Athens Private and Small Group Walking Tours

( 855 )
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.

Everything worked perfectly, from booking, to Panos
Panos was super. Energetic, knowledgeable and amiable
Our walking tour with Panos was one of the highlights of our two-week time in Greece, and that's saying a lot coming from someone who has dreamed of coming here since I was probably ten years old. We were not only immersed in the daily life of ancient Athenians as told through archaeology, but we also had the most engaging and stimulating discussions with Panos as we took in the energy of the space around us. It was an absolute privilege to be able to experience the archaeological sites of Athens with someone as intelligent yet approachable and accommodating as Panos. This was a tour that made me feel, more profoundly than ever before, the joy of learning about things you're passionate about. I think that experience is priceless, honestly.
