I am Eleni and I am native Athenian, I deeply love my city, its history and the complex contemporary life, I know every corner of it and its hidden gems, the sleepless city and night life, I will be more than glad to guide you and show you everything in the city. From an hour till the whole day be sure that you will have the most emotional experience in Athens!

I am interesting in travelling, getting to know other cultures, showing travelers around Athens and Greece, meeting people, connecting them, organizing events and having lots of fun.

In the past years I have been volunteering in the Public Relations of ICOMOS (International Council of Monuments and Sites), which has turned into a part-time job. I have also organised numerous events on a voluntary and professional basis - meetings, conferences and music events.

After a series of life changing events I decided to follow my passion and start my own start up, being fully committed to promote the cultural heritage of Athens. I am still a member of ICOMOS and registered for Athens Convention & Visitors Bureau as Athens Destination Specialist (ADSP) and also a social entrepreneur.

Can't wait to meet you in one of my 3 Athens tours! Check them out and choose the one you like best!"
