    - Ilektra M, TripAdvisor
  •  “I have participated in the "Scent of a city" tour and it was a very beautiful experience! It was a three hours tour through every little street of the Athenian center with a local Athenian guide. We have tasted many local goodies and felt the real Athenian atmosphere. The guide was exceptional, very well-informed about the city and available to show us all the hidden corners of Athens, which a normal tourist would very hardly discover even with a guide. Totally recommended!”
