The 11 day tour is focused on three areas of Greece, the monasteries of the Meteora,the villages of the Kravara and the Outer and Deep Mani.

This new and original tour is based on the writings of Patrick (Paddy) Leigh Fermor who wrote about his walking experience in Greece in the mid fifties. The 11 day tour is focused on three areas of Greece, the monasteries of the Meteora,the villages of the Kravara and the Outer and Deep Mani. The tour is best described as a walking cultural tour and has been well designed by Ruth Hackney, who lives in Areopolis in the Mani. It is a very interesting experience which enables one to get a good perspective on the extreme hardships experienced by the Greeks in this part of the southern Peloponnese as well as the unforgiving and beautiful land they lived in. One can also experience the local cuisine in the different regions visited.

Kudu Travel: Walking in Greece in the Steps of Paddy Leigh Fermor

This was an imaginatively designed walking trip taking in mountainous and the Peleponese regions of mainland Greece in a party of 12 or so. We knew some but not all of the others whom we found v congenial. The lead guide was outstanding, reliable and delightful. The hotels and meals were excellent. The variety of experiences good. The only problem was 3/4 days of rain - some v heavy.

This is our only experience so far of Kudu who seemed reliable and imaginative. The main plus was the excellent guide.
