What are the trips we remember the most?
What is the travel experience which has left an indelible mark on our memory and we are very willing to retrieve it when we recollect the memorable moments of our own personal histories?
These are the questions that PETASSOS agency asks and tries to answer on every trip that we organize. These questions are the starting point and the inspiration to form and shape a journey across space and through time.
At PETASSOS we do not understand a trip as a movement in space or a transition from one place to another. Movement provides us with just an opportunity to start the true journey, which is a trip across human experience and takes place on the stage of the world around us.
At PETASSOS we organize outings, trips and tours that are centered on the representation of an event in history, on a human activity or on tracing the outline of a natural phenomenon. Our “narratives”have a beginning, a middle and an end. However, the lead actors in our narrations are the people who choose to travel with us. In our stories there are no silent participants or “cameo roles”.
Our excursions are organized by specialists on the theme of each journey: geologists, biologists, anthropologists, archaeologists or people who have had “hands-on”experience in activities that are now disappearing from modern life.
The group of travelers with PETASSOS end up becoming a group of friends, or “parea”in Greek, who usually stay friends for life. No matter how many years may pass by, our own travel experiences are always linked to the experience of our co-travelers. It is their presence, their laughter or their comments that we register on our hearts and minds and in this way we shape our own experience.
The work of PETASSOS may be summarized in the following guideline: our agency will have been successful if and only if we realize that experiences and people stay forever in the memories of our clients.
