A few words about me by others…
IOANNIS AGAPAKIS – GENERAL MANAGER, IKAROS TRAVEL
Miss Joanna Glypti has worked for our company as a licensed tour guide for English language groups for the past six years.
Miss Glypti has always shown a very responsible attitude to her duties. Her time keeping is excellent and she has proved very trustworthy.
She is an outstanding guide with exceptionally good knowledge of her subject and is very popular with the guests of the companies we represent. I would recommend her without hesitation for similar position elsewhere.
DR ANTONIS VASILAKIS – ARCHEOLOGIST
With the present letter I verify that Ms. Joanna Calypso Glypti, English language guide, attended with particular diligence, the course in prehistoric and Minoan Archeology that i taught during the academic year 1989-1990 at the EOT Local Guide College in Rethymno.
As a professional guide she continues to seek information, always with great interest, about the most recent findings and the deduction of Greek archeology, particularly those of Crete, where she practices the profession with great success.
CLEMENS SCHMIDLIN – ARCHEOLOGIST
On Saturday July 14th I had the great pleasure to take part in a guided tour of Joanna Kalypso Glyptis to Phaistos, Matala, Spili.
As an Archeologist I was delighted to see that Mrs. Glyptis did not paint the usual stereotyped image of “the ancients believed” and “the archeologists say” but instead – without provoking boredom in any moment – confronted the audience with her highly differentiated and reasonable skeptic view on our archeological knowledge. I would like to point out that a presentation like she is able to provide for tourist is only possible after long sincere and intelligent studies.
With my kind Regards

It is my pleasure to recommend Joanna Kalypso Glyptis to you. I have the highest regard for Joanna’s intellect and work ethic. She is a person possessing a vast archaeological, artistic and historical knowledge about Greece and the surrounding countries, and a character that is highly personable.
I first met Joanna a year ago during a tour at archaeological sites on Crete. My work as a journalist for an international news agency has taken me to several countries but this was the first time that I came across someone who not only possessed so much in-depth knowledge, but also a unique way of conveying vast amounts of historical information on a personal level that made it more appealing and easy to understand. That, combined with a strong work ethic and a character that is people’s-friendly, allows her to stand out in her profession.
Later I found out that she was also teaching part-time at the university in Rethymno, which instantly became clear to me that she was more of a scholar experimenting on a different field that just an ordinary tour guide.
I would highly recommend Joanna
MARY JONES – PHILADELPHIA
Oh, Joanna! I am so glad to find you finally here! I’d lost the card you gave us so couldn’t write a feedback about an amazing Knossos tour we had done with you!
After the cruise we had last year think to visit Greece again for long stay. And these thoughts bring us back to you and the impression we had from the tour by you.
After a crowd loud disembarkation in Heraklion we suddenly found ourselves in guided calmness of your bus. And that was a great start! History, myths, modern social life were so miraculously and logically certain so we couldn’t imagine it that much related. Your care and friendliness, breadth of mind and desire to share fascinated us!
Thank you, Joanna! And will see you again this year!
KOSTAS DIMAKIS – VIDEO DIRECTOR-EDITOR
The most amazing historical visualization
Im a video director-editor and I was very lucky to cooperate with Ioanna Kalypso Glypti for a documentary about Crete which is in progress. It’s amazing how Ioanna can incorporate so much information in a small amount of time transmitting impressive visualizations alongside, making the audience senses the whole story. It was a very constructive experience for me! Thank you Ioanna!!!
