George T.

Chania, CRETE, Greece

Born and raised in Chania, spent 10 years in the UK, studied modern history, did two MAs and worked for Marriott hotels as a manager for 4 years.

I work in tourism for more than 25 years and since 2006 I manage a small family hotel and offer private tours to various locations. I constantly try to discover the nature, history and traditions of Crete, and show its beauties to visitors. As a member of many local organizations and passionate about the island, I regularly hike, research the local history and discover the endless hidden gems of the island. Every tour is a discovery and experience, a journey through time, and the Greek civilization.
My aim is to share my passion of the island to its visitors and enjoy a discovery experience. As a traveler myself I have an insight of what a guest needs and try to adapt tours and focus to cater the needs of its participants. Whatever your interest might be, from visiting a beach, hiking a gorge or exploring Chania town, I could be the perfect partner for your trip. I have learned that not only knowledge of a guide is important but also his joyful personality is what make a tour special and leave the best memories for its participants.
I can organize private tours to cater your needs, just send me a message with your broad interests or locations you would like to visit. Have a pleasant stay in Chania!
