We were so lucky to find Christos Ananiadis at the last minute to accompany my brother, son and nephew up Mt Olympos. He fitted in totally with their plans, even meeting them off the plane at Thessaloniki airport and taking them into town to spend a few hours seeing museums and exploring. He then picked them up and they all then went to Litochoro to spend the night before the first day on the mountain. Christos booked the refuge, so we didn't have to worry about that either. Christos is a very experienced guide and made my family feel completely safe and secure. Mt Olympos can be a treacherous place, and care must be taken, so it was great to have Christos's expertise. They wore helmets and used ropes towards the top for safety reasons - something they wouldn't have been able to do without Christo. They enjoyed fabulous views from the mountain top and an incredible sense of achievement. Christos was both really good company and knew the mountain like the back of his hand, so there were no concerns about getting lost, what pace to walk at, which refuge to stay at etc. He kindly drove them to their hotel in Thessaloniki at the end of the second day on the mountain, which was a great help. My brother, Guy, son, Denis and nephew, Marcus will never forget this wonderful experience, which was possible thanks to their excellent guide.

Chris (Xristos) is a great host. He was our guide to a walking hike through the Olympus mountains and Meteora. Thoroughly recommended

I emailed Christos because I had a free day at the end of a work trip in Thessaloniki and wanted some adventure before flying home. Despite the very short notice, Christos and his wife went out of their way to get me out on a guided route of Mt Chortiatis about 20 mins outside Thessaloniki. Christos was incredibly friendly and genuine and made me feel welcome. I had a great time and will definitely look to plan a more adventurous excursion with Mountain Spirit in the future.

Christos was our guide on Mt. Olympus, guiding us to summit Skolio peak at 2912m. Although not technical, it was a relentless steep climb to the summit. Chris lead us at the perfect pace on the uphill climb, slow & steady. It was a long day of ascent & descent and Chris's knowledge of the mountains and the various routes helped us time it perfectly. In addition, his stories in Greek mythology, renditions of anecdotal experiences from rock climbing, hiking & mountain rescue kept us very entertained & grounded too. He is very forthright when it comes to the safety of his hikers, pointing our precisely when its not safe to veer off path. Chris accompanied us to Meteora and took us on an interesting guided hike, giving us loads of information about the topography & rock climbing experiences there. Besides the knowledge & wisdom of the mountains, Chris is a genuinely passionate person about Greek food & culture and enthusiastic about sharing with the outside world. We learnt a lot from him and would go with him again if we went back to Greece.

As a first time hiker/climber, I could not have asked for a better, more personal service. I've had the experience of a lifetime reaching the peak of Mitikas and learning all about the history of Mt. Olympus! This would not have been possible without Xristos' amazing positivity and personable attitude. I would highly recommend!
