What people are saying about Akadimia

Very good experience, the guide Michèle (her French first name) is very kind and explains in an enlightened way throughout the visit. We were two French in a group of twenty English, after an hour between English and French, we "allowed" him to do the visit in English being at least bilingual. It went very well.

It was great, the guide was very knowledge and took things at a great pace. Even through the busy crowds she stopped to allow everyone to catchup and ensure she had the whole group around. It was a tough job for sure.

Athens is hot and you always have a guide with an air conditioned car and cold water waiting. Wonderful to know exactly what to do and where to go. It does not include fees or food you’ll be paying those.

Fabulous trip! We have adored. The best way to discover Athens. Yannis is super friendly. We recommend 300%

Our walk with Eleni was perfect, intersting, informarive.
