My name is Maria, I have been in more than 55 countries around the world and after returning in Greece, I am ready to be your private guide!
My name is Maria and I come from a seaside small village in Greece. I am an extrovert person with excellent interpersonal skills and a curious and ambitious travel industry enthusiast. I have more than 15 years of solid work experience in customer service and 3 years in managerial positions in companies such as COSTA CRUISES and TUI. I have extensive international background having studied and/or worked around the world for five years. I have dealt with more than 75 nationalities on a cruise ship, sailing at the "World Tour Cruise" with the same guests for more than 3 months!!! Even though I have been to more than 55 countries around the world, I truly believe that you will not only stunned by the breathtaking beauty of nature (mountains, lakes, beaches) but also by the experiences that you can have (eco-cultural centres, horse riding, hiking, etc.) and mostly by the kindness of locals! Regarding the experiences offered in this tour, prepare yourself to learn the Greek language, cook and dance like a real Greek! My overall goal is to INTERACT, SHARE knowledge, traditions, experiences and "FEEL like at home"!

Lovisha‘Explore Athens and Learn How to Speak, Cook and Dance Like a Greek’, Nov 2023
Maria is extremely fun person to travel with. Exploring Greece with her will make every step a dance and every moment a memory. She loves Greece and that would reflect when you speak to her. Learning Greek language, dance, cuisine and culture will be empowering. She has a great method of teaching you and taking you through all this and it will be one of the best experiences you'll have. She made me feel home and part of her life and family. Have found a lifelong friend in her and I would recommend everyone to join her in her crazy adventures in any part of the world and you'll return with a bagpack of lifetime memories. So grateful to her!

My first Join my Trip trip was with Maria as my guide and companion, she is a sympathetic, open-minded and warm-hearted person. The organization and her plan were very well thought out and I noticed how much time she invested and knew all the sights, monasteries and churches and their stories very well. Even the villa owner made me very welcome, the three of us had very funny and profound long conversations, I felt at home and never wanted to leave :) Through Maria I was able to get to know Greece, its traditions and even the cuisine better and better through a cooking class. I highly recommend Maria, whether it's for the great planning, communication, the beauty of Seliana, the unique experience, or even the kind-hearted interactions. I would like to thank you here again for the wonderful time, it was a pleasure getting to know you <3
