I won’t let a chance for a new trip pass me by. Originating from Naxos and Crete I am a true islander at heart. Born and raised in the sea breeze of Piraeus, I love the history and every single corner of this extraordinary part of Attica. Traveling is my way to offer different angles, letting the traveler experience a destination to the fullest. It is the only way to get richer, broaden your mind and never stop learning. It is my source of energy, my battery charger. I want to pronounce all the everyday expressions I can learn in a destination, just to communicate with locals in their language.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Selected destinations across Greece are as follows: Athens, Chania, Santorini, Zagori and Peloponnese.
I can tailor activities meet exactly the traveler's preferences with various themes such as: wine & gastronomy, city discovery, culture & history, art & tradition, well-being and nature & outdoors."

How did you get involved in travel?

"My aspiration is to contribute to Greece fulfilling its potential as a destination of choice for international travelers seeking quality, year-round experiences."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Indulge in the sunset of the Old Venetian Harbor in Crete, drinking raki and talking to everyday people."

2 quick stops athens & santorini , Greece - Oct 1 - Oct 1, 2018

To say this experience was amazing would be an understatement. I spent countless hours researching the sites and monuments in Athens and put together a list of all the ones that interested me and my Husband. I sent a message to KimKim as they were the only company I found that not only put personalized tours together (forget the canned tours where you only get a few minutes at each site with a large group of people and are rushed away due to a schedule and don't always get to see every site... read more

To say this experience was amazing would be an understatement. I spent countless hours researching the sites and monuments in Athens and put together a list of all the ones that interested me and my Husband. I sent a message to KimKim as they were the only company I found that not only put personalized tours together (forget the canned tours where you only get a few minutes at each site with a large group of people and are rushed away due to a schedule and don't always get to see every site you're interested in) but they spent time and energy helping us put together the most memorable tour for our Honeymoon. I have told as many people I can about this company as I feel as though if you are traveling to an unknown land - you should get the best most valuable experience - KimKim delivered over and above our expectations. We were greeted, on time, by the most amazing and friendly tour guide, Cici. She was lovely, knowledgeable, respectful and really spent time catering to our desires and interests. Cici was not the only KimKim representative we interacted with - from the date we showed interest until after we left Athens, we were given advice, suggestions and support for the remainder of our trip to Santorini and Crete. We saw everything we wanted to see, had a great lunch to break up the day and then, a private driving tour of the entire city. we saw every monument, all the best parts of Athens and really felt a connection to our guide. once we paid for our package we were assured everything was included, transportation, tickets to attractions and the most thorough explanation of the monuments and their glorious history. There is not one negative thing I can say as we reflect back on the most amazing experience we were provided with. We plan to travel to Thailand next and we will absolutely be putting out trust in KimKim to help us plan another outstanding experience for us. I have never felt so taken care of by a company in the past and believe they really try their hardest to ensure each one of their clients is completely comfortable and satisfied. their response time to messages is quick and they really made us feel completely comfortable before, during and after our excursion.

Thank you KimKim for the most memorable honeymoon experience anyone could ask for!
With Extreme Gratitude,
Marc & Joshua

Greek small ship tour, Greece - Sep 25 - Oct 6, 2018

Traveler: Nancy C. - Local specialist: Angeliki Katsifaraki

Angeliki did a great job with the arrangements. The drivers were extremely reliable and helpful. It was too bad that the weather interfered with some of the excursions that we were most looking forward to. The hotel accommodations were very nice and well located. The local guides were well informed and entertaining. We really enjoyed the volcano tour at Santorini and of course the Acropolis and the other experiences we had. Angeliki was very diligent about keeping in touch and accommodating our needs.

Day trip in crete from chania, Greece - Jul 23 - Jul 23, 2018

Traveler: Debra C. - Local specialist: Angeliki Katsifaraki

Yiannis was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. On our full day tour of Cretian villages. We enjoyed the history & culture museum, cheese factory, bakery, restaurant and distillery tours. In each location we met the proud and passionate business owners who showed us Cretian hospitality. Yiannis was the best guide! Lunch was delicious as well.
