My name is Aristotle, and I am an archaeologist and private tourist guide, based in Athens, Greece.
I lead a double life: as an Archaeologist, I seek clues of the past, as a Licensed Tourist Guide, I try to infect people with my enthusiasm for all things old. History is my passion, as well as my job. I can feel it all around us and I like nothing better than to make people see the past as vividly as I can. I use every means to this end – pictures, pantomime, recordings, you name it.
Except for a brief stint at University, I’ve lived in Athens all my life and know it like the back of my hand. Its museums and sites are like a second home to me and I know most of its secret haunts and charming spots. But Greece is more than Athens and the Acropolis, though some tend to forget that. The country is full of amazing sights and natural wonders, some well-known and well-trodden and others so off the beaten path you won’t find them in any guide book.
This blog is an attempt to share with the world my passion about the history and archaeology of Greece and all the things that make this country special. It is also an attempt to help people who know nothing of my country into making the best choices in order to best enjoy their holiday, if they choose to spend it here, and provide some useful information before they arrive.
I’d like to fit it all in, in one go, but I’m afraid I’ll have to limit myself to posting one bit of information at a time, whenever I have time to.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I’d be very happy to answer. I have gathered several in my “FAQs” list, but I know I can’t possibly cover them all.
And, if you like what you see here and happen to find yourself bound for Greece, I’d be happy to show you around.
You may look up some of the tours I usually do in my tours page – they are just a sample because I like tailoring each tour to fit individual needs and preferences.
You may read some clients opinion about me at my reviews page.
