I definitely recommend this tour as first thing to do after your arrival!! You would know the city center, places you should visit and the best part about the tour is Dimitris himself. He is really kind person, ready to help at any time. You would not feel at all that you are meeting him for first time. Just BOOK this tour straight away and you won't regret it at all.... :)

Dimitris was absolutely delightful and such a good tour guide! He was very well organised, really friendly and immediately able to put you at ease. The tour was fantastic and informative but Dimitris’ personal approach and the way in which he wanted to make everyone feel safe and welcome in Athens was really special. I would definitely recommend this tour if it’s your first time in Athens! :)
