About the tour

Hello dear visitors! I'm George and it will be my pleasure to be your guide in this alternative downtown tour of the historical center.

With my team you'll see the best of what Athens has to offer, in this amazing city tour. It's a fully detailed guided tour that will take you through the major historical part of the city and will uncover for you all the history behind the today's view in an alternative and interactive way!

The tour begins inside the Syntagma metro station, where will visit the metro Museum with the famous artifacts from the daily life of Ancient Athenians, that came to light during the construction of the metro.

Will then continue on to the House of the Greek Parliament, the Monument to the Unknown Soldier where will watch the changing of the guards, a classic but sacred moment of our city tradition.

Our tour continues towards the National Gardens and onto the neoclassical building of Zappeion Mansion, the worldwide famous ceremonie's hall.

Will, then, meet the Presidential hall at the famous Herodou Attikou str. and will pass to reach the Panathenaic stadium, the place where the Olympic games took place at the first time, in the ancient times.

From there we walk towards the Philopappos Hill under the sacred Hill of Acropolis through the beautiful pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou. The tour ends at Philopappos Hill, where will have plenty of time to take pictures on the Pnyx Hill and enjoy the wonderful views down to the city of Athens or continue your walk till to reach the exceptional Thisio neighborhood.

The tour is free of fees/charges based mainly on tips and donations

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Giorgios's knowledge of the area and locale was excellent. Informative, well paced without rushing through it and was good to chat too. I would recommend to any newcomer to Athens.
