Athens Walking Tours wins international distinctionFor yet another year, Athens Walking Tours ranked first in traveller ratings by world leading online tourism organization Viator

For yet another year, Athens Walking Tours ranked first in traveller ratings by world leading online tourism organization Viator. Athens Walking Tours won Viator's 2016 Top Rated Award, with the international organization declaring its enthusiasm for this top award won by a Greek operator. Athens Walking Tours receivec 674 customer reviews for their tours, 94% of which were 5 * and 4 *.

Founded in 1995, Viator is the most venerable and polished of the tour-and-activity sites. It lists 15,000 options, from walking tours to whale-watching trips, in 1,000 destinations across more than 150 countries. In 2012, this San Francisco-based operation also began selling shore excursions, or land-based trips for cruise-goers to take advantage of when their ships dock at port. Rather than pay for the generally more expensive cruise line-organised trips, travellers can pay up to 60% less and enjoy a broader selection of choices by booking through Viator, a site that also comes in several foreign-language versions: Japanese, Portuguese, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian and Swedish. The site also leads by providing more than 360,000 user-generated reviews of its tours and activities on offer – about three times more than other sites.
