My name is Theodora and I was born and raised in Athens, so it is my hometown and I will proudly show you around!
I always wanted to be a tour guide so, as they say:" If you love your job you will not work a day in your life"!
I am a pro in this field collecting experience over the last 10 years. I am also a lot of fun, as I am not insisting on giving my guests only historical info, but also insight into everyday life and habits in Greece. Even a short Greek language lesson is in order! You learned your first Greek word already, just by reading my bio!
Providing guiding services in and around Athens is my sole occupation and as I don't have kids of my own yet, I dedicate my free time to further enhancing my knowledge of Greek art and ancient culture. Attending exhibitions and lectures, theatrical performances as well as reading are a few of my hobbies!
Did you know that for many decades now anyone can watch an ancient tragedy or comedy in an ancient theatre? Well, it's presented in modern Greek, but nonetheless, it's one of my favorite things to do in Athens!
One more huge asset of the city is its riviera, one of the longest in the world! What most Athenians prefer on a summer afternoon (including me) is to find themselves next to the water and enjoy great views while drinking one of the three sorts of iced coffee.
If that sounded relaxing and if meeting an insider will make your trip more interesting, then I cannot wait to meet you!
You are all welcome!
A Recent Review of this guide
Very prompt. Knowledgeable, explained all the important exhibits at the at the National Archeological Museum in a very concise but understandable manner that made the tour a joy to follow.Theodora relates to the visitor's interests and engages in a very pleasant and informative banter. We left highly educated ready and eager for our forthcoming visit to the islands and the other treasures that are there. We now know what and where to look. I highly recommend her. Jaime PR
