Athens Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 680 )
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.

My tour with Georgia was like an excellent college seminar - a true 2-way intellectual experience. She did a great job employing the Socratic method while discussing Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. The venue for this tour is in a residential neighborhood, not downtown. As a result, there are few taxis circulating nearby when the tour ends. Might be a good idea when sending confirmation and meeting instructions to customers to let them know in advance that Uber doesn’t operate here, so they should book a pick up taxi in advance.
Panos is great. Very able to adapt the tour to different interests. And amazingly engaging. Best tour guide ever!
Demetra is a superior guide. One recommendation for Context, not specific to this tour: your customers pay ALOT of money to go on a Context tour, far more than standard local tours. You know that. So…….would it break Context’s heart to include the cost of museum tickets in the package?
