Guided tours in Greece
For Greeks who would like to know their country better as well as German speaking residents of Greece or just tourists who plan on visiting our country, deb8 offers scheduled guided tours all over Greece.
Vassilis Siametis, a Historian, Archaeologist, Papyrologist, Graduate with distinctions (valedictorian) and temporary Associate of the Athens School of Tour Guides can guide you through the world of the Greek civilization (ancient, medieval and contemporary).
With him you will discover the places and learn of the facts that led to the birth of one of the most ancient civilizations of humanity, you will understand how and why the Ancient Greek world gradually turned into the theocratic Byzantine Empire, while, at the same time, you will catch a glimpse of the mechanisms that allowed for the creation of the “Greek element” despite the diverse, and more often than not, violent course of the Greek history.
Without wasting valuable time, Mr. Siametis will enlighten you on the idiosyncracy of the locals, their daily lives and preferences as well as their most noteworthy rites and rituals.
If you wish, you can avoid the highly touristic paths, but follow him off the beaten track, to places less popular, yet equally important and interesting.
Mr. Siametis’s ultimate goal is that at the end of each guided tour, as many of his customers as possible (including those who participate in large groups) feel that they did not just visit Greece, but that they now hold a piece of “their own Greece”.
