Vassilios is amazing guide and great human being! He is obviously very proud of his Greek culture and history and it clearly shows as he conducts tour and guides you through various places. He has a good sense of humor and is great with kids which makes it easier for them to ask questions. He is also very courteous and professional driver with very clean Mercedes van to allow you to relax during long drives such as one from Athens to Corinth canal. I highly recommend Vassilios to anyone visiting Athens.
