Thanasis Paparnakis

Tour guide and everything else needed!

+30 6936808989

Thanasis graduated Thessaloniki University as a Physical Education Teacher and had a successful career as an Open water swimmer.
He is responsible for tour planing, routes and everything else about the tours.
If you don’t mind riding that extra mile, he will take you to the best attractions, monuments and of course restaurants, riding roads that do not exist in your navigation unit!
He speaks Greek and English, and never says no to some extra riding!

Chrysa Ntantou

Communication / reservations

Chrysa is Thanasis’ wife, and responsible for office operations and PR.
She owns a MSc in International Business Economics and she loves to talk to people!
She also enjoys motorcycle tours but only as a pillion, and she does not complain (or just a little bit) on long rides.
Her first long ride with Thanasis was from Thessaloniki to Dubrovnik, Croatia riding some 750km in one day, through F.Y.R.O.M., Kosovo, Montenegro and Bosnia- Herzegovina!

Stelios Kafestidis

Tour guide

Stelios stuck with us back in 2012, when joined a tour in Romania as a client.
Thanasis took him on a midnight ride to celebrate his birthday with a cake and candles on the top of Transfăgărășan pass, at 2.034m...
He loves riding motorcycles, curvy roads, surprises, music and junk road food...
The birth of his son kept him away for a while, but he is now ready to roll again :)

Stavros Efstathiou

Tour guide

Stavros joined our 2103 tour in Romania followed by a few others like Montenegro and Poland later on.
His organization and riding skills along with his character were soon noticed, so we invited him to join our team and we are really happy that he accepted our proposal.
He really likes riding in the countryside and the mountians, but definitely prefers staying in cities than villages as he loves social life :)

Panagiotis Almpanis

Tour guide

Panagiotis' first 2 tours as a customer to Rodopi and Montenegro - back in 2013 - were very cold and wet, so he wouldn't speak to us for years :)
But we changed his mind and took him with us on a few more tours like the Dolomites and Turkey
With his positive attitude and excellent riding skills, it was just a matter of time to invite him in our team
