Joined Virtual Experiences & Seminars

Since traveling is still not feasible for most parts of the world, myself and a number of selected associate licensed guides have decided to get back in action, after all these many months of having not being able to do what we love, meet travelers and present our country's culture and history to them. We would love to entertain you and inform you about different historical sites and topics related to Greece from the comfort of your home joining our live meetings.

Every week we will be scheduling different meetings and presentations, that you will be able to join if you are interested.

This service is offered free of charge and no compensation of any kind is expected. In case you would like to support us by sending a donation for our guides you will be able to do so through PayPal.

These live virtual experiences take place with the use of Zoom video meeting software. Let us know which ones interest you and we'll send you the details for joining us.

    The spanakopita cooking class was SUPER! It was easy to understand, perfectly paced, and entertaining also. Learning how to make dakos was a bonus. The spanakopita smells and looks so good! We look forward to the next class.

    Nikos did a wonderful job weaving together some of the region's history, scenic geography, and cultural traditions into an enjoyable and informative 45 minute presentation. It made us want to spend some time in Epirus on our next trip to Greece!

    Niki's two talks on Ancient Olympia were both very enjoyable and informative. The visual aids really helped translate the videos of the ruins as they appear today into what it all looked like 2,500 years ago. And, she is so knowledgeable and well spoken on the subject that we were left wanting still more! But, on to other presentations by members of her team instead...

    Dorina did a great job showing us around the Acropolis in her usual enthusiastic style, supported by equally good visual aids. The presentation was both informative and enjoyable. We only wish we could be back there again in person with you! ευχαριστώ (thank you)

Client Testimonials

Niki's knowledge of the history there as well as how she related it to all of us was a perfect balance!
Julie
Niki knows her stuff, and she comes across as an intelligent and credible source of verified information. My wife and I used her as our group tour guide in Olympia and then again in Athens, and we were very pleased.
Tony
I definitely recommend other cruisers to book independently through Niki Vlachou.
