our team

We’re doing what we do because we love our city and we get a real kick out of sharing it with people. That’s our whole business plan, really; to show you things and places that you wouldn’t have found on your own! This isn’t what we studied, or what we thought we’d be doing ten years ago, and we’re each very different, but we all like travel and we all understand travellers, so here we are.

In 2010, the Greek crisis hit and the country went into freefall. I was left without a job, a car or even medical insurance, and there was little perspective of finding a new job any time soon.

I grew up in a neighbourhood called Nea Smyrni. The first settlers here were refugees from Asia Minor. People in our neighbourhood are proud of where they come from.

I am a fan of poetry. Poems have the ability to paint a picture in just a few words… especially while traveling.

There is a theory that claims that your name determines who you are. Antigone, the famous heroine of a Greek tragedy, defied the rules and for that she faced death.

I was about five, and I was taking part in a school celebration. When I stood behind the microphone, my mind went blank and my mouth went dry. Tears welled up in my eyes.

As Euclid said, the laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God. So, maybe the reason I developed an inclination to mathematics is because I was so connected to the earth since my childhood.

Camus once mentioned that a single truth, if it is obvious, is enough to guide an existence. Although it may sound unreasonable or perhaps simplistic at first glance, for me it proved to be right.

Testimonials

"My three kids, ages 8, 6, and 4, had a fantastic time during their "Playing Goddess Athena" tour. The activities were both engaging and educational. My kids loved it and name it as one of the highlights of our 2+ weeks in Greece. I brought a book and my husband went off to see more historical sites that wouldn't interest the children. Highly recommend."

Kristine H

"A different approach of Athens. Nikos was a great guide, the areas we visited are non touristic and that is mostly (with the street art) appreciated. I was alone but mixed to a very nice US family."

asfarclaude

"This is your chance to experience the spirit of modern Athens. Our eyes opened to this wonderful vibrant city - we loved Athens. Several hours of walking and talking with our new Athenian best friend. Don’t miss this tour!"
