Amazing site. Helped but me in touch with Babis Marinidis. Fantastic mountain guide, super helpful and attentive to needs. Made my climbing of Mt. Olympus so much fun. Could not recommend Explore-share or Babis more!

The trip up Mt Olympus was even better than we imagined it would be, and that was partly due to Babis being a great guide. He knows the mountain so well, it's almost as if he built it.

Our whole experience was top notch and a once in a lifetime adventure. Everything went very smooth from booking to the big hike. Even when we wanted to change dates, last minute, because of weather Babis was very professional and flexible. He did everything to accommodate our needs. As a guide he was very knowledgeable and professional. We had a wonderful experience and can highly recommend Explore-Share, and specially Babis as your guide for your Mount Olympus adventure. Thanks for a great trip. Anette & Anders living on S/V Horizon
