I would like to promote tourism to Greece through these walks. To allow people to come to Athens , be entertained and orientated over a few hours and then continue their stay in this wonderful country. I'm an experienced business man and I'm a health professional. I've created a team of walkers who will be able to walk the tourists through the center of Athens. The walkers are all residents in Greece. I'm Greek and from a village in central Greece, I've lived all over the world and believe I'm in a unique position to help the people understand Greece and it's culture and health systems in a fun and entertaining manner.

I can not recommend George highly enough. One of the best tours I’ve ever done, he was knowledgable about everything while also being incredibly entertaining. I feel like I learnt so much about the city while also making a great friend. It was an absolute privilege spending the afternoon with him and I feel very lucky for such a great experience. Thank you George!

We took the tour first day we arrived in Athens and it was a good decision because it oriented us for our stay in the city.

George gave us a lot of useful informations during the tour and it was a pleasant guide.

I definitely recommend this tour with George as guide for other tourists.

Our walk was head by Maria. Maria is very enthusiastic and simple person. The walk was very nice, not rushed, and we had a general vision of Athens and a pleasant walk that ended with a little Greek offer in the end. We recommend Maria
