What an exquisite day. I was the only passenger on the tour and upon arriving in Katerini I was a bit worried as the train station appears to be very rundown. Monika met me there and away we went. Because I was the only passenger Monika offered some different options for our time together and tailored it completely to me - ending off with a drop off at my hotel and a coffee together. Spending the day with Monika was more like spending time with a friend than feeling I was on a tour. Thank you Monika!

It was a very nice hike, but very long and the pass was firmly in the guide. He was very friendly, his name is George and he is a man of 63. We were picked up at the hotel and taken to the destination where we could start the walking tour.

It was a very great and dedicated tour with many wonderful impressions of the mountains. However, you shouldn't be completely unfit. Highly Recommended!

Wonderful hike, but quite exhausting in midsummer due to the heat. Great "care" from the very competent mountain guide.
