This tour, the city of Athens and especially our guide Stelios: Everything was great! we were able to let the pleasantly warm summer wind blow around our ears in the beautiful surroundings while we were guided from one exciting place to another. Even if my English skills are rather modest, I understood most of it and learned a lot about the history and the present of this place. I loved everything, thank you very much!

Great experience with Dimitris. Fantastic advice on touring Athens, food to try, and places to go, and how to approach exploring Greece. Gave personalized advice on exploring the islands that really helped make the trip wonderful, like Naxos and Icarus for water sports (fantastic recommendations). Beautiful ride, strongly recommend. Also they let me charge my phone in the office after it died during the ride!

We took an evoke tour through Athens. Even though we had explored many spots in the city there were still some that were new to us. It’s a beautiful way to acquaint yourself with the city or gain a different perspective. Our entire family of 5 said they loved it!
