Born in California with an Indian background, traveling is in my blood. I've visited over 50 countries, in every possible way. From travelling alone with a backpack to staying at luxurious 5 star getaways and everything in between. Greece finally has become
my beloved adopted home. My constant discovery of Greece and all it has to offer combined with my sharing nature was the driver to join the Curated Greece idea and share real and unique experiences of the country to all its visitors!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Greece is a diverse country, full of coastlines and mountains. We can put together anything from road trips in the mainland to sailing trips or island hopping tours through the islands.
Whether you want to relax at a beach or climb Mount Olympus, cook local recipes or dive into the history of the Acropolis, we have you covered to experience Greece the way you want!"

How did you get involved in travel?

"Having lived and worked abroad, I had the opportunity to travel far and wide since a very young age. I always found myself missing the "insider" touch for a more authentic and local experience. Although I started my career in international economics, I took the bold decision to leave my comfortable 9 to 5 and create a new travel experience along with my partner! Since moving to Greece, I've been exploring different parts of this vast and beautiful country, meeting new people, and living new experiences. This was the perfect background for me to start sharing my "insider" knowledge.
And here we are today with our dedicated team of travel enthusiasts still creating unforgettable journeys in Greece!""

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"So many to choose from! But since we're in Greece, let's take a journey to the island of Crete. I'm a huge sucker for sea travel so my partner and I decided to take the overnight ferry from Piraeus port to Heraklion, Crete. We went all out and got the sea view junior suite cabin too! That alone was such an old-school romantic experience. Upon arriving on Heraklion at about 6 am, we headed to a local cafe where they serve the best bougatsa (sweet cream pastry). As we ate the warm flaky pieces of phylo filled with this sweetness, we watched as late part-goers were returning home after what appeared to be a great night out. As the sun rose over the Venetian fortress and onto the old town, we left the cafe fully satisfied and started exploring more of the island."
