After a long flight from the States, we wanted to start off our Athens trip with a bang. The Twilight Athens Small Group Tour was the perfect introduction. Our guide Maeva was awesome with her nervous fivesome. She kept up the conversation about life in the big city and answered all our questions. We ate in small out of the way places and enjoyed many local libations. We also learned where to return for lunch the next day. Go ahead and take the tour. Jump in with both feet!
I only spent a weekend in Athens and thought it best to maximise my time and book onto the Twilight tour hosted by Urban Adventures. It was probably the best decision I ever made.
Luckily (for me) the couples who were also booked in had to cancel due to flight delays, which meant I had a one on one tour with Maeva.
Having extensive knowledge of Athens, Greek culture, industry, architecture and cuisine being able to pick her brain about all these and more was very insightful.
It was also brilliant to be treated to stories about certain buildings and and #39;superstitions and #39; (the phone hanging from a wire!)...
...I and #39;m not going to give it all away (sorry if you like spoilers!) but I can say that Maeva was very conscientious and made sure all the food, wine, seating etc at the bars and restaurants were top notch. It felt like being out with a friend who had a VIP card and let you in on the secrets of Athens!
I have a greater appreciation of the city and if I had more time would have booked onto the morning Walking tour and the Bohemian tour as well.
I highly recommend this tour, and if you and #39;re lucky enough to have Maeva as your guide, be rest assured that you and #39;re in good hands and won and #39;t be disappointed.
I great opportunity to spend time with someone that has a deep understanding of Greek culture. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what it is like to live in Athens at this time. She took us to some great spots and had some good drink and food.
Very easy to book online. The driver was waiting with my name on a sign on the other side of customs and the car was right at the curb. Exactly what you and #39;d want for airport transportation.
I and #39;ve done many tours in many countries but this one stands out. Rebecca, Mike and Gina are such an amazing team. This is not about tourist attractions, it and #39;s an authentic experience that takes you through nightlife in Athens from the Athenians point of view. and you end up with new and awesome friends.
I really enjoyed my time on this tour. I was the only one so it ended up being a private tour, so I think she prob modified it a bit to my taste. The last stop had live traditional music, not sure if that was supposed to be the bouzoukia place or not, but it was fun. Overall a good night out.
Good fun. Worth doing though for the cost- more food would have been appreciated.
