An enjoyable short walking tour of 2.5 hours. The young girl, Eva, who took us around was a fount of information and made the walk really interesting. Not surprisingly, she turned out to be a teacher who was born and bred in Athens.

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a

I believe I went to the website and they gave me an email address. I emailed them asking for a date/time availability and they got back to me that day or the next.

Starts in Monastiraki Square,at the wooden steps in the square. The square is located below the north side of the Acropolis. The start time was about 10:30 in the morning. I do not know their tour schedule for the summer.
