Our team of Grecopaths – Alternative tourism services – cooperates with many licensed guides who speak any language you wish.
If you are looking for a detailed historical tour to the archeological sites, we offer private guided tours. Our licensed guide will inform you in detail about the history of the classical sites and unveil their secrets to you. For children or students we offer a Treasure hunt or Theatrical games based on the history/mythology of the archaeological site you just have visited with your licensed guide, to learn about it in a more easy and pleasant way. They are available on request.
Choose out of the wide range of our other activities, and combine your private guided tour with a food tasting tour of local products (olive oil, cheese, wine), hiking tour, or bicycle tour (several distances and difficulty level). Before or after your visit to the archeological site with your private licensed guide, you will be able to enjoy and explore the amazing surroundings of the archeological sites and the breathtaking nature of Greece with our local tour escorts. We will take you to non touristic places and off beaten paths. You will talk to locals; experience the Greek hospitality and the Greek way of life.
