Elena C.

Ag. Nikolaos, Lasithi, Greece

I offer a variety of private tours, walking / hiking tours, tailor made tours and jeep tours.

As a professionally trained, multilingual guide I can guarantee you an unforgettable and rewarding experience of the biggest and the most southern Greek island, CRETE.
Discover - Explore - Taste CRETE with me as a professional guide on your side!

One of the most unique experiences of the biggest Greek island is to take part in a Private Tour through the intact places of genuine nature, combined by the visit of Byzantine sacred architecture or the remains of Minoan settlement.
Each of my tours is complemented by an unforgettable culinary experience of domestic food in a local, traditional taverna. As Cretan culinary art is known as the most healthy Mediterranean diet, you will dream about it even at home!

Summary of my guiding experiences:
Unforgettable are the moments when I was guiding, like Professor of History of Art, scholars and students through my birth place Ljubljana, charming Budapest, nostalgic Vienna, magical Tuscany, Napoleon's Elba, and mystical Corfu.
As University of the Third Age's Lecturer of History of Art and Sociology of Culture, I was guiding university students through fascinating places of ancient Istria, Carinthian Holly Marie field/ Gosposvetsko Polje, Mariasaal and eternal Rome.

As a tourist guide, I am passionate about sharing my knowledge of Greece mainland, Peloponnese (Korinth, Epidavros, Navplio, Nemea), Ionian islands and first of all CRETE - the paradise I call home.

Book unforgettable experiences of Crete with me as your professional guide!
