Space to ‘be’ at beautiful Mount Olympus
Kevin_N
, Oct 2020
A really excellent and worthwhile day. Dimitri was a superb guide. Efficient whilst ensuring the day was a relaxing experience. A good mix of things to see and do and time to ‘be’ at this beautiful mountain. Thought provoking commentary - and not overdone. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

Dear Kevin thanks a lot for your review! Mt. Olympus is indeed the "place to be" for someone visiting Greece in order to feel its legendary vibes, walk along the enchanting forest and discover those sensational waterfalls :) It's one of Dimitri's most inspiring destinations and we are happy that he transmits this feeling to our travelers as well! We hope to see you again either in Thessaloniki or Athens!

Viator, Ammon Express did not provide a professional guide for this tour. I had paid for transport and guide, had received a booking confirmation from a lady called Photini, who was meant to be the guide, and instead, the minibus driver played the guide.

Dear Iulia thank you for sending us your review! All our excursions include trip-attendant archaeologists and when the activity is realized with a mini-van for a more VIP experience, our trip-attendant is the driver as well providing our high-quality service! We will be happy to see you in the future! Best regards, AMMON EXPRESS Team

We were a group of five people. George was our guide/driver and gave us both the current and historical perspective of the area. It was our pleasure to have George as our guide to Dion and Mt. Olympus.

George, the tour attendant, was very knowledgeable, friendly and giving us lots of tips during the tour on what to look for and why. He also gave us ample time to explore. Overall was a good day trip, good group size of 7, and very insightful to see the Dion's ruin and its glory. The walk and condition of the Enapeas gorge was bit disappointing, not much water/ snow so gorge was kind of dry. But was still a beautiful mountain view

Dion is a magical place. Set against the backdrop of Mount Olympus, its shrines and temples were much favoured by the ancient Macedonians. I particularly enjoyed the shrine of Isis, which is set in a watery grove, a little off the beaten track.
