The Athens Street Art tour took us to parts of Athens we would otherwise never have seen, and the guide knew all about the official and unofficial street art. Some of it is really amazing - other parts are graffiti. We were glad we had taken this tour. The company, Greeking.me is excellent and helpful - do try them.
Thanks Greeking.me for showing me Athens from the other side, not only ancient but from modern angle. I loved it. They love what they do, so if you want to understand the country fall in love with Greece you should visit one of their tours. It will be exciting and very true greek experience
Our guide Marialena took us on a great walking tour into areas we would not have been able to find for ourselves as well as some of the better known murals. Not only was she knowledgeable but her delightful and warm personality made our tour particularly enjoyable. She mixed a lot of history and cultural information into her talk and we learned a lot!
We had a wonderful private street art with Theo. He was so knowledgeable and it was really interesting hearing some historical facts from him. The street art was a big highlight for me. I was really moved by a few of the pieces we were shown on the tour, so thank you for catering us and our little family. Big thanks to Theo for being such an excellent, informative guide. Would love to have more time one day to explore Athens with another of your guides.
