Vassilios met my husband and I at the airport and swiftly took us to our hotel in Athens. We had booked a day tour with him to Argolis. His knowledge of Greek history is amazing and he was very thoughtful of our comfort and what we wanted to see on our day tour. Despite the wet weather we had a... More

Vassilios was a fabulous tour guide plus he was a local from Athens. My friend and I did a half day tour and we basically hit all the sites we wanted plus some extra lovely views of Athens. Not only we got a tour, he explain the Greek history relevant to the sites we saw. I would highly recommend the... More

My husband and I had a short stop over in Athens after spending a week in Santorini. We were looking for a taxi company to pick us up from the airport and take us around Athens to see the highlights in the limited time that we had. After extensive research on TripAdvisor and a few emails to Vasillios- we booked... More

First time and in Athens and Greece with my friend for a weekend trip. Vassilios was an expert guide and make sure we maximized in our short half-day trip. Not only did we hit all the spots we wanted to on the itinerary, he gave great commentary at each of the sites. At the end of the day, we were... More

Vasillios Vassalos was an excellent guide and a most knowledgeable host. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of the historical, geological, archaeological, mythological and political aspects of the Temple of Poseidon as well as the various sites along the route to Cape SOUNION. Apart from this his friendlyρ and professional manner made the trip a highlight of my Athens visit and... More

Me and my friend planned a trip to Athens without much pre-planning. It is really God's grace that we found Vassilis. He made our weekend amazing. Apart from being a good guide, he is more friendly and have vast knowledge of Greek history. Even though it was a tailor made trip, we didn't miss anything including the Greek food. In... More

We had a wonderful half day tour to Marathon in January 2015. Vassilios was an excellent host and tour guide who provided a highly informative and interesting commentary, both on the way to Marathon and once we were there. We visited all the key sites, including the Marathon Tomb (including the site of the battle), the Marathon Race Museum and... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
