Hello everyone! I am Magda, I am a biomedical scientist and I like to travel and meet new people all around the globe. When there is no time for traveling, I try to be a kind of traveler in my own city. Many of us know the fact "Tourist in my own city". Well I am one of those "weird" persons. Well what else you should know about me is that on my free time I like playing my guitar, listening music, wandering in Athens, seeking new street art masterpieces, discovering new hidden places and panoramic viewpoints, dancing and taking shots of urban life. Let me think what else? Oh yes, I am a nature lover as much as an urban lover too. Let me show you my beautiful city and all the hidden gems that only locals (and sometimes not even all locals) know.. Lets be athenian travellers... Come, see and enjoy...

About the tour

Hello everyone and welcome to my vivid and beautiful city, Athens.

This tour is for anyone wishes to walk off-the-beaten paths of the historical city center and learn about tales and history from the old Athena.

We will visit different neighbourhoods and learn about local stories, the culture through time, see the whole view under the shade of the acropolis hill and admire the neoclassical architecture and street art.

The duration of the tour is depending on how much people will come by and on the pace we will have. People remember we are here to enjoy our tour and stroll through the paths and not jogging. Usually the basic walk is 2.5 hours.

Food and drinking are not included in the tour and be sure to wear comfortable shoes because we are going to mount to some point but don't panic it's easy and the view worths it. :p

As you already know is a tip-based tour so I leave it upon you and of course I will wait for your reviews.

**Please send me a message one week before the day you wish to join the tour. This tour is not be arranged every week!

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!

I loved the GuruWalk with Magda. She was puntual in our meeting, very profesional yet friendly and open and knew a lot about Athens, its history and all the hidden places to visit. I would reccoment it to everybody. She enjoys whats she´s doing and she makes you feel like a friend. Thank you Magda, thanks so much for sharing your time with us.

Very nice tour when we told her we liked street art, she took us to a few street art galleries and streets to view more graffiti. Also, shared a lot of places that locals like to frequent.

Magda is a delightful person, and an excellent guide to the heart of Athens. Her enthusiasm is refreshing. The day we scheduled turned out to be the last day of the recent torrential rains. We (my wife and I) were the only visitors who showed, but Magda was on time and fully prepared to soldier-on. We enjoyed a memorable 3 hours or so exploring this vibrant city in unusual conditions that did not slow her down a bit. She salvaged what could have been a lost day and left us with a great and unusual memory that was a highlight of our trip. If you can get on her calendar, you should do so.

Magda was really nice and friendly. It felt as if we had known each other not only for a few hours. We also went to a flea market and a concert in the end which was a lot of fun!
