Athens Custom Tour
- How many hours would you like the walk to be?
- What are your main goals for the walk?
- Which sites and museums would you like to prioritize? Do you want to just pass by or explore inside as well?
- Give us one or two words to describe your group.
We can design a wide variety of walks for people with special interests, lasting from 3 hours to 3 days, and starting at €395 per group. Drawing on our network of guides, range of other services, and a growing network in Athens, the limits of a custom-walk with a Context Athens guide are circumscribed only by the bounds of our collective imagination.
We ask that you spend some time perusing our list of private and small-group tours before making a request for a customized walk.
Although trained as an architect, Nikitas lives and breathes Greek cuisine. Beginning at an early age with weekly treks to the Athenian markets with his two grandmothers, Nikitas has surrounded himself with skilled home-cooking and the specialty foods of Greece throughout his life. He has been conducting tours in his hometown for many years: what began as small walks with friends from abroad in the late 1970s have morphed into critically-acclaimed culinary adventures in Athens' central market. Nikitas' walks are equally focused on food, the people, and the city, producing a rare insider's glimpse into the food culture of Athens.
