Ever since I was a child, I remember myself walking around the streets of my birthplace, Athens. While I was growing up, I started learning little by little, about my country's amazing history. It was from that time, as a child, that I realized the glory of Ancient Greek Civilization. I realized the global importance of Ancient Greek Characters, and I also realized the magnitude of cultural and scientific wealth that Ancient Greece spread to the world.
My Studies are in the field of healthcare. I have a Bachelor's degree in Healthcare and Social Units Administration from the Technological Educational Institute of Athens. I also have a Master's degree in Health Management from the University of Piraeus. Furthermore, I have a Certificate of Proficiency in English from the University of Michigan. My writing and speaking skills in English are excellent.
I am also a guitarist in professional level and a Marathon runner.
Being a Private Tour Driver Guide is more than a job for me. It is a great opportunity, to introduce my country's history and culture, through its monuments. It's not just a business to me, it is a way to meet people and share my passion with them.
I love my country and I really love my city. I practically know Athens like the palm of my hand. I know many amazing things that a traveller would love to do in Athens, that regular sightseeing cannot offer. There are many ways in which a city can surprise you, but it is very difficult for a typical traveller to find them. Only a local person, like me, can offer the full experience.
This is what I want to do, to offer you an experience that will last for a lifetime!
