We understand the frustrations, stress and time management issues particular to this type of travel and we are very aware of how hospitality can enhance business relationships and even bring positive business results.

Reviews

From the 8th of December 2014 to the 7th of January 2015, our company did a market reconnaissance visit to Greece in order to assess opportunities to enter the Greek market for our services. We employed the agency Fly Me To The Moon in Athens to arrange the whole of the journey: Domestic travel, accommodation and entertainment...

Jörg Ökonomou, Managing Director - Stat Control GmbH

Everything was superbly organised. A truly personal service with hand-picked hotels, excellent guides and great recommendations. All we had to to was relax and enjoy an area of Greece we would never have discovered without the help of FLY ME TO THE MOON.

Piers Nestler

FLY ME TO THE MOON proved an impeccable host for our business guests who visited Athens in June 2014. From the start, the company took a personal interest in meeting our guests' needs and desires. They put together a very interesting program of visits for them, both in Athens and its vicinity that was original and gracefully executed. All in all, FLY ME TO THE MOON managed to convey the "spirit of Greece" while taking care of the smallest detail. This combination of professionalism and inspiration makes the company unique and valuable to every demanding visitor to Greece.

Dimitris Keridis, The Constantine G. Karamanlis Foundation, Filothei, Athens, Greece

Fly Me To The Moon" was terrific! I enjoyed a personalized tour that allowed for a relaxing, informative visit. Elena was a joy to be around, and she tailored my visit perfectly. I would highly recommend "Fly Me To The Moon" for visitors looking for personalized touring of Greece by someone who really knows Greece!!

Laura Stavridis, 2014 Boston

I visited Athens, Greece on business and I assigned my trip to FMTM. I had nothing to worry about but my business itself! Everything was well planned. The people were kind and hospitable; the choice of hotel, restaurants excellent and the special arrangements like transfers, shopping and site seeing, were imaginative and original.

Patrick Malone, New York

We wanted to see the region of Thessaloniki from a local's point of view. We wanted to learn about all this awesome Byzantine history without losing out on the fun. FMTM prepared an ideal sojourn for us, filled with dinners in excellent local tavernas in the historic center, visits to churches dating from the 5th century and excursions to the seaside of Halkidiki! Absolutely try the Athonos square!

Anika Elen Zimmermann, Austria

Indeed a trip to the moon! We had our dreams realized in this country of wonders. Excellent organization, personalized services and highly knowledgeable and welcoming hosts.

R. Gupta, India

Elena's service was so far above and beyond anything we could have hoped for - we felt so taken care of, she was so accessible at any time of day or night and so conscientious, called to double check on us at every location and activity to ensure smooth sailing and that we had everything we needed. we are so thankful and feel so lucky to have met her and ABSOLUTELY we will be booking many future trips with her as will our family and friends!!!!!!

Amy Bloomgarden, June 2015

Elena Papanicolaou and her company, Fly Me To The Moon Travel are by far the most knowledgeable and professional team I have ever used when planning a trip. Elena is an expert at luxurious yet educational experiences and has an eye for creating excursions that are absolutely unforgettable. It is clear that the team at Fly Me To The Moon Travel has experienced everything they suggest, fine dining, sailing excursions, wine tours, beaches, boutiques, hotels and more- they have really done all the research so that each trip is special in its own way and not at all “touristy”. Anytime I can use Elena and her team to plan a trip for my family, I will.

Sara Andreasson, July 2015

Elena came to my rescue when I needed to do some major last minute changes to our summer travels. She figured out the best way to get us from and to some remote locations but most of all quickly understood that the trip we planned wasn’t right for us and helped us dramatically re-configure ALL of the trip. What we ended up with was much more our style, much more real and full of wonderful people, food and places. She understood what we wanted and needed from our trip and had ideas at her fingertips that were perfect solutions.

Elena has a big heart, a sense of humor and the insight to understand the needs of her clients. Combine that with her encyclopedic knowledge of Greece and you have a not just a travel planner and concierge but a friend who’s there for you when you need help. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and look forward to exploring more of what Greece has to offer.

Aron Warner, August 2015

Elena Papanicolaou

CEO, Fly Me To The Moon

elena-p

Born in Athens from multicultural expat Greek parents from Alexandria, Egypt, Elena Papanicolaou embraces the culture and tradition of her beloved home country, focusing on the evolution of refined travel experiences. She founded Fly Me To The Moon in early 2014. A passionate globetrotter with an eye for style, culture and refined authenticities, Elena aims to provide inspiring environments and a true, insider’s view for today’s modern traveler. After a very intensive corporate career in consumer electronics, retail, shipping, and financial consulting, Elena spent the past 15 years as managing director of a company focusing on chemical plastics sector. This position entitled her to extensive global travel, where she gleaned a plethora of information on the needs of busy, demanding executives, as she herself was an extremely demanding traveler, always searching for authenticity, quality and style throughout her business travels. It was time for Elena to make a change. Her vision now is to introduce business and leisure travelers to Greece; to harness the beauty, tradition, culture, and style while still embracing a truly local authenticity. She has traveled the country from north to south and everywhere in between, always ahead of the trend in accommodations, gastronomy, along with a keen eye for history and customs. Elena studied economics at the University College London (University of London) and received an MSc in Information Science from City University. She currently resides in Athens.
