Join Tour Directors Kostas, Roberto, and Gloria as they talk about what life is like in Greece and share with you some of their favorite places to visit, best dishes to try and best time to travel to Greece.
Hello! I am Kostas from Greece. I have been living in Athens for the last 25 years, but I grew up in a small town (near ancient Delphi) in Central Greece. I studied Economics in the University of Athens. During my studies, as a hobby, I started leading groups with EF Tours. Pretty soon, I realized that traveling was my true calling and I became a full-time Tour Director with EF Go Ahead Tours - leaving Economics behind for good. This was the best decision I have ever made in my life! It has allowed me to travel and work in a multitude of incredible places and to meet a great number of amazing people...My favorite countries to travel are Greece (of course!), Italy, France, Spain and Turkey. I love learning foreign languages and I speak Greek, English, Italian, French and some basic Spanish and German. When I don't work, my favorite hobbies are cooking, learning about wine and Greek Mythology.
Hello, my name is Gloria and I was born and raised in Rome. I am actually 9 generations from Rome – It is possible I have DNA of Julius Cesar mixed with mine! I lived and went to school in London (where I studied English) and now I have been living in Athens for 15 years. I used to be a ballet dancer until I joined EF Go Ahead Tours in 1994. What a great decision! I love being a Tour Director because the experience of traveling goes through all the 5 senses and I want my travelers to experience that as well!
Hi! My name is Roberto and I am a Tour Director based in Athens, Greece. I was born in Madrid and after finishing my Law Studies in Spain, I moved to Rome for a couple of years. Later, I decided to make the jump to Athens where I have lived now for the last 18 years! I have been with EF Go Ahead Tours for 21 years. I love to travel because I am able to meet people from all over the world. While touring with my travelers around Europe I like to open their eyes, hearts and minds to the world and help them discover new destinations. I am fluent in four languages (Spanish, English, Italian and Greek) but sometimes they become a 'mixed salad' in my brain! I love touring along the Southern part of the Mediterranean and after many tours around Europe my favorite one with Go Ahead is “The Greek Isles” tour. I also love touring in Spain because it is where I am from. I love to show my travelers the best spots for sunsets so they can have beautiful moments on their trip they’ll never forget!
