Enjoy a delicious authentic Greek lunch and afterward explore the old city of Athens, Plaka, stroll around its small streets and various ancient monuments, shops, and experience the ambiance of what Athens looked like before it became the modern city of today.

Relax in the beautiful Zappeion Gardens, with a short stop for a coffee or refreshments, followed by a stop at Zappeion Hall and a view to the Panathenaic Stadium, an ancient Stadium originally built in 338 B.C., but reconstructed in the 19th century, to host the revival of the Olympic Games in 1896.

This tour exceeded all expectations. It absolutely exceeded all expectations. They were well organized and very friendly. Our guide was amazing. He was super fun and very informative. But more importantly, he was very engaging. He made the sites and information come to life. It was a long day but, he made it fun and interesting throughout. I would absolutely recommend this tour and this company. I will definitely use them again if I get the opportunity to return to Greece.
