Stavros was an amazing guide, full of knowledge and knew when and where to crack a joke. The tour was so entertaining that it totally didn’t feel like it lasted two and a half hours.

We were on tour with Walter

The Pros:
• Extremely Knowledgeable Guide: Our guide, Walter, holds a Master’s Degree in Archaeology, and his depth of knowledge about the history of Athens and the Roman Empire was impressive.
• Adaptability: Walter was able to perfectly tailor his explanations to suit the interests and knowledge levels of the group. He adeptly answered all questions, whether they were about historical Greece or current day issues.
• Engaging and Informative: The tour was both engaging and informative, providing a comprehensive overview of Athens’ rich history. Walter's ability to connect historical events with modern-day Athens added a unique and enriching dimension to the tour.
• Flexible Contribution: As a free tour, you are free to contribute as little or as much as you want for the tour, making it accessible for all budgets.
• No Shopping Stops: This tour is purely focused on sightseeing and history. There won't be any stops at "recommended shops" or "recommended restaurants," ensuring that the entire experience is dedicated to learning and exploring.

Overall Impression: The New Athens Free Tour with Walter as our guide was an exceptional experience. His expertise in archaeology and his ability to engage with the group made the tour both educational and enjoyable. Whether you're a history buff or simply curious about Athens, this tour is highly recommended for a thorough and insightful exploration of the city, free from commercial interruptions.
