About us

Masimou (from Greek μαζί μου -with me) started in 2018 with the idea of making holidays more enjoyable.

Laura, our founder, was always the private tour guide. Whenever friends or family visited, she showed her guests what she had discovered on her hikes and excursions, booked flights, organised airport transfers and found suitable rooms.

During excursions with her guests, it was always helpful that she spoke a few words of Greek, because this enabled people to get deeper into the world of the locals.

And when a friend told her how grateful she was for Laura’s company, the idea of Masimou was born.

Since then, the Greek knowledge has improved, the organising structure has become more distinctive and the number of explored hiking trails has increased. 

Masimou has grown from an idea to a network of women who are there to help you plan, book and organise your Paleochora stay.



"What a relief to get this friendly and efficient service... within 24 hours I was sent options with prices, views, facilities.... it made the decision so much easier about where I'd spend my holiday. The room is booked and I look forward to another wonderful time in Paleochora Paradise!”
Anna Greenfield
“I would not have ventured beyond the boundaries of Paleochora without a walking companion. With Laura I had two great day hikes where I felt safe and in good company.”
Antje Becker
“Smooth organisation of my seminar. I received photos and videos of the possible accommodation, the afternoon programme was exactly as I had expected and even my wish for an evening with Greek Live music was fulfilled in October.!”
