Meeting point

Syntagma metro station - exit towards Panepistimiou

On arrival

We will meet outside Syntagma metro station, exit towards Panepistimiou. There is a big metro sign in front of a GB Corner store, that's where you'll see me. I want to keep our groups to a reasonable size for everyone to enjoy the experience, so booking is STRONGLY advisable.

If you're coming by foot, head towards Syntagma, to the left of the square (looking towards the Parliament) you will find the Hotel Grande Bretagne, turn the corner on Venizelos/Panepistimiou street, and you'll find the metro sign in front of the Gb Corner store.

If you cannot join the tour, I kindly ask you to free up space for another guest

So please cancel, by clicking the link "Cancel My Booking" at the bottom of the confirmation form in case you cannot make it, that also helps me know how many guests to expect

Things to note

Make sure to bring comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and enough water for the road. We will pass by kiosks but make sure you come prepared ;)

Free Cancellation

You are free to cancel a booking anytime. We kindly remind you to cancel bookings you cannot arrive for. Being reported as absent decreases your customer level points and the benefits you can enjoy.
