Our in house team

Each and every one of our staff is dedicated to the task of offering our clients the highest quality services and are responsible for you getting all of your questions about our tours, both scheduled and private, transfers and general information concerning your stay in Athens answered within 24 hours 7 days a week.


Despina Savvidou

The Operations Director and the driving force behind the Athens Walking Tours and a guide herself for over 30 years. Despina hand picks all of our guides one by one and still answers most emails personally because she chooses to maintain personal contact with her clients. She has a passion and enthusiasm about guiding as if every tour is the first time she guides.


Yiannis Yiannakakis 

Yiannis is the Managing Director of the Athens Walking Tours as well as Despina’s husband. His strategic thinking and strong vision for the AWT is the perfect combination to Despina’s fiery creative passion. Together they make it work.


Anthoula Gioldasi 

Our Marketing Coordinator. Anything and everything that is significant to the success of our tours goes through her. She is a delightful and very intelligent young mom who is absolutely crazy about her 4 yr. old daughter Katia.


Maria Yiannakaki 

Maria is the person who will make sure that everything concerning your tour will go smoothly, that your transfers will be at the right place at the right time and that your questions and requests are answered within 24 hours.


Aris Yiannakakis

IT and New Media Manager- Aris is our angel and our savior when the screen on our computers suddenly goes blank or when our emails go haywire. But more than that, he is always ready to offer a helping hand in a friendly and constructive manner and is usually the best solution finder on our team. Aris is also responsible for internet sales and marketing.

Aris is not anymore an active member of our team; he works in Google Ireland now. We miss him and we are grateful for his tremendous contribution to the development of the AWT but we wish him every success in the future. We are sure that he is going to continue to develop his abilities and skills and he will have a bright career.
