Savvas S.

Larnaca, LARNACA, Cyprus

Hello, and welcome to Cyprus! My name is Savvas and I am a friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced guide.

In my profession, as a tourist guide licensed by the Cyprus Tourism Organization, I like to meet new people from all over the world and give them as much information about my island's history, treasures and its unique places.
Currently, I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Hotel and Tourism Management. I have an MA in International Relations and MBA in International Business as well as a B. Sc. degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management. I also studied in the field of Developing Tourism in Small State Islands.
I have 25 years of teaching experience at the undergraduate level in the fields of hospitality and tourism in private and public tertiary education in Cyprus. My research activities focus on Cultural Heritage Tourism, Interpretation of Heritage Sites, and Visitors' Authentic experience. I am a world traveling Cypriot passionate about nature and cultural heritage.
I am a co-author of the books "Culinary Cultures of Europe - Identity, Diversity and Dialogue" Council of Europe 2005, European Cookery- "Tradition and Innovation" (2004) and an author in many articles related to tourism.
I worked as an international group leader for 24 years and I am a member of the organizing committee of ICOT (International Conference on Tourism) since 2008 around the world.
I feel very fortunate to be able to work as a guide in Cyprus.

Drop me a line and I will create a Tailor-made tour for you, according to your interests and wishes.
Either you travel alone or in a group, I will find a programme suitable for you to create an unforgettable experience!
I am confident my enthusiasm and professionalism and sense of humor will ensure you enjoy the time we spend together.
