My name is Ioannis and I am a licensed tour guide from Kalamata in the deep south of the Peloponnese peninsula of southern Greece. I have studied History and Archaeology in the University of Athens, where I was the valedictorian of my class, graduating with a 1st class honours degree. During my studies, I have also received two awards from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation for being 1st of my class. After my graduation, I continued my studies, obtaining a Master’s degree in Modern History from the University College London (UCL) and an MA in Cultural Management from Panteio University. After working for a while as a teacher, I decided to retrain myself as a tour guide and here I am! I am available for tours mainly in the Peloponnese, in English and Greek. I would love to talk to you about Greek history and culture! The Peloponnese peninsula is considered to be the cradle of Greece and the birthplace of some of the world’s greatest civilizations. Together we can explore thousands of years of Greek history, since, as I have always said, a journey to the Peloponnese is like a time travel to the glorious past of our country. I am also available for nature tours if you want to explore the wilderness! I am generally a friendly, relaxed and easy going person, who loves talking about history and culture. I am also an artistic person who loves photography and film making. I have actually graduated from the Focus School of Photography in Athens and I am currently preparing some photo tours as well! I have lived abroad and I have travelled a lot, something that made me realise that every culture is unique and deserves respect. Thus, I’d love to learn from you, as much as you are gonna learn from me. Come with me and let’s begin our journey to one of Greece’s most beautiful areas!
