I went for a day hike to Parnitha. It rained heavily that day so we didn't get to hike much. But Archelaos who was my guide was excellent company. I can see his passion for the outdoors. Not only is he knowledgeable on the fauna and flora of Parnitha but host of other things such as life in Athens. I... More

It was really cool being picked up by my guide and riding the streets of Athens then watching as the landscape goes from city to mountains in a matter of a half hour ride. The guide spoke english very well and was very knowledgeable... More

Since I was the only guest, Christos offered to take me through a longer path than they usually take. I am happy he did, since the views on that path... More

We were met by our guides at the cable car in Parnitha and taken to the mountain refuge for hot tea to fortify us. On the way we passed the park of souls where we saw some wonderful carved trees and a number of quite tame deer. The scenery was breath taking and the views were fantastic. We were driven... More

I contacted them via email (check their website) ahead of time and booked a solo rock climbing experience. The two ladies I had were very friendly and sweet to me. Even though I had never done it before and was a little nervous, they were encouraging and I felt completely safe in their hands. I had the best time with... More

Guided trek well-planned with attention to detail at every step (literally!) from timing to safety aspects. Two professional guides split the trekking group into two teams. Walking at an even pace, with regular breaks and care taken to help walkers over obstacles. Guides provided short talks on points of natural interest throughout the walk. Snack provided at midway point and... More
