Are you tired of traditional city sightseeing and boring
walking tours?

Then this is the tour for you! 

At the beginning of the tour, your local guide Lorenzo will show you how to use a vintage Polaroid camera.

We then help you find the very best angles to create your own meaningful photo souvenirs! No previous photography knowledge needed!

On your sightseeing tour, you’ll get to know the many faces of Athens. Starting in the oldest parts, under the iconic Akropolis hill, we make our way to the Athens market area. This is where the true life of this amazing city takes place.

We will also see some of the most famous classical buildings in the city center.

Lorenzo will give you many tips to discover the hidden corners and local places to make your stay in Athens memorable!

You will discover why Polaroid photography is still important in this digital age, when we are used to having endless pictures available at our fingertips.

While many of your photos gather “digital” dust on your phone or camera, with us, you will create tangible souvenirs of your trip.

Slow down and experience the city in a whole new way. Look at the scene in front of you, carefully frame your shot, and capture a meaningful moment on a Polaroid picture.
