Born in Athens, I soon realized that there were far more stimulating challenges outside the capital – so in 2000 when I was accepted into the department of Greek Archaeology at university, I left the city never to return! During my studies, I decided to make my dream come true and enrolled in the Public School of Tourist Guides. For more than a decade, I has spent time on archaeological research and tourism – I therefore, as a professional tourist guide and an experienced traveler myself, understand exactly what it takes to make your trip a unique experience.... like a real insider.
A guide can create your itinerary, arrange your accommodations and transportation and even probably save you money.
A guide can take you to places that you would never know about.
A good guide can tell you all the best places frequented by the locals and how to experience your trip as a true insider.
A guide will explain and make sense of what you are looking at. He/She will make what may seem as a pile of stones come alive! He/She can answer questions about anything that sparks your curiosity.
When hiring a tourist guide when abroad, you will always have your personal connection in that country. You can always contact your guide and inquire information, refer your friends or book your next trip easily and hassle-free, while saving a whole lot.
Licensed guides by the Greek Ministry of Tourism can be recognized by the badge they have to wear when on duty.
The hassles of obtaining tickets, making reservations, checking operating hours are easy for a good tour guide. A good guide might bring you to an attraction in the morning before the crowds arrive, or arrange for a private, after-hours tour.
An educated tour guide can offer a depth of experience and knowledge to which no guidebook, audio guide or plaque-reading will come even close.
