In Greece we excel in making our guests feel welcomed as members of our family
The great Afro-American poet and award-winning author Dr. Maya Angelou once wrote: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”.
In Greece we excel in making our guests feel welcomed as members of our family. The friendly and generous reception and entertainment of visitors is in our DNA from ancient times.
We even had a God, XENIOS ZEUS, dedicated to hospitality. This is a much respected virtue throughout our history that makes it important for us to greet every traveler as an old friend and honoured guest, even in the age of mass tourism.
As the GNTO’s new Secretary General I feel the responsibility and the obligation to fulfill my role.
