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 experience or customizable food tour in Athens are 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.

Athens Evening Food Tour: 10 Tastings

I contacted Marina to arrange a custom tour of Athens on my arrival day to the city. Essentially, I wanted to blend an intro tour along with some street food and a wine tasting. Marina ended up planning exactly what I was hoping for!

Starting off in the center of the city, she gave me an overview of the central neighborhoods. Along the way, we stopped in a few places for traditional snacks and finished at a tasting she had arranged at a wine bar, where I was able to try 4 very different and wonderful Greek wines paired with cheeses and lamb prosciutto. I enjoyed the wine bar so much that I returned the following night for more! Marina also gave me a bunch of other suggestions for places and things to try during my time in Athens.

If you're really into food and wine, there cannot be a better guide in Athens than Marina! Thank you so much!

Athens Evening Food Tour: 10 Tastings

Marina was a gracious hostess on the Athens Food Tour. The food was great, but I especially loved the personal touch that Marina added when explaining much of the history behind the food. It was a fabulous experience for me!

Athens Evening Food Tour: 10 Tastings

Marina was a great host and catered the food tour to our preferences. In the time we were with her, she gave a crash course on Greek cuisine and was very knowledgeable on other matters. Highly recommend this tour with her, particularly if you are short on time and want to have a preview of all things Greece.
