Traveling is a #never-ending_experience! I come from the cultural hub of Athens with its UNESCO sacred rock of Acropolis and breathtaking Santorini with its spectacular Caldera views.
What I love in Athens is that everyone can walk around the pedestrian streets and visit a variety of cafes and restaurants. Athens is a city which never sleeps. Santorini has a majestic view with a wild beauty and you can taste unique local wine.
Traveling is not only the movement between distant locations but it's much more, an opportunity to learn different cultures, select memories and cross over new horizons. Also traveling is an escape from the daily routine and a chance to appreciate your life because exploring another place will give you a fresh appreciation for your hometown country and real life!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"The places I specialize in are: Athens, Santorini, Corfu and Peloponnese.
As per activities, I specialize in food and gastronomy, guided tours , wine tasting and hiking."
How did you get involved in travel?
"Spending a lot of summers in Santorini, I met people who really love traveling and especially in my country. When I started traveling around Greece I realized how beautiful my country is and how many different places you can visit. After all my traveling experiences I realize that I would like to share my experience with people from all over the world. When they started asking me what places they can visit and how they can combine destinations I realize that this is what I like to do! I love when I help people to organise their traveling preferences and adjust them accordingly to their needs!"
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I will never forget when I visit my best friend in Naxos! The locals were really friendly, we ate the famous potatoes of Naxos, the spicy Arseniko cheese and we had Kitron which is their local drink. The beaches were spectacular and the paths majestic. I am in love with this island!"
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.
Whether you're windsurfing, hiking, or sea kayaking, this nine-day itinerary will take you to some of the highlights of Athens and the islands. Start off high atop the Acropolis, then set sail for bustling Naxos, one of the largest islands in the Cyclades, where you can take advantage of one of the best windsurfing spots in the region. Then head to Santorini to sea kayak and hike around the island's famed caldera.
Spend ten days amid some of the most popular spots in Greece. You'll start off in Athens, where you'll experience the Acropolis and the shores of the Athenian Riviera. Then sail into the Cyclades, landing first at Naxos for a hike through the island's history, then continuing to Santorini to explore its beaches and enjoy the caldera views.
Though Greece has more than 1,000 islands to its name, the Cyclades are some of the best-known and most popular of the set. Encircling the former sacred site at Delos in the Aegean Sea, this island chain boasts picture-perfect beaches, lots of local culture, and historical sites dating back to the Classical era. From big names like Santorini and Mykonos to tiny isles with far fewer visitors, this guide will get you started.
Spend six days seeing the sights of Athens and Thessaloniki with this exciting itinerary. Begin in the capital, where you'll be welcomed with a local wine tasting, followed by a jaunt around the Acropolis. You'll tour the city's young, vibrant neighborhoods and markets, and learn to cook a traditional meal as you look out at the Athenian skyline. Then fly north to Greece's second city, where you can appreciate its fascinating architecture on a walking tour of all the hot spots.
If you're looking out for a place to go, dance your way through this five-day Greek itinerary featuring the island filming location of Mamma Mia. After landing in Athens, head down to the slopes of Mount Pelion and then out to Skopelos island where Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried worked on the 2008 film before you return to Athens.
Recent trip reviews for Harris
Our Spartan adventure · Greece - Oct 31 - Nov 14, 2019
I don't know where to start , but wow! Harris knocked it out of the park. We have done trips with zero planning, and done trips where we tried to book all the things ourselves but this trip was nearly perfect. Harris and his group in Greece know what they are doing. They matched us with the right tour guides and hotels, planned transfers and connections perfectly. Our tour in Delphi with Penny was so informative, her ability to weave all the layers of information together was exceptional. ... read more

Normally I handle all of the details for my trips. This time, however, I wanted to join friends who were already using Kimkim. WOW! I could not be happier!
Harris impressed me over and over from transportation and hotel choices to tours and guides. It quickly became obvious he knew what he was doing. In fact, you could tell Harris had hand-picked every part of the experience based on what we were interested in doing.
Our first hotel experience in Mystras was spectacular and fit... read more
Did some things well but some little things were not done so well · Greece - Oct 18 - Oct 30, 2019
Did some things well but some little things weren't quite so good. To be fair this was part of a big trip and didn't pay enough attention til at the time so maybe should have picked up some things earlier. Hotels chosen were great and any activities arranged were well done. Responses were always very quick but all by email, no personal touch but that may be an age thing. I did have to ring them once as had left some jewellery behind on one of the islands but otherwise would have had no voice... read more
Greek Adventure! · Greece - Sep 26 - Oct 5, 2019
Every aspect of this trip was amazing, being picked up after every plane, ferry etc was awesome! Every person we interacted with was great and super accommodating. I even forgot some clothing in Mykonos and the ladies at Portes Mykonos sent it to the hotel in Athens so I could get it when we got back there. It was great being able to use the Greek SIM card in my phone it helped out tremendously. Overall it was a great experience and I would do it again in a minute!!
Ten wonderful days in Greece! · Greece - Sep 4 - Sep 13, 2019
This is the first time I’ve booked a trip with KimKim and it wont be the last. The trip planning was so easy and having KimKim plan all the details took the stress away. Harris helped me decide on the islands we would visit and was readily available whenever I had a question. Our trip was ten days and we visited Athens, Santorini, Naxos, Paros.
I really can’t say enough good things about the Aegean Gem hotel in Kamari, Santorini. It’s such a wonderful hotel - great owner, new hotel close to... read more
Great Trip To Greece! · Greece - Aug 21 - Sep 6, 2019
It was an incredible trip and Harris & KimKim made it so easy to enjoy our vacation. We ran into a few small problems during our trip and they were always quick to respond and find a solution that would work for both us and the people we were meeting. I absolutely intend to book my next trip through them as well once I decide where I’m going!

KimKim Travel was amazing from beginning to end. If you want to take a major trip around the world somewhere and really experience the culture and adventure that country has to offer, this is the agency to make it happen. I truly had an amazing birthday vacation in Greece, and utilizing this company for this celebration gets 5 stars all the way. Harris was very helpful and attentive through the whole process as well as the local contacts in Greece. Would I ever use this company again -... read more
Carefree travel with kimkim · Greece - Oct 9 - Oct 18, 2019
Although we are a retired couple, we recently decided that we needed to get away so that we could relax. We decided that we should go to Greece, which has been on our bucket list for a long time but we had never managed to travel there. Generally, when we travel one of us does all the planning and booking with the stress and nervousness that can cause. Because we decided on rather short notice to travel to Greece, we decided to let kimkim take the stress out of the planning and book our... read more

I had a wonderful experience booking my trip to Greece with kimkim. Harris was extremely informative and helpful along the way. He answered any and all questions we had. Based on our interests and budget, Harris designed an itinerary that was perfect for me and my 3 single girl friends. The itinerary was so well organized, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Every driver that picked us up from the airports, hotels, and ferries was on time and courteous. The tour guides on our excursions... read more
Greek Islands · Greece - Sep 20 - Sep 30, 2019
My wife and I had a wonderful time touring four Greek Islands. Kim Kim was extremely helpful in arranging all the ferry/boat transportation and local transfers. This made the journey very easy. This was one error on a ferry ticket time and date; as soon as I contacted the local representative, it was immediately corrected. Overall, we were very happy with the hotels that were selected for us; they all had central locations and they had amazing views.
Relaxed Athens, Santorini, Naxos & Mykonos - 8 Days · Greece - Sep 8 - Sep 15, 2019
Fantastic walking food tour on Naxos
Great hotel in Santorini, 5 min walk to the black sand beaches
Informative walking tour in Athens
Kimkim hooked us up with a great personal driver in Athens!
First hotel in Athens was just ok, but it had a great view
Probably should have flown to Santorini rather than take a 5 hour ferry. With getting there early to avoid rush hour, it ends up being a 7 hour trip with a 5am wakeup. Worth the extra $
Exceptional Service: When all... read more
How kimkim Trips Work in Greece · Greece - Sep 15 - Sep 24, 2019
I discovered Kimkim online and got in contact for a little bit of advice to start with and was so impressed with Harris, our Kimkim contact, that we ended up booking our trip through him. His advice really helped me shape the itinerary, and he had lots of great suggestions for hotels, day trips and more.
We decided to book our hotels directly, but used Kimkim to arrange all our transportation between the islands of Mykonos, Naxos and Santorini, transfers to hotels and a few excursions.... read more
Focus on Athens with some Greek isles · Greece - Sep 8 - Sep 18, 2019
We absolutely loved our time in Greece. The hotels were great. We especially loved Hotel Adriani in Naxos and would recommend that place to anyone! Please continue to suggest this hotel to others. The staff there really made us feel welcome and a part of their family. We also really enjoyed our welcome dinner at Mavro Provato in Athens!
The pre-arranged driving and ferry services were extremely convenient. Being able to access our local contact when we had ferry delays was invaluable -... read more

Harris did a fantastic job setting up our whole trip. Everything went very smooth. The excursions he choose where outstanding.

I will definitely use this company for all my trips!! Thank you so much!
Crete & Santorini - 9 Days · Greece - Sep 2 - Sep 10, 2019
Harris, our specialist through Travel 12, was outstanding and very helpful at every point in planning our trip and answering every tedious question.
We started the trip in Athens at the PiAthens Hotel, which was alright. We knew we weren't getting the best hotel because we had previously asked our representative to book a medium-level hotel to cut costs. The hotel was still decent and clean, and the location was stellar. We were easily able to walk to the Acropolis. We had a "welcome... read more
Greece, sights, sounds , food , wine and experiences · Greece - Aug 28 - Sep 6, 2019
Our group of 4 arrived in Athens on Aug. 28th. Our driver was there to transport us to our hotel, the Pi Athens Suite. The hotel was nice, although it’s location (1/2 block from major road) made road noise a bit of an issue. The staff was friendly and they served a made-to-order omelet with your breakfast. Our welcome dinner at Mauro Parvato was delicious. There was confusion as to whether the cost of this dinner was part of our package, or on our own, but this was readily resolved. It... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - Jul 22 - Aug 2, 2019
My wife and I used kimkim to plan our honeymoon to Greece. This being our honeymoon and the fact we were traveling internationally, I wanted the trip to be as stress free and seamless as possible. Whether it was helping us pick which Greek islands would be best for the type of vacation we were looking for, to booking private transfers from each port to make getting around as easy as possible, Harris helped us plan a trip we will never forgot. I was very impressed with the service that we... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - Aug 9 - Aug 17, 2019
We are so happy we chose travel 12 to plan out first trip to Greece. Harris and the team were so accommodating and flexible, as we booked last minute. They listened to what we wanted and planned an amazing tour for us!
Athens was an incredible however short visit. From the moment Lambros met us off the plane we felt comfortable. Even with coming in late from flying standby and not catching the mythology tour our hotel was in a convenient location to walk the Acropolis and make... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - Aug 9 - Aug 17, 2019
Great guides. Would have been nice to have more I fo as what to wear on tours like proper foot wear recommended. Lots of walking hills, dirt paths, lava rocks. Bring old swimsuit for iron in water. Also on long tours nice to know where and when and what kind of time we have to grab food. Sophia was wealth of knowledge on our tour of Santorini.
A little disappointed we didn’t or could work out credit for missed hotel in Athens as Harris knew we were flying standby. Love the Greek dinner in... read more

Kim Kim and Harris were spectacular. The process of booking was smooth and Harris was very attentive to my needs and and wants for the trip. He had great suggestions and our trip was flawless.
I highly recommend using Kim Kim and especially Harris when planning a trip to Greece.
All the transfers went great and the hotels were amazing.
This is a 5 Star Team

What's the best thing about travel? The Travel itself?
What's the worst thing about travel? Planning the trip.
KimKim took care of every detail from providing us with the hotels in the range we were looking for to dinner reservation on a rooftop restaurant with a perfect view of the acropolis. Harris was in touch every step of the way, checked in regularly. When we hit a snag with one of the hotels he got involved to straighten things out. The transfers were reliable, the places were lovely... read more
Greek Dream Come True · Greece - Jul 1 - Jul 14, 2019
We had a fabulous trip in Greece thanks to all the coordination and expert guiding from the folks that kimkim ser up for us. Andreas was excellent for our all-day excursion to Delphi — very friendly and knowledgeable. The guide we had at the Delphi museum was also excellent.
The mythological tour with Vicky was very good—she has a background in archaeology and anthropology and was lively and funny. On such a hot day our younger travelers ran out of energy before we managed to see most of... read more
Greece 2019 · Greece - Jun 15 - Jun 26, 2019
We traveled to Greece early June 2019. Harris was our Kim Kim local specialist who helped us plan the trip. He was always responsive and helped us refine the trip down to each detail. He was in touch with us throughout the trip as well, providing tips and suggestions , making sure everything was going as planned and problem solving as needed. Our trip was in two parts. The first part was just two of us traveling in the Peloponnese Peninsula with a car rental. The boutique hotels we stayed... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - Jun 11 - Jun 22, 2019
It was a fantastic trip for our family. Greece was beautiful and the people we met were all so wonderful. All transfers were smooth except the ferries. The assigned seats on our tickets didn't work and we got bumped to a different ferry, which was confusing, but all in all we made it to Santorini and Crete. The guides, and I wish i could remember all of their names, were so all wonderful. Especially for our tour in Athens (Maria??), Delphi (Kristoff??), Akrotiri, Heraklion (George) and... read more
Active Athens & the Cyclades - 7 Days · Greece - Jun 15 - Jun 22, 2019
Our tour consisted of Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini. Harris and the rest of the Kimkim team was very responsive in answering our questions as we built our itinerary. The only thing we didn't really get any value out of was the visit to the farm, prior to the delicious home-cooked meal that the cooking class made. We also didn't agree that the caged rabbits should be picked up by their ears, which the tour guide assured us was okay. We also didn't like seeing that the eight rabbits were... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - May 20 - Jun 1, 2019
We had such a wonderful experience for our Greece trip. I would highly recommend using kimkim services to plan any vacation. Harris, our specialist, was absolutely amazing every step of the way. He skillfully planned an itinerary that was exactly what we were looking for. In our two week trip, we experienced city life, cliffs, beaches, mountains, beautiful waters and of course delicious food. We were able to visit Athens, Mykonos, Santorini and Crete and every single detail was taken... read more
Trip to Greece · Greece - May 17 - May 26, 2019
We really enjoyed the rock climbing in Napflio with Kostas and Nadine perhaps most of all. Sofia was great on the Santorini Oia, monastery and wine tasting tour. Really helped to make us feel at home. And Katherine was super knowledgable of ancient Greek history and mythology. Brought the museum and Acropolis to life for us.
Napflio and Naxos stand out as the more interactive and fun destinations with a wide variety of things to see and be more spontaneously involved in. Athens, with its... read more
Mainland Greece Adventure - 7 Days · Greece - May 16 - May 21, 2019
Harris did a great job coordinating all the crazy-busy days we asked for while in Greece! And an added bonus? We got to meet one of our coordinators, Angeliki, in person on one of our day tours, and it made our day that much more fun. What a great group of folks! I would call them up in a heartbeat to coordinate our next trip to Greece. Thanks, guys, for making our stay so memorable!
Trip to Greece · Greece - Apr 1 - Apr 9, 2019
I recently wrapped up an amazing trip to Greece that Kimkim out together for me. Harris and his team took care of every detail with precision and care. Travelling by myself, it was especially meaningful to feel so taken care of and looked after. The team checked in after each excursion to ensure my satisfaction, handled cancellations due to bad weather, and ensured that my trip went effortlessly. The hotels, the excursions, the transfers; all exceeded my expectations! I will definitely be using Kimkim again and will recommend them whole heartedly to any of my travelling friends. Thank you!
Simple and awesome! · Greece - Mar 30 - Apr 6, 2019
The ease of planning this trip through kimkim was one of the notable highlights of our honeymoon! Harris, our local specialist, suggested some great things for us to do that we wouldn't have been able to coordinate if we were planning the trip on our own, and he was very quick to accommodate any requests we had. Stepping off each plane or ferry to find someone with my name ready to take care of our transfers really eased a lot of the logistics of traveling. You always know that the sights... read more
Discover Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, and Crete - 16 Days · Greece - Mar 8 - Mar 15, 2019
Harris went above and beyond to meet our precise needs and budget. I was hugely disappointed when things went awry (through our mistake), but he went out of his way — quite literally by leaving work and coming to find us — to alter our agenda and surpass our expectations. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend Harris to friends and family.
Go see Greece and use Harris to plan your best trip.
Becker Trip to Greece · Greece - Nov 30 - Dec 6, 2018
We worked with Harris to develop a custom trip from Athens to the Peloponnese and back, by rental car. It worked out beautifully, allowing us to be flexible about arrival and departure times, and to work out meeting times and places with our tour guide, Ilias, on the fly. We were met by a driver, Lampros, at the Athens airport, and delivered to our hotel for the night. It was a short walk to pick up the rental car the next morning. Our local guide, Ilias, took us to four sites: Corinth,... read more
