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.” For travelers wanting to hit the seas, Agnos will arrange private boat charters between the country’s lesser-known isles, like Zákinthos, one of the Ionians. Back on land, she’ll arrange an itinerary that immerses visitors in island life — whether it’s dining with locals or visiting local vineyards. Recently, she’s been spending a lot of time developing cultural and archaeological excursions in Peloponnese.
