I craft unique, immersive, experiential tours, with locals in heart! I'm opening doors of local homes and traditional family run businesses to you, so you can experience local culture and traditions and take back home the best of Greece: Greek hospitality! I quit my dream corporate career to share passion for escapades with people from all corners of the world. I believe in deep connections of travelers with locals and with the essence and nature of the place visited. that’s why I founded Escapades. Escapade for me is about spending time in nature and enjoying simple joys of life!
