Together we can customise your tour according to your needs and interests, and make your time in Athens as enjoyable and enlightening as possible.
Sounio is the southernmost edge of the area surrounding Athens and is famous for its 5th century BC Temple of Poseidon, god of the sea. The temple, which still retains its original white colour, is perched on a cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea and offers breathtaking views as well as one of the most popular sunsets in the world!

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

Αθήνα (Athens in Greek) is where I give most of my tours. In ancient times, Greece's capital used to be pretty much the centre of.. everything! It was the birthplace of Democracy; famous philosophers, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, lived and founded schools here; theatre was also born in this city-state as a ritual 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. (Yees, Athens also has a lot of beaches and it's very close to actual islands!)
So don't treat this wonderful city as just a stop before you head to Greece's beautiful islands...
