The tour was a great opportunity to get to know Athens from a different perspective. We have come to neighborhoods that we would not otherwise have seen, the street art is great and Pascal told us a lot of interesting information about it. We can only recommend the tour to everyone!

This was a great experience. The guide, Pascal, spoke excellent english. Had a lot of great stories about the city and its streetart. Could answer questions about the political and social scene in Athens and Greece. Had time for questions and small-talk. Made the whole tour a great experince - we would be ready to do it any other day. He was very friendly, and we would recommend it to anyone - also if you are not into art, just go!
