INTRODUCING…

Beyond Athens (est. 2014) is a boutique DMC/ tour agency specializing in experiential tourism for small/ independent/ private groups and offering a different take on Athens and its surroundings.

Beyond Athens believes that the region of Athens is an ideal destination for city breaks or longer holidays, thanks to its mild climate and its easy-going way of life, topped with world-class monuments, a sophisticated nightlife and beaches with crystal-clear waters. It showcases the natural beauty and the rich cultural heritage of the wider Attica region in innovative and unconventional ways. Also, it seeks to highlight the local food, lifestyle and traditions.

Its offering includes outdoor activities, local gastronomy and wine tasting tours, workshops, sports activities and customised travel packages. Groups of travelers or individuals can choose between single activities, one-day tours, thematic city-breaks or longer stays, or ask for customised programs.
