I have organised my first adventure ski trip in mount Parnassos for my classmates at the age of 14. One year later, I was lucky enough to surf in Oahu Hawaii. Since then I have never stopped exploring the world, and have dedicated my life in discovering how travel shapes our personalities and our relationships. How we become better and transform ourselves and others through travel. This journey is an ongoing process during which my goal is to evolve together why all those who share similar values.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"We specialize in both yachting and land tours, in the best locations that Greece has to offer whether this is around Athens, Central and northern Greece, the Cyclades or the Ionian Islands, the Peloponnese and Crete. We like to dig deeper and explore the hidden treasures of each place even if it is a popular destination.
I have always been trying to combine my travels with certain activities that will allow me to experience the destination from a unique perspective. I found this so much rewarding since it allows me to connect easier and truly with local people. My favorite activities are walking, hiking, sailing, biking, sea-kayak, stand up paddle board (SUP), surfing, Yoga, ski/Snowboard and practically everything which extends the dimensions of the journey. In addition, I am very fond of history and culture, which is a prerequisite for a holistic experience."
How did you get involved in travel?
"Starting at the age of 18, I had the chance to work for several summer seasons at a small hotel business which belonged to my uncle. I was involved practically in everything, from being a receptionist and concierge to negotiating collaborations with travel agencies. I also had the chance to be in charge of several day tours around the coastal area the hotel was located. This experience, interacting with people and sharing my local knowledge, was the turning point that made me realise that this is what I would like to do for a leaving. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"It was in 2008 when I joined a group of 10 friends to Morocco surfing. We met a local surfer who we became friends with after the second day. Since it was Easter time in Greece, we came up with the idea of having a big BBQ at his place, a tiny house in the middle of nowhere. Some of us went to the woods to gather wood for the fireplace and others went to a big open market to buy the ingredients. We ended up spending the night at his place telling stories about us and our countries and gazing the stars of the clear Moroccan skies..."

Best for those interested in seeing Greece by boat, this sailing adventure combines bustling and ancient Athens with some of the country's most beautiful islands: the Cyclades.

Trip to Greece · Greece - Sep 22 - Oct 1, 2019
Spent five days on a six cabin sailing vessel, traveling to the islands south of Athens. Seros, Serifos, Kythnos, Kos. Eight other tourists, plus the captain Alex, and we all got along very well. Aside from sailing, we swam in the coves, hiked the islands, and had dinner on the beach restaurants at night. Then, 3 days in Athens at a very nice apartment rental in the city, seeing the Acropolis, visiting the museums, and spending time reading in the local cafes. The local people spoke English... read more

We were very pleased with the service provided by Dimitris. He answered all of our questions and made sure that all aspects of our trip ran smoothly. When we were concerned that weather conditions might lead to a cancellation of our ferry he was behind the scenes looking into that for us. He also listened to the specifics of what we were looking for and adjusted our itinerary accordingly. Overall we were very pleased with our trip and we enjoyed working with him.
Excellent trip · Greece - Sep 7 - Sep 16, 2019
Dimitris was excellent. Despite the fact that we had some misunderstandings, he responded quickly and fully. We did not have the same options as given by the Croatia/Venice leg, but then this is a different company.
We are grateful Dimitris put us in Kamari instead of Fira. Less crowded. Also his suggestion to dine at Strofi was super.
Tassos the driver was just what we needed. Calm and pleasant.
The highlight for both of us was definitely Meteora, both our accommodation and the... read more

Dimitris was such an excellent resource. I had many questions and emailed him A LOT. Every time I asked about my trip, Dimitris he always got back to me immediately with a reply. He was so helpful before and during our trip. We were 100% satisfied with his service.
When we arrived in Athens, our itinerary was a little tough at first. Since we arrived on a red-eye flight only sleeping a few hours, the morning/afternoon tour of the Acropolis grounds and museum was a little long for us,... read more
Trip was nice · Greece - Aug 6 - Aug 13, 2019
Trip was nice. Hotels were fantastic for the short notice we had booking this trip. Dimitris did a good job here. We specifically asked for booking of all transport in Greece. To and from ports and airports. Dimitris had this lined up for us in the beginning of the trip, but not toward the end. Attention to detail when booking trips is important. If a client asks for all transport within Greece to be arranged, please communicate clearly as to whether or not this is done. There was some confusion in regards to this.

We had the most exceptional experience with kimkim. Upon entering the details of our desired travels, we were immediately connected with an agent, Dimtiris, who assisted us in planning the trip of a lifetime.
Dimitris was everything we could have looked for in a travel agent. Following the parameters we laid out for him, he provided us with the absolute best options for our travels. He was both honest and patient with us, and made sure we took as much time as we needed to finalize a trip... read more

Our Greece vacation was everything we had hoped it would be. Beautiful locations and great food. Our guide dimitris for acropolis was extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure. Naxos sailing was wonderful. And our guide for kayaking was both safety conscious and very comical in his approach. Maria was an excellent hiking tour guide on santorini where she took us to a fabulous sunset view and also surprised us with food and drink for the magic moment. Dimitris and Kimkim was very responsive... read more

Dimitris did an excellent job of combining my ideas with his knowledge of Greece. This was my
third time to Greece so there were areas I wanted to revisit and of course have new experiences. Dimitris incorporated some exciting adventures into our vacation. Meteora, Olympia & Monemvasia are a must see. To relax after two weeks of our cross country drive we relaxed at his suggestion in a wonderful Villa on Naxos. Dimitris was patient and always available for questions and quickly resolved... read more

Overall Dimitris did a great job in helping us plan our family Greece trip. With so many amazing sites to see and islands to visit, it can be overwhelming knowing what would be good for our family and Dimitris took care of everything. We communicated through the trip and he quickly answered any/all questions that I had. We even met him in Athens and he handed us our ferry tickets and helped us buy an extra ticket that we needed when one of my kids joined us at the last minute.

Adventure Food Relax · Greece - May 23 - Jun 10, 2019
Overall our trip to Greece was wonderful! Dimitris was very responsive during our planning phase and while we were there. He put together a good itinerary that included accommodations, travel to/from islands, tours based on what we like, car rental and a driver to pick us up during our travels. (The driver, Stavos made our trip particularly enjoyable as he drove us to various sites as part of our journey. He was very knowledgeable and so kind.) Dimitris recommended a smaller less inhabited... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - May 29 - Jun 6, 2019
Our trip to Greece exceeded my expectations. From the first interactions with kimkim I was very pleased as I was having difficulty finding a good balance between relaxation, luxury and adventure from one source. The initial survey made me feel I finally found a source that understood that there was more than a single goal in vacation planning. With limited time available, Dimitris with Personality Journeys was able to fit all three goals into a 9-day tip with a one-month lead time. With... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - May 11 - May 24, 2019
We had an Amazing Trip. Dimitris did a great job with our itinerary and when we made some last minute changes he had great advice and helped us switch around our reservations. The Boat Charter was Amazing. The only negative would be the Hotel room for the first few nights in Athens. the room had 3 very small single beds. but at the end of the trip we stayed at the same hotel and got a better room with a real bed. The Rest of the Hotels were amazing and Greece is beautiful.
10th anniversary honeymoon · Greece - May 22 - May 30, 2019
This was our first overseas trip ever and it turned out amazing! Dimitris planned our trip out within our budget and the lodging was fantastic. Our favorite hotel was the Corfos Bay Hotel in Mykonos for its genuine beauty and true Island architecture. All of our ferry transportation was booked for us and spot on. The private transfer on our second day via Mr. Stavros was perfect, he even took the time to show us around Athens as we had extra time before the ferry departed. Dimitris... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - Apr 8 - Apr 14, 2019
We only had a few days available in Greece at the end of a four and a half month trip around the world and we wanted them to be special but fairly restful and Dimitris made the perfect plan for us. We were picked up at the airport by Stavros, who had bottled water, candies and a tour map ready for us. He was part taxi driver and part tour guide, telling us about the city as he drove us to our airbnb. We then had a few days to explore the city on our own. Dimitris would have arranged tours for... read more
