Cities where he/she works: ATHENS, Nafplio, Paros
If you happen to be in Athens from a cruiser or a lay over and your time is limited, I can make this short stay worth remembering with a customized tour of the main sights of Athens , starting with the Acropolis and the spectacular Acropolis Museum opposite, strolling through the alleys of the old town Plaka, stopping for a greek coffee or a typical meal not in the tourist stereotypes but in hidden off corners that are a real paradise for photographers and artists.
But not only the center but also the famous site of Marathon, the splendid Cape Sounio, the sanctuary of Eleusis and so many other places around Athens rarely included in organised tours, are my points of interest that I show to my guests.Those are half day tours from Athens and if there is more time I recommend the famous oracle of Apollo in Delphi 3 hrs from the capital or the southbound Canal of Corinth, ancient Mycenae and the exquisite ancient theatre in Epidaurus, all in one day.
Having studied Archaeology and History together with my passion to share my knowledge with visitors of my country has been my motivation to work as a tour guide for more than thirty years in four languages. My aspiration is to offer as much as possible in a vivid and interesting way, information on past history and present day life, on Art and politics, contemporary customs alongside ancient Greek principles of Philosophy, Architecture, Theater, Art in general.
I have guided in all corners of continental Greece as well as the Greek islands, on sailing boats and big cruisers as a lecturer parallel to guiding in ports of call. But above all I love sharing the beauty of nature and human achievements of my country with individuals of all ages, families and small groups, customized tours according to interests, time available, age group and special needs of private visitors. My long experience makes me better understand wishes and attitudes of tourists, I am flexible and have a sense of humor. Actually I enjoy myself immensely doing this job, and this enthusiasm is something all my visitors catch along as well.P
