Chris Gravas

My name is Chris and I have a passion for unique experiences with an authentic character, cultural awakenings and nature explorations! I am also a part-time musician, occasionally performing with my rock/blues band in local venues. In the meantime, as a local agency, we keep traveling extensively throughout Greece to expand our knowledge of our country while making sure all our trusted partners maintain the high-quality standards that we aspire to offer our clients. We are very proud to call ourselves true Greece Insiders!

My traveling approach is based in two fundamental principles: Offering a truly memorable experience and getting you the best value for every dime spent! My challenge, commitment and personal goal, as your planning partner, is to offer you my 101%!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Families, couples, honeymoons, gastronomy & wine, active adventures, cultural discoveries, nature explorations all over Greece!"

How did you get involved in travel?

"Having worked for many years in Sales & Marketing roles across multiple industries, traveling has always been my passion, taking every chance for personal trips across Greece, Europe and America. I first started as a part-time travel specialist some years ago, while also living & working in Chicago, USA, in a transitional period of my life. It was something I immediately fell in love with, and I decided to further pursue it full-time. As a life-long learner, I am constantly amazed by the vast wealth of my own country!

Greece remains a treasure of virgin, "unconquered" places and experiences to visit, see, taste, smell, feel, cherish...The opportunity to share my country with the rest of the world, and help them witness its unparalleled beauty, is both a challenge and a blessing, for which I am grateful!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will never forget one of the road trips I experienced as a teenager with my family, starting from the cosmopolitan port of Ancona, then on to beautiful Venice, then to the picturesque small mountain town of Innsbruck, Austria and also Nurnberg in Germany, until resting in the wonderful Evian lake-side town of Montreux in Switzerland! This is a memory I cherish and I am thankful for the valuable time I enjoyed there with my parents and my two brothers.

Also, summer 2017, I lived and worked in the island of Amorgos in Greece for a whole summer season. Apart from being amazed by the natural beauty of this Cyclades island, I was deeply touched by the charm of the Aegean Sea and its everlasting sense. I had never felt so free in my life before!"
