Diana Stefanou Private tour guide in Athens - Greece

Diana Stefanou

Guide profile:

As a professional licensed Greek tourist guide since 1987, I guide in English, French, Italian and Greek.

It is my privilege to share with you what I've come to love and respect for over 20 years.

The Greek heritage is so abundant that it is a challenge to pass this on to my guests in the few days (or hours) that we have to share.

My city is Athens. After the Olympics of 2004, Athens has been very much improved and became among the ' hot cities in Europe'. You will find Deluxe or boutique hotels, various archaeological sites, many museums and Art Galleries. Maybe more than you may wish for. Apart from that jewellery workshops, theatres, concerts, fashion designers; all that makes Athens 'the city to be'. As a result of all this she is among the most visited cities in the world.

My Country is Greece and should you wish to visit any other part of my country besides Athens, I'd be delighted to be your host for the duration of your stay. Be it island or mainland, combining touring, fun, interesting sites and don't forget: the best restaurants. All the good hidden spots that only the native Greeks know; join me for an unforgettable tour.

Together we can make the program you desire!!!

It can be a 1 day trip to Athens, Delphi or to Corinth,Mycenae and Epidaurus, to the Saronic islands or anywhere else in Greece.We could visit one or several museums, the Synagogue in Athens, the Jewish Museum and the Areopagus Hill where Saint Paul preached Christianity for the first time in Athens.We could visit a winery or a cave or a monastery. The new Acropolis museum is a museum that you can not miss, even if you deslike museums!

Weather permitting, swim on a beautiful sandy beach and enjoy a good greek meal.

So many options and combinations can make your trip unforgettable!!!

5 stars Saman P. P. S. P. P. 31 Jul 2019

Diana was awesome. We appreciate her knowledge and experience. Couple of suggestions: provide audio assistance via bluetooth since Athens sites are crowded and noisy. 2. Sometimes guests want to do walks them selves rather than listen to the guide. So let them do it and ask them to meet at a certain time and location.

5 stars David J. 12 Jun 2019

Perfect guide for our family. Her depth of experience allowed our diverse family to all have a wonderful Greek adventure. 5 stars is not enough.

5 stars Yosef S. 08 Oct 2017

We spent a day in Athens with Diana. She is extremely knowledgeable, kind and friendly, and very attentive to her guests' requests. We very much enjoyed her knowledge and warm personality. We highly recommend her!

5 stars Steven M. 27 Aug 2017

Diana is an extremely competent, knowledgeable and friendly guide. Diana made our day in Athens a memorable occasion with a hassle free and streamlined day!

5 stars Ellen G. 24 Aug 2017

I wish we would have reviewed Diana sooner. First, she accommodated us when we needed a last minute schedule change. Next, she shared candid accounts of life in Greece. We really enjoyed hearing about her life! Most importantly, she answered all our (many!) questions about Greece and the sites we saw. Everything was tailored for our interests, and Diana made our honeymoon so special and memorable. Thanks, Diana!

5 stars preeti V. 21 Jul 2017

We had Diana for 3 hours and she was great. We had her for the Acropolis tour including the museum. she was very knowledgeable and took her time with us and answered all our questions. She had also told us that during our visit, if we had any questions to call her. We did text her with recommendations to restaurants and where to purchase olive oil from to give as gifts and she texted us back right away with suggestions.

We highly recommend her.

5 stars Michael M. 06 Sep 2016

Very informative, engaging, and just amiable. We had one person who walked slowly, needed rest stops, and Diana was able to manage that while keeping the rest of us engaged. Very knowledgeable about classical hx and the new Acropolis Museum collection.

5 stars James Z. 26 May 2016

Excellent guide, very personable & knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Diana.

5 stars Charles D. 11 Aug 2015

We were a large group (28) so even before we arrived Diana had made arrangements to ensure the day went as smoothly as possible with our own bus and a mixture of driving and walking that perfectly suited our needs. Diana was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We especially enjoyed our visit to the Parthenon Museum where she gave us a detailed account of the history and the artefacts. With time to walk through the market and a superb restaurant for lunch she made our time truly memorable!

5 stars alberica B. 23 Jun 2015

My family (5 persons) had a private tour with Diana in June and we loved it! The children remember that afternoon as one of our best experiences in Greece, Diana captured their attention and they learned a lot of things! Thank you, Diana, we all hope to come back soon and visit Athens with you!

5 stars Vyacheslav L. 11 Jun 2015

Diana gave us experience beyond any expectations. She is very knowlegeable, but what sets her apart is that she is a great story teller. She also has deep love for Grek history, and it shows.

We had 3 days with her, and wish we could go to more places! See you next time, Diana, and we are sure there will be a next time.

5 stars Ariane W. 03 May 2015

Diana was a wonderful, informative, helpful &friendly guide for my 11 year old son & I. She was knowledgeable about the places she took us to & had great tips for restaurants etc. for our free time. Having a native Greek guide made our trip feel like we were being shown round by a friend who knows all the secret & hidden bits of Athens. Diana drove us out to the Temple of Poseidon & stopped at her favourite bakery so my son could try some real Greek treats too. A memorable trip thanks to Diana.

5 stars chris G. 23 Feb 2015

Superb experience, my Cameroonian colleauges were delighted by the wonderful tour given by Diana and the opportunity to discover the city (shopping spots included :D).

Thank you again for organizing this day trip.

5 stars Rachel S. 09 Oct 2014

Diana was an excellent guide. She ensured that all of our party were able to do as much as possible in the time allotted (even though some were partially disabled). She did her utmost to accommodate and was very knowledgeable about her city, and it's rich history. We also thoroughly enjoyed a delicious lunch together at a family-run restaurant with authentic Greek cuisine. We had a wonderful day!

5 stars Richard H. 22 Jul 2014

Diana was wonderful, both with me and my wife, and especially with my two kids (8 & 5).

She really took the burden of engaging them off my wife and I, while still bringing alive the exhibits and sights in Athens. She was a wonderful guide and I would recommend her highly to anyone.

5 stars Nicole S. M. 26 Jun 2014

Diana is amazing! She is so warm and inviting to spend time with. She did a wonderful job making sure everyone's interests were captured and held throughout our 3 days with her. We toured Athens, the beautiful island of Aegina, and also Cape Sounion. Diana's explanations and historical facts were the most interesting and well explained of any tours I have ever taken in Athens. She also helped guide our shopping to great locations to meet our needs. Can't wait to see her next time we return!

5 stars Julie C. 20 May 2014

Diana is awesome as always! Everyone enjoyed the tour immensley!

5 stars Eileen S. 14 Oct 2013

Diana was 5 star plus in our opinion! She was knowlegable in all areas and showed us a wonderful time. She was warm & personable and when we parted it was like saying good bye to a a friend . We thank her from the bottom of our hearts for a great day !

5 stars Kristen A. 29 Aug 2013

Diana knew exactly how to help us get the most out of our day in Athens. She guided us to the best photo spots, the best views, and through the most important sites. She was able to accommodate our needs traveling with three kids (ages 5-11) and we all enjoyed the day. Her long-time driver was also very good and the van comfortable and clean.

5 stars Alain B. 11 Aug 2013

Diana was terrific, she helped organize our short time in Athens and we were able to see some great sites. Hail to the Greek Goddess of Driving, Diana! She is a first-class tour guide, extremely knowledgeable about all of the history of Greece. She drove us in her car to the temple of Poseidon, and all over Athens, very expertly, so that we were able to see as many sites as possible in a short time. She was terrific! I highly recommend her, you cannot go wrong in her hands!

5 stars Tom C. 18 May 2013

Diana was very professional arriving punctually and being well organised. She was friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgable. We enjoyed her company and good humour and her ability to be flexible and make changes to plans if we requested. Diana helped make our stay in Athens a great experience and we thoroughly recommend her.

Tour Guide Comment: I am very thankful!

5 stars Jennifer W. 02 Apr 2013

What a treasure! Diana really helped us maximize our time in Athens and was the ideal tour guide for our family, which includes a 9 and an 11 yr old. We had marvelous tours of Delphi and Athens and got a great balance of edification and vacation. It was like being introduced to these fabulous places by an old friend. Our children have already asked if she will be our guide the next time we come to Greece. We hope so!

Tour Guide Comment: There are a few guides that are lucky to have clients like you! It was my pleasure meeting and guiding you all here,i thank you.

5 stars Frank S. 16 Feb 2013

Diana gave my family and I (including 9 and 11 year old boys) a wonderful tour of Athens. She was flexible, as the weather was a bit iffy, and showed us the outdoor sites first in case it rained, which was smart! She was nice, knowledgable and even bought us a delicious cheese pastry to enjoy overlooking an amazing view of Athens. We all had a fantastic time touring Athens with Diana.

Tour Guide Comment: I am very happy that despite the rain you all had a good time! Many thanks.

5 stars David S. 08 Nov 2012

Diana is an excellent tour guide and her personality and esperience made Athens and the Acropolis come alive. It is important to hire a licensed guide who can stay with you to explain the Acropolis and the museums and Diana was perfect. She was flexible, adaptable, knowledgeable, and the pace of the tour was spot on. She deserves 6 or even 7 stars as a rating. Thanks for moving us seamlessly around Athens during a transportation strike and arranging an airport drop-off.

Tour Guide Comment: I ccould'nt be happier with your comments, as I do love my job and i always want the best for everyone!

5 stars william (. T. 03 Nov 2012

Diana was punctual, knowledgeable and very helpful.

She showed us many highlights of Athens, oriented us to the city, the culture, personal safety issues and advised us about activities we might enjoy and places to eat during the remainder of our stay in Athens.

A consummate professional, but friendly and welcoming too.

Bill Tucker

Tour Guide Comment: I am glad you had a great time with me and in Greece too.

5 stars Bob M. 01 Oct 2012

Diana is the top rated guide for a reason,she is the best. She has a wealth of knowledge and is very good at supplying just the right amount of information. She provides very good insight into life in Greece.

Diana's English is excellent and she is smart, organized, efficient, perceptive and fun to be with. We were lucky to have her as our guide, it made our visit. If you are considering using her, you should book far in advance as she is in high demand with cruise ships and tour companies

Tour Guide Comment: I could not have a better comment than yours. Thank you so much for the free publicity! I am very excited that you enjoyed me so much!!! Take are and see you again.

5 stars Art M. 16 Sep 2012

Had a great tour with Diana in Sept 2012 - 7 of us spent the day touring with her and had an incredible lunch at a typical grrek restaurant - away from the tours. Warm and charming with a lot of local knowledge.

Exceptional experience - I'd highly recommend her.

Art & Diana McCabe, Toronto Canada

5 stars Luke C. 04 Sep 2012

What a wonderful day with Diana. It is no surprise that she has been booked up so many times. We had a great day after being picked up at the cruise ship terminal, we toured the sites of Athens getting around in her car. She showed us a great spot for lunch, and shared all that she knew. Diana is very knowlegeable. I recommend a tour with Diana

Tour Guide Comment: What a nice comment, thank you so much for appreciating my work.

5 stars Howard C. 25 Aug 2012

We had a great time with Diana. She was very knowledgeable, was able to answer all questions, and was very pleasant. We would recommend her to any and all.

5 stars Lisa K. 08 Aug 2012

Our tour with Diana was a pleasure! She is knowledgable and sweet. She tailored our tour to everything we wanted to do and made many suggestions for the remainder of the time we were in Athens. I would highly recommend Diana for any future visits to Athens.

Tour Guide Comment: I am glad I contributed like this in your stay. Thank you a lot.

5 stars Riana K. 29 Apr 2012

Diana was on-time, very knowledgeable, well spoken, and kind. She was able to show us everything that we wanted to see in the 4 hours without feeling rushed. It was a pleasure to have Diana show us Athens, and I'm very glad that we chose her!

Tour Guide Comment: It was a pleasure to guide you around, Thank you again!

5 stars Bruce F. 06 Aug 2011

Diana was teriffic. She was on-time, knew exactly where to go and what to see. Showed us the least difficult ways to climb and took us to great place for lunch. English is excellent. Drove us in her own car and was very pleasant. We had an incident where one of the people in our party lost her wallet and whe stayed and helped us try to find it and talked to the people around the city to see what her options were. Turns out wallet found by passerby and turned it into our hotel intact.. WOW

Tour Guide Comment: I am so happy that it was a nice and unforgettable day after all!

5 stars Laura K. 20 Jun 2011

Diana was simply Amazing we all loved her. The 4 of us spent 3 days with her and it was worth the money. She knew we were interested in the history of Greece and gave us a few ideas on where to go. For 3 days she drove us everywhere we planned to go. We stopped at places that she recommeded with great food. My daughters loved to hear the stories about Greece. I know we will always remember her and all the history we learned about Greece. She's great so book her way in advance.

Tour Guide Comment: I get more happy when I see you so happy! THANK YOU

5 stars James S. 17 Jun 2011

We just spent two days with Diana and had a great time. She took us to Corinth and Mycenae one day and then on a tour of Athens the second day. She was very efficient in moving us through the crowds in Athens and her approach to touring the Parthenon Museum was perfect. We enjoyed talking with her about Greece and she provided great insights into the history and culture of her country.

Tour Guide Comment: I appreciate your comments! Thank you very much

5 stars Debbie W. 07 Jun 2011

Diana was such a pleasure to spend the day with in Athens. She was able to navigate us around the city to avoid the crowds. We cannot say enough about the ease in which Diana was able to tour us around the city and was comfortable with us as if we were old friends in town for a visit. We enjoyed every moment of our day in Athens with Diana and the is no doubt that your experience will be the same.

Thank you Diana

Tour Guide Comment: I thank you for choosing me to spend your day in Athens!

5 stars Robert S. 28 May 2011

It was our good fortune to be wait listed for a Athens City Tour on our cruise. Had we gotten the excursion, we would never have met Diana Stefanou-Huttinga. One word--AMAZING. She met us at the dock and designed a tour for the 4 of us. My advice is to skip the cruise ship excursion and sign up with Diana. You won't be part of the masses, can pick your own place for lunch, and spend the day with one of the most pleasant people we had the pleasure of meeting on our vacation. BOOK EARLY.

Tour Guide Comment: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I wish all my guests are like you, because I treated you as I would like to be treated to!Hoping to see you again,take good care.

5 stars MARY E. Y. 25 May 2011

We arrived Athens on May 25, 2011 via the Navigator of the Seas.The Harbour was so crowded then; time was limited & we had so much to see. Good thing, Diana was our guide! She was organized, fast, creative & informative. Despite a hectic schedule, our group of 16 was able to see all of Athen's magnificent sights, take lots of marvelous pictures, feast on authentic Greek cuisines as well as buy nice souvenirs for home.Athens is worth visiting in a day if Diana is your guide. Giving her 5 stars!

Tour Guide Comment: I am very happy and proud when I see that I pleased 16 pax at once. Thank you very much!

5 stars Michael S. 15 Mar 2011

We spent three enjoyable days with Diana. Her depth of knowledge was impressive. The children and I especially enjoyed the mythology stories. Diana has a fun, outgoing personality and seems to know everyone in Greece. The highlight of our tour was allowing her to order at the restaurants that she suggested. Our table was full of the best Greek cooking available. Bravo! Highly recommended.

Tour Guide Comment: I am very pleased that you had an enjoyable time with me. It was fun to be with you and share the Greek history and mythology with your beautiful family. May life brings you back to visit more!Take care1

5 stars Kate B. 29 Dec 2010

My wife and I just returned from a weeklong trip to Athens and the surrounding countryside. The trip was very enjoyable in large part because of our guide, Diana. She is very knowledgeable of the Greek history. In addition, Diana put in special effort to lead us through Jewish culture in Greece. Diana has been a guide for 15 years, and it shows. Walking into an out of the way restaurant was like walking into her family’s dining room. And, the food was great. We would love to see her again.

Tour Guide Comment: The fact that you took 8 years off my experience, I take it as a compliment for the way I look. I had a great time with you too. You know how life should be!

5 stars Robert C. 24 Aug 2010

Our family of four (including two teenagers) toured the Acropolis and Athens with Diana in late August, and couldn't have been more pleased. Diana is outgoing, funny, and has great knowledge of the city and historical sites. She customized the day to accommodate our wishes, and found a great, non-tourist restaurant for lunch. A perfect seven hour excursion for our day in port!

Tour Guide Comment: It was really a pleasure guiding a family like yours! May you return back, thank you.

5 stars Muriel W. 15 Jul 2010

Don't hesitate to book a tour with Diana as she makes you see Athens through her eyes and her knowledge is second to none. We spent two wonderful days touring. The first day was a walking tour of Athens which was extremely enjoyable. The second day was spent on the Island of Aegina which was spectacular. We had loads of fun and very much enjoyed getting to know Athens and the lovely Diana. All our very best wishes to you and your family.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you so much! I really enjoy making my clients feel like home and I treat them as friends.All the best to you, as well!

5 stars Debra S. 18 Jun 2010

Diana was a wonderful host. Our time in Athens was limited, however Diana managed to get us to the most interesting locations. Her knowledge of Athens it's history and the locals (she even knew the car park attendants' to ensure our luggage was safe) certainly enriched our experience. We would certainly recommend her to anyone wanting to understand Athens instead of just seeing it.

Thanks Diana for make our trip to Athens such a memorable one.

Tour Guide Comment: I am very happy that I made your trip a memorable one.Come back!!!!!!

5 stars Paula B. 16 Jun 2010

What a great experience! Much better than going with a large group! Diana is so kknowlegable and informative. She drove us in her car with quick parking and access to venues with shortcuts so we could see mor without lines. We felt we received a totally fulfilling day and experienced the most possible with our time.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for appreciating my job, I do my best, as I love it!

5 stars Patricia K. 15 Jun 2010

We just returned from a 12 day cruise on the Ruby Princess. Our stop in Athens was one of the highlights of our trip. After reading Diana's profile

on the internet, I decided to book with your company. I cannot tell you how impressed our group of 10 were with Diana. She is an excellent guide and so knowledgeable about her city. We could not find one thing to complain about. We feel very fortunate to have gotten her as our guide. She is exactly who we'd want if we ever return to Athens.

Tour Guide Comment: It was my pleasure, i will be here for you and your friends!

5 stars Timothy P. 09 Jun 2010

Tim and Brig

Tour Guide Comment: People like you make me the best!Thank you, can't wait to see you again. Keep enjoying life!!!!

5 stars Susan D. 22 May 2010

My daughter and I spent a day and a half touring Athens with Diana. She is an extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating tour guide. We visited not only the major sights of Athens, but out of the way spots as well. She tailored our visit to our interests and introduced us to her favorite restaurants and shops. She also arranged transportation for us from our cruise ship to our hotel and from our hotel to the airport. We highly recommend Diana!

Susan Denbo

Tour Guide Comment: I am happy i fulfilled your expectations!That is my goal with all my clients. My best wishes for your daughter's wedding.

5 stars Jerry P. 04 May 2010

Diana did and excellent job of showing us the high points of the city. We were there the day protestors closed the Acropolis for a short period of time, but she managed to work around that until it opened. I would highly recommend her.

Tour Guide Comment: I am happy you had finally a good time,there is always a way for everything.Only will is needed....

5 stars Robert S. 01 Apr 2010

Diana is a fantastic tour guide, and I highly recommend her. My only problem is that we didn't have enough time. Because this was a shore excursion from a cruise we only had about 6 hours. Our group was 21 people, and Diana reserved us a private bus (that would have fit 50) for a very reasonable price. We were able to see all the major sites, and had a excellent lunch at a Greek sandwich shop. (Just what we wanted)

Diana knows her field well and will guide your group as a good friend would.

Tour Guide Comment: You were a nice family and i felt like guiding mine.Hoping to see you in the future with more free time,greetings to all!

5 stars anthony S. 09 Jan 2010

we toured with diana two days and where extremely pleased with her knowledge of history and the fun way she conducted herself. I hope to see her again someday

Tour Guide Comment: I loved being with you and next time I will drive you in new destinations. Keep having fun, take good care of each other!

5 stars Mark B. 08 Nov 2009

Diana was great and very knowledgeable. So many tour guides take you to some business or crafts store to get you to buy stuff so that they can get a kick back. This was history, architecture, and Athens at it's best. And to have your own personal guide to communicate directly with - how good is that? I highly recommend Diana.

Tour Guide Comment: I am here to make your trip an unforgettable one! I am glad I did it.Thank you so much!

5 stars Doug R. 01 Nov 2009

We had a wonderful time in Athens. Thank you for helping us out, Maria was terrific and very knowledgeable! I hope you are feeling better, thanks again and Happy Holidays. Doug

Tour Guide Comment: You want the best and you get it. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

5 stars Jo A. B. 23 Oct 2009

Diana was a GREAT guide! She is a delightful person. We had a terrific tour of Athens with her. We would give Diana 10 STARS, as she is very educated and can share information at any level of knowledge. She is very flexible she took us to all the sites we wanted to see. She was a great help with our shopping needs. She truly made our tour in Athens a most memorable one. We are very happy we found her. She's a real Gem. You can't miss with Diana's tour guide services.

Jo Ann and Kathy - USA

Tour Guide Comment: Ladies like you give me energy to improve myself and fight for life. A big hug to both of you!!!

5 stars Linda D. 08 Oct 2009

We loved Diana. She speaks English so well. She is comfortable to be with. Personable. She even arranged to have our friends picked up by cab at the airport and brought them to meet us at the Acropolis and switch cars and luggage with us so they could see the Acropolis while we went back to the ship. Quite a pro at logistics. She really knew her stuff. We’d give her a 5!!!!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for being flexible and so enthousiastic about Athens.See you back for more.

5 stars Stuart G. 27 Aug 2009

It would be my greatest pleasure to rate Diana a resounding 5 out of 5! We visited Athens for only one day as part of a Cruise, and Diana met us at the port upon our arrival and provided us with one of the most memorable days of sightseeing we have ever experienced. We certainly very much enjoyed her great knowledge of the city and its history, but even more enjoyed and appreciated her attention to our interests. We truly felt more her guests than her clients. Sincerely, Stuart + Marla Glenwick

Tour Guide Comment: The pleasure was all mine!

5 stars Bill Z. 26 Aug 2009

Diana made our tour of Athens one of the highlights of our vacation. The entire family loved her. Especially the kids. We would give her 6 stars if we could.

5 stars Catherine C. 22 Aug 2009

Diana is a top-notch tour guide and she led our family through a wonderful day in Athens! She is very knowledgable and we learned a great deal about the history of Athens and about current Greek customs as well. Her explanations were very clear and she really brought things to life. The restaurant she took us to for lunch was perfect and we all enjoyed a fabulous meal! We loved getting to know her...it was only a day, but we feel as if we are good friends! Thanks for everything!

Tour Guide Comment: I really enjoy working with enthusiastic people like you.Hoping to see you back!

4 stars Debbie O. 12 Sep 2015

Diana met us at the dock with our name on a sign which we appreciated. We had a lot of tour to cover so she was very conscientious of our time. She was very friendly, knowlegeable, patient, sincere and accurate regarding time and locations. She shared a lot of insight and provided us time to wander on our own. We visited all the historical sights and just made it back to the cruise ship in time to have lunch on board. Thank you Diana for such an enlightening tour and all your patience.

4 stars Randall K. 26 Oct 2014

Diana was fantastic. We had a blast and learned a lot on our 6 hour tour of the Athens highlights. There were four of us including two kids (ages 14 and 11) and Diana made the experience memorable for all of us. We will certainly recommend her highly to any one who asks.

4 stars Steven T. 01 Aug 2013

Diana was a great guide for the 1/2 day we had with her. She showed us pretty much all of Athens with stops at all the major sites and a great deal of history and local politics thrown in. Would definitely recommend or use her again.

Diana was an excellent guide for our family. She is knowledgable, and personable. We both learned that we need to work on the business side of the transaction.

Tour Guide Comment: I guided you as i would like to guide my family abroad!

Diana was welcoming & warm. She is a wonderful person; enjoyable to be with. In view of our many guides overseas, she was certainly as competent, though as an educator, I would have appreciated a less spotty account for more narrative where possible. Few remember much from Athens as a result. Overall, we had a positive experience with the charming Diana, but with educational hopes in mind, we wished the presentation left a stronger impact.

Tour Guide Comment: On a walking tour of 4 hrs, visiting 4 archeological sites, it is difficult not to focus on the highlights!Next time, inform me about your preferences.I appreciate your comments!Thanks.

Fairly average and unenthusiastic tour of a remarkable city. We did get through the sites, but it felt like the tour was phoned-in.

Tour Guide Comment: I am very sorry and surprised you felt like that. I guess I can not make everybody happy all the time!
