Come and get to know the REAL SANTORINI with me!
My name is Eugenia and I am a certified, English, Italian, Spanish and greek speaking tour guide.
Being born and growing up in a place where myths and history blended across centuries, I developed a keen interest in culture and archaeology and a great curiosity about foreign cultures and languages. I studied Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Athens, majoring in Italian and Spanish literature and continued my education at the National School of Tour Guides, in Thessaloniki. Three years of intense classes and numerous tour-guides in Greece credited me with many fulfilling experiences.
I worked as a tour-leader in Italy, Check Republic, Serbia, Germany and Turkey. And in all these travels, I felt that getting to know a place was a lot more than sightseeing and museum visits. It was about the people and every day life, gastronomy and habits and all these particularities that make one country different from another. In Greece I have worked in various places such as Athens, Olympia, Mykonos, Thessaloniki, Meteora and Delphi.
For the last years, I have been working and living in Santorini. When I first step my foot on this island, I immediately had a feeling of belonging. Santorini is a place combining simplicity with greatness: the true Hellenic essence! Its rich historical and cultural background, the wild volcanic landscape, the white houses contrasting with the Aegean blue, the Cycladic light, the magical sunset in Oia, its aromatic wines and delicacies of its land, the vivid traditions and hospitality of its inhabitants make Santorini my paradise on earth… which I invite you to come and experience together with the Greek spirit and the warmth of the locals and I am sure you would be thrilled as much as I was…

Our time with Eugenia greatly added to our appreciation of Santorini beyond the key tourist destinations. Her enthusiasm for the island was infectious. With her rich descriptions, we found Akrotiri fascinating. Her driver was also very skilled.
