You must book this! Athens is full of street art and graffiti, and to really understand it you need context and someone with knowledge. Our guide Penelope was excellent. So knowledgeable and easy to get along with. She had so much time for us and her passion was obvious and really added to the experience. We ended up going over the allocated time, Penelope was so passionate about showing us the beauty and complexity of the city, Brilliant tour, excellent tour guide 100/10

This was one of our favorite parts of the visit to Athens! Penelope, our guide, was well-versed in art history and gave a fun and informative tour of the street art scene in Athens. Street art is political and cultural so it gave an insight to Athens and Greek culture that we would not have received otherwise. The tour does require a lot of walking (which my partner and I enjoyed but may not work for everyone). It’s also street art, so by necessity we went to some areas that were less touristy and more sketchy, however we always felt safe and comfortable. My partner and I are both artists. We loved the seeing the different art styles and getting the background on the artists and their inspirations. The last thing to keep in mind is that street art is not protected (with the exception of some commissioned pieces) so every tour is a little different, but it also means you may see brand new art that has been painted hours before!
