Kostas G.

Irákleion, Greece

Hello and welcome to Crete! My name is Kostas and I am a LICENSED tourist guide with the permission to guide you into all archaeological sites and museums.

I am also an archaeologist holding a Master's Degree in Prehistoric Archaeology (University of Crete) and a PhD in Minoan Archaeology (University of Liverpool), while I have participated in many excavations all around Greece and Turkey.
The island of Crete is the place where the Minoan culture, the first elaborate European civilisation, was flourished. Nowadays it is a popular touristic resort with an amazing variety in the landscape, a unique mixture of different cultural elements and a paradise of gastronomic delights, characteristics that make it very attractive.
My guests will have the opportunity to discover various aspects of Cretan history and archaeology, from the times of King Minos till today, while I would be happy to share with you my passion, knowledge and love for the island of Crete.
Apart from the offered tours I would be glad to organise any tour starting from Heraklion area, because as a licensed tourist guide I have the right accompany my guests in any site of historical/archaeological interest, traditional villages, wineries etc. I would be very happy to prepare custom made tours to meet the expectations of every traveller.
