If you are looking for locals who speak excellent English, are very accommodating, and very fun to be with, book a tour with Nikoleta and / or Alexandra while in Athens.

Our experience with Athens Urban Adventures was exhilarating. My daughter, Athena and me gained lots of knowledge and discovered some hidden memorable places of Athens that we never seen before. We highly recommend using Athens Urban Adventures and looking forward in seeing you next summer again. Best, Angie Beis

We had the pleasure of being accompanied by Nikoleta on the Taste of Athens tour. The tour involved a relaxed stroll around the markets & shops, allowing time to ask questions & find out more about Greece. Nikoleta was charming, with a lovely personality & great sense of humour. She spoke excellent English & had a wide range of knowledge... More

We started by tasting real greek coffee at a locals' cafe then to the meat and fish markets, then via side streets to a cured meat shop for tasting of various meats to a café which made doughnuts and finally to a delicatessen where we sampled cheeses, meats, olives, tomatoes etc until we could eat no more. Highly recommended.

I have to say I had an amazing time with one of the tour guides, Eleni. She talks with such a passion about her city that you can't help falling in love with Athens too. I would recommend Eleni to anyone who wants to have a magically captivating tour of athens.

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).
