Yorgos Paraskevopoulos

Tour Leader Yorgos Paraskevopoulos

Yorgos moved with his family from New York to his current home in Kalamata, Greece, at the ripe age of eight. He studied sociology at the American College of Greece. Yorgos met Rick and Paola (ExperiencePlus! co-founders) on the Greek Isles while working as a cruise director. You’ll find him on tours in Greece, Scotland, Italy and Turkey. When not guiding, he spends the winter months caring for his family’s olive trees and producing exceptional olive oil and Kalamata olives.
