I really loved walking the streets of Athens, looking at the graffiti, hidden side streets, living walls, pop-up cafes and amazing food. I thoroughly recommend it. Elias is a knowledgable local with a great sense of history for Greece and Athens.

Elias showed us parts of Athens we would have never seen without him. He was a very knowledgeable guide and so enthusiastic about his city, quite intoxicating! We can recommend him and Athens Walkers wholeheartedly.

Elias is a very brilliant guide! He is very generous with his local knowledge and insight. This, coupled with a good humour made for a very enjoyable tour. When I return to Athens I will definitely do more tours with Athens Walkers!
