Hello. I'm Vassilis and I was raised in Athens, a city that I love and which I believe has much more to offer you, other than its well known and much advertised points. I have been traveling from the age of 5 and in recent years I am traveling across many European countries, most of the times by bicycle, a fact that has changed my perception of traveling. I realized that people get to really know a place if they get lost in its narrow streets, quiet neighborhoods, buzzing markets, when they take a rest in its parks, becoming one with nature, if they go to places that are not touristic and choose to become one with the locals. The feeling of living for a while as the permanent residents of a city do fascinates me and that's why I want every traveler to feel the same when visiting my country, because we Greeks know how to live beautifully...
Born and raised in downtown Athens, a typical modern, old-fashioned Greek. An avid traveller, started flying around all over Europe at the age of 6 and never stopped since. I appreciate diversity, having lived abroad in northern Italy all my adult life, studying and working to become an M.D., I returned in Greece in 2014. Constantly on the move, I love swimming but also savour a good meal and a glass of good wine. I really like to enjoy everyday small things and share my passion for the Hellenic way of life.
Geia sas! I am Antonis, half Athenian and half Tinian (Tinos is a beautiful Cycladic island). I grew up in the urban districts of Athens, enjoying my summer holidays in Tinos, a fact that made me adore the sea and the marble art. Ever since I was a child I was dreaming of traveling all over the world, but I had to wait until I became a grown up to start my adventures. Having travelled abroad in more than 15 countries and 45 cities, I am sure that the only way to have a place engraved in your memory is by engaging with the locals, tasting the traditional cuisine and walking in places that no touristic guide can reveal. So, I am waiting for you either in Athens or in Tinos to show you what it really feels to Be a Greek!

Hello! My name is Vicky and I was born and raised in Athens, a city that harmoniously combines the past with the present. Since I was a child, I enjoyed walking in the city center with my family, feeling awed by being under the Acropolis, walking through the same narrow alleys where Socrates and Pericles lived. I studied Philosophy-Pedagogy-Psychology and now I am a PhD Candidate in School Psychology. I have an extensive experience working with children, adolescents and parents. Combining my love for both children and my country, you will find me designing activities for kids that will allow them to experience Greece through playing!

Visiting a new place has always presented a challenge for me. Beside some typical touristic sights, I was always looking for that place’s unique essence, like all those things that locals do: street or gourmet food, small pleasures and Art and music were always on the list. You will be surprised by the variety of the choice that is available in Greece. I am looking forward to welcoming you to our beautiful country!!
Born and raised by the sea, in the southern suburbs of Athens, I got my Bachelor in Business Administration and my M.Sc. in Marketing, but decided to follow my passion and become a professional Salsa dancer and instructor. I can't deny trying anything new, a new experience, a new place or a new taste. I love marketing, books, dancing, snowboarding (yes, in Greece you can do that too) and discovering where the heart of the city beats. Ι love to immerse myself in the urban, metropolitan vibe of downtown Athens.
