The person who guided me (Eleni) was beyond amazing! She accommodated the schedule due to a problem with subway (fires), and I was stuck at the airport, trying to check-in at the hostel and show up for the tour! Best part: I didn’t ask! She offered as soon as she heard I would not make on time! Besides that, she took me to places where I barely saw a tourist, but I found many hidden gems (indeed), such as graffiti, and she also has a lot of knowledge about the places (she will share everything with you)! Eleni also pointed out places to eat and what to order!
I had a great time and I recommend this tour and her!
