Hi! I'm Nick, MIT alum. I speak English, French and Modern and Ancient Greek school and chat in German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Irish and other languages because I've traveled extensively in North America, Europe via air, train, car rentals even hitchhiling and worked for Dropbox in 2016-2017. Why choose my tours: 1. I'm a European/international affairs blogger since 2003 2. I know both ancient and modern Athens and Greece and their history, society, economy and politics well. 3. They are free, fast and full of facts and details. Due to the flex schedule of my 2019 job, we can do this any time of the day, every day, except 14:15-15:15 (lunch). 4. You will be secure. I know Athens, its risks and look like a security guard. 5. Pii: You don't have to have your picture taken to market my next tours. 6. I know Greek and EU bureaucracy and overlegislation well. 7, My POV is multi-cultured and friends 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 you book the walk or at the start of the walk. 10. The tour can be on foot and/or public transport (1.6E per person for 100 minutes), your car or rented car or taxi or the tour buses. I don't charge by the minute re the tip. 11. If you book in advance, can design special walks for your team at no extra cost. Your team pays only via tips. 12. Groups of 2 to 20, national or inter-national and inter-cultural. Looking forward to hearing from you. Please specify when you book the start time that suits you best, where u want to meet, and the types of places you want to be taken to. You will. Safely. Nick
About the tour
Athens is my native city and I love it. 2018 Athens has great areas! It also has some parts destroyed by the 2010 Greek Crisis. This innovative tour is offered to visitors who wish to get a taste of Athens' Other Side. It is offered in daylight or nightime. I walk you through Bronx like parts of the city and you experience first hand the homeless, the excluded, the red lights. Not an easy tour but I will keep you safe. Cost: your and my public transport. You tip in the end. Times: 11am-1pm, 9pm-11pm. The morning one includes free food at the Greek Church yard at the center. You dress down and bring a bottle of water. U leave valuables at your hotel and take little money and a photocopy of your passport. Omonia, Kotzia Square, Metaxourgio, Agios Panteleimonas, Fylis St,
