Private Tour Guide in Athens, Greece

We were traveling in Greece in early June and hired Anastasia Gaitanou as a private tour guide in Athens, Greece who was recommended in Rick Steve's Athens travel guide. Having used Rick's recommendations for private guides in other countries, we felt comfortable using his recommendations for private tour guides in Athens. He was spot on again. Anastasia was not only completely delightful, but she planned a perfect day for us on our first full day in Athens. She catered to our interests in ancient Greece history and art and had an incredible wealth of knowledge. She also did a wonderful job walking us around the Plaka and helping us get to know the city. We've already recommended her to others.

If you don't mind me asking, could you give us an idea of the approximate cost to hire this private tour guide in Athens. Also, how many were in your group? Is there a maximum number of people allowed with the tour guide? Thank you!

Thanks for your report! Anastasia has served as the local guide in Athens for our group tours and also as a lead guide for our Greece itinerary. All three local guides listed in Rick's Athens chapter charge €50/hour.

It was just my husband and I. I can't remember what she charged, but I think Laura is correct.
