I visited Hydra over the European summer. My experience of the island was made all the better thanks to Maria and her amazing tour! Maria is a local from the Hydra, and knows everything there is to know about her beautiful little island! From historical facts, hidden gems, where to swim and where to eat.
Maria is fantastically friendly and accomodating. I absolutely recommend Mariaâ€™s tours to anyone who wants a genuine tour of Hydra!
Thank you for your time Maria! See you soon.
Maria is the ultimate guide. She is very local, very knowledgable, and very very nice with tons of patience. She knows every inch of Hydra and all of its history. Seeing it together with her really adds so many layers to the experience.
It was a pleasure to meet Maria and have a tour on her island.
Maria, is a beautiful, born and bred young lady from Hydra with exceptional historical knowledge. My daughters and I had a wonderful short tour with Maria which was the perfect thing to do on our first day. She shared all the main historical facts of the islands, pointed out all the famous buildings, statues and generally gave us a wonderful overview of Hydra. We all felt more connected to the island from having spent time with Maria. She’s warm, engaging and easy to be with. Thank you Maria, see you next time.
My husband and I traveled to Greece and Hydra in September of 2017. We were fortunate enough to book a walking tour with Maria. She arrived on time and greeted us warmly. She walked us through the history of Hydra, pointing out geographic and cultural touchstones. She was generous with her time and spirit and tailored the tour to our preferences. For example, when she heard my husband enjoyed history, she made a point of showing him the governor’s home (her ancestor!) and the ship captain’s statue and folklore and him and his life. When I mentioned that I was enthralled with Greek beauty, she brought me to an old-fashioned pharmacy with custom-made skin care and beauty items. We finished our tour eating the best Greek pastries we’ve ever eaten, made by her aunt, who own The Anemone bakery on Hydra. We found Maria to be a wonderful ambassador for Hydra. Her tour was interesting, relevant, just the right length of time, and absolutely memorable. I highly recommend spending time on Hydra with Maria. Everything we learned from her about her home island made it that much more interesting and enjoyable for us. Thank you, Maria! We will see you again.
Maria is the consummate guide! Energetic, charming, knowledgeable, passionate, warm and engaging. Whatever your interest sheâ€™ll tailor the trip for you. Book the grand tour soon after your arrival so youâ€™re familiar with the town – there are so many hidden treasures you may not find or interpret properly without Mariaâ€™s help.
Maria is the perfect tour guide. She knows her island and its history so well. Also she speaks clearly and beautifully, and projects her voice so that all can hear. I highly recommend her! A visit to Hydra would not be complete without this most important tour.
A Beautiful guide inside and out. A true young lady. Very knowledgable. Very Courteous and in love with what she does. Gave us a different view of what Hydra was all about. She kindled our curiousity about the region that we will go back and study the history of Hydra in details. we highly recommend her.
Hydra would not be complete without this most important tour.
First of all, if you are trying to decide whether to do a day-trip to Hydra or stay for a night or two – stay! It’s a beautiful island, with an interesting and bustling port and a fascinating history. My family and I (wife and two teenage daughters) saw Maria’s flier in the window at a local restaurant and contacted her to see if we could join a tour the next morning. She was able to include us on short notice, and we were so glad she did. Maria Voulgari knows Hydra – the history, the places, the people. Her passion and enthusiasm for the island where she was born and raised, is infectious. Hydra could not ask for a better ambassador. I don’t think it’s possible to ask her a question about Hydra which she can’t answer. In retrospect, we should have booked a tour with Maria immediately after arriving. At the end of the tour she took a family photo of us at the harbour, and sent it to us in an email along with some of the bullet points of the island’s history and highlights of the tour – a very nice touch! The tour provided us with a different appreciation for this unique and beautiful place. We will definitely be coming back, and we hope to meet Maria again when we do!
We spent two days in beautiful Hydra in June and had the pleasure of meeting Maria. We found her rich knowledge of Hydra’s history fascinating! She is very sweet and knowledgeable, with a passion about her lovely island.
Thank you Maria for sharing your passion for your home island.
Visiting Hydra with you was truly enjoyable and insightful. You are both very knowledgeable and passionate and the nearly two hours we spent with your flew too fast.
You also realized the challenge to keep out 12yo. son interested during the whole tour.
I’m warmly recommending your tour to anybody who doesn’t want to miss the best of Hydra.
Guide and tour are highly recommendable. We spent an hour and a half walking around Hydra port + vicinity and learning a lot about its history. THANKS TO MARIA for this entertaining and instructive experience.
Maria will give you, she will also suggest the best places where to eat and drink.
I totally suggest anyone taking this tour and I can’t wait to be back in Hydra to take another one with Maria!
