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.

What They Say About Us

"Our guided tour of the Acropolis with Poppy from Greek Travellers was exceptional. We did the tour with our teenage daughters and with their grandmother. Poppy could talk to young and old alike. She was extremely knowledgeable and delivered the information in a way that was informative but very entertaining. 100% recommendable and worth every cent."

"We booked a 6 hour private history and food tour and we had a wonderful experience! It was like being shown around Athens by a friend. We loved how our guide shared history, mythology, philosophy, and current cultural insight. The food was excellent. Highly recommend for a professional but fun tour."
― Samantha H, Jul 2022
"If you are looking for a unique and personalized experience/tour in Athens make sure you book with Greek TravelTellers! I went on 3 different tours with them and all were so different, informative and the tour guides were exceptional. They did an amazing job providing facts and information about Greece and Athens that only a local would know. I will be recommending them to everyone I know!"

"Everyone goes to see the Acropolis, and everyone should take advantage of this wonderful tour service. Our tour guide was Sotiris, an incredibly knowledgeable, funny, and engaging guide. Sotiris was so much fun to tour the acropolis with. His ability to weave hilarious personal anecdotes with the amazing history of the Acropolis was something to behold. It was a wonderful experience that we highly recommend."

"Me and my girlfriend did the Symposium and Food Tour in Athen with Costantina. What an amazing experience! These are the stuff that really add value to your time. Costantina is an incredibly joyful person, who is able to share her enthusiasm while telling interesting stories about Athen and the Greek world in general. Our trip wouldn't be the same if we didn't do these experiences! It is not recommended, it is a must!"
― Davide A, Sep 2021
"We did the Athens Food Tour Tastes and Stories of Greece tour with Constantina, it was wonderful! The area, the food (a lot of food!), our guide and the stories, were a perfect combination. This was our first outing into the city and we could not have asked for anything more, loved it! This is a must and if you do it first you will get acclimated to the area and enjoy the rest of your trip."
