Private Guides In Athens

There is no standard recipe for traveling. Nevertheless, based on the majority of situations, visitors have expressed that either a bus tour or even a self-guided tour are seriously lacking compared to private guides. The advantages are obvious and the testimonies cogent. So, if you have set your heart on having a trip that stands out, then going with private guides will be the only choice and best thing to do in Athens.

The primary and most substantial benefit of having your own private guide in Athens is the immediate access to a plethora of places which would be unreachable otherwise. To be more exact, local guides know their way around the city and its sites. Therefore, they can save you a lot of time from waiting in lines or going the wrong direction as well as avoid wasting your time on sights that may be not of your interest. A personalized tour is worth so much more.

Another reason that proves that a private guide in Athens is a smart move is the inside view of the local culture. To begin with they can speak the native language which gives you an edge when it comes to interaction with locals. They are also aware of the cultural dos and don'ts of the city so that you refrain from uncomfortable situations. Their insider perspective on culture is bound to open a view of the city that few visitors get to see.

Let us not forget about your safety! Visitors, particularly solo visitors, grant themselves some extra security when they have an Athens' private guide by their side. It is less likely to get lost in the city or get attacked by robbers etc when a local stands beside you. They are bound to guide you through the safest routes assuring your physical integrity.

There is only one reason why private guides in Athens will go a long way to ensure a pleasant traveling experience for you - they adore the city. They have lived part of or perhaps their whole life in Athens by choice because they have seen aspects of it which are unknown to the public yet appealing. So, they want to share their knowledge and love for Athens with you to make your trip memorable.

Albert Julia

Julia's Authentic Greek Lunch

We experienced a comfortable and delicious home-cooked meal at Julia's home. We ate on the patio, which was beautiful. She and her husband were very hospitable. The food and conversation were excellent.

Allen Melina

Greek Cooking Class with Organic Products

Our cooking experience with Melina was one of the highlights of our trip to Athens.
Melina was very responsive and helpful with the lead up to our tour.
Her cooking/teaching facility was obviously well designed with culinary teaching in mind.
The best part was the wonderful experience of shopping at small local shops, prepping the ingredients, and cooking a complete authentic Greek meal.
Melina's vast experience and knowledge of nutrition and traditional Greek cooking made the experience extra special. She passed on to us the origin and history of all the ingredients we used to prepare the meal.
The extra bonus was being able to sit down and enjoy a wonderful Greek dinner with your wonderful teacher and host.

Ed Marilena

A customized trip with Marilena

Four of us had a chance to “be Greek” for the evening as Marilena whipped up copicious amounts of food that represented her family and culture. It was a lot of food and drink. Along with the meal we had an awesome time talking to her and her sous chef Dimitras. Those conversations really take the experience to a higher level. Well worth the cost, well worth the time.
