What an amazing trip. It was truly an experience I will never forget and always cherish. The whole trip went exactly according to the itinerary. Stavros is not only very professional but also a wonderful person to spend time with. I had never climbed a mountain before and Stavros made me feel very safe and his instructions were always clear and to the point. I learned a lot from the experience and will without a doubt do it again. Mt Olympus is simply sublime. It is a challenge to make it to Mytikas but with Stavros' guidance it is attainable and well worth the sore legs after. Thank you so much!!!!
Best experience - Stavros was detailed, set expectations, and provided a lot of support. Thank you!
Stavros was amazing! We are so thankful that he was our guide. He knew exactly what to say and do in every situation. He calmed us down when we were anxious/scared, encouraged us through every step and instructed us to the summit. He was great company and an exceptional guide!
The trip was amazing and Stavros Chasapidis was very knowledgeable and a good guide. He was extremely responsive over whatsapp and answered questions I had months in advance of the trip. Explore-Share's website was complicated to navigate and it was tricky to find trip information.
Stavros is a very safety conscious guide. We hiked on a day with very strong winds and snow on the trail. Stavros ensured that we were safe throughout.
