I was born in New Jersey, US in 1986 but I have been living in Greece for the biggest part of my life. I started travelling and exploring Greece in my early years with my father, who would show me the magical places of Greece and stories that helped growing my intense excitement in History, Greek or worldwide and Greek mythology. I always loved history because you know what they say, "history repeats itshelf" and it is always good to learn from the mistakes and success of others.
My studies in Greece were in the area of Aircraft Mechanical Engineering with a Master Degree from Y. P. A (Civil Aviation Authority), a B1 License from EASA and 7 years of experience working in Olympic Airways and the Hellenic Aerospace Industry. I have a proficiency degree in English language, Computer hardware engineer skill, a software decree ECDL professional and a degree in Classical guitar.
Even though I am occupied with many things I have some free time for spiritual refilling and competition!
My passion is dancing, music and lots of reading. I am an exceptional Argentine Tango dancer as a hobbyist and as an athlete in competitions. I enjoy playing the guitar, either Classical or Electric and I won a few competitions as a teenager and as an adult. I also enjoy reading novels, either graphic or non. Some of my favorite writers are Clive Burker, Garth Enis, Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore and Stephen King.
My general experience in being involved in many different areas and traveling continuously because of my profession as an aircraft mechanical engineer made me the guide I am today.
I love exploring Greece and more importantly I love showing off the beauty of my country, talking all day long for its mythology, the glorious battles against big superpowers, the victories, the history's connection with the spiritual world and. . . trying the best places for fooood, which is always an important factor for a Great local experience!
So if you want to have a great and comfortable local experience in Athens "who ya gonna call?" Fortunately I have the answer for you!

A Recent Review of this guide
We had an excellent tour. All three of us would recommend Dimitris to other travelers. He was prompt, courteous, and energetic. With his driving we felt completely safe even when traffic around us (and one other tour bus in particular) was crazy. We saw all the sights we wanted to see. I was initially hesitant about not having a guide accompany with us to the sites but I was wrong to worry. Dimitris had us completely prepared with full presentations and then we could go at our own pace.

I am not a "licensed tour guide" and will not be able to guide or escort you inside of the historical monuments.
My knowledgeable historical presentation will offer you a thorough understanding of every historical monument before your visit.
