After finishing high school I went on to further my education and took a 4 year tourism business management course. I have worked in various hotels and travel agencies.
In 2007 I decided to become a tourist guide I graduated in 2010 and since then I have worked as a licenced tourist guide. These last years I have worked with various cruise companies such as Viking, Thomson , COSTA , Seabourn, Holland America, Regent, Crystal, Princess, P&O, Celebrity, Norwegean Jade, Silver, Royal Caribbean, viking etc. with groups but also VIP and private tours. I love meeting new people and showing them my Island.
Everyday this beautiful island never ceases to amaze me and my guests. The rich history , different types of architecture, various wonderful local products, and of course the lovely weather throughout the season will help to make your visit unforgettable. There are many things to see, palaces, breathtaking views, beautiful beaches, traditional villages, fortresses and lets not forget the excellent cuisine and local wine! Corfu town has been under the protection of UNESCO since 2007 as a world heritage site!I will help you see, feel and understand our magical island and its people.
I will make the best of the few hours you have, to visit the best of corfu. Together depending on your needs we will organise a memorable tour which, will give me the chance to show you just how much I love my island and what I do.
A Recent Review of this guide
Irene was such a great fun loving guide. She was so knowledgeable about the myths and stories of the Greeks. She took us everywhere around the town. We walked around the streets where cars don't go . We stop at a shop for Greek specialties. We went to a palace and she knew everything about the plenty of statutes. It made it so enjoyable. Then she took us to a farm where so much was going on there between small crops and animals. She had a great sense of humor. I would recommend her as your guide!
I am a greek licensed tourist guide by the ministry of culture and tourism.
I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
I am not permitted to guide in the Russian language - only English and Greek
