I'm a historian. I came to Greece from Ukraine more than 25 years ago. I like guiding you in Athens.





My story

Greece is an amazing country! It is not just the place where the modern Western civilization was born. It’s a country with amazing historical continuity. Let's  take a chance to visit it and its rich cultural heritage unravel before your eyes! When I came to this country, I have never imagined I would love its treasures so much! The mossy stones of the Acropolis, the whisper of the waves at Cape Sounio, the mysteries of Eleusis, the mythical Olympia, the ascetic beauty of the Orthodox Meteora, the Venetian fortresses of Medon and Koroni in the Peloponnese... The list could be endless! And of course her people! Descendants of Socrates and Plato, Pericles and Alexander the Great, Ioannis Kapodistrias and Charilaos Trikoupis, are peculiar, talented and proud Greeks. Take a look at ancient and modern Greece with the eyes of a local, look into its corners accessible to few, listen to its music, enjoy its cuisine. GREECE is gorgeous!

What do I do here?

I have always loved books and travel. Perhaps that is why I became a historian, and many years later, already in Greece, a guide. Now I am guiding my guests here.

What's the best of my city?

The Athens and its surroundings are unforgettable. Even a few hours is enough for you to find something of your own here! Stop, look around, listen... Let's walk along its old city's suburbs like Anafiotika, Plaka, Monastyraki. The Trypodon Street of Plaka, has existed for 26 centuries and has never changed its name!

My tours secret sauce

Athens is a city of many faces. The ancient past is adjacent to the efficiency of the European capital. The Greeks are very patriotic and keep their traditions. At the monument to the unknown soldier, not far from the Greek parliament, an honorary watch is being carried out, the Evzones, the presidential guard. Rain, snow, heat... Every morning the guards climb the ancient Acropolis, raising the Greek flag and paying tribute to the great ancestors! I love all faces of Greece. As local I can show the Athens as you have never seen it. Acropolis, Ancient Agora, Kerameikos, old city Plaka, different walking tours, all its museums (Archeological, Museum of Acropolis, etc.) are in my agenta.
