Excellent guide
Oct 2019
The tour was complete, dynamic and interactive. The guide is an archeologist from Athens, with so much to tell about the sites and links with mythology. Her talk was nevertheless adapted to our group. A 4-hour tour might seem long but it wasn't al all. It's just the perfect timing to visit the main sites and understand the history and mythology.

Outstanding Waling Tour of the Athens and Delphi
Aug 2019
Danai was tour guide extraordinaire as she connected the history of Athens to the myths. We loved her storytelling and hung on to every word. She actively engaged our teens and broadened their global perspective on ancient civilization. the tour of Delphi was second to none. We continued to learn about the history of the centre of the world. Arachova was a quaint village. Danai introduced us to Greek coffee - now I'm hooked! I highly recommend Private Athens. We hope to be back soon!

Best walking tour we've done!
Jun 2018 • Couples
My husband and I really enjoyed this walking tour during our recent visit to Athens. We not only got to see all the tourist spots but also learned so much from our guide, Nikos. I really cannot say enough about him--he was excellent, and so knowledgeable about the history and mythology of Greece. I was really impressed with his expertise and delivery, plus he gave us some great restaurant recommendations! I would highly recommend this tour. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Greece.

Great experience and very informative
Our guide Costa was very knowledgeable and approachable. It was a very hot day but he managed to keep us in the shade and as comfortable as possible. The tour went a little longer than expected (about 4.5 hours) but Costa made sure we saw everything we were promised.
