  •  “Experience Athens with all your senses! My only regret was we didn't do this tour our first day in Athens. Constantina showed us her favorite local favorites, some off the beaten path and some in the thick of things. She was a delightful host and now friend. Working with Dimitris online before the trip was seamless. He was very informative and quickly responded to our questions. We will be recommending Greek TravelTellers to all our friends.”
    - Anne J, TripAdvisor
  •  “We could stay in Athens only for a couple of days and wanted to see as much of the city as possible. This tour was absolutely amazing! Connie, our guide, was great. She guided us through streets of Athens telling us many stories and letting us in the habits of the locals. The food and the drinks we sampled were delicious and plentiful. Overall, an amazing morning! Would highly recommend for any type of traveller.”
