- "We did a 2 hour walking tour of Athens on our first day and a 4 hour Acropolis & Museum tour the following day - both were fantastic! Our guides, Katerina and Sotiris, told interesting stories about the area's culture and history, and were truly fun to be with! Highly recommend."

2. What you can expect
Plaka and Anafiotika are so much more than the most picturesque areas in Athens! The historic neighborhoods keep secrets, some of them thousands of years old… Follow your knowledgeable and fun, local guide as you set out on a journey of discovery of things otherwise missed!
You will come to understand that many things are not as they seem to be... With the help of your insider guide, you will find that the essence of Plaka and Anafiotika is elusive from the eyes of the outsider. You will also listen to little-known stories and local facts that will surprise you, if not amaze you.
Where did the great Pericles meet Aspasia, the beautiful courtesan that stole his heart, starting one of the greatest romances in ancient Greece? What do the little white and blue Anafiotika houses hide beside their Cycladic origins? Who is actually the unsung hero behind the Lysicrates monument? These are only a few of the secrets you will discover during this walking tour.
Your next journey will take you all around Greece through taste! Your local guide will take you to an excellent, local wine bar. Breath in the local vibes and the sounds of the Athenian evening as you taste 4 premium Greek wines. Four indigenous Greek varieties, representative of the best regions, producers and crops. White and red wines to satisfy even the most eclectic guest. The wine is accompanied by cheeses (like Gruyere of Naxos and Pecorino of Amfilochia) as well as Greek marmalade and breadsticks.
This 3-hour experience will satisfy both your cultural and culinary curiosity.
*Please note that the 1-hour wine-tasting session is optional. If you prefer to join only the 2-hour walking tour of Plaka and Anafiotika, you can let us know and we will exclude the wine tasting from the cost.
