My name is Giota, i am a professional tour guide with over 15 years of experience and i would love to share my passion for the greek culture with you. My city, Athens, has over 100 museums, over 30 arqueological sites, amazing neighborhoods, sandy beaches, typical restaurants, so many things to see and to do!Together we can organise the tour that you have always dreamed of, according to your interests. I was born and raised in Athens, i know the city inside-out and i would be glad to show you not only the touristic part but also the real Athens of her citizens!
Please contact me to check my availability before booking.

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:
cultural tours of athens and katakolon. All over Greece upon request.
If you are in a hotel i can meet you in the hotel's lobby, if you arrive on a cruise ship i can come to pick you up from the port. For first-time visitors in Athens i propose a 4 hour tour of the Acropolis of Athens (the ancient athenians sacred rock with the Parthenon and the other monuments of the 5 century bC), the new Acropolis museum (a brand new and amazing museum), a walking tour of the city(to see the most important buildings and monuments) and Plaka (the typical old Athens neighborhood with monuments, shops, restaurants). You will get a good impression of the greek capital. For visitors who have already been in those places I would recommend the cape Sounion or the National museum, and if you share your interests with me, there are a lot of options!
Transportation by tour guide:
A walking tour is a fantastic way to discover the city but we can always use my a/c car (extra charge and baby seat available, maximum 3 persons), or mini bus, tourist bus for groups, limousine upon request.

I look forward to share my experience with you and to take you to all the amazing places of my city!
Reviews of this tour – by clients who booked!
Giota was really nice and very informative.
She kept the tour interesting- even for young adults. We visited the Acropolis and this is a large site with many temples. We enjoyed our visit much more with a guide than if we had just wandered around by ourselves. She made sure that we had plenty of time sitting down in the shade so we did not get too hot or tired.
She also organised airport transfers for us with a nice comfortable minivan.
I would highly recommend Giota.
