Zeta Kourafa

Since I was a child I remember myself traveling. I come from a family that is passionate about exploring the world. Through our travels I had the chance to gain authentic experiences and collect moments, that made me who I am today. So it was only natural for me to continue travelling, because there is always something interesting waiting to be known!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in Athens, Peloponnese and Greek mainland. I have an expert knowledge for Crete and the Greek Islands.
We offer mostly History tours combined with local gastronomy and wines and unique experiences based on the travellers wishes."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started organising special trips for my friends and family and some local cultural groups. At some point I realised that most of the existing travel companies in Greece, did not provide tailor-made authentic experiential cultural tours, but where mostly focusing on mass tourism services. So I decided to create with my sisters a company that promotes the cultural aspects of our country and Greece as not only a “sea and sun” destination. I stared working to provide tailor-made tours for independent travellers, who want to see Greece differently. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"A few months ago I had the chance to experience a weekend of sea kayking in the area of West Messenia in Peloponnese. The unique about it is that after a day of exploring the sea and the beautiful beaches, we stoped for the night on a secluded island without water and electricity and slept in tents. Happiness exists in the simple thinks: looking at the beautiful sky, enjoying the food ade by your friends, drinking tasteful wine! "
