Christina Karantani Private tour guide in Athens - Greece

Christina Karantani

Guide profile:

I am an official tourist guide for the last 20 years and it went so fast that I find it hard to believe it. Guiding all over Greece, has been an unforgettable journey. It is always a great pleasure and a privilege to show my country and especially Athens,the city i was born and lived most of my life.

Greece has many hidden treasures. However if you don't have the luxury of time we could make the best out of the few days or even hours you can spend.From a short visit to the Acropolis of Athens to a long well planned day around the most important monuments.

During our tour we will visit all major sites of Athens and I will try to give you all the historical background of this charming country!

Christina was great!! She adapted to our schedule on the fly knowing we had seen a few things the prior day, and was happy to make recommendations for restaurants and other parts of Greece to see! We had a recommendation to try a little coffee shop in one area of town and she made sure we got to stop! She was extremely knowledgeable and provided great insight to everything we saw! Would recommend to anyone looking to learn more than what they can read on the signs at the big attractions!

Christina was excellent. Very professional and knowledgable. We very much enjoyed our morning with her. She was also very helpful in recommending and booking a restaurant for the evening.

Christina was a fantastic guide for our family. She was wonderful with our kids (13 and 14) and kept them engaged all day. She was extremely helpful with her vast knowledge and was accommodating to any requests we had. Highly recommended!!

Christina is truly remarkable guide. She is incredibly knowledgeable, but also very kind and very patient. I think we are difficult clients, but she has adjusted her pace to us. Which has made the experience even more enjoyable. I learnt more about Greece and Greek cu

lture in the first hour with Christina that I have from all the books I've read. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking the best guide in all of Athens.

Christina is awesome! She knew how to condense a lot of info in the little amount of time we had.

And she was funny!

5 stars CJ C. 16 Jun 2017

Christina was amazing! She kept in touch prior to our tour and made us feel at ease as to where and when to meet.

She was prompt to meet us at our hotel and began the tour. Her knowledge of the Acropolis, the Museum and the Athens sites was incredible. She also had tremendous knowledge of Greek history. Had we done this on our own, we definitely would not have gotten as much out of it as we did. It was the quickest 6 hours I have ever spent touring, and I didn't want it to end. I would recommend Christina to anyone looking for a 10 star, perfect tour of Athens!!! Well worth the money and truly the only way to see Athens!

Thanks Christina!

We booked a 6 hour tour of Athens for my family of 5. Christina was very prompt at returning emails and providing a customized experience for us. She knows how to avoid the crowds and cover alot of ground. We learned not only about ancient Greece but modern Greece as well. We enjoyed a wonderful traditional greek meal in the city market area.

We came into Piraeus on a cruise. Took the X80 Express Bus (4E/24 hours) which stops at the Akropolis and Syntagma square to meet Christina. Very easy.

Touring with Christina is like instant close family, and I was well cared for all day. We had a wonderful October day touring Athens and enjoying our good lunch together. Christina is an expert guide with tremendous knowledge of Athens, Greece, history, customs, culture, and was delightful to be with and listen to right from the start of our tour. Great photographer and driver, too! I would happily tour with her again. She is the true spirit of all good things Greek! Thanks, Christina!

Christina gave us a fantastistic experience of the Akropolis. She's highly knowledgeable and easy going; a good story teller with great people skills.

5 stars Dave H. 24 May 2015

We had a wonderful tour with Christina. She is extremely knowledgeable about Greek history and very easy to understand. We toured the Acropolis and Archeological Museum and got detailed explanations along the way. We definitely recommend Christina.

5 stars Steen K. 15 May 2015

We were looking for a guide, who could show my wife and I not only the tourist areas but also where the locals live, work and eat. We wanted someone with insight into what was currently happening in Athens. We communicated with several guides and chose Christina Karantani. She was well prepared and did a fabulous job. Having spent time with Christina we feel that we are well equipped to partake in discussions about what's happening just now.

5 stars Beth B. 30 Jun 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Christina. She was friendly, fun and extrememly knowledgeable. She took us to the Acropolis Museum where we had an overview of what we would see when we finally got to the Acropolis. It was a wonderful way to understand everything we were going to be seeing. We broke our tour into two days, one 4 hour tour in the morning before it got too hot and one 4 hour tour late in the day. I would recommend this. We would definitely recommend Christina.

5 stars Angela R. 06 Aug 2013

Christina was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Greek history and culture - and fluent in English. We did a wonderful walking tour, and since we added a van to pick us up from the cruise ship, she also guided us on a city tour. She "shepherded" the six of us (adults) throughout Athens on a tour that we rank as one of our best ever. Take a private tour with Christina- do not settle for the "big group" tours. She will accommodate your needs while leading you through Athenian history.

5 stars Henry K. 31 May 2013

Christina is outstanding. My family of four spent two days in Athens in May 31/June 1st for our first visit to Greece and were lucky to have Christina: 1. She is extremely knowledgeable. Tour of Acropolis and Archeological Museums were outstanding as we focused on essential items and she gave a very detailed explanations. 2. She is articulate and spoke excellent english. 3. She is flexible and patient. My youngest was tired/ bit grumpy the last day but Christina's good humour saved the day.

Fantastic guide..! Pitched it perfectly for both us and our seven year old twins. She was so thoughtful and understood how much we needed to know. Our trips included the highlights but also unscheduled stops such as delicious Frozen Greek Yoghourt..! We learnt masses and had a wonderful time with Christina. We would recommend her wholeheartedly :-))

From the first email, which she responded to, two months before our trip. To the last five minutes of our tour through Athens. Christina was an amazing guide and probably the best one we have ever had.

My husband and I have traveled all over the world with different guides. Some ok, some good but, never perfect. Well, we found PERFECT in Athens Greece.

Christina took us on an amazing walking tour of Athens. There was not one site we did not see. She explained the history, culture, a

We booked Christina for a 2 day tour of the Peloponnese. She picked us up at the airport and drove us to Corinth, Epadaurus, Mycenae and Olympia. We have had many guides all over the world, but Christine is extraordinary. She took it upon herself to make sure that our trip was a success, and helped us with our travel arrangements for the remainder of our trip. A really great person and exceptional guide.

Christina was absolutely wonderful!!! She is both charming and professional, her English was excellent and I was impressed with her knowledge and insights, I have always insisted "the Private Tour Guide makes the trip" and that was certainly the case this time. Thank you for your services and Good Luck!

5 stars jeroen H. 05 Apr 2010

Christina was very enjoyable and charming in the few hours we were together. I believe if we had had more time with her my wife and Christina would be the best of friends. Thank you for providing us with a few worthy facts to remember Athens by.

Good Luck with your new opportunity at, i am positive you'll be very successful.
