Agnos, who spends six to eight months a year in Greece, builds her trips with an exacting eye for detail. She makes both scheduled and incognito visits to preferred hotels (updating her list of go-to rooms, plus those to avoid) and meets with her hand-selected guides and drivers. Agnos even hangs out at regional airports to ensure that the pickup process runs smoothly. Her staff also experience it all firsthand so they can share everything with clients, “down to the views, sounds, and smells.” Recently, she traveled extensively through northern Greece, the Ionian Islands, the Saronic Coast, and the Peloponnese, where new and renovated hotels (Amanzoe and Nikki Beach in Porto Heli, Grace Hotels’ upcoming property in Kalamata) are fueling demand.
Special booking: Agnos can arrange a day of Greek beer tasting—flights are served with plenty of traditional meze—in Athens. “Greece is not known internationally for its beer but it has many fantastic craft varieties that aren’t yet exported.”
Specialties: Greece, Turkey, Spain, Italy, and Egypt
