During our 3 1/2 hour tour, we will make several stops and have plenty of time for photos. You will get to know Athens from a different point of view, passing by all the must-see locations as well as many hidden spots. It is such a fun introduction for first time visitors to reach areas that wouldn’t be possible on a bus or by foot!
