Chris Gravas

My approach in travelling 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 travelling 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."
