Our storytellers will be your ardent companions during your journey to the heart of Greek culture. The themes and the philosophy behind the local tours aim to inspire you and create life-enriching experiences.

Experiencing Greek culture can be achieved in many ways. Exploring museums or archeological sites gives you an insight into the Greek life of the past. However, in order to experience the culture of modern Greeks, you need to meet and interact with the modern-day inhabitants of this civilization. We invite you to experience true culture by opening closed doors and interacting with the locals; to experience today’s vibrant Athenian life by shadowing those redefining it! In tours created by locals in Athens you will relive Athens of the past, experience Athens in the present and contemplate about Athens’ future. Our local storytellers will guide you in an experiential journey during which you will learn about the Greek customs, ancient and modern practices, traditions that survived many generations, everyday habits, values and artistic expressions.

Experience Athens like a local by joining our local tours. Taste the tradition, while enjoying a cup of fresh-brewed Greek coffee at a local square; awake your five senses before savoring traditional Greek spirits, by joining the Scents and Flavors of Athens Walking Tour. Take a spiritual journey into ancient Greece and meditate like Socrates and Pythagoras on a sacred hill facing Acropolis with our Ancient Greek Meditation local experience. Take part in an Ancient Greek Symposium, drink Greek wine produced with the ancient Greek vinification technique and unearth your talent in the ancient art of sculpture. Watch the Greek myths and legends come to life in the most interactive theatrical local tour in Athens at the National Gardens. Habits, traditions, expressions; these are things that cannot be learnt by hearing of or reading about them. they must become experiences, they need to take shape and form through interaction! We, therefore, invite you, the inquisitive traveler, to join our local experiences in Athens Greece.
