"I absolutely loved the pottery workshop! Pascal, who picked me up, was incredible, super knowledgeable and very sweet and so was the entire team at Art Tutu; very helpful and welcoming! Highly recommended for anyone looking for a different and unforgettable experience in Athens!" Hend S., Egypt
"I took part in the 'Make your Own Souvenir Workshop' and I created a lovely figurine that I took with me back home to New Delhi! The instructors were really helpful to me since it was my first ever pottery class. I would definitely do that again as it was a unique experience that I've never seen before in any of the countries I've visited so far!" Lakshay B., India
"This was one of the best activities we have ever done on vacation. We have been to Athens many times, seen all the museums and shopping, which we love and return many times to see. But this class gave us an opportunity to experience a side of Greece which we have never found before. It was a quiet escape from the noise to explore art with local residents. Travis, Hawaii"
"My friend and I attended this amazing opportunity and had an brilliant time crafting a pot and a figurine out of clay. Catherine led us through the steps of preparing the clay, forming our objects and decorating them in a very worthwhile 2.5 hours. We would fully recommend this activity to anyone else travelling to Athens! Bronte, Australia"
"My wife attended this workshop together with our 9-year-old son. They had a great time; expect to meet lovely locals, kind and very friendly hosts, who know very well their work. You should try this experience when in Athens! Highly recommended! Claudiu, Romania"
