When I was a child, I used to play among the ancient ruins. I imagined what the ancient Greeks and ancient buildings looked like. That was the cause of loving ancient Greece, culture and art. I made a lot of excavations in Greece for a few years, discovering archaeological findings from every era.
Then my love for my country and travelling urged me to become a licensed guide. Firstly, I worked as a tour guide in Olympia with ToursByLocals as well. But Corfu was always my secret love. Since I was a kid a part of my summer holidays was spent on this majestic island. Corfu has been a beloved second home to me. Therefore, I took the big decision to move here and make my life dream come true!
During my tours I'm always kind, friendly and passionate. I have with me an iPod where I show extra pictures about the history of the place. My tours are customized according to my guests' needs and interests. I'm always next to you to provide any kind of help you need. With me, as your personal tour guide, you'll have an expert at your service, but especially a new Greek friend. We'll discover Corfu together and even local traditions, culture and food.
QUALITY is my keyword, a tour with me is often described by clients as an "educational and funny experience".
Corfu has also uncountable beauties to discover. It is my pleasure when travelers are full of joy and knowledge at the end of my tour.
Please do not hesitate to ask me anything about my tours or Corfu. I will be glad to answer all of your questions.
It will be my pleasure to welcome you to this unique island and enjoy with me Authentic Greek Experiences!
A Recent Review of this guide
Vassalis is maybe the best guide from Tours by locals we have ever had. He is extremely knowledgeable .He has a masters degree in archaeology. He has a great sense of humor and wonderful energy. He spent extra time with us and was very flexible about our itinerary. There is much more to do in Corfu that I anticipated. The old town and the Forts are really worth a day.There is also the remains of a third century church..Additionally seeing the spectacular views from around the island is memorable .
I am a LICENSED guide by the Greek Ministry of Tourism and I have the permission to offer Private tours into ancient sites and museums all over Greece.
