Rebecca Skevaki

Hi! My name is Rebecca Skevaki a Greek/Australian, travel and food and wine passionate. I got the travel bug at my first taste of traveling at just the age of 4 when my family sailed from Greece on a 42-day voyage to Australia. From then I have visited 46 countries and more than 240 cities. For me, "To travel is to live,” as said by Hans Christian Andersen.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in the most beautiful country, Greece! Every traveler wants not only to learn about the culture and history but also to experience the delights of the local food, comfortable transportations, and other amenities to ensure a completely stress-free holiday and that's what we guarantee!
We love suggesting to all our travelers' unique experiences, going off the beaten path and interacting with locals through tours and activities where they use all of their senses. It doesn't mean forsaking seeing the highlights of the destination but doing it in a more "authentic" and responsible way."

How did you get involved in travel?

"My passion became my profession and after working for years in the public relations field and marketing, I founded Go Local Tours a company that ran tours in Australia before moving permanently to Greece my "Homeland" and creating GrecianLux, a company that helps travelers experience Greece like never before. For me, traveling isn't only admiring the views. To comprehend a destination, travelers have to forge deeper connections with the people, traditions, and customs of the place they visit and seek travel experiences that resonate on a deep emotional level."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One of my unforgettable experiences was while on a customized trip for an extended family where the father was visually impaired. I will never forget the tears in his eyes when he managed to understand how life used to be in Ancient Greece by incorporating a range of activities that stimulated each of the senses. "

With 15 days in Greece, you can easily see many of the country's highlights or base yourself in one region for more in-depth cultural, historical, and culinary experiences. Whether you choose to explore the wonders of mainland Greece on a road trip, relax in the beautiful Cyclades Islands, or get active around Meteora, the Zagori villages, and the lovely isle of Corfu, these five itineraries showcase some of the best that Greece has to offer.

Santorini at sunset
Gourmet Experience & Outdoor Adventure in Athens, Crete & Santorini - 12 Days

Offering the perfect balance of outdoor activities and gourmet pursuits that provide insight into Greece's history and culture, the pleasures of Athens, Crete, and Santorini await. Begin in Athens and discover the city, kayak around Cape Sounio at sunset, and hike in Parnassos National Park. Then it's off to Crete to sample local cuisine and relax on the famous pink sand beach of Elafonissi before ending the adventure with several days on Santorini.

Dinner for two on Santorini
Wine, Sun, and Romance in Athens & the Greek Islands - 13 Days

Experience the best of Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini on this romantic 13-day luxury voyage. You'll explore the ancient ruins of the Acropolis and sample local delicacies before being whisked away to drink red wines around Nemea and sail along the picturesque coastline of Nafplio. Then it's off to discover the beautiful beaches of Greece's islands, cruise turquoise waters on a catamaran, and cap the experience with a professional photographer documenting your sunkissed excursion around Santorini's most scenic locales.

Whitewashed houses on Santorini
Discover Corfu, Athens, Mykonos & Santorini - 15 Days

Idyllic islands, ancient history, boating adventures, gourmet food and wine — this sweeping 15-day tour around Greece has it all! You'll start with several days exploring the beautiful island of Corfu before heading to the mainland, where you'll discover Athens on thematic tours dedicated to street food and Greek mythology. Continue to Mykonos for sailing tours around nearby islands, a visit to a traditional farm, and time to relax on the beach. The grand finale of the itinerary is a four-day stretch on Santorini, known for its dramatic volcano and world-famous sunsets. You'll see the sun go down over the sea on an afternoon sailing trip on the last day of the journey.

Colorful beachfront houses in Mykonos
Adventure & Relaxation in Athens, Mykonos, Paros & Santorini - 10 Days

From the bustling capital of Athens to quiet villages on idyllic islands, this 10-day tour takes you to some of Greece's most appealing destinations. After sightseeing in the big city at the start of the trip, you'll sail to the island of Mykonos, where you'll tour the charming 18th-century neighborhood of Little Venice and relax on the beach. Then it's off to the lesser-visited island of Paros, a picturesque place to explore in your own rental car. Wrap up the trip on the famous island of Santorini, where you'll visit a local winery, shop for handicrafts in traditional villages, sunbathe on the Red Beach, and catch glorious sunsets over the sea.

Colorful scenery on the Red Beach, Santorini
Explore Athens & Island-Hop Around Mykonos, Santorini & Crete - 14 Days

This exciting two-week itinerary through Greece has something for everyone: ancient history, cultural experiences, outdoor adventure, world-class beaches, and gourmet food and drink. Spend the first few days sightseeing in Athens, learning about Greek antiquity at the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. Then you'll head to Mykonos for relaxing beach time and a half-day cruise around nearby islands. Catch the ferry to Santorini next, exploring traditional villages and sampling locally crafted spirits — and soaking up views of truly spectacular sunsets, of course. Wrap up the trip on Crete, where you'll tour the Cave of Zeus and marvel at dramatic scenery on the drive to the legendary Elafonissi Beach, famed for its pink sands and clear blue waters.

Our Grecian vacation exceeded every expectation! Rebecca's attention to detail, respect for our individual needs, and depth of planning, allowed us to travel with confidence and peace of mind. The hotel accommodations were not only conveniently located to our specific city itineraries, but also more luxurious than we would have chosen for ourselves. Having a breakfast available each day was a delight and the food choices at each hotel were culinary experiences of their own. We found the hotel staff members to be friendly and engaging and one employee in particular guided us to an unplanned excursion that was most enjoyable.
Another extraordinary benefit was the opportunity to explore each city, including Thessaloniki, Athens, and Santorini, with guides who ranged from an art historian, archeologist, and outdoor adventurer! Seeing the ancient historical sites from their perspective and depth of knowledge was informative, entertaining, and broadened our intellects. Each one warmly greeted us and by day's end, felt we had made a new friend.
We have found KimKim to be our "go to" travel agency and highly recommend them because they listen and respond with respect and flexibility to ensure we have a personal and memorable experience.

First of all I need to start by saying this whole trip exceeded our expectations. Rebecca was always there to help with questions or concerns and always came through with a solution. There were absolutely no hiccups in this trip plan on Rebecca’s side.
We had some unexpected weather and some of the plans had to be tweaked .
From the first Pickup when we landed to the hotel transfers to the tour transfers, they all were timely and efficient it was pretty amazing.
There was even a welcoming lady Katerina who brought us a special gift and took us to answer any questions we might have.
All the tour specialists were amazing!!
Theodore in Athens was so kind and welcoming, happy and knowledgeable, we had good food drinks and fun. Off to Crete.
George at Knossos was very good at explaining all the information at the archeological site on a level we could understand . Our driver for the day Yiannis was more than just a driver we stopped for coffee and snacks there was never any pressure. He explained a lot about the Island while he drove.
Wine tasting with Eva was so fun. This girl was a breath of fresh air!! We really connected with her and had a blast.
Yiannis took us on a road trip to the mountains and to a little village to taste some amazing food from the region. We really appreciated how slow he drove and would stop to show us things it was very relaxing. Again very kind and down to earth young man.
Antonis had to tweak our original tour due to weather and we just loved how flexible he was ! We LOVED the walk in old town and everywhere he took us, the food and drinks, the conversations. He was just a gem! The whole experience was so relaxing. He was a super nice young man with a great smile! He also acted like a photographer, he got some amazing shots of us. Great day!
In Santorini Lazarus had to also tweak our original tour but it was very nice. He took us to Oia and told us all about the island and took the most amazing photos of us at all the great spots. We would have never on our own taken these photos. When he took us for our lunch he ordered ahead then explained all the wonderful food we were going to enjoy, and I loved how he gave us some time alone to rest and enjoy our food. When on our wine tasting with a magnificent view he again stayed close by but let us enjoy some alone time. Again a very kind and super knowledgeable young man, enjoyed his company.
On Mykonos we got a little walking tour of little Venice and the town with Christos, it was very relaxing kick back tour.
Back in Athens we got to tour the Acropolis with an actual Archeologist Nicholas who worked the site for 3 years. He was SO knowledgeable. We loved how he took care not to run us ragged lol !! There was a lot of climbing, we took It slow and easy it was really appreciated. He went even further and took us to the tomb of the unknown soldier and the Plaka, even suggested a great place to have dinner.
All in all every single one of the tour guides gave us their numbers and offered any help in the future if we needed.
For us, each of the places we visited had great things. Crete with the millions of Olive trees and mountains and the beauty of the old port town .
Santorini the breathtaking views of the Caldera were unlike anything. The only drawback there were the steps up and down everywhere could be bad for some people.
Mykonos tho was our favorite. We loved not being so high up and with close walking distance to the sea and the town.
The hotels that were chosen were so nice and located perfectly!
I would say do not hesitate to book a trip through Rebecca at Grecian Lux you will not regret it!!

It’s a climb (lots of stairs) to some of the rooms. Access to the port for ferries into town or for Fast Ferries to other islands is wonderful; however, it is hard to get anywhere otherwise. During the busy season, no taxis can be found, buses are packed, and walking alongside the highway is (very) sketchy.

We had the most amazing trip in Greece! Rebecca Skevakis was our travel specialist and she could not have set up a more seamless or thoughtful trip for us. We are a family of four, two teenage kids (daughter 16 and son 14) from Boulder, Colorado. We have traveled a lot and typically arrange our own itinerary. For Greece, since we only had ten days and I wanted to make the most of our time there, I used KimKim and Rebecca to assist with all the details. As the title of the review said....perfection start to finish.

We spent two nights in Athens to start the trip. We had a free day to get acclimated to the time change and explore a bit on our own. The hotel, Coco Mat Athens, was fantastically located near the Acropolis with views. Walkable to everything we wanted to see. We had a tour of the Acropolis with our tour guide, Angela, who was so knowledgeable and took us to some areas of the Plaka that we would never have seen. We then transferred by plane to Chania, Crete. Another fantastic hotel, Chania Flair Boutique. Again, perfect location with beach access in the City. We went to Balos Beach, did an olive oil farm and press and cooking class. Had dinner at the most beautiful farm to table restaurant, and had time to explore the harbor district and spend some good quality time just relaxing at the beach. After three days on Chania, we went to Santorini and stayed just outside of Fira. We had the most unbelievable view of the caldera and the quintessential view of the white cliffside accomodations in Santorini. We were able to go cliff jumping in Atouni Bay, spent at day at a beach club at Theros Beach and did a sunset catamaran cruise of the island. All beyond perfect. We did one final transfer back to Athens but instead of it being a night of just wandering, we scheduled a food and wine tour of the Psyri neighborhood, and our guide, Theo, took us to places we would never have found on our own. Theo was fantastic and given that we had a 100 degree day, tailored our time to accommodate the oppressive heat.

Overall, I can't rave enough about Rebecca, GrecianLux, KimKim. Her attention to detail, from really listening to what my family wanted out of the trip, to the accommodations that she arranged, to the tours, to the transfers each step of the trip....every detail went off without a hitch. For example, we had one day when we were to take a boat tour to a beach but the wind was up and the harbor shut down, so she arranged for alternate transportation (her husband, Michael drove us! Michael was also amazing and so knowledgeable!) We could still go to the beach and then added on a dinner at the best restaurant. She also arranged for transportation and a reservation at a beach club in Santorini on a day when my kids rejected a six mile hike (walking uphill, even with views, was not appealing to teenagers !). The app that we used was also incredibly user friendly. It had all of our trip information organized by day and also important documents. We had the opportunity to meet Rebecca and she and her family were just so warm and welcoming in person.

If you are planning a trip to Greece, I am happy to provide the highest recommendation for Rebecca and KimKim. Perfect trip with memories that will last a lifetime.

We toured an olive oil refinery and farm, and then took a cooking class at a private farm in the Kissamos district. So beautiful and away from tourists. We cooked stuffed tomatoes and peppers and stuffed grape leaves. And we were served a traditional Cretan meal with different types of cheeses, honey, Greek salad, roasted vegetables, roasted goat, and dessert of yogurt and different types of local honey. One of the best experiences of our trip. We highly recommend.

Chania - Dive into magnificent Balos Beach with a private boat (Fishing boat)
Greece

We didn't actually get to take a boat to Balos Beach because the ocean was too high and the Harbor Master closed the marina. However, our travel specialist Rebecca arranged for a driver to take us to and from the same beach which was so thoughtful. The wind was high that day but that kept the crowds down and we were able to be comfortable behind some of the big rocks on the beach. We then were able to go for dinner at a local farm to table restaurant near Balos. Again, Rebecca took care of the cost of the meal because we had paid for dinner on the boat trip that got cancelled. Really, she went over and above and we had the best alternate experience!

So happy we found Rebecca via KimKim. Every single detail was perfect and the hotels and excursions she picked out for our family of 5 were perfect!

Traveling with 5 is hard since hotels usually are geared for 4. But Rebecca not only found hotel rooms that fit us but spectacular rooms that fit us comfortably! This trip called for transportation to and from airport/ports, ferry tickets, private tour guides, group tours and 1,000 other details and Rebecca handled it all perfectly. She exceeded our expectations. Amazing bucket list trip that was successful because of Rebecca. She knew places to go/stay that American travel agents wouldn’t know about because she is Greek. I cannot say enough good things about her!!!

Most memorable places: our room (Santorini Mansion) in Santorini with the beautiful view of the Caldera, private walking tour of the Acropolis and Naxos beaches!

When the tour got cancelled I was ready to postpone it to another year until I came across The Kimkim Team. I sent an inquiry then a representative called to get more information of my interest so they can connect me with a local agent. Everything was seamless and fast and easy.
I was connected to Rebecca just in time when the plane fare from Canada was on sale. Asked Rebecca to work with my dates with the wishlists that I gave. Impressively Rebecca came back within 48 hours with a very detailed itinerary with suggestions for activities that can be customized to my liking. That was mid March 2022 and I left for Greece on May 6, 2022. All were perfectly executed!
I just came back from Greece a week ago and it was everything I could hope for. As a first time solo traveller I was not scared. First I have Rebecca to support me whenever I have questions or doubts in my trips and there were many calls and she was always there even to the last activity where I was supposed to do a hike but due to blisters I got from another hike - Rebecca was able to find a solution so I can still see Balos beach without hiking. The team she had organized for me were all professionals and each one of them has exceeded my expectations even when I request something like take me to restaurants where the locals go.
Thank you Kimkim team and Rebecca for my unforgettable bucketlist solo trip.

I’m usually a self planner, but this 60th birthday celebration to my birthplace was too important. I wanted help from a local and chose the very best. Rebecca took my wish list and created an itinerary with experiences that could not be topped! It was truly the trip of a lifetime. She took care of all the details- airport transfers, car rental, tickets, tours, restaurant recommendations and even Covid testing. Our hotels in Athens, Nafplio and Santorini were ideal. Each had beautiful views, excellent service and just the right distance from main tourist areas so we could enjoy quaint neighborhoods and walks.
Each driver, our greeter Theo and our fabulous tour guides were all professional and enjoyable to be with, enriching our experiences beyond measure. Our tour days were among our favorite days, including Athens Mythology tour and custom planned birthday with Babis, incredible Acropolis at sunset with Nikos, the best of Santorini with Lazarus and Anna (Akrotiri). Their historical knowledge, storytelling and love of Greece was infectious and will remain among our best memories always.

Rebecca did a great job of finding unique experiences for us. The guides throughout were very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating. Our favorite memory was the trip to Meteora. The weather there was not very nice (cold, rainy and windy) but that added to the "other worldly" aspect of viewing the monasteries. We also loved Santorini in all of it's natual beauty.

Whether it was hiking a gorge with breathtaking views, swimming in crystal clear turquoise waters, or sampling delicious local dishes, Rebecca and her team (especially Giannis) ensured we were experiencing the beauty of Greece each day of our trip. We made the decision to travel somewhat spur of the moment due to Covid travel restrictions, so having Rebecca arrange all of the logistics (accommodations, transfers, ferry tickets, covid testing, etc.) was convenient and a huge time saver. For us, this was worth every penny as it allowed us to truly enjoy every second of our vacation. We were also provided a wealth of information about each location which allowed us the freedom to explore each place at our own pace and time frame. As first time users of KimKim, we had a wonderful experience and would definitely use this service again in the future. Additionally, we highly recommend Rebecca and her team of drivers/guides to make your trip to Greece one you’ll never forget.

We were then put in contact with Rebecca who did a great job in tailoring an itinerary to our specific needs and interests. While more expensive than my original DIY plans, we feel that we received excellent value for that extra money. We are extremely happy that we made the choice to go with Rebecca and Kimkim.

Mike, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an awesome review! It was a great pleasure tailoring and running this Greece trip for you, and meeting you personally during our tour in Santorini.
Nothing gives us more satisfaction than seeing happy guests! Safe travels and hope to be able to show you more of our country next time! :-)
Wish you both all the very best.
Best Regards from Greece
Rebecca and Grecian Lux team
