What you'll do

We will meet at Loutraki and we’ll talk about the experience, who we are and what is our scope. We’d like if you can also share some things about you and let us to know you better so we can make any potential changes to the itinerary that fit your needs! We always want all travelers to live an amazing experience.

We will then get on the car and drive to Diakofto where a trip to your dreams awaits. Boarding the scenic train, the Cog Railway, you will go up on the green slopes of Helmos, a tour described as one of the six rarer train tours in the world. You will cross the beautiful gorge of Vouraikos and after 60 minutes you will reach the beautiful village of Kalavryta.

Then we will visit the monastery of Agia Lavra which was built in the 10th century and became the center of the national liberation fight of the Greek people.

After that you will have free time in the village of Kalavryta for a coffee, lunch or shopping.

The last stop of the tour is “Mega Spileo” (the Great Cave), one of the most famous and ancient monasteries in Greece. According to legend, in a remote cave a miraculous carved image of Holy Mary was found by chance, made of resin and wax.

Because Dimitrios himself could not make it, we made the tour with his brother Vangelis. He was a fantastic host for our tour and we could not ask for better.
