My journey started in the small Greek island of Thassos. When I was a little boy, I dreamt of becoming a footballer, an astronaut, a millionaire, a Nobel Prize winner… Looking back, I see a young dreamer, restless and hopeful for the future! I started out by studying History & Archaeology in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki; then, moved on to study Law in Manchester and then graduated from Leiden University with an Advanced Masters in Air & Space Law. I found myself working and living abroad for many years. I travelled to many countries and cities, always trying to improve myself and get exposed to new experiences. I recently came to realise that my real motivation behind this constant change was to explore new places and cultures, meet new people and make new friends. 

I now know that my true dream is to travel the world and genuinely get to know the places I visit, their history, their myths and legends, their values and customs... It is not enough for me to visit a destination for mere sightseeing. I want more; I want better and interactive experiences, I like to blend-in with the locals, to get to know the true story of a place and its people and not just listen to more dry facts and dates. And through that realisation, the conception of the Greek TravelTellers was born; an idea of a company, or more appropriately, a group of people sharing the same dream and the same values as myself. This is the story of the Greek TravelTellers and I hope you can join us on this journey through time and space.

Constantina, Field Expert - Archaeologist

Constantina's genuine love of Athens and her inherent enthusiasm make her a natural fit for Greek TravelTellers. Having studied History and Archaeology in the Kapodistrian University of Athens with a Master in Arts and Culture from Leiden University of the Netherlands, Constantina has worked in many Art Institutes and participated in archaeological excavations. Throughout her 8-year career within the country and abroad, she gained experience working in multi-culture environments including Greece, The Netherlands and Germany and is eager to share her dreams and passion for culture with our team.

"Greek TravelTellers is the reason why i came back to Athens. They are the answer to a question I did not even know I have. Meeting new cultures and learning what life is about from people themselves is an integral part of my philosophy. I love working with this team because we have the same dream: to show and share our love of Athens and Greece in an experiential, passionate, out-of-the-ordinary way."

"Greek TravelTellers is not yet another company in the field of tourism; rather, a group of young creative people, who share love for Greece and everyone who is interested in this Land and its History. Their ingenious way in approaching Greek Ηistory is what makes it so engaging, bringing specialists and amateurs alike to be fascinated by it! Personally, I feel that the collaboration with Greek TravelTellers is a captivating journey through time, back to the cradle of anthropocentric civilisation." 

Poliana, Ritual Healing Arts & Meditation Expert

Poliana's work focuses on ritual healing arts and world cultural immersions. Her passion is to share the precious knowledge gained through her world travels with other people, delving deep into the wisdom of ancient traditions. For ancient Greeks, a way to heal and awaken the human psyche was to meditate in nature's power places and temples. Poliana creates a safe space and guides you through that deep, uplifting experience in order for you to evoke your Memory and reconnect to your true self and potential.

"I find the experience Greek TravelTellers offer unique and unpretentious. Taking people into an amazing experiential journey through time and space, as if they were real citizens of ancient Greece. Storytelling, since the beginning of time, has been the most efficient way to educate children and adults. This, in combination with the intelligent and creative tour designs offers a one of a kind experience!"
