Our Ambassadors

"The course helped us to develop our skills, complete our knowledge and gave us the push we needed to start a new business, introducing "OurWay" to the city of Thessaloniki."

Gerasimos Mazarakis - Stavros Papadopoulos, founders of an alternative tourism company

Stavros Papadopoulos and Gerasimos Mazarakis are both graduates of the Alternative Tourism training program, which is implemented by the American Farm School under the “New Agriculture for a New Generation” program.

Stavros is an insurance agent and Gerasimos is an accountant Gerasimos and they both attended the program having in mind that they wanted to turn their hobby into a career, as they both loved nature since they were young.

They both joined Scouting from a young age, so they know firsthand how life in nature offers opportunities to people for an alternative way of entertainment. For many years they have been doing these kind of activities in an "amateur" level, but after participating in the program they decided to take the next step.

They tell us "The course helped us to develop our skills, complete our knowledge and gave us the push we needed to start a new business, introducing “OurWay” to the city of Thessaloniki.

This business venture is their own way of experiencing alternative tourism and they believe they will be able to offer unique experiences and activities in nature to those that will join them.
