What to Expect
Get out of the tourist loop and discover Athens as it exists for the locals on this unique tour of the city.

Start the day at the Syntagma square at noon and walk along the bustling shopping district, stopping at a traditional coffee house along the way to partake in some backgammon and drink a cup of Turkish coffee or an ouzo with meze while you play. Then make your way to some of the traditional shops in the city, including a coffee grinder, a barber shop, and a tailor shop, stopping to speak with the owners and observe them while they work.

Relax over a traditional Greek lunch at a local music tavern and feast on delicacies such as the potato-based moussaka and the sweet-as-sugar baklava. After lunch, enjoy a stroll through the Monastiraki, or traditional flee market, and then stop in at a cafe for a coffee and a sweet before your visit to a traditional kompoloi’s store to discover how traditional music instruments are made.

Return to the hotel for a 4-hour rest and then meet up at 22:00 o'clock for a night of dancing with local Athenians at a live-music tavern.
