Words cannot describe how thrilled I was with Nikoleta’s photography tour. Not only did she take me to some of the most famous, iconic photography spots in Athens, but also hidden treasures within the city that many tourists don’t get to see. Along the way, we discussed the city’s history and culture, giving me greater insight and appreciation for the city. If you have the slightest interest in photography, I highly recommend this tour over any other tour. It’s a fun and different way to experience and learn about Athens.

Athens in a Click is much more than a photography tour. Although it provides advice and many perfect shots, it also opens up parts of Athens that a lot of tourists don’t see. Nikoleta introduced us to beautiful backstreets, as well as the creativity and quirkiness that this warm city offers. She did so with enthusiasm, humour and energy. We were exhausted by all her information at the end of the day and couldn’t wait to go back and explore on our own, having gained background knowledge and insight in a much better way than other standard guided tours offer. It was different and fun – I even take better photos now, as evidenced by my included pic. Very good value for money, we highly recommend!
