“I love traveling and exploring new places, cultures, and food myself, and I love the fact that I can help young travelers do the same thing. The look in their eyes whenever they see a monument, place, or city that they've only read or heard about, is priceless. It's unbelievably rewarding to be part of this in someone's life.”

— Kyriakos, Tour Director since 2015
