The center of Ancient and Modern Greece, and the birthplace of Western culture as we know it, Athens has been built on layers of history, piled—literally—on top of each other.
With nearly 3000 years of continuous history, Athens is a marvel. Whether it's an archeological study of ancient Greek artifacts at the Acropolis, an in-depth look at the days of Socrates, or a view into contemporary Greek cuisine and politics, there’s no better place to learn than the complex maze that is the Greek capital. Discover with Context the spirit of ancient Greece on an Athens private tour or an Athens small group tour.

Athens Private Tours and Athens Small Group tours

The guides who lead our Athens private tours and Athens small group tours are archaeologists, historians, and art historians. We offer a wide array of options. Are you a family? We offer family tours, including the Acropolis For Kids, which helps to bring to life to a site that can come off as staid for younger visitors, and our Athens for Kids Tour of the National Archaeology Museum—both of which are led by our experts trained to help immerse younger audiences in the times of the ancient Greeks. Looking for something unusual? Visit Plato's Academy on our Socrates in Athens Tour, explore Byzantine Athens Churches, or discover the modern city on our Athens Architecture Tour, which dives headfirst into exposing how the different layers of history coexist, and even interact, with one another in this city. Among our favorite Athens private tours, however, is our Contemporary Athens in Context, which shines a light on contemporary politics and the ongoing impact of modern Greek history, from Nazi occupation to the financial crisis.

Our trip to Delphi with Anastasia and driver, George, was wonderful. Anastasia has such an amazing background and extensive knowledge. It was a long day but weather cooperated so we were able to see ruins at Delphi in clear. Wish we would have each had a copy of the original site (one is in the Delphi museum, drawing done by a French artist) as it would have helped with orientation and envisioning place in all it's splendor. Scenery around Delphi was spectacular and we loved restaurant where we went to lunch following tour. Many tour busses of students were there as well as groups and we were so glad to have our guide all to ourselves with her interesting and extensive explainations. Your communications with us for the three consecutive days of touring were excellent as well. While this tour seemed expensive, in the end we realized how worth the investment was! Many thanks
Our guide Dionysios was excellent. We could not have been more pleased with the whole experience.
Youli was fantastic—extremely knowledgeable, personable, and she worked very hard the entire tour! Kudos!
