Who We Are

We are a group of young, skillful, enthusiastic and highly experienced Professionals with a long background in the field of tourism, wishing to introduce to you New, Alternative and Personalized Ways in visiting the island of Crete.

Elissos was created and is directed by Marilina Paters, an Official Licensed Tourist Guide, holding a P.G.C. in Prehistoric Religion and Arts- Mythology and a Performer. With fifteen years of experience in the field of tourism and arts, having cooperated with many national and international tour operators and with two generations family background in tourism, 2013 she created her own Company, aiming to introduce to Crete visitors new ways in literally experiencing Crete deeply with all their senses.

Our Team today consists of Expert Professionals: Very knowledgeable local Licensed Guides, motivational Art Academics such as Musicologists, Theatrologists, Choreographers and Photographers and enthusiastic Natures Lovers such as mountain Trekkers and Mountaineers.

In the tours we design, we present the History, the Arts, the Traditions, the Mythology and the Spirit of Crete in an experiential and interactive way, as we aim to offer to you a Complete Travel Experience, which includes features for Mind, Body and Spirit.

In Elissos, we all share the same vision and philosophy: We wish to create for you a real Cultural Journey in Crete. To offer not just high quality tours, but high quality Travel Experiences in our beautiful island. A real Travel in time, myths, arts and traditions. We focus on your Journey to be primarily Experiential. We urge you to interact, see, feel, smell, touch, taste Crete. These are after all the Travels we never forget.
