    I did the hills of Athens walking tour with Magda and Yiannis. This was honestly one of the best tours I ever had. They were so informative and friendly. I learned so much about the different sites and enjoyed the beautiful sunset with them. They also shared some bits about local life with me. Overall, I highly recommend this tour especially with these two lovely guides!
