Enjoy the intimacy of a small-group tour and discover the best that Athens has to offer – from age-old ruins to vibrant markets and religious temples. Navigate your way through bustling streets and immerse yourself in Athenian life while seeing some of the ancient world's most impressive structures.

Begin your day as the Greeks did for thousands of years, with a trip to the local market. Savour the exotic sights, sounds and smells of this colourful scene. Observe local traders flogging their wares and listen as your guide points out fresh and interesting produce.

As you wander through the streets, be on the lookout for historic buildings, such as the Pantanassa Monastery, a Corinthian-style temple, as well as an 18th-century mosque.

Your tour will take you past ancient Agora next, where merchants traded enthusiastically during Greek and Roman times. You’ll see the lively central neighbourhood of Thission and pass houses from the 17th and 18th centuries along the way, as we make our way to one of Athens’ oldest areas, Plaka, to enjoy a freshly brewed coffee as we chat about all things ancient Greek.

Your Athens tour ends at the entrance of the Acropolis, where you are free to continue on your own personal exploration or your local guide can give you advice on the best way to get back to your hotel. Don’t forget to ask for tips on what else to see and do during your stay.
