Hi! I'm Nick. MIT '85 and Northwestern '87. I also have an MBA from INSEAD in France since 1990. I'm a wealth manager since 1982. I have also worked in Brussels and for Touche Ross and for Rothmans public affairs. I've traveled extensively in North America and Europe: NYC, Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, Mass., England, Germany, France, Portugal, Italy, Warsaw, Sofia, Istanbul. Worked for Dropbox global Support in 2016-2017 helping American, Canadian, Australian, British and other clients resolve Billing and Payments and urgent product use issues. Why choose my tailor made tour of Athens City: 1. I've lived in Athens for many years. Kolonaki, Patissia, Areos Park, Kallithea and Pangrati. 2. I've worked as a private bodyguard and driver and I know both ancient and modern Athens and Greece and their history, society, economy and politics. 3. I provide facts and details and do it fast unless you have more time. This style appeals to a niche of visitors to Greece. 4. Due to the flex schedule of my current job, we can do a free guided tour any time of the day, any day of the week, for minimum 1 hr up to eg 24 hrs, except 14:15-15:15. Please book early and provide info on what type of information you need from the tour and in general what you want out of the tour. Please be specific in order to maximize the value of the tour to you and to your group if you have one. Irrespective of nationality. All nationalities and religions welcome as long as they speak English as a first or a foreign language. 5. You will be secure during all parts of the walk. I know all parts of Athens and its risks. Security and privacy: Dress casually is the general rule. Ask me for advice on this. You don't have to have your picture taken to market my next tours. You have to give me the info at least 48 hours before the event to help me tailor your tour to your needs. After of course you receive mine (copy of my passport and ID). This info is to make you feel informed and secure. To better address your needs in the tour. 6. I know Greek and EU bureaucracy and overlegislation well. Ask me for a briefing. 7. My point of view is multi-cultured. My friends in Athens are mostly non Greek. 8. You can ask me any question you want any time during the walk (ie fully interactive). 9. I can explain Athens, Greece and the EU from your perspective, not Greece's, provided you let me know which that is, either when or after you book the walk. 10. The tour can be on foot and/or public transport (1.40 per person for 90 minutes), your rented car or a local taxi or the hop on tour buses. Acropolis costs 20 so u go up after I brief you and I will wait for you at the entrance. I will take you 20 minutes. 12. Teams of 1 to 20, national or inter-national and inter-cultural. Looking forward to hearing from you. Please make sure you specify when you book the start time and duration that suits you best, where you want to meet, and the types of places you want to be taken to.
