My name is Gay Cocheres. I am so excited to become your experienced travel concierge specializing in the areas of food, wine and culture travel throughout all of Greece and Italy. I can plan your next private tour be that as a single, couple, family, or a small group of ten. Whatever your heart's desire, at Travel Lifestyle Concierges, we offer Culture, History and Culinary & Wine Tours - let me be your specialized travel concierge when planning your travel adventure to Greece and Italy.

Why? Because I love to travel and can't wait to share my European Culture experiences with you. I have been traveling to Greece and Italy for the past 25 plus years. Greece is my all time favorite country with Italy a running second.

While in Greece I have explored the northern regions including the cities of Thessaloniki, Phillipi, and Kalamaria. The central part of Greece is famous for the great monasteries of Meteora built upon the tallest cliffs you will ever see.  And of course one must not forget to explore the southern city of Athens with its famous Plaka -market, and the spectacular Parthenon ruins on the Acropolis. But my all time favorite regions of Greece are the Greek Islands; Crete, Santorini, Mykonos, Kos, and of course Rhodes. I have had the pleasure of leading several small groups of 6 - 10 people to Greece these past few year years. While in Greece, we explore the culture, the people and of course the wonderful food fresh from the land and sea while on these private tours.

My experience in Italy comes through personal and group adventures in Florence, Venice, Rome, the Amalfi Coast and the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany traveling with a private guide through towns of Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca and Arezzo. When I wander the streets and back alley ways of Italy, I feel as if I have entered into the Old European World of discovery through art, history, culinary desires and Italian wines. As a former caterer I love to visit the local village markets of Italy in which farmers bring their plethora of fresh produce, meats, dairy, cheeses, breads and even a few arts and crafts like pottery, textiles and baskets. Again, I like to plan and lead private group travel excursions to take in all aspects of what Italy has to offer, be that museums, cooking classes, wine tasting, relaxation in a private villa of Tuscany, fine dining, or shopping until you drop in the cities of Rome and Florence.

So, whether you need an expert in Greece or Italy, it would be my honor and pleasure to assist in planning your best trip of a lifetime experience! I will be your personal concierge, making all your specialized hotel, flight, tours and if needed, rental car arrangements for your next vacation adventure. At Travel Lifestyle Concierges our motto is Big or Small We Can Do It All! Call or email today, let me work for you, and I commit to give you my very best endeavor at fulfilling all your Greek and Italian travel dreams and desires!

The time of our lives!
Gay litteraly took care of everything from small things on the computer that I didn't know how to do, all the way up to the to the big things, beginning to end. We would never even attempted to go if it was not for Gay and this service. We would've had to pass up the opportunity to travel all together. Definitely will be using this service again!!

Wine and Cooking Tour
I recently went with Gay on a Wine and Cooking Tour in Greece. Our fees paid for meals, travel between Islands, hotels, Villa and other kinds of events. The trip was fantastic. After purchasing my airline ticket, all I had to do was pack and show up. Gay's company took care of all the arrangements. We had a diverse tour of Greece, ate many kinds of food, toured historical and archaeological sites as well as winery's, farms and bakeries. If wine and cooking is your thing, I highly recommend this trip.
