Yia sas! My name is Nota Sarantopoulou. I am an archaeologist and licenced tourist guide born and raised in Athens.
If you join me on a tour you can walk on the paths of the ancient philosophers, see masterpieces of classical art, meander in the local markets, try local food,, feel the atmosphere of the city..
I have a historical and archaeological background and 15 years of experience as a tourist guide to share with you. I travel a lot myself to know the travellers' needs and I promise that the moment you'll be leaving Athens will be like leaving a friend..
Recent reviews of this tour guide:
We had a very enjoyable time with Nota, and recommend her to anyone looking for an English speaking guide in Athens. Nota speaks English very fluently in a voice that is very easy to listen to. She obviously enjoys her work and knows the history of the city and it's attractions. The time flew by. Top marks !!
