Dear Athanasios and Nickolaus, We revert to our pilgrimage tour we undertook under your guidance and with your valuable assistance to the Holy Mountain of Athos in the middle of August 2015 and want to thank both of you one more time for all your kind help you provided us. For us as Roman Catholic Christians to live under the same roof and to pray together with the Orthodox monks and yourselves had been and will stay a new, very strong and lasting experience. We wish you all the best for the future, may the Almighty bless you and your families! Eugen, David, Ludvo

Dear Athanasios, it was a great pleasure to visit Athos with you. As you said it takes some time to realize what we have experienced and what we have experienced was truly exceptional. Please let me know if I can be of any help regarding a trainee for your younger son. Have a nice weekend Best regards Mathieu

My journey to Mount Athos began many months before my actual departure from the USA. Mr. Bantis provided me with detailed information regarding the numerous historical and religious sites present on the Holy Mountain which enabled me to “customize” my pilgrimage. Although I had outlined a rigorous schedule that would challenge the most experienced of guides, we had no difficulty in meeting the outlined itinerary. My pilgrimage over three days included five monasteries(including Simonos Petras, to which a visitation pass is prized and most difficult to acquire), three Kelli’s, and personal meetings with ascetic monks living in isolated sites on Athos. The paths on Athos are unmarked and pilgrims travel by trial and error, obviously resulting in delays with a risk that their destination may not be reached. These paths are well known to Mr Bantis. All aspects of my journey were meticulously arranged and completed, including all transportation and accommodation needs to and from Athos as well as on Athos. I was regularly introduced to monks throughout Athos, all of whom Mr. Bantis has personal friendships. We attended numerous morning and evening liturgical services. My personal and spiritual life was deeply enriched and much of it I owe to Mr. Bantis’ expert guidance.
