Hello Family, Friends and Colleagues,
It is with much sorrow and regret to say that George (English George) passed away a few days ago due to complications of lung cancer. Many of you probably had him as a guide and if you ever had a chance to walk with him through Athens you knew how much passion and love he had for Greece and for the people he engaged with on tour.
I was just informed that his funeral will be held tomorrow 27/10/21 at the 3rd Cemetery of Athens at 11:30 a.m. Kafkasou 2, Nikea 184 54. I am sorry for such short notice but was just informed myself, yet i hope if you can not attend in body you will be there in spirit.
I personally had the pleasure and privilege of knowing George as a friend and co-worker for over 10 years and can say that he will be missed. RIP English George, you will never be forgotten ❤

George took my friend and I on a tour Of Athens. in 2015! It was so much fun, one of my favourite tours and George had such a welcoming and warm demeanour. Thank you George .🙏
My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of meeting George on a tour back in September 2017. We had a great time and it will always be one of my favourite days. What a great man, so passionate and knowledgeable. I will be thinking of him tomorrow 🙏🏻.
It's really sad to know about his demise. I had the pleasure to meet him on one the tour's of Athens around 2017-18. He was full of life and very likeable as a guide and as a person. Rest in peace George. :(
R. I. P my friend it was a pleasure to know you! 🙏❤️You will be greatly missed.
I went on a group tour with George on my first trip to Athens back in May 2018. He absolutely made that visit! So passionate, so knowledgeable and such a laugh. Μου λείπεις, Γεώργιος 😢
I had him on a walking tour in 2017. He was so full of life and it was the best walking tour I've ever had! I plan to go back next summer and was hoping to have him again. 🧡
Very sorry to hear. We still talk about him fondly and how fun he was showing us Athens in 2018. He mad everything interesting, even for our 2 teenagers.
Aw, that's sad to hear, as I took a tour with George and bumped into him again the day after and had a chat while he waited for his guests that day! Funnily enough I thought of him the other day, as there was an Athens travel show on tv. RIP George x
R.I.P George you will always be remembered 💔
RIP George 💗 (Melanie Studniberg)

Many may not know that the iconic statue, Venus de Milo, was found on the Greek island of Milos in 1820. She was "acquired" by Marquis de Riviere, the French ambassador to Greece at that time. He then presented her to King Louis XVIII, who donated her to the Louvre in 1821.

Perhaps the oldest bridge in Europe can be found in Greece; named the Arkadiko Bridge. It dates to the Mycenaean times, around 1300 BCE!

The Temple of Olympian Zeus
Construction began in the 6th century BC during the rule of the Athenian tyrants, who envisaged building the greatest temple in the ancient world, but it was not completed until the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD, some 638 years after the project had begun. During the Roman period the temple, which included 104 colossal columns, was renowned as the largest temple in Greece and housed one of the largest cult statues in the ancient world.
