Our guide is not only a guide but also an archeologist. Her name is Elina, she loves traveling and she finds history fascinating. Being an archaeologist gave her the opportunity to participate in excavations at Akrotiri in Santorini. Being a guide is her passion and in her own words "aside excavations, sharing the stories that stones and ancients shared with us to every traveler that decides to step into Athens is the one thing that I enjoy the most".
