Overview

Let’s explore two of the most important countryside sites of Greece!

Meteora and Delphi are definitely the most popular places to see in Greece. But we have a lot more to see and experience on this trip!

It’s not just archeological and historical interest. It is also the view and magical landscapes of a large part of Greece. But most of all, the myths and their teachings.

This is the different and strange privilege of Greece. While all over the world the mountains are just mountains, the springs are simple springs, the rivers are just rivers, here in Greece these places are the places of myths and the beginnings of today’s culture all over the world.

I think it is wonderful to fill images and emotions! For us that will be the goal!

Is it necessary to hire Guides/trekking agency for Annapurna Base Camp trekking?

Not really. It depends on you. If you want, ABC trekking can be done independently. You could hire a guide and a porter by yourself instead of going through an agency or not hire a guide at all. Although, not having a guide can be a little problematic during the offseason.

It really depends on you. Is it your first time in Nepal? How confident are you of being able to find your way around? How pressed on time are you? If you go through an agency, it will be costlier but everything will be planned. You will only have to come, trek and return.
