Zissimos, whose family-owned company is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, can provide the classics—like private sailing off Santorini—as well as farm tours and cooking classes with grandmothers in Crete. "Offering only one destination only allows me to continuously hone my craft," Zissimos explains.

Recently, he's been booking trips to less-visited Cycladic islands, particularly Páros. "And on Antiparos, the new hotel provides a peaceful sanctuary for those looking for to enjoy a slower pace, and enjoy privacy and minimalist luxury," he notes.

One of Zissimos's most memorable requests? A client decided mid-vacation that it was time to pop the question to his girlfriend — and called Zissimos for help. The following evening, the pair was escorted to a private beach for a multicourse meal with cocktails, candles galore, and live music to set the mood. "It was special and humbling that he allowed us to plan such a life changing event," Zissimos says.
