What a wonderful day! Lazaros (our former Olympic alpine skier and now guide!) was full of knowledge and enthusiasm. I very much appreciated him showing us the summit of Mt Olympus peeking up above the clouds on the drive over as the view is not always guaranteed. We walked quickly through the archaelogical site of Dion to fit it into our allocated hour and 45 minutes but still struggled to see everything but this did not take away from our great experience. Straight up to Mt Olympus and the views were breathtaking (shame we weren't able to have a quick photo stop for this). After visiting Agios Dionysios monastery, we walked at a fair pace through the Enipeas gorge, with two beautiful photo stops, working up an appetite for lunch in Litochora. Lazaros made several good suggestions for food and we had the opportunity to have a quick walk around Litochora afterwards. All in all an excellent tour and a great day out. Thank you Lazaros!
It was a very interesting and very enjoyable day. The sights we saw left a lasting impression. My Olympus is a strikingly mountain to view. The mythological history is fascinating. Our guide/historian was excellent. She was full of enthusiasm and made us feel the same way.
Fascinating, great guide (former flight attendant, outstanding stories), fun (and very small) group, new minibus, for really an unbelievable price.
Very interesting, cool and well organized trip. The guide was very interesting and fun. Worth it!
A bit quick but a great experience with a listening guide!
