About Us

Pilgrimtours.gr was an idea inspired and elaborated by George Dimopoulos, founder & part-owner of HIMALAYA TRAVEL S.A. Being the son of a priest from Messinia, he got into Travel Business from an early age and together with his partner Alen Narlian, established a successful Travel Operation that for almost 40 years now, has been handling a diversity of Travel services, expanding throughout the years with thousands of satisfied clients.

HIMALAYA TRAVEL S.A. is a “Special Interest” Travel Agency established in Athens in 1985 which among other specialties, like ECO Travel and Accessible Travel for the disable, handles successfully any kind of Religious (Pilgrimage) travel in Greece and abroad.

Our Faith

Travelling for more than 40 years around all Christian shrines in Greece, Asia Minor, the Holy Land and other parts of the world, I believe that participating in a PilgrimTour, walking on the same places where Christ and the Apostles have walked, lived and taught, today (same as then) the traveller will have a unique experience and deeper knowledge of Christianity and the Gospel.

This is the message of Love and Hope for life and the future of humanity, same and untouched throughtout the centuries;

« That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another »

« ..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. »

This is the message we try to pass on to our clients who visit Greece, with our highly qualified staff, experienced professional guides exclusively for Christian Pilgrimage groups, using high standard coaches and hotels. Our goal is to give  visitors a combination of all the natural beauties of our country, with history and culture as we are “walking on the steps” of Paul, John, Andrew and thousands of others that lived and preached here during the early years of Christianity, until the most recent one “St, Nectarios of Aigina” last century.
