What you'll do

Follow the footsteps of distinguished travelers who had a special impact in Greece's modern history... - An undercover spy of the British Intelligence Service who was the personal priest of the royal family and of the most prominent Athenians - A lady whose love scandals had made the front page of the TIMES - Who ridiculed the Greek government in the 1850s and seized the boats of the Piraeus port? - Which traveler is considered the father of geography in Greece? - The lord and poet who gave his life and fortune for the Greek Independence War - The first Airbnb in the 19th century in Athens ..... and more A storytelling walk in the streets, monuments and neighborhoods of Athens, the place where exciting stories of romance, intrigue, politics, espionage and more, marked the life of the city when Athens was declared the capital of modern Greece. You, that do not just like stereotypical tours but seek an alternative perspective, prepare yourself for a charming and unforgettable experience. I look forward to meeting you, walking with you, narrate the stories and why not reminisce what this is all about… P.S. We are not entering any archaeological sites.

Eleni

Hi! My name is Eleni. I was born in Athens and I have studied Social Theology and Criminology. I have travelled a lot and lived in the USA and UK, but my love for this complex and vibrant city brought me back to my roots. Studying for many years the fascinating history of my beloved city gave me the idea and the foundation to create a unique walking tour for all modern travellers. My goal is for you to enjoy the hidden side of Athens as much as i have while tracing the past!
