We have been to Athens, the Acropolis, and the Acropolis Museum several times before, but this time we took a tour with Onoufrios. It was fantastic. He does a wonderful job conveying the historical,
Archaeological, and linguistic importance of everything we saw. We loved It and couldn’t recommend him more. Will definitely be back to hire him for other tours.
Four of us booked Onoufrios for a 3 day tour of Athens and surrounding areas. He is extremely knowledgeable and truly a fun person to spend time with. Be sure to book the Corinth Canal day which included super driver, George. He treated us like royalty! Look no further. This is the guide that you want. Check out Onoufrios' website.
We hired Onoufrios for a private 1/2 day tour of the Acropolis and surrounding areas. He met us on time, and did an amazing job of keeping us away from the crowds while we toured. He was knowledgeable but more importantly, he was personable and so enthusiastic. Not only did he give us an excellent tour, he also suggested restaurants and other places to visit. Highly recommend!!
Onoufrious' expert commentary made our day in Athens as much about the people of ancient Greece as the architecture. He had a special way of conveying visual details to help us understand and retain the historical timelines. We also did his Corinth, Mycenae, Epidaurus and Nafplio Private Tour, which augmented and reinforced what we learned in Athens. Since we had heard numerous times "This is a replica--the original is in Athens", we squeezed the National Archaeological Museum Private Tour in on our last day. He found many interesting artifacts in a rather stody museum. Highly recommended.

It doesn’t get more private and personal than this, as I am not an agency and I don't arrange packages.

I have a profound love for Greece and I enjoy giving awareness tours to people who really want to learn, who are interested in art, history, local culture, politics and want to have a nice time.
If you are not interested, if you are looking for a shopping/eating tour or if people call you high-maintenance, I am definitely (not probably) not the right guide for you.

Once upon a time, Αθήνα used to be the centre of... everything!
It was the birthplace of Democracy; home to philosophers, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle; it gave birth to theatre itself. There's a reason why it was called the 'School of Greece'.
This is indeed where Europe and 'Western Civilization' began!
Below are my suggestions.
Of course the tours can be customised according to your needs!
* The meeting point is always a pre-designated spot.
I do not provide hotel pick-up or drop-off unless it's a day trip including a vehicle.
