We had a really nice tour with Demetra! We were a group of 17 guys (stag party) and did a four hour tour consisting of the Acropolis, street art and beer tasting. The tour guide was very knowledgeable - lots of fun facts - and at the same time very relaxed. This is a great option for anyone looking to discover Athens in a fun and authentic way.

Went to Athens over spring break this year which was just before the Greek Orthodox Easter but around our Easter time when schools are closed. It was fabulous! We worked with Phoebe to schedule two walking tours. Phoebe was very responsive (unlike some other tour companies I reached out to that never responded)The guides were well versed in history/art and culture (one a professor-the other an art history major) and encouraged us to think about what we saw. We had a 13 year old daughter with us who learned some things. It was educational for us all. I would highly recommend (better than trying to read all the plaques, explored areas we might have ignored on our own). And more personal. Truly a great experience! Highly recommend! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

We did 2 Big Olive Walks and they were excellent! The first was an all day tour if the ancient sights including the ancients sights, Acropolis and museum. Demitra, our guide was engaging and fun the be around. She was full of information but not overwhelming in a boring lecture way. Our teens were engaged as well. The second day we did an incredible food tour with Illas. Food was a perfect vehicle for understanding Athens and Greece. We take a lot of toys and theses were some of the best ever.

What a great tour. Firstly we explored parts of Athens that aren't on the normal tourist trail (certainly not ours, anyway!) with someone knowledgable and passionate about the city. But what we loved most was the fact that we went down side streets and into food shops we'd never have gone into... why would you when you didn't recognise any of the food displayed! And tried some absolutely delicious food we'd never have attempted otherwise. All as part of a relaxed stroll with a knowledgable guide. Big Olive staff were also very responsive. I'd recommend this as a tour (and Big Olive as a tour company); a way of seeing and tasting a different side of Athens.

We were a group of architects and undergraduate students of architecture (in total 14 people). We both had a tours with Ilias and Nikos, both were excellent. They are great experts and guides who can tailor their tours according to the interests of the groups. Highly recommended.
