Hey guys, I'm a freelance photographer, tour-guide and the founder of a salsa community group. Love bringing people together and having fun. I have been on Paros and Greece for over 5 years where I met Simos, a photographer and physics teacher, who will be leading the tour. Simos lived on Paros most of his life and has an intensely deep knowledge of the surroundings and history of the island. On top of that, he is also a photographer and has some of the best jokes.
