Athens, the oldest city in Europe, is also one of its most fascinating. It is a city where travelers wander in a state of perpetual awe around the grand ruins of the classical world, while Greeks dine out until late and enjoy the city's nightlife. Take an Athens tour and see all the city's best sights and vibrant street life with a local guide who wants you to experience Athens as the Athenians do.

Feel your heart soar when you first glimpse the Acropolis rising high above the city skyline. Your guide will take you on an unforgettable walking journey along the pedestrian promenade that links Athens' many ancient wonders, from the striking Parthenon to the Agora where Socrates once mused. A visit to the world-class National Archaeological Museum is a must - it houses countless treasures from ancient Greece, among them Agamemnon's Mask.

Your guide will make sure you take time to relax over coffee at a sidewalk café, where you can watch the whirl of Athenian life go by.
Tour Guide Legal Requirements
If the nature of the tour is that the guide is 'interpreting the cultural and natural heritage of an area', Greece requires the guide have a guiding license. A person giving tours such as the 'best nightlife spots', 'shopping and fashion tour' or 'restaurant tour' for example, does not require a license. This definition follows the European standard for tour guiding (CEN).

Licensed Tourist Guides are the only professionals permitted to conduct tours in all sites and museums within a city. Licensed guides are required in those areas where the local authorities state that one of them is mandatory.

To become a Licensed Tourist Guide, candidates must pass an examination given by the local public tourist authorities. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
