Kompetenter,liebenswürdiger ,lokaler Guide. Viele zusätzliche Hintergrundinfos wurden uns frei Haus gegeben und eine tolle Betreuung. Für eine 3 stündige Tour wurden angepasste Angebote an persönliche Preferenzen und körperliche Konstitution gemacht. Selbst in Zeiten von Corona war Nähe spürbar. Vielen Dank dafür.

Прекрасная экскурсия! Рекомендую всем любителям стритарта и не только. Хорошая возможность побывать в разных районах Афин и взглянуть на них под новым углом

Such a good experience with Kalliopi and Thomas! They teach us how to give attention to a lot of details that we wouldn't see alone and they bring us an original reading of the city. I recommend this experience both to discover different athenian neighbourhoods and to improve your graffiti-knowledge.

Kalliopi took us for a fantastic tour, we learnt a lot about the neighbourhoods and about street art and local and international artists. Kalliopi is very friendly and knowledgeable. If you want to stroll around in neighbourhoods out side of the tourist areas, stop for a delicious ice cream and finish the tour at the best souvlaki place in Athens, this is the tour for you!

I read about Street Art in the in-flight magazine on the flight to Athens and was excited to take this tour. I never would have found some of the murals Kalliopi showed me if I'd set out on my own. She was able to explain the evolution of street art in the city and answered all my questions. She also knows some of the artists. It is a 3-hour walk and we stopped about halfway through for a coffee and ended with souvlaki. If you want to learn a bit about recent history of Greece through art and current culture, take this tour.

Having done similar tours in other cities, I was surprised at the level of knowledge, passion, commitment to the community and generosity of time and spirit of Kalliopi and Thomas. Even if you aren’t interested in the topic, I would take this tour —it certainly amazed me.

I had a really nice experience with this for me more untraditional walking tour. I find it a very nice way to discover street art in Athen, that I did’nt know were so common and also learn about the city, it’s history and political situation. I really recommened as a part of your visit in the city!

Loved this tour, and definitely plan to do more arts-based activities in the future. This is a great way to learn about the history of Athens and cultural and political movements. Plus, Kalliopi has a personal connection to a lot of the art which was great to learn.

BEST EXPERIENCE IN ATHENS - do this first when traveling! Popi was so kind, clearly passionate about street art and Athens history, and a great host of this experience. Popi walked us all over Athens sharing stories about artists, the culture behind street art, and the connection to Athens political/social existence. I learned so much more than expected about the city, food, things to see, and history. This is the perfect way to start your visit in Athens as Popi will tell you everything (and answer all the questions - I asked a lot!) and you’ll feel prepared to continue exploring while also having this new insider knowledge about street art and Athens culture. Thank you Popi!

Popi was super passionate about the pieces she was showing us and she conveyed that throughout the tour. Passion alone, of course, doesn't make for a great tour, but Popi is also clearly very connected to the world of Street Art in Athens and the knowledge that comes from that I reckon made this tour fantastic! Added to that, Popi is a super-friendly person and she listened to people's needs/demands and accommodated them when possible. She wasn't strict when it came to scheduling and that gave our group of 6 much flexibility in choosing breaks and length of the stops. Great job Popi! Highly recommend doing the tour!

Popi was a very friendly and knowledgeable host. She was able to talk about the different graffiti artists and refer to conversations with some of them. She had a good level of knowledge of the genre and the different artists. She made parallels to other works of some of the artists created in other parts of the world. During the tour Popi was also able to provide us with very interesting information about Athens and Greece and give good recommendations for dining. At the time of our tour, the weather was very cold and windy and we took the an afternoon tour of 3 hours. Keeping the setting in mind, the tour was a bit long. Two hours or 2,5 hour would have been more than enough. However Popi was such a nice guide and provided us with an e-mail after the tour, which included a pdf with pictures of most of the pieces and others previous pieces which was so nice. I would wamely recommend a tour with Popi.

Highly recommended. The tour was well thought out, fun and insightful, and we even ran into a local artist and gallery owner who shared with us some stories behind WD Wild Drawings' "Believe in Dreams" mural. Fantastic way to explore Athens and it's vibrant as well as colourful neighborhoods.

This is a really unique way to see the real Athens. Thomas lead us around some really cool neighborhoods/markets and gave us great tips on where to have the best local food and drinks. He was really well informed about the artists and did a fantastic job placing the art in social and political context. He ended by treating us to a fantastic souvlaki and even followed up Thomas with an email full of recommendations for the rest of our stay. Top notch and highly recommended for anyone who appreciates authentic experiences!

My experience with Popi was lovely, she is very genuine and really seeks to make the most of the tour. Not only did I get to see beautiful art, she showed me around the city streets and I have a very cool understanding of the districts in the city and where to go for good souvlaki, I would do it again :)
