Not a huge fan of walking tours, but none the less signed up and had Sam as tour guide. She was brilliant and really enjoyable few hours with a great insight into Athens.

Had a great tour with Jonathan! I have done many free walking tours in a variety of European cities and this one was great. Covered all of the major sites and added particular details such as restaurant recommendations and places for a great view of the Acropolis at night. Not to miss!

The tour was good as we get to know the history behind each monuments and ruins in Athens, so we get more information than most other tourists.

Ares is knowledgeable about the history of Athens, as well as know some good food and places in Athens (the anti-mainstream and authentic ones) . We tried one and it did live up the hype.

One input: Maybe its because we were joining the 2 PM tour, but we kind of missed Akropolis (as the tour ends at 5 so Akropolis were already closed). It would be good to include this in the tour, at least tell some histories about it.

This is one of the best free tours we have ever been to. Our guide Sam was an excellent guide, very professional and really knew how to connect with the people in the group. The tour had the perfect amount of historical information and fun facts. We were never bored and it was very interesting, overall it was a great insight into not only the tourist sites but also into life in Athens. Totally recommended!

Very recomendable! It is the best way to get introduced to the city and to know the best visits times and a lot of interesting and historical facts about Athens. I would do it again. The guide Jonathan was really friendly, funny and knew a lot of interesting things about the city.
