I was born and raised in Athens, studied at the School of Guides for three years, I have been working since 2000 and enjoy every day of it!
I love meeting new people from different places, showing them the city of athens, the cradle of civilisation and all the beauties of Greece, adopting to their needs and creating a unique, depending on their interests, program.
The languages I am licensed to guide are english, french and portuguese.

Highly recommend Anna. She was very responsive to all emails when we were setting up the trip, set a meetup location, was prompt and did an excellent job guiding three of us round all the major ancient sights of ancient Athens. She's engaging and helpful, and took some great pictures of the group with our cameras. She also gave us advice about great restaurants and other sights to see on the rest of the trip. Definitely a great guide.

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:
If you are on a cruise ship that docks at the port of Athens so you only have a few hours at your disposal and you want to make sure that you visit the highlights but avoid the crowds on the other hand, if you are on a business trip but want to take advantage of your free time, contact me in advance so to make the best of it.
During your staying, I will guide you at the most important monuments and museums, stroll in the old part of the town called Plaka, taste the fabulous starters and specialties of Greek cuisine at a traditional taverna and talk about history, mythology, customs and modern life so as to get the most of your staying.
I can pick you up from your hotel or your cruise ship by taxi or a mini van, drive to the center of Athens, visit the ancient marble stadium used for the first modern Olympic games in 1896 and the finish of the marathon race, see the changing of the guards at the constitution square (syntagma) in front of the parliament, the Academy of fine arts, the University of Athens, the national library, the national garden, visit the temple of Zeus, the Arch of Handrian and of course the Acropolis of Athens with the masterpiece of Greek architecture, the Parthenon.
If you are interested in art and sculpture, your day will not be complete unless you visit the new Acropolis museum with the famous gallery of the Parthenon.
If you plan to come to Greece, don't waste time! Together we can organize the tour that you had imagined...
Transportation by tour guide:
I can provide transportation either with a private vehicle if you are a party of two with an extra charge, or by taxi, or a 17-seater mini van if you are a larger group of people.
For the adventurous and lucky ones that will spend many days, I highly recommend a pleasure boat or a sailing boat so as to discover the Greek islands in a unique way.

Reviews of this tour – by clients who booked!
Anna is great!! Highly recommended.
She was super helpfull with everything related to the visit, and even with some other services we needed in Athens.
Don´t hesitate to book her!!
Anna was great!!
She knew exactly how to avoid crowds. We left early and saw the Olympic Stadium, Changing of the Guards and the Acropolis before the hugh crowds. She took us where the locals go on sunday, including a flea market, where we spent some idol time shopping. Then we went to cape sounion to see the temple of Posiedon. It was absolutely beautiful. On the way back we stopped along the coast to have lunch with the locals. We enjoyed every minute!!
I would definely recommend Anna
Anna was excellent!
She met our wedding group of 25 people at our hotel with a new air-conditioned bus, and took us around the city for a tour. Then up the Parthenon to see the Acropolis and all the other incredible temples.
Anna has a great attitude, personality, and knowledge of the monuments and history of Greece- both ancient and current events!
I would highly recommend her to all visitors and guests of Greece.
