Reviewed on 03 Oct 2020 by Michael JacksonThis a great cycling vacation, not too strenuous but enough to make you feel like you have done a good days exercise. The visits to the archaeological sites, the caves, churches, the mountains, the sea and the small towns and villages provide interest along the way. Read full review

Reviewed on 27 May 2018 by Lucy WatsonHard to pick out high points of this vacation because there were no low points. Even the brief and brutal thunderstorms on two occasions did not dampen the spirits (and only dampened cycling kit for a short while). The theatre at Epidavros was spectacular and the experience of staying in Napflio was memorable. Read full review

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe are also owners of a small city hotel in the city of Tripoli in the center of Peloponnese. In all of our tours that pass from there you will most possible stay to us during your vacations. Here we recycle paper, glass, plastic and metal. At your arrival here you will be given a Travelers Code of Conduct, where you will get informed about how to apply maximum responsibility during your vacations concerning environmental and socio-cultural factors.
PeopleChoosing our vacations, you choose responsible vacations. As Mr Panagiotopoulos, founder and president of our company, was born and raised here, one of his biggest concerns is to secure that tourism will not affect negatively our area in ecological and socio-cultural way, and also that the locals will mostly benefit from your travel.
Our company which is the organizer and operator of this package is local-based and all our guides, drivers and employees are locals too, ensuring not only the economical benefit of our area but also your cultural benefit. In this trip, you will visit so many different places and you will always be surrounded by locals, experiencing the Greek way of living. But the most important thing for us, is that your presence here gives us a strong negotiation card for pressing the local authorities for the development of our area, such us constructing cycling streets in our city or finance and organize better our archaeological museums and sites.
