I was the only person on this tour so it was great. Theo was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great time.

Our Bohemian Side of Athens Private Tour with Theo was amazing! He’s super enthusiastic and friendly, and the tour allowed us to get to know the contemporary side of Athens. Most notably - we saw really cool street art, ate some yummy food (we even revisited one of the places he took us to the next day), and learned about the politics and culture of the neighbourhoods we walked through. We were only in Athens for a couple days, and coupled with a food tour and a tour of the Acropolis that we did the next day, we felt that this tour gave us a great sense for the city.
