What people are saying about Rock Climbing | Athens



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.



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


Dimitris is the best! Multi-crag climb with music and guide book authors provided at no charge!



Dimitri was amazing! He was an amazing guide and a great coach for the day as well. He even brought along two other local climbing friends so we could do and experience more. You could tell he was well respected in the area, as other climbers were quick to say hello to him and to give us good information. All in all, it was worth every penny and more. I will definitely hire him again when I travel.



Best climbing experience I’ve ever had! Dimitris was so helpful and instructive. We had multiple inexperienced climbers in our group yet he was still able to make them feel secure and comfortable. The mountain he took us to was beautiful and the routes were easy to navigate for all levels. His vast knowledge of climbing was very evident which he communicated very gracefully to our group. He also shared much of the history of the area and Penteli mountain. His encouragement inspired our group members to continue climbing back home. If you’re looking for a wholesome inclusive experience, look no further!
