Hello everybody! My name is Vanessa, I am from Athens and I am a social researcher / statistician.

I love travelling and meeting foreigners for as long as I can remember. I lived in London for several years, and have travelled to many European countries, USA, Latin America and the Middle East. I started showing people around Athens and Greece in 2006, and have been doing it ever since.

My purpose as a guide is to make you feel like a local and to have a day you will remember for a long time! We can go around Athens, go to the beach in summer, cook and eat together and talk about life in Greece, especially during the crisis. Or we can listen to some Greek music, and I can teach you some Greek words to use during your trip here. I can also give you tips for other places you are going to in Greece, and suggest the perfect island for you, depending on what you like.

Needless to say, we can design a day in Athens for you, the way you always imagined it! Feel free to contact me!

Wonderful insightful evening. Got a peek at real Athens nightlife. And learned my way around so I could go visit the markets later. Highly recommend.

Getting to walk around Athens and taste local specialties was a must for my husband and I and Vanessa's food tour did not disappoint! Vanessa was very friendly and met us in an easy to find location. She showed us around some of her favorite spots many of which were only visited by locals and customized our tour to our interests and asked about any food allergies or preferences. We chose to taste smaller portions of multiple things rather than sitting and having a larger meal and sampled everything from greek coffee and yogurt to cheese from Crete. We finished our tour with full stomachs and Vanessa even left us with several restaurants to try during the remainder of our time in Athens! Overall, this is a great tour and a side of Athens you (and your stomach) don't want to miss!

Vanessa did a great job showing us around Athens for a nighttime food tour. We went to a lot of places and tried a lot of different things we normally wouldn't have by ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour and I will be contacting her again when we return to Greece, as I know we will sometime in the near future.
