Nikoleta was an excellent tour guide! Walked us around Athens, saw so many amazing ruins, definitely couldn't have found all these secrets ourselves. Nikoleta took note of my sweet tooth and introduced us to a delicious Greek lukamades shop. The markets in Athens were fascinating and Nikoleta showed us some great homewares gems we never would have found. Highly recommend!

We booked three tours during our two and a half day trip to Athens: Bohemian, Acropolis/Parthenon, and Taste of Athens. Niko took us up to the Parthenon and his knowledge of Classical history and literature was remarkable. Nikoleta was our tour guide for the Bohemian trip and the Taste of Athens. We explored, we ate, we laughed - it was... More

I did the Taste of Athens tour with Nikoleta in June. Overall a fun experience - we went through the outdoor market stalls where fresh meat, seafood and vegetables are sold (warning: the meat displays will gross out the vegetarians), had coffee prepared on a heated sand tray, a charcuterie plate at a cheese and salami shop, a meze platter...

Excellent tour with Gina as our guide. Very personal tour as only the two of us. Walked the central markets of Athens, tasted some goodies along the way. Visited the flee market and then onto the ruins. 3 hour tour in all and on foot. Great way to experience the local culture

I was lucky enough to get Nicoletta as a guide and unlike other tours I've taken it was like being guided by a friend. So refreshing, because the last thing I needed was to be bombarded with too much information. The Athens Central Market and food venues were excellent and I would do this again.

Staying in Exarchia

Neighborhood Profile
Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
