Ioannis Kotzianoglou - Private Guide in Rethymnon
Languages: English, French
I began my career in tourism 30 years ago, immediately after graduating from the Higher Education School of professional Tour Guides of Greece.
I had the opportunity to experience both the contact with clients and at the same time the evolution of the newly-born Greek travel industry.
Gaining my initial experience in the field in 1982 with a specialized incoming travel agency named Talos Tours, based in Crete. For the next twelve years I successfully represented and provided services for many European travel and tourism companies.
Relocating to Brussels I subsequently diversified into tour operating which, from 1992 to 2000 enabled me to accrue extensive knowledge and experience along with personal/business contacts within the field of European and world travel and tourism.
On my return to Crete I decided to utilize my combined accumulated experience within the Greek market as niche Touroperator (special interests programs), Leisure Industry Consultant; further diversifying my activities into the fields of web publishing and Event Management.
Now based in Rethymnon I head a dynamic, highly qualified team.
