I have studied business administration and marketing. I love traveling and my dream is to visit as many countries and experience as many cultures as I can. I focus on local themes and civilizations and I always try to enjoy my trips through locals perspective. I live in Athens and I always look at my city like the home port after a big journey. I like strolling around the city discovering new places, feeling its vibrant atmosphere and its huge historic identity that surprises you in every corner. I adore the sea and thats why I stay at the south sea coast of the city and I experience my life like an adventurous traveler even in my own hometown. Full profile

The hills of Athens tour was amazing. Kostas had a very unique and interesting view on the history of Athens. He not only talked about the history from a military standpoint but he also talked about his family and their history in the city. Kostas as a tour guide was great to walk around the city with and generally a great person to know even if your are in Athens or not.

I came upon this tour on the Vayable site, and thought it would be an interesting way to visit Athens for the first time... it did not disappoint! One could tell that Kostas was very enthusiastic about Athens' past with good reason -- its military and governmental history, the beauty and development of the national gardens and Zappeion, hidden architectural elements and characteristics of the Plaka area, smaller, narrower walkways known only to those in the immediate neighborhood, true examples of the "recycling" of building parts (and of structures used as prisons, horse stables and then to protect goods from pillaging) from the past to present...It all was very fascinating and brought to light by Kostas' unwavering ability to bring the past alive by his commentary on it all. The tour culminated with a birds eye view of the surrounding areas at the top of Philopapou hill as dusk settled in, with sounds of Greek celebration and singing in the far distance, a bit of wine and some Greek savories to complete the beautiful evening scene. Many Thanks to Kostas for bringing to life the history of the many hills of Athens!
