We met our tour guide, Charlotte Mich, near the main markets of Athens and she took us through the meat and fish areas as well as the antiquities area and streets with spices, oils and herbs. There was so much to see and she was really informative and engaging in all we saw.

Dear Caitriana, We are so happy to read, that your exploration of the Athens with Urban Adventures, was an interesting experience and that you got a "flavour" of our city. We take pride in sharing an authentic "Greek Taste" of our cuisine and culture, which for us, are almost inseparable. Thank you so much, for taking the time to review our Tour and we can only hope, that it was only an "appetizer" and you will visit Greece in the near future. Sunny Regards from Charlotte and Urban Adventure Team.
