Yvonni Xenofontos

My main passion is finding out new and exciting things about the destinations in Greece so I can always give that extra tip or two to our guests, to make their trips even more unique and memorable.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"All destinations within Greece and focus on tailor made tours."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I fell in love with the concept of tourism and hospitality ever since my fist overseas journey as a college student."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Meteora, a rock formation in central Greece hosting one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries, It is located near the town of Kalambaka at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pineios river. The six monasteries are built on immense natural pillars and hill-like rounded boulders that dominate the local area. It is one of the most breathtaking trips I had until now and it is a destination I always recommend."
