We had this tour under a rainy weather, but even that didnot spoil the expectations and impression. Our guide Nepheli was very knowledgeable, supportive and enthusiastic. We really appreciated her best guiding to create a wonderful atmosphere during the trip.

Our driver and guide,...

Our driver and guide, Lazaros, was an a guide who a traveller could not have asked more of. Not only is he knowledgeable about the history of Greece, and Greek culture/philosophy, he also has a wealth of personal experience to share. A genuinely interestingamd down-to-earth person. As for the trip, Lazaros was always taking care of every one of us depending on our needs. We were shown amazing spots at the mountain and he never hesitated to answer any questions. It's a fantastic trip in itself, but if you happen to have Lazaros as your guide, you've won the lottery!
Response from Host, Jan 2022

Kindest Regards, Mary Polatidou

This day trip was truly wonderful, the guides Lazaros and Elena were so welcoming, funny and interesting ! The curriculum is rich yet we had time to experience everything properly. I could not recommend this short journey enough considering how worth it it is, given the impressive landscapes and archeological details.

Mount Olympus was amazing 👏. Our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable of the historical sights.
Beautiful day trip
Eduardo_P, Jun 2021
We took this trip with our older children and 18 year old. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful scenery and abundance of information Yannis shares on the drive to Dion. He answered all questions and had a lot of knowledge. The Mt Olympus hike to a spectacular waterfall was so refreshing. There was a lot to see in Dion but we had plenty of time and never felt rushed. Would book again and highly recommend.
Space to ‘be’ at beautiful Mount Olympus
Kevin_N, Oct 2020
A really excellent and worthwhile day. Dimitri was a superb guide. Efficient whilst ensuring the day was a relaxing experience. A good mix of things to see and do and time to ‘be’ at this beautiful mountain. Thought provoking commentary - and not overdone. I thoroughly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Oct 2020
Dear Kevin thanks a lot for your review! Mt. Olympus is indeed the "place to be" for someone visiting Greece in order to feel its legendary vibes, walk along the enchanting forest and discover those sensational waterfalls :) It's one of Dimitri's most inspiring destinations and we are happy that he transmits this feeling to our travelers as well! We hope to see you again either in Thessaloniki or Athens!
