Full description
Starting the journey from your hotel, you will make your first stop at the village of Chortiatis. From here you will head off-road through the Mount Chortiatis National Park. On top of the hill, you will be able to enjoy the magnificent views over both the lakes and the city. Your next stop is the traditional village of Peristera, where you will be able to join the locals for a coffee break. You will then have time for a little walk around, to visit the chapel of Saint Andrew, and to admire the architecture of the old buildings. From there, you will drive next to a small gorge in which you will visit a beautiful waterfall. It will then be time for lunch and to try some authentic Greek food and wine in a traditional tavern, complete with an amazing view. Following your break, you will continue to the beach to see the amazing sand dunes and crystal clear water. This swimming break in the turquoise blue water will be your last stop. This entire day guarantees a unique experience, with great photo opportunities and the best way to get a better feeling for the people and life in Greece.

We had a brilliant experience with Sarantis! He took us on a detailed and tailored tour of Thessaloniki. He was very knowledgeable on the local area and was able to answer all of our questions. We really appreciated him taking us to the more local and tradition areas, rather than the tourist heavy areas. By the end, we were sad to leave him! We would recommend his SUV tour to anyone!

This individual jeep safari with Sarantis is unique! Sarantis takes a lot of time for explanations, shows you beautiful secret places and responds to individual requests. We felt completely comfortable from the first moment and also had the feeling as if we were traveling with a good friend. The tour is very personal and a true (nature) experience! Photo stops are of course always possible and one beautiful moment followed the next. The traditional Greek meal in a quaint tavern was a highlight of many. Just like visiting a small chapel at over 1000 meters with a fantastic panorama or swimming in the cool sea. So what were you waiting for?! Book this individual experience and spend a wonderful day in Thessaloniki that you will never forget!

Exceptional service and experienced guide

Sarantis went well beyond expectations. He asked us about our preferences and gave us different options to choose from. The tour was customised to our wants and needs. He brought us to places in Greece and showed us a different side of Greece. And oh! Lunch was absolutely beautiful. Go to the restaurant up the mountain! We made that choice and it was the best choice ever. He even stayed with us well beyond the hours required just to send us to the airport at an appropriate time (not too early). I have so much more to say but not many characters left so I'm going to leave this review with these words: do it!
