Hoping our paths will cross again in the near future,

Warmest regards from Athens,
Daniel's knowledge and passion showed through every step of the way. He showed us a side of the Greek Jewish Community that was new and fascinating. The time spent on our tour with him was some of the best time we had while in Athens.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Jewish Heritage Tour with Daniel. We began at the Jewish Museum, then visited the Synagogues. Throughout the day, Daniel described the long history of Jewish life in Greece. He has great knowledge of the subject and presented it in a lively,...More

We were four couples who contacted Haim before we left on a cruise, and we were not disappointed. He is a rabbi who also escorts people to all Jewish sites in and around Athens. He and his family go back many generations to Greece and...More
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a
sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
