WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE!
I'm a qualified licensed tourist guide in Greek, English and German for the
whole country of Greece (ID badge number 33ΣΞ00340Ε0) by the
Greek Ministry of Tourism, graduate of state School of Tourist Guides,
national certification for guiding in Greece since 1988.
I'm also a graduate of vocational studies for conservation of antiquities.
I enjoy showing visitors of all ages and backgrounds the rich cultural and
natural heritage of my home country and help them understand the
ancient and modern life in Greece.
I have a long experience in guiding religious biblical tours throughout
Greece for the visitors who have an interest in the history of Christianity.
My hometown and birthplace, Thessaloniki, has a very rich heritage of
ancient Greek & Roman, Byzantine, Jewish and Ottoman monuments
and stories to offer to a visitor, based on your interests.
It's also internationally famous for its gastronomy, ie markets, tavernas,
wineries, so that's another highlight one must always experience while here.
I live in Thessaloniki, but my work as a guide takes me to places all over Greece.
I'm a member of the Tourist Guide Union of Thessaloniki and an
accredited tourist guide trainer by the World Federation of Tourist Guide
Associations (WFTGA) and the European Federation of Tourist Guide
I'm also interested in guiding visitors with special needs, i.e. motor and
visual impairments and I am certified by the European Federation of
Tourist Guide Associations and by the European Network for Accessible
Tourism as a T-GUIDE for guiding people with learning difficulties and I have been doing some expert training to other guides about them.
My latest training and certification in 2019 as a tourist guide is done by the World Food Travel Association to conduct culinary tours on gastronomy, visiting food markets, wineries, local producers, tasting traditional food and drinks of Greece.
Contact me to help you with your own tailor-made tours, private or
group, depending on your time, interests and budget.
Secure payment transactions by PayPal are possible.
I'm looking forward to welcoming you here in Greece!
