      • We come to you: With so many places to see, so much history to soak in, Athens can be a bit intimidating to first-timers. So we come to where you're staying with recommendations based on your group's preferences and provide a brief orientation to your area and the larger city.
      • We walk with you: As part of a special "Welcome to" series that helps visitors get their bearings in cities around the world, this personalized tour heads to the must-see sights of your neighborhood, from ancient ruins to museums, restaurants, bars, and shopping.
      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. Known officially as "docents" (from the Latin for teacher), these local experts allow you to experience the glories of Athens with someone who lives there. Feel free to ask any questions about the city, its people, its history, and special events.
      • Your group, your tour: This private experience lets you tailor the departure time, route, and pace to the wishes of your group. The tour usually runs about two hours, but even that's flexible.

      Meeting point

      Please meet in the lobby of your downtown-area hotel or a nearby central location. Let us know the name of your hotel when you reserve this tour so we know where to meet you. Your local expert awaits with a GoBe sign with your name.

      Helpful hints

      As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind.

      Walks are held rain or shine with some variations to accommodate the weather.

      If you are running late for your meeting with our guide, we ask that you call to alert us so that we can relay the message to the guide.

      Buildings, museums, streets, and monuments can sometimes close without notice due to labor strikes, structural problems, or other civic disturbances.

      The docent who leads a given walk may become unavailable at the last minute due to illness or other unforeseen circumstance. In these cases we will seek to re-organize the walk to accommodate the change; however, our responsibility in these cases is limited and we cannot be held liable for circumstances beyond our control.

      Getting around

      Plan to walk for approximately 2 miles at a gentle pace. If your mobility is limited, this tour may be too challenging for you. This itinerary is not suitable for wheelchairs.
