Maria S.

Athens, Attiki, Greece

I am Maria, born and raised in Athens; I am an archaeologist and licensed tour guide for the past 21 years.

Ever since I can remember my life revolves around history and storytelling.

A long journey that starts with love for mythology, ancient culture, art and architecture; along came a degree in Archaeology (1992), post graduate studies in ancient buildings restoration and lot of travels, personal research and storytelling. And now here I am …with a story to tell you.

I love what I do. I am a licensed tour guide and tour director since 1997; after having worked with some of the top tour-operators, in the last 3 years I plan and guide cultural and private customized tours throughout Greece.

Crafting your unique story about Athens and the surroundings is one of those things I enjoy the most. Whether you want to capture yesterday's greatness or witness today's challenges, I will diligently plan our day's roadmap to address your individual wants and needs.

Together we'll make it a full fun day to remember! I'll make sure the pace is just right plus I got you covered for the best photo spots - I love photography among other things!

So come and join me to an unforgettable and diverse journey: from exploring culture and mythical symbols to the reality of everyday Athenian life and smart shopping. I wouldn't take you anywhere I wouldn't take my best friends!

A Recent Review of this guide

Maria was wonderful! We were a very large group and we definitely tested her patience because we do not atop talking but she never wavered from being friendly and professional. I would hire Maria again and again
