Frequently asked questions and tips

What kind of clothes and shoes is needed to wear?

It is recommended to wear easy walking shoes because there are some specific areas where you may need to walk on uneven or rocky ground and comfortable clothes to feel relaxed and cooler especially during the summer months. Also if you are interested in visiting some religious monuments, please dress appropriately.

Useful tips:

During the summer time in Greece there are high temperatures and the sun is very hot. We recommend that you wear sunglasses, sunscreen and possibly a hat to protect yourself. In every one of our sightseeing rides we offer bottles of fresh water for every individual to stay cool and hydrated.
