What people are saying about Rock Climbing | Greece



Dimitris is nice and kind person, and also experienced guide. I had a nice time!



We had a great time with Dimitris. He picked us up from our campground and took us to these private and picturesque cliffs on the shore. He’s a great instructor, very positive and encouraging. I am a beginner and he had me quickly going up the easier routes. My daughter is more experienced and he was able to have her go up routes that challenged her. Fun for both of us.



Dimitris has significant experience and knowledge in climbing and makes the whole climbing experience safe, fun in a friendly manner. I would recommend Dimitris to enjoy a Rock Climbing excursion



Best day of climbing. Very skillful guide who did everything is his power to give us the best day we could, and he succeeded with flying colors. It was really hot the day we were going to climb, Dimitris found us a spot in the shade for a full day of climbing. Afterwards went for a beer and a bite town.



Very nice and very profesional guide.
