Smaro Touloupa is quite simply an extraordinary teacher. The breadth and depth of her knowledge is truly stunning—from history to art and music to food and culture. Her passion for Greece and these islands in particular makes her presentation all the more compelling. I will look forward to more presentations from this gifted scholar and guide.
Smaro Touloupa was a marvelous engaging presenter. My hope is that I can travel to Mykonos and have her as my guide! Love how Smaro weaved mythology, geography, history, and architecture in this presentation. I want Smaro to travel to other islands and tell us more! Enjoyed learning about the 50's and 60's fashion designers and celebrities that came to Mykonos and made the island famous! Love the story of Peter the Pelican as well! small stories like this one along with historic information made the presention very lively.
Engaging, dense, passionate, fluid...I fell in love with Mykonos and Delos! Smaro's talent is exceptional, she is a guide in the truest sense!
This is my second "travel" with Smaro, this time to Mykonos and the magnificent Delos. Though I have visited both recently, Smaro's expert guided virtual tour that wove myths, legends, vampires and pirates, that juxtaposed the profane with the sublime in a place that is both sacred because of Delos and at the same time profoundly earthy like Mykonos. One of the best 1.5 hours of my life this past year when Covid has made travel impossible: one can travel through expanding our minds.
