I’m from Athens and I studied Economics and Business Administration at Athens University. I’ve always enjoyed travelling and exploring the world. Tour guiding started out as me showing my friends around Athens, particularly the ‘secret’ side of the city that lies beyond the big attractions such as the Acropolis. I then decided to transform my hobby into a job! I’ve been a professional tour guide since 2008 and my company is my baby - we work only with qualified tour guides as part of a handpicked team. We can guide in English, French, German, Italian and Chinese. I am outgoing, social and I like adapt my tours to your personal interests to exceed your expectations. What kind of tours can you expect? Interactive tours for young people and children with games, quizzes and activities, food tours, highlights tours and plenty of hidden treasures.

“Thank you Kostas for the loveliest time! It was just like walking with our Greek friend in Athens, talking about the Greek history in the most interesting way and finishing the tour with a delicious picnic and wine, was the perfect ending! I don't have enough words to emphasize how great and enjoyable it was, it made our trip in Athens! Highly recommended!” – March 2017 Korin “We decided to make sure we got a good feel for the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum by booking a private guide for our family of 4: 2 adults and kids ages 8 and 11. I can't say enough good things about Mariza (Kosta’s colleague) and the tour she gave us. She kept the kids interested throughout the 4 hour tour, and we adults found it interesting and informative as well. We started our tour at 4 p.m. and saw the museum before the Acropolis, which was a perfect way to do it. Cooler, fewer people, a great introduction prior to viewing the ruins themselves. I highly recommend Mariza as a guide, she does tours all over Greece. The tour was very easy to book via email and I received prompt replies to my request.” – July 2016 Letsgocamping
