After returning back to Greece, I began to work with the travel agencies, help- ing them with transfers from the airport to hotels, cruise ships or ferry boats, anything to make their clients’ trip to Greece easier. From the early years of my life I had an inability to imitate my father and say that when I grow up, I will become a professional driver like him. I am in the Second generation of taxi drivers and I’ve managed to succeed my dream in Greece, because I love this profession.
Trips to Pelion
Then I began to take people on excursions around Volos, to the Pelion, museums, shopping trips (I have saved many people’s money by being able to bargain for them) and to places like the lovely village of Makrinitsa where you can see some of the most beautiful sunsets from the “balcony of Volos”. I started studying the history of my country so I could offer information to m customers and be more than just a driver. My experience in Germany was the greatest prac- tice for me, to learn to speak both German and English.
Trips to Delphi and Meteora
Then I started taking people to places like Delphi with its famous Oracle, Meteora and the monasteries to the top of these big rocks. I also took people a two days trip to the historic Nafplion, the former capital of Greece, Mycenae and its impressive ruins, Corinth with the canal and the fortress above the city and many other places. To all of the excursions we stop at beaches, quiet taverns, re- mote churches and monasteries, because when you see Greece, you have the freedom to see everything that captures your interest.
I have a brand new Mercedes Taxi. Full air conditioning and comfortable seats with leather interior. I drive very carefully and I do not smoke. In my car I carry the latest guidebooks and brochures for all the sights we are going to visit, so that, if you get tired of looking at the beautiful countryside, you can read about where we are going and of course, ask me some questions about what we will see. I can guarantee to you, that if you take a journey around.
