Athens: Full-Day Private Tour with Personal Driver

1. Athens: Full-Day Private Tour with Personal Driver

Visit the most important sites of Athens on a city tour and learn from your personal driver who has deep knowledge of local history and knows all the information you want to hear. Enjoy an intimate Athens tour customized to the needs and interests of your group. After getting picked up in a private luxury vehicle, your sightseeing in Athens will start with the hill of the Acropolis of Athens. On the historical hill, get the opportunity to see the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Temple of the Athena Nike, the monumental gateway (Propylaea), the Erechtheum, and the famous Parthenon, the main temple dedicated to the virgin goddess Athena. Afterward, head towards the Temple of Zeus by way of Hadrian’s Arch. From there you’ll visit the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. Then, driving alongside the National Garden, witness the changing of the guard (Evzones) in front of the old palace (now the parliament house), above the central square of Athens. Get driven to Panepistimiou Street, one of the most historical streets of Athens, where you will see numerous neoclassical buildings still standing and dating back to the late 19th century. Spot the architectural trilogy of Athens: the National Library of Greece, the University of Athens, and the Academy of Athens. Then, moving into the historical center of the city, drive up the highest hill of Athens, Lycabettus Hill, where you’ll have the best panoramic view of the city, from the hill of the Acropolis of Athens to the Aegean Sea. You will be feeling hungry by now, so take a lunch break at a Greek traditional tavern with authentic Greek dishes (costs not included). After lunch, visit the two historically old neighborhoods of Athens, Plaka and Monastiraki, where the famous Andrianou Street is located. Visit a local flea market (shopping area) where you will also get to see the Roman Agora and the Tower of the Winds. Don’t miss the Ancient Greek Agora, considered the birthplace of democracy, philosophy, and free speech. In the Ancient Agora of Athens, stop at the Temple of Hephaestus, the best-preserved temple in Greece still sanding largely as it was originally built, and at a small museum housed under the Portico of Attalos. Eventually, you'll get to the New Acropolis Museum, a brand new museum opened in 2009 to host all the findings that have been excavated on the hill of the acropolis and its slopes. This museum is considered one of the best in the world.

Really fantastic experience and best activity we did in Athens Three lovely local and enthusiastic ladies welcome you into their kitchen and great hosts very relaxed beautiful . We enjoyed the slow pace of making our Greek lunch with nice wine and drinks . It’s a great way to learn more about the city and most of all the welcoming , charming and great hospitality of our Athenian hosts We went at lunch time and timing was just right They also offer wine pairings and we will return to do that next time we visit Athens Just brilliant and made our holiday feel really special and memorable

On the tour I learned a lot about the more well-known and above all the lesser-known Athens, which you won't find in the travel guide. Street art, hidden corners, cozy backyards... Lots of tips for going out complete the overall impression.

We enjoyed our tour. We would never have found all the interesting street art by ourselves. It was a very worthwhile tour and took you beyond the acropolis-centric experience of Athens.

Exceptional guide. Full of knowledge about everything - history, culture, politics. Very special experience.

Everything was amazing! Nice guide , interesting excursion. If u like street art you will like this!
