A Family Friendly Introduction to Athens

Honestly, this is the only way to tour Athens! And if with kids, make sure you request Ariadni!!

Ariadni met us with a beautiful welcoming smile and her smile and kindness never stopped. We booked a one hour tour of Athens with our 2 small kids (5 and 7 years old). Ariadni was wonderful with our kids! She chatted away and asked them questions to keep them engaged. We toured all Around Athens - even taking a quick espresso break when thunderstorm opened up on us during our tour but that didn’t stop Ariadni.
Ariadni is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about Athens and it’s amazing history.
If just my husband and I tried to maneuver our way around Athens, we surely would end up divorced!!!
This tour is a must with Ariadni!

Highly recommended!
