ABOUT US

BlissTravel was created to provide peace of mind to Agents & Travellers
by delivering an upscale & authentic experience of the destination.

We achieve this by establishing a strong connection with our partners and by having knowledge of the best products and services in the destination.

We avoid the ‘usual’ and that is why we don’t offer pre-made packages but we create itineraries from scratch, customize them and personalize them according to the guests’ tastes and dreams.

We value sustainability and thus we support the local markets and collaborate exclusively with
boutique properties and services.

Our goal is for our guests to have a Blissful Experience

Nelly Hatzopoulou

Hi, my name is Nelly and I am passionate about travel.  In fact, all the major decisions in my life, have been influenced by this passion. I have lived, worked, and travelled abroad extensively, and for the sole reason of fulfilling a dream that began in childhood; to discover different cultures and meet new people. My philosophy? In order to get to truly know a culture, you need to get to know its people and experience their daily life away from the crowds. I feel that this privilege should be accessible to everyone that craves it. In this day and age with so many alternatives to fit all pockets, everyone should be entitled to reach their dream destination.
