From my first email communication with Yorgos I have been impressed. He responded promptly in perfect English and in detail. He listened to what we wanted and planned our trip to exceed expectations. He gave us great suggestions and helped out on another portion of our trip. During our time together he was professional, personable, organised, and reliable. He gave us lots of information about the areas we visited; suggested restaurants with good food and authentic atmospheres. Thanks Yorgos for a fab time

Not enough words to express how great was our tour of the southern Peloponnese, It was made great because of the knowledge and personality of tour guide, Yorgos, Who in addition to having a wealth of information was extremely accommodating and friendly. I would say he is one of ToursByLocals best tour guides and recommend him without reservation

We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our tour of the magnificent Mani! The area is among the most beautiful in Greece, the history is fascinating and we ate and lodged in wonderful style. Yorgos did an incredible job. He stayed engaged, interesting, cheerful and flexible for the entirety of our tour and we came to be very fond of him. We have relived numerous aspects of our adventure with great pleasure and would not hesitate one second to recommend both the area and our guide to any and all who ask.

Yorgos was a spectacular guide on our 2 day tour of the southern Pelopponese peninsula. He took us to Kardamili, Sparta, Monemvasia, Githio , Sparti, Mystras, Aeropoli and others. Delightful tourguide. Very informative of history, foods, olive tree farming, society, current issues. It's a trip we'll always treasure. Well worth the price. Great memories.
The trip was very memorable. My guide Yorgos went beyond my expectations and was very accomodating. He made us feel important and gave us the best experience. His knowledge of the area made my trip to Greece the best I have had.

What every traveler hopes for…Yorgos showed us an authentic glimpse of the food, villages. and hauntingly beautiful landscape of the Southwest Peloponnese. A highly experienced guide leading cycling and hiking tours through Europe and the Mediterranean, Yorgos led our family including two young children through the spectacular Diros caves, an olive press, a cheesemaker's homestead, a frescoed churches, seaside villages, ending up his hometown, Kalamata, a lovely beachside center with a youthful vibe.
Very Nice Guide!!!! wonderfull tavel along Kalamata region!!! Yorgos is the best!!!

My aunt and I had the pleasure of taking a tour of the Mani with Yorgos and it was nothing short of the "trip of a lifetime". We were able to customize it into a "roots" trip where we visited the villages of our ancestors. Without the knowledge of Yorgos, we would have never come close to finding our villages due to their remote and steep locations. From the hotels, to the restaurants, everything he chose was absolutely perfect!
I have no hesitation rating Yorgos and this tour as 5 stars. I have myself led 12 person tours to Europe and NZ and have used many guides but I thought Yorgos was exceptional. He has great knowledge, enthusiasm and confidence in his exotic domain in Mani but also an empathetic disposition which makes him a delightful companion. He is fit and strong, as befits as cycling tour leader, but can also happily discuss literary and historical matters. He is fluently bi-lingual and a bargain at this price!
Yorgos was great! We all enjoyed it immensely and were so appreciative of the research Yorgos had put into the trip to make it so special. was able to share his extensive all round knowledge with us.His knowledge of greek food also made it a gourmet tour.He not only knows the area extremely well but also its history. I would regard this trip as the best thing I have done. Wonderful trip.10 out of 5
