Hello, my name is Evanna, I am Athenian born and raised. I consider myself an extroverted person with a great passion for traveling, exploring new places, discovering different cultures and meeting new people. I have earned a Bachelor Degree in Media, Culture, and Communication at Panteion University of Social and Political sciences. Since I was young I had an affinity for my country's rich past. History and Mythology were regularly a pastime affair for me. As a result, I have attended classes in Archaeology and Classical History. I also own The Vellum International Diploma in Travel and Tourism. I have professional experience as a Tour Guide in Semi-Private Groups and have worked in Sales in the past.

About the tour

Immerse yourself in Athens 3.000-year rich history and stroll through the capital with an expert guide. Grab the opportunity to see the city through the eyes of a local and a passionate traveler at that. Avoid the large tour groups with this semi-private tour so the experience will be personalized.

Together we will walk around the city for 2 hours, during which you will discover different spots, have opportunities for great photographs, learn about Athenian history, visit famous landmarks and you will also receive important advice that will save you time, money and will jump-start your journey.

Our tour starts at a modern part of the center, the National Library, which is easily accessible via Panepistimio metro station. We will see the Parliament and visit the National Garden, a green oasis in the heart of Athens. We will also encounter the Temple of Zeus, the Roman Agora, walk the pedestrianized streets around Acropolis, visit a majestic viewpoint and get lost in the traditional neighborhood of Plaka. Then we will feel the lively vibes of Monastiraki, where many cafes, restaurants, and shops are located. Our tour will conclude at Thissio, where we will see the Keramikos Cemetery of Ancient Athens. During our journey, you will learn the city’s history and hopefully get a grasp of the little quirks our beautiful capital has.

P.S It is advised to book the tour at least one day before the day that the tour takes place.

For bookings made 12 hours or less before the starting time of the tour ,you should receive a confirmation by me. In case you don't, that means that the tour is canceled.

Many thanks for Evanna for her personalised and totally chill walking tour around Athens. Super easy to chat to, open, knowledgeable and friendly, we were well looked after and got a good grounding of Athens and it's wonders.

Highly recommend this to orientate yourself when you first get to Athens. Good luck, Evanna!
