Alex Elpiadis, private tour guide in Athens


Alex Elpiadis

Licensed tour guide in Athens.

Hi ! I would like to introduce myself, in brief.

I was born in 1977 . In 1999 I acquired the State License to carry out excursions, in archaeological sites and in protected historical parks all around Greece. My License number is: 06ΣΞ01868ΕΟ. 

I studied this profession for 3 years. Greece is the only country in the world, where tour guides courses last so long, because ( as you can imagine ) the history of this civilization counts already more than 4000 years!  Of course the license by itself does not make a tour guide better, but it is essential if you don't want to be visited by the police during the excursion, a situation that I really want to avoid!


I often ask myself: what exactly makes Greece so attractive? The landscape? The Culture? The History? Well, I would say all these combined! When you travel around Greece, you touch an eternity. Just like Odyssey who became a citizen of the world, soaking in him impressions and touches of all the countries he crossed on his way. Here you never really know , where the Myth ends, and where the History begins!  

The excursions menu is on the left  side. Just pick one and email me in order to arrange when to take off! 

For any questions, please feel free to contact me.
