Very pleasant trip, walking was fine albeit rather more leisurely than I anticipated, food was excellent and the tour leader exceptional.
Our tour leader, he was an expert in Greek History, the island of Evia, Athens - in fact pretty much everything.
Brilliant - see above comment, also, he visited the locally bakery twice a day and carried 12 pastries up the mountain every day for our first stop, also provided pastries for everyone after our evening meal.
The walking is not difficult.
I personally found the walking a bit too leisurely, but, this was my first Exodus walking trip, so, probably this was more down to me. The local restaurants, a different one each evening were excellent, breakfast was good, and unusually, even the packed lunches were tasty. Hotel very pleasant with a lovely view from the balcony.
A great trip to an unknown part of Greece. Most of the walking is easy so the grading is about right, but be aware that some of the paths are through very prickly vegetation so have an alternative to shorts. All but the last night is based in the Hotel Galaxy in Karystos, which is run be a very nice local family and has a wonderful location on the waterfront on short distance from numerous bars and restaurants.
Seeing the Roman columns still in situ on Mount Ochi.
Thanos is very enthusiastic, seems to know everybody and runs the trip very efficiently.
I personally would have preferred to spent the final day on Evia and not gone to Athens.
Another excellent holiday with Exodus. Enjoyable walks, just the right length for me, pleasant company, lovely range of vegetarian food available in the restaurants. Hotel in a convenient position on the water front, sea views beautiful. Relaxed, substantial breakfast with local produce. Karystos felt safe to walk around at night. Brochure description accurate. Good value.
Evia's history and The Acropolis / Acropolis Museum visit would be the most inspirational, while the walks on Evia were a source of peaceful pleasure. The short visit to Athens is a great addition to the walking holiday.
Thanos was very good at his job; friendly, helpful, enthusiastic and very knowledgable about the area, its history and inhabitants. He took us to six different restaurants and various eateries/cafés on our walks. He also spoilt us with local delicacies for elevenses, all delicious.
Decent boots and long trousers a must for the gorge walk. Some found poles useful.
We were driven to some elevated starting points so not too much uphill walking, which I appreciated.
