My approach in traveling is wrapped around two basic ideas: 1) Having a great experience and moments to remember 2) Get the best value for every dime spent. My challenge, commitment and personal goal, as a local specialist for Travel12 in Greece, is to provide these two principles to our travelers, 100%!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I believe that my specialty lies in grasping the needs of others and provide the best possible ideas and solutions to give you a unique experience. I welcome any chance to prove it to you!"
How did you get involved in travel?
"Having a great deal of experience in Sales & Marketing across multiple markets, tourism and traveling has always been of big interest to me, cherishing and enjoying every chance for personal trips across Europe and America. Greece, however, remains a treasure of virgin, "unconquered" places and experiences to visit, see, taste, smell, feel, indulge...The opportunity to share my country with the rest of the world and (hopefully) help them see its unparalleled beauty through my eyes, is both a challenge and a blessing, for which I am grateful."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Summer 2017, I stayed and worked in the island of Amorgos for a whole summer season. Apart from being taken by the natural beauty of this Cyclades island, I was able to grasp the true sense of Greek sea and its everlasting connection to eternity. I had never felt so free in my life before."
Featured trips & expertise
This excursion takes you through the major highlights of the country's capital and two of its most popular islands, all in a 6-day timespan. In Athens, you'll visit the iconic Parthenon constructed in 438 BC, then go souvenir shopping at the bustling Monastiraki flea market. In Mykonos and Santorini, you'll lay on famous beaches, explore agricultural villages, eat fresh cuisine, and of course watch the sunset.
Travel for two weeks across a wide span of Greece's top attractions, from the clifftops of Meteora to the Cretan seaside. You'll start by winding your way through the many columns of mainland historic attractions like ancient Delphi and Olympia. Go out to sea to Santorini for a taste of the Cyclades, then end your trip in Crete's second-largest city.
See why Santorini and Mykonos are two of the most popular Greek islands on this itinerary. After an introduction to Athens, you'll sail through these Cycladic spots, visiting glittering beaches, Classical sanctuaries, and stunning views.
October is an ideal time to visit Santorini. Many seasonal flights and restaurants finish for the year this month which means that, despite it being shoulder season, the crowds that filled Santorini over recent months are gone. And yet the weather remains very pleasant: the sun is still out, and the heavy autumn rain holds off for at least most of the month. October also sees the opening of the year's wine barrels on Santorini, giving you many excuses to stick around and join in the fun.

Great time of year to visit Greece! · Greece - Jan 8 - Jan 21, 2020
The positives - I would definitely recommend using Chris.
Very impressed with the overall trip of 2 weeks we booked with Chris at kimkim. The organization and schedule was perfect. Every driver, guide, and event was exactly on time. We did not wait on a single person over two weeks . When there was a problem once, they handled immediately. Every private tour guide was the best except for one that was just average. Our best guide was Penny at Delphi, that engaged all of us but especially... read more
Two weeks in Greece....Athens, Crete, Santorini and Naxos · Greece - Oct 25 - Nov 7, 2019
This was our first experience with kimkim and our first trip to Greece. We used kimkim for this trip because it was a ‘last minute’ decision to go and simply didn’t have the time to do all the planning ourselves. Overall, it was an excellent experience. Not only was it a big timesaver for planning, the level of service throughout was excellent, incorporating activities into the trip that we would otherwise probably would not have included. Chris from Travel12 in Athens worked with us on... read more
