Greece Guidebook Reviews

“Like all of Theodoropoulos’s indispensable books for Kaly, this one is also a thing of beauty and a big, ‘Oh, buddy, I gotta go there!’ shot in the arm…
Τhere is a lot to explore in Greece, and this book is a best-of sampler to get you going.”

“This guidebook, in English, is easily understood by all because it is clear and precise, full of practical and useful info for climbing and traveling. Especially well-made in the same vein as the Kalymnos [topo], which makes one dream so…Hats off to Theodoropoulos for sharing a Greece so alive, where everything is possible, with passion and happiness.”  Claude Remy

“It is an incredible job; this guidebook is very precise, very good-looking, with nice pictures and has everything.”
Gaetan Raymond
“If Greece feels the crisis, its climbing is distinguished by an incredible vigor. This [guidebook] is a masterstroke by the author who presents, for the first time, the unknown vertical world of his country in a perfectly successful reference book.”

DELIVERY: We ship worldwide using international priority airmail by the Greek Post Office. Unfortunately, with international airmail there is no tracking number. However, in our experience, it is very reliable. All guidebooks are posted within three (3) working days of cleared payment. Average delivery times are 7-10 working days to EU countries and 15-20 working days to non-EU countries. Guidebooks are safely packaged in a 100% recyclable book mailer derived from recycled post-consumer waste.


SHIPPING COSTS: We charge a flat international rate which is much lower than the actual postage fees (ranging from €9-€12.50). We do our best to keep the cost of shipping down, but this may change at any time depending on sudden postage increases.


SHIPPING ADDRESS: We ship to the address you provide on PayPal. Please double-check your address to ensure it is correct. If you would like the guidebook shipped to a different address, please notify us under PayPal’s special field “Instructions to Seller”. If you provide us with the wrong address and your guidebook gets lost, we’re afraid we will not be able to replace it for free.
