Greek Island Tours - Greek Isles Tour Vacation Packages Athens to Paros, Santorini, Mykonos, Spetses, Patmos, Syros, Crete Greece
is a different kind of Greek travel company,
delivering an experience focused on authenticity, intimacy, and personalized luxury in the Greek isles and mainland
True Greece was born out of the unique personal experience of our President and CEO, Christos Stergiou. Christos grew up on the Greek Island of Patmos
, learning the art of Greek hospitality at the feet of his parents, who own and operate one of the island's leading boutique resorts. He then moved to the U.S., where he completed his studies in Economics at Brandeis University
, worked at the economic consulting firm of Charles River Associates Inc., and earned an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Through those ten years of studying and working in the U.S., Christos realized that there were few appealing alternatives for travelers who wished to take a trip to the Greek Islands
that balanced personalized luxury with authenticity
. Thus he found himself frequently helping friends and colleagues plan trips to Greece,
and he often met these friends in the islands to help guide them along their way.
Ultimately, Christos recognized that with his intimate local knowledge of the Greek isles,
a strong hospitality background, and a true understanding of the high-end traveler, he could deliver something that others couldn't - a luxurious Greek island trip
that allowed U.S. clients to not just visit Greece but to truly experience Greece
. With the help of Ben Rowe, a fellow graduate of Stanford Business School, True Greece developed from a great idea into a professionally run and creatively managed business.
Christos has been continuously recognized every year since 2008 by Conde Nast Traveler magazine
as one of the World's Top Travel Specialists
for Greece. Additionally, Christos has also been consecutively selected since 2009 by Travel + Leisure for the magazine's A-List as one of the Top Travel Agents globally
. These annual awards recognize Christos for his extensive knowledge and unparalleled insight on the Greek isles and culture, and for his savvy execution of customized vacations that deliver an authentic Greek experience.Our clients' own words best describe the company and encapsulate the True Greece vision, brought to life by our core True Greece team presented below.The True Greece Team

Walking on the steps that men like Socrates or Plato stepped on and explaining the Greek heritage to our guests is an experience I cannot get enough of. I love my country, and I love its history; it is through this exploration of ancient Greece and glorious times past that I try to convey to my guests our nation's evolution into the beautiful Greece of the modern age.
