- MorganWritten on May 18, 20175.0 - ExcellentTrails Beyond went above and beyond to make the most memorable trip to Greece for my Mom and I. From the lovely accommodations, to the daily activities, to the planned meals... everything was so well thought through. Every day was memorable and would have never been able to explore this mountain region of Greece without the guidance of Denae. The villages were incredibly picturesque, the hikes beautiful and interesting, as well as Greece's cultural daily life we learned along the way. Not to be missed. Can't thank Stavros and Denae enough for a great week together, we didn't want them to leave us!Show detailed ratings
- IngridWritten on November 26, 20165.0 - ExcellentDanae was exceptional from my first enquiry through to the last moment of our tour and even follow up emails with pictures taken on our tour. Our time with Danae and Stavros felt like a week spent with two best friends that were locals to the area. Nothing was too much trouble, they happily accommodated our needs and answered our thousands of questions. Expert driving from town to town, meals and wine shared at beautiful locations, guidance of trails and villages was detailed and shared with genuine sincerity. Every moment, every day with Trails Beyond was exciting, fulfilling and vistas to inspire even the well travelled tourist. It was sad to leave our time with this pair and end our week of walk visiting off the beaten track places. Trails Beyond the best tour organiser in Greece!Show detailed ratings
- ISIngridWritten on August 17, 20165.0 - ExcellentAs off the beaten track explorers our expectations were high and met, even exceeded in many areas! Danae and Stavros spent the week driving us and sharing many authentic experiences throughout the mountains always smiling and sharing valuable tips. From daily hiking to amazing places (my favourite being the stone bridges day), to meals shared at quiet hotels, drinks in local pubs, rafting on the Papigo River and horse riding through the fir forest, every day was filled with adventure and smiles. Nothing was too much for this pair, sharing sunglasses when mine were broken, adapting walks to suit fitness, tiredness or over enthusiasm to watch a sunrise. Accomodation was always very comfortable in small locally run hotels where we had a chance to chat with the owners and experience local food cooked especially for us, even my husbands difficult dietary requirements were catered for. Stavros was forever ready with his camera snapping amazing shots featuring us that we would not be able to capture. From pickup on day one to drop off on conclusion nothing was too much trouble for these fantastic guides and it was sad to say goodbye. I would recommend Trails Beyond if you are looking for an authentic adventure with plenty of activity. Thankyou Danae and Stavros for our week with you, a highlight of our 8 weeks in Europe!Show detailed ratingsTrails Beyond commented on this reviewDear Ingrid, thank you for your really wonderful words!

- RHRobertWritten on May 5, 20165.0 - ExcellentI can't recommend this tour and Trails Beyond enough. The Greek mountains are breathtakingly beautiful, photos can't do them justice. The hotels we stayed in were very nice, but the guesthouses were even better, with a real sense of Greek hospitality. Our guides, Danae and Stavros, were so warm and friendly. We were a very small group so it seemed less like a tour, and more like two people showing their friends around their awesome country. The itinerary packed a lot in, but we never felt hurried. The hikes were a bit taxing, but that was part of the appeal. The other activities were all fun and allowed additional opportunities to see the landscape and learn about the area. An unexpected bonus was all the delicious food we ate. This could almost have been a gastronomic tour! All of these combined to make one of the best experiences I have ever had.Show detailed ratings
- MichaelWritten on July 29, 20155.0 - ExcellentEnjoyed the trip very, very much and highly recommend Trails Beyond to anyone who wants to travel to Greece beneath the beaten tourist tracks.

- AandreasWritten on May 16, 20155.0 - ExcellentThere are no words to describe how we enjoyed this tour! We could hardly believe our eyes with the landscapes we visited and the quaint mountain villages we visited. The tour program was really balanced, so that we would always do and see things at the right pace, having the time to elaborate and get the most of all the experienced we lived. Even when a sudden snowstorm caused us some trouble on our way to Metsovo, the driver and tour guide kept their temper and knew exactly what to do. They clearly knew all those remote areas very well, found us a shelter in a warm cafe where we eventually spent the night thanks to the generosity of the villagers. We will always keep vivid memory of those hikes through the Epirus mountains and those incredible canyons. Highly recommended!Show detailed ratings
- NTNickWritten on May 15, 20155.0 - Excellent"we never thought that Greece mainland would be so beautiful and there are so many secret places that if it wasn't for Trails Beyond, we wouldn't have been there! Combining adventure, culture, good food and hospitality with a great sense of safety, this tour exceeded our expectations! Thank you Danae for this amazing experience! We'll definitely join you again :)Show detailed ratings
- CrisWritten on May 15, 20155.0 - Excellentit was an excellent choice of ours to enjoy a trip under Trailsbeyond guidance. The places were amazing and it seemed like we wouldn't find our way around if it wasn't for Dane, our guide, who reveiled to us the most special corners of the area we visted. Rafting in Voidomati was so much fun and the hike through vikos gorge was an unforgettable experience. It's nice to combine the feeling of safety and adventure without losing the leisure feeling of one's own holiday! We would repeat it any time and recommend it to everybody!Show detailed ratings
