Our day tour through Athens Tours was led by a tour specialist Mr Anthony Paleologou. His knowledge and personality made our visit special. He made our day in the Athens area one that we will always remember. His Australia/English was delightful. We named him The Gralian. His Greek and Australian spirit was just right for our tour

We hesitated to book a tour because we only had one full day in Athens. In retrospect, that's exactly why we're happy we did. Our drive/guide met us at our hotel promptly dressed very professionally. He provided us interesting information as we drove between points of interests, and gave us helpful tips about each destination visited. Our driver/guide was completely... More

I took two tours one to Delphi and Thermopylae and the other to Olympia and Sparta. I had two amazing tour guides and they were awesome. The whole tour was set up very well. I had guides at every museum and to set this up by myself, it would have taken a very long time. I will book this tour... More

My short trip to Greece last year would not have ben the same without services provided by "Athens Tour Greece". I used them for airport transfer and a day trip to Deplhi and Thermopylae. Our driver Vasius was fluent in English and very knowledgeable in history. We never felt the need of a professional guide. The service was very punctual,... More

We were in port for one day and had partnered with others through cruise critic web site roll call prior to the sailing. A group of 13 of us were picked up by Alex and provided an amazing tour.

We only had 3 nights in Athens, so chose to book a private day tour with this company. We were a family of 6 ranging from 10 to 70 years old! The tour was the perfect decision, and the company and guide (Alex) were fabulous. The mini bus was very comfortable and Alex was very knowledgeable. A great way to... More

The tour was ok overall. I was hoping that the driver will tell us more about the city. He showed us all the important sites, took us to a nice restaurant in Piraeus overlooking the water. On second thoughts, we should have taken a guide to explain what we see. All we did is saw everything but did not know... More

Can you believe that we saw all Athen's fundamentals in a 10 hour tour? That we were at the Acropolis before it was opened and had it to ourselves, then the same happened at the newly renovated A museum, the Odeon, at the archeological museum, the change of the guard in the Parliament, the Royal Palace, the presidential house, the...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
