See Two Very Different Sides of Athens

Greece is the type of place where you can see ancient ruins alongside pulsating, bohemian neighbourhoods; where the old world coexists with a sort of anarchic urbanisation.

On this six-hour tour, you will admire classical landmarks and one of Europe’s trendiest neighbourhoods, all with a local guide by your side. Throw in some delicious food and a spot of shopping and you’ve got a well-balanced tour that allows you to see two very different sides of our fair city.
