Michael's excursion is the perfect blend of professionalism and personalization! We had a structured agenda that was tailored towards my interest around Mt. Olympus. I'm confident that Michael's trip is the only way to experience several locations of Mt. Olympus all within a 5-hour window. Michael is a great storyteller and he does a wonderful job recreating history, mythology and traditions throughout the trip. I would rate this trip 5/5 stars - highly recommend if visiting Thessaloniki!

Beautiful experience. Michael took it upon himself to make it a truly personal experience, with some lovely locations and super willing to be your personal photographer too (which is a bonus when travelling solo). I would suggest paying attention to the forecast because even though the rain was quite unique and it ended up clearing up for the canyon part of the tour, I left without a memorable momento of the actual mountain (as a whole) as it was cast in clouds. This absolutely can’t be helped and was still a lovely day. Stick to your instincts when it comes to places you want to photograph (this is often why you want the convenience of an air bnb experience instead of a coach tour). Especially ask to stop on the first leg of the tour as you approach the foothills which is the only really great opportunity to get a shot where the mountain isn’t too far away for an amateur lens or too close to look like an alpine landscape found anywhere. A shame for me, but just a great excuse to return. Highly recommend Michael for someone who knows the area well as a local, knows good food and is flexible and more importantly a very kind and courteous tour guide!

Super expérience avec Michael, nous n’étions seulement lui et moi (Peu de touristes en raison du COVID) sommes allé à Meteora et le mont Olympe. Très amical et il connaît pleins d’histoire sur la mythologie. Nous ne nous sommes pas ennuyer du début à la fin (10h). Je recommande l’expérience, n’hésitez pas à lui demander des conseils, ou de vous arrêtez pour pendre des photos, il le fera avec plaisir. Pensez à prendre quelques choses pour vous couvrir les jambes si vous allez au monastères, certains le demande. Détendez vous et profitez de l’instant présent.

Michael was great! He even took us to a dive location not listed anywhere in Thessaloniki so we could experience a dive in Greece!

Michael is an expert tour guide and a true gentleman. From the very start, I was treated to a personal experience and nothing was too much trouble. As a solo traveller, I was a little worried that nobody would be able to show me the sights without having to pay extortionate costs. Michael was so very accommodating and picked me up in his car as if I was a friend. He even came to a different pickup location when I accidently went to the wrong place. From the very start, Michael told me about the experience and how it was going to be tailored to me specifically. Then he told me stories about the greek gods. We stopped for coffee in a small village outside Olympus and then I was taken to two different locations on the mountain and told of the significance of the various 12 gods. At the second location, I was taken to see some incredible sights and to drink from the spring. This extra-special and I left feeling a true connection to the gods and Olympus. Michael shared his personal connection with the place and even helped me to take some incredible photographs! A must do with a group of friends or even if you just fancy getting out of the city and doing something different!
