Meet the travel guides Greek Australian star Dorian
Australian Greek Dorian’s adventure began in 2017 as he and his friends scoured Facebook, noticing an ad calling for auditions for a new Travel Show.
Hoping to be able to travel for free, they made an audition tape, not really expecting to hear anything in return.
Two or three days later the trio were contacted and the rest is history.
For the 22-year-old, who had never traveled to Australia except to Queensland, it was a dream come true.
Three years later, as part of the show, Dorian has traveled to over 30 countries, claiming that he feels “so lucky” to have had this opportunity to be able to visit “so many places that you don’t. haven’t even realized they’re on your bucket list.

The family hadn’t been able to return to Greece for a few years and were so happy to hear that one of the Travel Guides episodes would take Dorian back to their homeland – with his Yiayia admitting that “I cried a little”.
Tonight, in true Greek style, the family arranged for a massive rally so they could watch the episode set in Greece at 7:30 p.m. all together, with Kev and Teng also joining in the festivities.
Speaking of his time in Greece, Dorian admits that he immediately fell in love when landing at Athens airport, claiming it was his first real taste of Greece.
âThe people were so nice, so friendly, the water was so blue,â he marvels.
âNot to mention the best souvlakis in the world!â
Of the travel guides, Dorian says the way the show is put together is really great, showing all aspects of the trip from the varied and diverse perspectives of the different groups featured in the show.

TRAVEL GUIDES SEASON 5, EPISODE 1 – GREECE, BROADCAST THIS EVENING AT 7:30 PM on NINE
In Episode 1 of the return of the series, our travel guides set off on a Greek island hopping vacation. Departing from the ancient capital, Athens, they board the ferry to the festive island of Mykonos and the traditional island of Milos.
Greece is everything they ever imagined: beautiful islands, turquoise waters, sensational souvlaki and endless parties. But will an island hopping vacation through the cradle of Western civilization be too hectic to handle?
For starters, our travel guides discover the historic sites of Athens, from the huge and imposing Parthenon to the original Olympic Stadium. Putting their own spin on history, they tackle a few Olympic records, with varying levels of success.
Leaving the chaos of Athens behind, they board the gigantic ferry that takes tourists around the beautiful Aegean Islands. This time it’s express to Mykonos, the former fishing island that has become an international party destination. The Guides savor delicious Greek cuisine and try to keep up with the world’s most beautiful influencers at the Super Paradise Beach Club. Some of our guides rise to the challenge while others are left in ruins.
Back on the ferry, our travelers yearn for more stable shores. The best kept secret of the Greek islands awaits them in Milos, where white volcanic cliffs curve like marble into a dazzling blue sea. Directly on the shore, their accommodation is made up of fishing huts converted into spectacular waterfront excavations.
But there is no time to relax. The party followed our guides to this traditional paradise. It’s one of the biggest festival days of the year and the whole island has come together to celebrate with bells. Literally. In addition to the bells, there is food, wine, and lots of dancing. Even our most reluctant visitors have to admit – no one celebrates like the Greeks.
Will an island hopping week in Greece be the ultimate travel guide experience?
Watch this episode tonight at 7:30 p.m. to see how they rate their vacation over five stars.
