I have been an exclusive taxi driver up to 1998 when I started cooperating with Athenian Travel Agencies, working under strict schedules and deadlines.
In the Olympic Games of 2004, I served as the personal driver of the famous NBC journalist Brian Williams. Since then, I have been cooperating with many other tour sites and agencies, making guided tours in Athens and all around Greece mainland.
Regarding my driving, I believe that safety comes first and I make sure that passengers feel comfortable, relaxed and enjoy a tour that can always be adjusted to their needs.
As I always like to offer high-quality services, to evolve, and share my expertise with other people, I continuously enrich my knowledge of Greek history that I like so much.
I am a friendly, pleasant personality and can discuss with my customers' aspects of contemporary life in Greece, traditions, and habits, to enhance a better understanding of Greek culture.
I joined ToursByLocals to offer Athens tours and Greece tours at the mainland. I can guarantee you a memorable lifetime experience during your visit in Athens and Greece overall!
I ensure you that after taking the tour, you will love Athens and Greece as much as I do!
A Recent Review of this guide
Chris Paparas is an expert driver, with a highly professional, calm manner. I took the ambitious 5-day tour: Argolis, Sparta, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora. I felt accommodated and never rushed. At each ancient site, Chris gave a brief overview, and then drove me to the entrance and picked me up at the exit. Chris has excellent contacts with local hotels for a good value, and family-owned restaurants for exquisite traditional dishes. Chris' knowledge, respect and enthusiasm for his country was delightful!
