Experience Athens as an Athenian with your own private guide!
If you want to experience Athens off the beaten track, get to know how Athens has evolved to the city it is today and how the Athenians live, eat and drink, this is the ideal combination tour to take!
This combination gives you a very good idea about how Athens has through the centuries and how the 4 different cities co-exist, ie the ancient, the ottoman, the neoclassical and the modern city. At the same time you also get to taste and learn about many things of the Greek cuisine.
The tour starts from the Parliament in Syntagma square and we visit posh Kolonaki, where we do tastings of local products from small producers from all over Greece. Then, we continue to the rebellious Exarchia, before we venture into Neoclassical Athens, the food markets and the famous 'spices' street of Athens, to taste specialty meats and cheeses.
We continue into the Ottoman parts of Athens and stop for a sweet bite somewhere along the way, before continuing towards Monastiraki, the 'soul of Athens', where our tour ends.
Syntagma square, Parliament, Athens Trilogy (National Academy, University, National Library), Omonia Square, City Hall Square, Spice street, Central Food Market, Psiri, Monastiraki flea market, Gazi (old gas factory)

Tania provided excellent service. Be prepared to eat - really. Have a small breakfast, because she will feed you plenty. She walks at a nice, easy pace - but steady.
