The Company

Company History:
Our company, El Greco was set up in 1979 in Chania, Crete by Mr. Evangelos Margiolakis. Its first business was hotel and a car hire company. Having clients from all over Europe and Middle East and Canada with various needs, the company, managed to differentiate itself from the others by fulfilling these various and different needs. Later, with the help of his son Markos Margiolakis, El Greco Tours managed to develop into a very successful tourism organisation in Greece, with travel agencies, hotel and car hire wholesaling deals, as well as incentives and conferences. Mr Christos Vasileiou is our sales and operation manager with highly experience in the hospitality industry and great skills in managing any kind of emergencies.
From 1st of January 2015 El Greco has been transformed to a group of companies since by merging with Polyctor Tours. These merge have made our company an independent travel organisation in Greece with branches and departments in Crete, Greece mainland, Aegean, Ionian and Athens.
Mr. Kostopoulos former Polyctor Travel managing director is our Ionian islands director. Thus, we have now a team that cannot only cover all aspects of the tour operating business but also to consult, customize and create “alla carte” programs according to the needs of the tour operator, specialist, choosing to trust our reliable services.

In general, our philosophy is not to do “a bit of everything” but to be efficient, reliable, responsible and flexible in every way by making use of our various departments` individual character, combined with the whole company's infrastructure and whole-buyers purchasing power.
We are not afraid to invest in new markets and open new destinations, by providing special support to our partners. It's not by luck that our company has been the first one to organize, actively support and serve the 'virgin” charter operations to Syvota, Thesprotias and Kythira island.

Mission Statement:
Quality, safety and consistent pursuit of excellence in everything we do. This has built an outstanding reputation for "top value for money" products and quality services, provided by an experienced team of travel professionals.
So the success of our strategy requires us to build on these foundations by focusing on the business and leisure markets and driving efficiency and effectiveness.
