Pick-up service, good hiking & good humor! And Dimitris also remembered to send us the photos he took, even though he was just going away. What else could one hope for? We are hoping to use his services again :)



Dimitris was the best! Great communication and flexibility. And we had an awesome hike tailored to our requests. Loved it!



The hike to Mount Parnitha was amazing! If you like nature and you want to get away from busy Athens for a little, this is the best activity. It’s an easy hike and there are plenty of shades.
