The guide cancelled and told us we would receive reimbursement for the non-tour. We have received no acknowledgment of this by you nor a credit to our account. Please acknowledge directly to me. Dori Katz

Irini was terrific. She's funny, vivacious, energetic and obviously loves her city and neighborhood. She took us into narrow alleys, where we met some of the residents, to out-of-the way monuments, pocket churches, and beautiful graffiti walls, to stalls in the central market, where every vendor seemed to know her, and to hidden bistros, where locals go for drinks, music and conversation. If you want to know the Plaka and Monastraki districts better, walking with Irini is a must.

Our guide was very good - only problem we had was trying to find somewhere to eat in an area that she had recommended as most of it was closed due to the students being on holiday. Apparently it is cheap and buzzing when they are there.

Irini was a great guide, both telling us local history while guiding us through secret hideaways in Plaka, and showing us things off the beaten path private rooftop view, suggestions of cafes, a more scemice, easier route from Plaka to the Acropolis entrance. She is charming and can bring you to everything from hipster cafes favored only by locals to routes with less/slower walking for the less able. Since she is from a local family, she's a fount of accurate info, and even brought us homemade Epiphany cookies. When we needed a recommendation the next day, she was accessible by phone to help. Very highly recommened: flexible, affable, and fluent in most European languages. Great in English and French for us.

Fantastic tour! Great opportunity to see both the non-touristy places and the hidden touristy places in Athens. That authentic local experience everyone looks for when they travel. A great way to start your time in Athens as you will get some insider tips to enhance your time there. Irini is very personable and makes you feel like a friend. She also asks you your personal interests so she can customize the tour for you. Incredible value for a private guide.
