I highly advise scheduling this tour early in your trip to Athens. Maxime was a friendly and outgoing guide who helped me understand the big neighborhoods in the heart of Athens. He also bought me coffee and Greek pastries, and provided further advice after the tour was ended. I recommend this tour.

One of the best things we did on our trip! I wish we had scheduled it for earlier in our stay though. I wanted to go back and spend more time in many of the off the beaten path places we saw! The stories, meeting our guide's friends in the businesses, and the personal history of Athens was extraordinary! Absolutely amazing!

Very nice tour with Eleni in various neighborhoods around Athens center. I found the mix of information given to be well balanced between insights on way of life of Athèneans, restaurant and other places recommendation and historical insights. We did this tour between our international flight and flight to Santorini.
