Danae K.

Athens, Greece

Dear Traveler, let me welcome you to Greece, the land of legends and contradictions!

My name is Danae and according to the myth, I captured the heart of mighty Zeus. The resourceful god took the form of a shower of gold in order to make a good first impression on me and he actually did!

If you want to learn more about mythology, history, art and modern life of Greece, I will be happy to join you on a journey through time and space.

In real life, I am a licensed tour guide based in Athens and I feel fortunate to have a strong passion for antiquity and culture, driving my career. I studied history and archaeology in Athens, I continued with master studies in museology. I graduated the National School of Guides in 2011. Since then, I work as a guide introducing visitors to some of the most important and influential sites, monuments and museums of Western civilization, sharing with them the secrets of Greek lifestyle.

After many years of guiding, I realize that there is nothing more exciting than the moment when I see Greece in my guests' eyes. I am looking forward to seeing that in your eyes too…

A Recent Review of this guide

Danae was an excellent storyteller making the mythology and history of Greece come alive. This was so much better than the usual tour of ruins. She was fantastic and adjusted the tour as we went according to our interests. I highly recommend this tour with Danae!!!
