We are a recently founded Greek tour operator; we organize tours to Athens and Peloponnese. All of us have two things in common: our love for people and our passion for our country. Our common goal is to make new friends from all over the world, to accompany them on a unique cultural journey and to share with them our vast knowledge for our land, making them feel at home. We plan only small group tours (to 16 people each time); it is a choice that allows us to take care of all the details, with quality being our primary concern, create a friendly and intimate atmosphere, offer little surprises on a daily basis, satisfy the needs of our visitors as much as possible

How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...

Economic responsibility

(a)We have put a lot of effort into promoting local products and delicacies. We always encourage our visitors, if they wish to go shopping, to buy from small, local shops. Indicatively, we should mention local shops that specialize in handmade textiles, in authentic art and crafts, gastronomic products and local wines. On the way to our destination, we offer our guests gifts from the production of the region that we will be visiting. (b)Our members have decided to donate 1% of our gross annual income to charitable organizations in Peloponnese, hoping that in this way we can offer some support to the local communities. Information regarding our donations will be posted on our FB page at the beginning of each year. (c)We are also supporters from 5 years ago for the Greek action of MB Energy “I gather caps…I share smiles”. With money from the sale of caps, trolleys for disabled people are purchased

Environmental responsibility

In spite of the economic problems of our homeland, we keep on trying to make the best we can with the utmost respect to the local communities and to its environment by using only paper packages for our gifts and by recycling the plastic bottles of water we offer to our visitors. Any advice or suggestions that you may have will be much appreciated and welcomed.

Social responsibility

One of the members of Emelia, the architect Nick Polizois, has meticulously conducted research on the railways of Peloponnese; a deluxe edition of this research has just funded by Alpha Bank, one of the most reliable banks in Greece and will be published in 2018. He has also recently completed his research on the architectural designs of the neoclassical buildings of Patra, with a view to publishing said research in 2019.
