Many people consider it a luxury to travel alone, so if you get the chance, take it and enjoy it! Spend as much time as you want spoiling yourself, and do the things that will bring you delight, without having to consider what someone else wants or requires. Traveling alone and away from everyone has countless benefits. It gives you the ultimate freedom to make your travel plans according to your desires and budget.

So basically, the best tours for solo travelers in Athens are anything you put your mind to and your heart desires in terms of experiences or sightseeing.
