The walks are creative & carefully tailored
“Hiking with Michelle is a joy. Michelle has deeply researched the locale & this shows. The walks are creative & carefully tailored to the needs of the group. It’s blissful hiking along the mountain paths, passing through unspoilt villages & ending up dropping into the Aegean Sea. The hikes are embellished by Michelle’s sharp sense of humour & her hilarious & witty Welsh anecdotes. Of the many group hikes that I have undertaken, Michelle’s are without doubt the most fun.”

The blend of laughter, gentle exploration and plenty of swimming were just right for me
“Michelle turned out to be a right laugh….She started off by emphasising the importance of enjoying the journey, going at our own pace and enjoying the view, but on the way back down from our 10 hour mountain ridge walk, all that went out the window and she kept telling me to ‘hurry up, or else we’ll never get back to the taverna before daybreak!’. I couldn’t have been cajoled along by a funnier and more cheeky walking guide. The blend of laughter, gentle exploration and plenty of swimming were just right for me….apart from the ‘you know what’ walk, the pace was always to suit the group. And did I mention her packed lunches? They were to die for (not literally, she has got a food hygiene certificate), most welcome on our long walks. Thanks Michelle, I reckon I’m going to try out your Welsh Wanderings next, once the weather brightens up!”
Kalikalos is very welcoming!
“The Pelion was so beautiful I ended up going there twice in one year. I particularly enjoyed the mountain ridge walk and discovering the caves at Damouchari and Fakistra. I can definitely recommend the kayaking and Kalikalos is very welcoming! The chocolate desert at Damouchari is worth a try (if you like that sort of thing)”
What a great afternoon! Michelle is an excellent guide
“My ‘Songlines’ experience…. What a great afternoon! Michelle is an excellent guide; not merely one who ‘knows the way’, but one who is sensitive to everyone’s pace and interests, allowing the group to discover treasures for themselves. Singing out in nature was a real treat and Orla expertly led us through some magical songs that have stayed with me since. The food and secret dining glade were amazing! The whole day had been planned with so much care that I’ll definitely be going again and recommending it to all who enjoy walking and group singing. It all felt pretty special…esoteric even.”
