It must have been at the end of middle school when I discovered graffiti, although my fascination with drawing and the arts had been with me a lot longer. My new hobby began stealing ‘precious’ time I could have used for studying for school. I realised that action had to be taken. Good art schools, great street art, late 1990s graphic design capital; United Kingdom, here I come! But that’s a long story I can tell you some other time. One thing I can tell you about that experience right now is that when I got there, I discovered that my study time had now, in fact, truly become ‘precious’.

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.

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

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.

Testimonials

"First time family trip to Greece we did a fantastic private tour to Delphi, perhaps the most interesting of all the ancient destinations we toured during our two week trip. This is a fantastic way to see the countryside, visit Delphi, enjoy local food and learn about local small businesses. I wish I could travel this way everywhere we go. I will recommend this tour to anyone heading to Athens. A Must-Do!"

"Organisme très professionnel et excellent guide! On a bcp appris et avons découvert des quartiers où nous ne serions jamais allées. Ilias parle parfaitement français, il a répondu à toutes nos questions. Avec deux ados de 13 et 16 ans et une visite de près de 4h, nous n'avons pas vu le temps passer!"

Anne Sophie M, TripAdvisor

"Truly amazing! Some of the hidden sites have been our favorites while in Athens. The tour allowed us not only to see interesting places and some street art, but also gave us a feel for Greek culture and the lives of the residents of each neighborhood, something we could not get simply by ourselves. Our tour guide was exceptionally kind, and engaging; we felt we were walking with a friend. It was definitely a highlight of our trip, and we are so glad we did it."
