I speak Greek and English fluently and I have been working as a licensed taxi driver and tour guide for the past 12 years. I chose this profession because I have always liked cars and driving in general. I am also a car engineer graduate and I work part time as a high school professor. This has given me the chance always be aware of my vehicles and be able to understand and overcome any situation. My current vehicle is a Mercedes E class.
I believe that one word that would perfectly describe my personality is passionate. Passionate about my country. Passionate about my work. Passionate to adapt and try to do the best I can. I have always loved Greece and especially its rich history and culture. In fact, I can hardly think of a time that I did not want to open another history or mythology book in order to further extend my knowledge.
Seven years ago I gave my first tour around Athens and so I had my first chance to try to pass my passion to others. I've loved it ever since. After that I have been working hard gathering pictures, videos and additional information to provide my customers with. Finding various local restaurants for them to try the famous Greek traditional cuisine and small out-of-the-way places that attract way less travellers and provide them with unique experiences.
Everything I do is for my customer's satisfaction, happiness and entertainment. It would be an honour to continue this with you. Together we will uncover the rich History and uniqueness of Greece while having fun in the process. I look forward to meeting you.
A Recent Review of this guide
Apologies Nektarios, for a delayed review! Nektarios is an excellent English-speaking guide. In addition to his knowledgeable of Athens, he was flexible and responsive to questions and to our requests to change the itinerary he'd planned for us. Best of all, he has a warm, engaging sense of humor and can recommend places for great non-touristic Greek dining (Thank you for the "Pende Phi" restaurant!). I would wholeheartedly recommend Nektarios to anyone wanting an overview tour of 'his city'!
