About the tour

A fascinating walk through Athens modern and ancient history! Myths are always important in order to understand the mentality of the people and culture back in time so be sure that you will get many of them!!

With starting point from the Greek Parliament, a place that has played an important part in Greece's newest history we will walk backwards to history with an ending point the gate to Acropolis Archaeological area entrance , where we will be able to take a closer look to Acropolis.

The tour will include the following sites:

Starting point at the Greek Parliament. Then we would with direction to Hadrian's Arch and the temple of Zeus. Then we will head into the old city of Athens. There food and water will be found in many of the little shops we will pass by. we will walk in the narrow streets just below Acropolis with direction the Odeon of Herodes Atticus where we will admire the big theater that still someone can watch theatrical plays, operas, gigs!! From there we will head to our last stop at the Acropolis entrance and from there we will go up to a small hill in a short distance where we will be able to have a better view of acropolis and the area around it!!

Be sure to wear comfy shoes and clothes! Weather in Athens is warm and you will need to be as comfy as it gets!! water and food is not needed because we will find on our way a lot of stores where you can provide your self with them.

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!
