tour with Maroussa. ONLY HAPPINESS

What an excellent experience this tour of Athens away from the usual places, in the heart of the "real" city ... Ariadni, our guide, made us discover many neighborhoods, explaining their history. It's really a very good experience ... Thanks again to Ariadni for her listening and her love for a country which is not hers but which has become ...

Our guide Vania was great .... We were able to visit neighborhoods that we would not have thought of visiting without this outing. We learned the habits and customs of the Athenians nowadays in short to recommend without moderation

English speaking guide who showed us around corners of Athens where we would probably not have gone spontaneously and others very touristy but always with some interesting anecdotes.

A wonderful EXPERIENCE!

We loved our tour guide! It was nice being part of a small group.
