Explore the vibrant Athenian spirit by exploring the most “hidden” places in Athens, where tourists rarely venture.

Learn about the difficulties the homeless people in Athens face, and the impact that both the economic and refugee crisis had on the city.This tour is not just about the struggles of the homeless, however--see the perseverance of Greek spirit through hard times as you see how locals have fun and let loose in the city at night. With Tasos' guidance, you will be introduced to an Athens far off the beaten path from the typical tourist sites.
