About 20 years ago, after having just finished our university studies, we started travelling to Crete and exploring its mountain tops and underground caves. We soon realised that the myths and the history of the places we visited are a vital part of what we experience today. The stage had been set and we were very keen to discover more.
Based on our academic backgrounds (archeology, regional planning, speleology) we gathered experiences and put them in order. Then we started sharing them with friends and acquaintances.
It was these friends and their enthusiastic reactions that got us going and finally made us start organizing all this material on a more systematic basis. That’s how our personal experiences got “translated” into specific tours. In the end, these friends are what PETASSOS is all about, since they were the ones who breathed life into our vision and made it happen.
