When it comes to travel planning.. my heart beats always a bit faster. Someone will find me surrounded by maps, spinning a globe, and planning the next excursion for my clients, beloved ones, or even European projects for multinational groups. Born and raised in Greece, I remember when I was a child we used to ride in the car with my family with the sole purpose to discover the hidden gems of Greece. Such a wide variety of landscapes, flavors, aromas… from stunning beaches with crystal blue waters to imposing gorges with dense vegetation and from mythical, ancient palaces to picturesque, vivid villages. Since then, I keep traveling throughout Greece to expand my knowledge.
I feel more than grateful for having the opportunity to turn my passion into my career. For the last 7 years, I’ve been dedicated to making more travelers discover the kaleidoscopic beauty of Greece, crafting bespoke trip plans that reflect nothing less than their true travel desires.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"We specialize in designing tailor-made trip plans in places all over Greece. Our itineraries are holistic (including accommodation, private transfers, fare tickets, guided tours, escorted experiences etc.), for every traveler (i.e. couples, groups, families, solo travelers), incorporating every travel style (art, history, gastronomy, leisure, nature, adventure)."
How did you get involved in travel?
"Traveling is without doubt about discovering different places and cultures. Another perspective with which I love to perceive traveling is that it gives you the opportunity to take a step back and observe how it affects your personality, shapes your reactions, and empowers your citizen id. And this is how I decided to take my MSc degree in Travel & Tourism Management. My studies inflamed my wanderlust and lead me to Prague. Living and working at the center of Europe was my launchpad for discovering multiculturalism. Now, I relocated back to Greece and enjoy assisting travelers to experience Greece in an authentic way, away from stereotypes and tourist traps... just like Greeks do."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I am recalling a few years ago when I took part in a European project in Slovakia, representing Greece. We lived with all participants for a week in the middle of the Slovakian province, surrounded by the scents and colors of nature. One night we decided to light a fire, have bbq and prepare a dinner where everyone would prepare something traditional from his country. I made a big bowl of typical Cretan salad and tzatziki. Our table ended up being huge, and full of delicious delicacies. I had the opportunity to taste flavors from around the world, dance and sing by the fire and travel imaginatively in beautiful places during the various storytellings.
What a travel around the world .. just in one night, just in Slovakia."

Amazing family trip to Greece
Jun 12 - Jun 26, 2022
We are a family of 4 and just completed a phenomenal trip to Greece. Eleni was our local specialist and she was awesome. The trip was a great mix of historical sites, beach/water activities, food, wine, culture and people. All trips, transfers and activities were perfectly arranged and we just needed to show up with a smile. I'd recommend a trip to Greece arranged by Eleni for everyone - we visited Athens and 3 islands and the logistics can be complicated without a local expert.

Two perfect weeks in Greece

We went through several versions, until we came up with the perfect trip for my husband and I.
