Guide Bio

Get To Know Greece Guide Konstadinos Karanikolis

Konstadinos‘ number one priority is you!
Why did you become a tour guide? How did you make the transition to becoming a tour guide?

I started as a van and bus driver. Due to my good English knowledge and my polite character I soon became a Driver/Guide.

What does a typical day look like for you?

The typical day is making contact and arranging with clients or driving them around.

Have you got a certain style of guiding, or do you just run with it on the day?

My style changes according to clients needs.

What is the best part of your job?

Driving around with happy customers and letting them know the beauties of my country.

What’s the most memorable experience you’ve had on a tour or trip?

When a group of tourists that i was giving them a tour invited me to their table for lunch and we had a great time eating and singing.

Every job has its ups and downs. Are there any aspects of your job that you don’t like or aren’t that keen on?

I don’t enjoy when I have people unkind and without manners, but this is also part of the job so I accept it with kindness and professionalism.

In your view, what makes a good tour guide?

To be kind and ready to adjust the tour according to the type of people you have. The experienced guide makes his customers feel safe, enjoy the tour, get lots of interesting information during it, and feel free to ask everything they want during the trip

A good guide always knows how to make his clients trust him, feel safe and lucky that he is there with them. As a local that’s my strong advantage and also with my 15 years experience as a professional driver helps me avoid the traps.

And finally, have you got any tips for people who are interested in booking a guide like yourself, but aren’t too sure what to look for?

I believe the best tip is to look for serious companies, with friendly local persons with experience on tours as guides/drivers and keep in mind that with good mood and a polite behavior the guide will return to them the best of his efforts to make them have a memorable experience.

    Duncan provided and outstanding day of fishing for my two boys (16&12) and myself. Out of five stars I would give Duncan 5 stars. He was early to pick us up and provided a nice lunch also. My 12 year old caught the first two fish that were 6-8 pounds each! This was a highlight on our trip to Scotland. My 16 year old then caught a monster 15 pound Pike to out perform us all, what a thrill! We caught more than 14 fish total. This a great experience to see other parts of Scotland and experience it. This was a day of “catching” more than just “fishing”. If you would like to add a great day of fishing to your Scottish Holiday, Duncan is your man!
    Thanks,

    As seen on Trip Advisor :I’m going to make this short and simple. I have hired many fishing guide around the world. Duncan was the best by far! He is professional, knowledgeable, honest, and most important he put you on fish. I had a great experience fishing with Duncan and I highly recommend him. Thanks for the great experience and memories. Sam

    As seen on TripAdvisor: “Pure, Unadulterated FUN” 5 of 5 starsReviewed August 26, 2014 Coming from a limited fishing background, I had an amazing time with Duncan and my family (and caught my first fish)! Duncan is professional, patient, and extremely knowledgeable about the entire Scottish ecosystem. He is always on time and is flexible to alter the trip to your specific needs. I highly recommend this as a part of any and every trip to Scotland, or even if you want to get away from the big city and enjoy a bit of nature! It was an amazing experience and I would use Fishinguide again!
