Meet the Team

We are a team of young talented individuals that aim in providing alternative experiences to the travelers of our island. Our philosophy is to showcase the best Crete has to offer through a series of experiences that underline the true, authentic and original spirit of Crete.

We believe that Crete has a soul that is not portrayed in the conventional tourism models. The mentality of our excursions is based on three major axis that highlight Crete as a destination besides the sea and sun.

These are Gastronomy, Environment and Culture. Our team of experts do their best in order to showcase in the most immediate way how these three dimensions interact and collaborate within the life of the people of Crete.

Join us and experience for yourself the power, magnitude and richness of Cretan culture.

Join us and leave your footsteps on Cretan Paths.

Trying to combine my studies and my love for the food and nature, I caught the opportunity to develop a new challenge. We can offer what we, as travellers, seek and look for in vacations... the real experiences! So Cretan Paths came true.

Athina Giakoumaki

Travel Agent – CEO

Being for a long time in tourism business, I feel very happy that the establishment of "Cretan Paths" gives me the possibility to encourage, consult and assist the passionate team of "Cretan Paths", to bring people in touch with a "different" Crete. The main idea is to give its honored guests the possibility to discover the authenticity of our blessed homeland far away from noisy, bustling areas.
