As the author of the thriller science fiction novels “The Second Device” and “The Third Device,” I needed to do some firsthand research in Greece as I prepared to write my final novel in the trilogy. I am forever grateful to Nadia, who spent three days with me catering her tours and comments to my specific needs. The wealth of knowledge this marvelous woman has about Greek history, mythology, art, archaeology, and the ancient Greek language is boundless, and she made them all come alive for me in ways that I didn’t expect. From the museums and Parthenon ruins of Athens to the Oracle at Delphi, Nadia shared her passion for all things Greek with me, and my third novel will be all the better for the experience. Thank you, Nadia!

Our guide Nadia gave our family great care with her enthusiastic explanations of not only the artifacts and Greek genius with structure, but more importantly,with engrossing, detailed explanation of the glorious civilization, abundant with mythology, art history, and archeology,with an historical perspective for western civilization. Though the Acropolis is itself awe-inspiring and should be compulsory for all earnest visitors, her Democracy tour was an absolute stunning insight into western civilization that marked the high point of our classical experience that my family and I will never forget (we still recount and discuss the education that she gave us).This accredited educator will become your "face-of-Athens"- she left an unforgettable impression.

We completed a walking tour & Acropolis tour with Nadia who was generous, attentive & very knowledgeable. Loved both days despite the intense heat. Having someone to show you, point out interesting facts, discuss mythology & help the surroundings come alive. Highly recommend her service if you are looking for small in depth tours.

Nadia made our whole Athens experience. She is smart, extremely knowledgeable, informative and fun to be with. We did a 6 hour tour and fit the Acropolis, the Acropolis museum, Plaka and some of modern Athens into our tour. We only had one day in Athens and Nadia really helped us feel like we got a good taste. It is a fascinating city, but Nadia really was wonderful. Thank you Nadia for such a great visit to Athens. I love your city.

Today we had the distinct pleasure and privilege of being guided through the Acropolis Museum and Acropolis by Nadia Pavlikaki. Nadia demonstrated and displayed a passion for history, archaeology and the people of Greece and this was evident through the lessons in history that she shared with us. Nadia provided us with a small private group tour which was informative, rich is history and painted the perfect canvas for what was the history of the Acropolis, Athens, Greece and its people. This tour was truly one of the best tours we’ve ever taken. Nadia was warm, friendly, engaging and a wealth of knowledge. This Acropolis Museum and Acropolis tour has certainly exceeded all expectations and we highly recommended Nadia if you’re in Athens looking to tour. Warmest regards,
We recently had the opportunity to do an Acropolis tour with Nadia. We made arrangements long distance for a private tour, but when Nadia had the opportunity to add three more guests she was kind enough to ask if the additional guests would be ok with us. She was very considerate and we did enjoy the 3 extra tour guests who ended up living only a two hour drive from our home. Anyway, we had a rather cold and windy day, but Nadia's sunny disposition made the tour a happy experience for all. Our tour was in the afternoon, and Nadia was still right on time and ready to go, even though she had done a tour for school children that same morning. A wonderful guide and you can be certain that she will treat you right. Very kind and considerate! Bob & David

My wife and I recently took a six hour tour of Athens' main sites with Nadia and all I can say is that we were blown away by how great she was. That is a long tour for someone to have to guide people through but she was energetic throughout and so knowledgable about everything from mythology to history to architecture. She really is an amazing tour guide and really a great person, as well, that you will be more than happy to spend time with I’m sure. She was really very reasonably priced as well in my opinion. If you are spending your time and money to get to Athens, a good guide is really worth every penny to get the most out of your short time there. When we return we will definitely be in touch again to do another tour with her, as there are many areas of Athens to explore.
