Very good tour with Pascal showed us the beautiful parts of Athens and food was eaten with the locals Delicious new dishes. Tasting of olives, olive oil, coffee and many other tasty things. Do not hesitate book the tour. We had a private tour, because unfortunately there are tourists due to the Corona change, but "top guy" heard and learned a lot of new things. Thanks again Pascal on our behalf. Greetings Brigitte and Mika

Small tour. The guide Pascal is friendly. I took a walk in Athens the day before, but it was difficult to enter a small shop, so I hurriedly applied for a local tour. Recommended because you can easily know the charm of Athens. Even I, who doesn't seem to be at Eiken Level 2, could hear more than half.
