I set up Greece Travel Guide in 2017 to share my passion for this beautiful country. Its climate, culture, variety and relaxed attitude make it a truly unforgettable holiday destination, and each year I look forward to at least one trip back to what has become a very special place for me.
Through this website, I hope to share with you my advice, reviews and suggestions to make your experience in Greece as good as it can be.

My History with Greece
My first experience of visiting Greece was a family holiday to Rhodes back in 1990, when I was just 8 years old. I have lasting memories of hot sunny days at the beach, swimming in the sea and playing around on the hot sand. These blissful days were followed by warm evenings eating generous portions of great food, served by happy and welcoming locals proud to introduce visitors to their beautiful islands.
I’m sure Pefkos has changed significantly over the 27 years since my first visit, but I’m pleased to say that Greece itself still retains the unique charm and sense of relaxation that I remember all those years ago. Each time I step off the plane and take a deep breath of the warm, fragrant air, I have a sense of being at peace that is hard to find anywhere else in the world.
I can’t claim to have visited every island – there are over 150 inhabited ones to choose from – but over the past three decades I have been to:
Many of them on multiple occasions. While several of them are considered tourist hotspots, a lot of my more recent trips have been branching out to less well-known islands. Each time I visit, I gain new perspectives and insights into the country, its inhabitants and get to see and explore new places in a way that never gets boring or feels too familiar.
