Greece

Being of Greek background, I have been traveling to Greece for many years. I also speak the language fluently. I have a deep and emotional connection with the country and its people. Each year, I include an area that I have not been to before to expand my knowledge of the country. I also visit the popular areas such as Mykonos and Santorini to make sure that the quality of services remain on par. I can advise you of the best places to visit, hotels to stay, sites to see and restaurants to enjoy. For example, outside of Athens, there is a small village with a restaurant frequented by locals that offers the most delicious lamb chops cooked on an outdoor spit and sold by the kilo!

Insider Tip

Agreco Farm on Crete is a true farm experience. Buy its produce and products, from olive oil to wine to soap to jams and other delicacies.

Croatia
Croatia

When I have traveled to Croatia, my goal has been to experience the country – not just visit it. This way, I can help plan trips with the spirit of the country in mind. Discovering the many aspects of Croatia is fun and fascinating. Planning a trip to include your special interests such as food, wine, biking, or hiking helps make a vacation even more special. If you are a foodie, I can suggest oil and wine tasting options in Split or Hvar or Dubrovnik as well as cooking classes. Whether it's the white wine Posip from Korcula or the red Dingac from the Peljesac area, you will enjoy some of the best wines in the world. The Croatian people are very proud of their wines! Biking in the countryside on the island of Hvar or around Dubrovnik is lots of fun and the scenery amazing. Walking the medieval walls of Dubrovnik brings history to life. Enjoy a concert under the twinkling stars in the open square in front of Diocletian's Palace in Split. In Dubrovnik, there are often free concerts taking place in cathedrals and squares, and special art exhibitions such as Dali in 2018. Island hopping the Croatian Isles gives you the chance to swim in crystal clear turquoise water. Take one-day cruises or water taxis to the nearby islands to explore. Enjoy fresh fish grilled with olive oil and delicious fried potatoes. With one of my customized tours, you will experience Croatia – not just visit it.

Insider Tip

Enjoy a taste of the finest homemade ice cream in Dubrovnik at Dolce Vita or tasting olive oil in Split at Uje Oil Bar.
