Overview

A tour to Lycabetus hill, Athens historical center, Piraeus port, Athens Riviera and the sunset at temple of Poseidon in Sounio.

It’s nice to be a time traveler in a city like Athens!

Athens is the oldest and most historic city in Europe. It is not only the city of the ancient philosophers of the classical era, even though its appearance refers directly to Ancient Greece. Literally everyone “passed” through Athens, they have “passed” and left their mark, civilizations that have either “integrated” into the identity of the modern Greek or not.

It would be best to do this tour in the first few days of your stay in Athens, so you can get an overview. I will tell you about everything and you will see almost everything, so you can decide what is really worth doing or what is worth paying a ticket for.

We will also visit the port of Piraeus and its beautiful coastal neighborhoods, we will drive the entire magical route of the Athenian Riviera up to Sounio and we will stop at the most beautiful spots to see the view and take pictures . Finally, in Sounio, on a cliff, below the temple of Poseidon , you will enjoy the best sunset of Athens.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How fit do I need to be to do this trek?

Annapurna Base Camp is a Grade B or a moderately difficult trekking route. So any fit person can do this trek, even if you do not have any previous experience. You should be aware of what to expect and mentally prepare for it. Then, as long as you will too, you can.

No. There are no ATMs on this trek route. You will have to draw enough cash in Pokhara or Kathmandu. There are a number of ATMs in these cities. Everything is paid in Nepali rupees. So money should be exchanged before the start of the trek.

Yes. The Internet can be accessed in most places. Sometimes, there might be some technical problems. The Internet in Nepal is not as fast as you are used to and at times you can just lose connection.

Is it necessary to hire Guides/trekking agency for Annapurna Base Camp trekking?

Not really. It depends on you. If you want, ABC trekking can be done independently. You could hire a guide and a porter by yourself instead of going through an agency or not hire a guide at all. Although, not having a guide can be a little problematic during the offseason.

It really depends on you. Is it your first time in Nepal? How confident are you of being able to find your way around? How pressed on time are you? If you go through an agency, it will be costlier but everything will be planned. You will only have to come, trek and return.
