George is a wonderful guide: he loves his city and he's incredibly knowledgeable not only on classical history, but also on the modern history and urban development of athens. you will get a very heartfelt view of the city, and see it through a wide lens with both its good and bad sides. most of all, george is very warm and a pleasure to talk to: he welcomed all my questions and we got to delve into larger conversations connecting the spirit of athens to life today. highly recommended!"

I had a great tour with lost in athens. the guide, george, guided me for approximately 3 hours and gave us interesting facts about the history and architecture of major sights in his city, but also referenced to the greece of today, its challenges and its culture. the tour was very well organized and george was a very welcoming and professional guide with profound knowledge. i can highly recommend the tour."
