In a country as well trodden as Greece, travelers are always on the lookout for unspoiled locales. And Stergiou — who grew up in Athens and on the island of Patmos — knows every secret beach, under-the-radar island, independent hotel, and private winery. The Athens-based founder of TrueTrips works with travelers of all ages, budgets, and interests to organize more than 100 trips to Greece per year. His itineraries are jam-packed with unique, off-the-beaten-path activities like private sailing trips, authentic cooking lessons, and guided hikes. Though he specializes in uncovering the country’s more ‘hidden’ side, he can hook his clients up with reservations at the country’s top bolt-holes like Santorini’s Canaves Oia boutique hotels. For travelers wanting to explore further afield, Stergiou and his team are just as knowledgeable about Italy, Spain, and Portugal.
