I am an Official Tourist Guide licensed by the Greek Ministry of Tourism. If you are looking for a private tour, it doesn’t get more private and personal than this, as I am not an agency but an individual guide. Keep in mind that only official guides are allowed to give tours. You can recognize us by the blue badge that we are required to wear.
Αθήνα (Athens in Greek) is where I give most of my tours. In ancient times, the capital of modern Greece used to be pretty much the centre of.. everything! It was the birthplace of Democracy; all the famous philosophers, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, lived and founded schools here; theatre was also born in this city-state as a religious ceremony and that's where most of the tragedies, such as Oedipus, where performed for the first time ever! This is indeed where what we call 'western civilization' began...
For all of those reasons and more, allow yourselves a few days in Athens so that you can take it all in and visit its numerous museums (including two of the world's most important ones: the National Archaeological Museum and the Acropolis Museum), hills (Lycabettus, Pnyka, Philopappou), plenty of sites, cafés and restaurants in the old town called Plaka or other hip modern areas in the centre or by the sea.
So please don't treat this wonderful city as just a stop before you head to Greece's beautiful islands.
The tours can be customised according to your needs and interests to make your time in Athens as enjoyable and enlightening as possible!
