I would like to promote tourism to Greece through these walks. To allow people to come to Athens , be entertained and orientated over a few hours and then continue their stay in this wonderful country. I'm an experienced business man and I'm a health professional. I've created a team of walkers who will be able to walk the tourists through the center of Athens. The walkers are all residents in Greece. I'm Greek and from a village in central Greece, I've lived all over the world and believe I'm in a unique position to help the people understand Greece and it's culture and health systems in a fun and entertaining manner.

George is very nice, he gave us a tour through some of the Athens highlights. He was very generous and offered us a greek cake and some greek souvenirs. He used to be a pharmacists so he gave us a lot of advice on how to stay healthy.

We spent 3 amazing hours with George on our small tour through Athens. It’s been amazing because we were in a small group just with George and furthermore George is an incredible person. He gave us a lot of information about the old Athens and on the other side it’s been funny as well. Lust but not least we just can recommend the tour in the beginning of your Athens trip because your going to have a nice start in the city and George can give you a lot of recommendations

The walk was with Maria, not George. It was a really nice tour, very enthuastic and energetic in excellent english. We learnt a lot about the greek history, their culture and way of living. Maria did not overload us with dates and boring history, but made it interactive and interesting. She also gave helpful tipps for staying in Athens.

Great tour - George was a fantastic guide, told us lots of facts and stories but made it very entertaining. At the end of the tour he gave us some restaurant suggestions and tips on how to best maximise the rest of our time in Athens. Strongly recommend doing this walking tour - allow 2 1/2 - 3 hours, it’s very comprehensive!
