Hi, I'm Onoufrios!

I'm an Official Tourist Guide licensed by the Greek Ministry of Tourism. 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.

Athens (Αθήνα 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 you know, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, lived and founded schools here; theatre was also born here as a ritual to honour Dionysus and that's where most of the tragedies, such as Oedipus, where performed for the first time ever! This is indeed where the 'western civilization', as we tend to say, started...

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 museums: the National Archaeological Museum and the Acropolis Museum), hills, sites, cafes and restaurants in the old town called Plaka or other hip modern areas, and please don't just treat it as a sort of 'mandatory stop' before you head to our beautiful islands.

Athens deserves it!
