I did the the street art tour with Niko and give it five stars! This tour took in some neighbourhoods I would not have otherwise visited which was great. We were also joined on this tour by AA guide, Laura, who was enjoying the tour for the first time. She was warm and engaging and if I had more time in Athens would have loved to have done one of her tours! Will recommend Alternative Athens to everyone I know! Kristie, Australia

What a great way to explore some of the less known territories of Athens! As someone who's been to Athens numerous times, this tour was a real eye-opener. Vassia the guide was fabulous! She is very knowledgeable while still being friendly and fun. I enjoyed her presentation and the amount of very exciting Greek street art we saw throughout the tour. It's a small group size tour at a good pace and great value for money. Highly recommend! Yoniti, France

In recent years I've made it a habit to take local art tours as it's an off the beaten way to learn something of the current life. This one with Tania was superb. Tania is extremely knowledgeable not just of the art and artists, but also of the placement of the works in contemporary Athens/Greek political and social history. She also referenced more distant history, broadening the context. But the tour is anything but dry. Her enthusiasm is infectious. I highly recommend it. Iah06, France

As an Art student, I was very curious to learn about street art development in my own city. Thus, I booked the Athens Street Art Walk for me and my brother, who hesitated, in the beginning, feeling that a three-hour tour about street art of our city would be boring. But to the contrary, it was extremely interesting and we were impressed by the fact that we learned so many new things about Athens. Nikos, our guide, created a great atmosphere in the team as well as shared with us his profound knowledge about street art and artists. Last but not least, the tour is suitable and interesting both for individuals with or without artistic background. Marianna.
