Nuestra visita a Atenas nos entusiasmo y con el fotografo Vasilis, fue verdaderamente original, nos indico los mejores sitios para cenar y los monumentos desde su punto de vista, son mas hermosos y maravillosos. Un acierto el contratar este guia. Muchas Gracias de Pepe Rubio

I had a superb tour with the very knowledgable Vasilis today. As already noted his English, sense of humour, knowledge of the city, and enthusiasm for photography (and showing off the best of his city) are second to none. He immediately put me at my ease and once I began to share my photos he was full of ideas and subtle coaching to suggest better places to stand, or angles to use, or how to pick just the right moment to take my next photo. Athens is one of those places that seems to be on every traveller’s wish list – it makes sense to spend that ambition wisely by being with a guide as pleasant and expert as Vasilis. I’m wondering now if I can make time for another tour later in the week – I enjoyed it that much.

We had a fabulous time doing this tour with Vasilis. He showed us all the top spots in Athens to photograph, along with teaching and showing us all about our cameras. We were all enthusiastic armature photographers and the techniques he taught us were amazing and educational. He was kind, friendly and always up for answering questions. I highly recommend this tour whether you are solo, a couple or a group of people.

I loved this tour Vasilis is an Athenian and very knowledgeable about photography and his city.
I’m not the most confident photographer but Vasilis helped me with compositions and showing me how to use some of the controls on the camera that I was too scared to use. Would I do this tour again? Yes, without a doubt!!!!

I had to have a 2 day trip to Athens and among my work obligations I definitely wanted to photograph some of Athens’s picturesque spots and main attractions, as a passionate amateur photographer that I am!
Having not enough time to walk and discover the city myself, I chose PhotoWalksinAthens.com and I didn’t regret it at all!
Vassilis took me to all the beautiful spots of the area of Athens under and around the rock of Acropolis, through a very scenic route with a lot of photo opportunities along the way. While I was free and loose to do my thing, Vassilis revealed to me the right angle from the proper spot, to make a perfect travel shot. He would answer any of my questions, explain to me all the photography rules and technical details in a very simple and practical way making clear in my mind things I was confused with before!
Vassilis is a great resource of tips and hints about the city, too! I used his suggestions for my time in Athens and I didn’t regret it!
I enjoyed my time with PhotoWalksinAthens.com (and Vassilis’ humor!); I learn a lot about this historic city and came away with impressive travel shots and new techniques to use on my future travels!
