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 normal 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!
A Recent Review of this guide
Markos was a fantastic guide, who was professional, flexible and informative with our diverse family. He arrived early and communicated the plan right away while also listening to our interests throughout the day. He eagerly discussed relevant history and culture, and he offered advice about food and activities outside of our tour as well. He had great organization for the day, and we would recommend Markos to anyone looking for a guide or tourist advice in Greece! Thank you Markos for a great day!

I am not a licensed guide and I will not be able to come with you inside the historical sites, but I will share with you my personal knowledge about all the sites we are going to visit.
