since 2006
I am based in Chania, west Crete. I do various Private tours and Shore Excursions since 2006, half or full day. I specialise in hiking (Samaria gorge is the highlight of Crete), Chania old town tour, visiting Elafonisi and Balos beaches (no11 best beach in the world according to Trip Advisor), experiencing authentic Cretan tastes (Winery, Brewery, restaurants and Oil Factory tours). I offer Cretan culture and history tours and a WW2 tour. I have a degree in modern history, 2 MAs and speak 5 languages.
I was born and raised in Chania, travelled extensively the world and spent 10 years in the UK. There I studied modern history, did two MAs in history and politics and worked for Marriott hotels as a manager for 4 years. I work in tourism for more than 25 years and since 2006 I manage a small family hotel and offer private tours to various locations. I constantly try to discover the nature, history and traditions of Crete, and show its beauties to visitors. As a member of many local organizations and passionate about the island, I regularly hike on the White Mountains (Lefka Ori), research the local history and discover the endless hidden gems of the island. Every tour, every hike is a discovery and experience, a journey through time, and the Greek civilization.
My aim is to share my passion of the island to its visitors, and do not just see it as 'work' but as a mutual discovery experience. As a traveler myself I have an insight of what a guest needs and try to adapt tours and focus to cater the needs of its participants. Whatever your interest might be, from visiting a beach, hiking a gorge or exploring Chania town, I could be the perfect partner for your trip. I have learned that not only knowledge of a guide is important but also his joyful personality is what make a tour special and leave the best memories for its participants.
I can organize private tours to cater your needs, just send me a message with your broad interests or locations you would like to visit. Have a pleasant stay in Chania!
