What people are saying about Crete

I enjoyed the walk very much. Beautiful scenery throughout and well organised. I would recommend proper shoes (not sandals or trainers) as the stones are rough and slippery. You can hire sticks for €3 each and I would recommend those too. It felt like the guide was pushing us a bit time-wise, but he did so to ensure we walked the canyon in the shade: if you do not like the heat this is important. It took us six hours from start to finish so we had almost 3 hours in Agia Roumeli to enjoy the beach. The beach in Agia Roumeli has a few stones; you can rent umbrella and chair for €7. There are restaurants and small grocery / souvenir shops there too. We were originally booked on a Tuesday, but when we got to Omalos we were told the weather was too bad and we returned home: I think they could have predicted this sooner and avoid us waking up at 5...but they rescheduled for two days later and it was all smooth. Those who could not go got a refund. Omalos' bar has food but is not great.

Full-Day Samaria Gorge Trekking Excursion from Chania Reviewed by Anonymous, 10/18/2020

It was a wonderfully memorable experience, our guide Thomas was super cool, and prepared us well for the day. Make sure your knees are in good shape, wear proper shoes that support your ankle, you will be glad you did, also knee support like knee sleeves might help. Have a hat for the last few km, it will get sunny and have swim gear for when you get to Agia Roumeli, it's a shame not to enjoy that blue water at the end. The ferry to Sougia will be the cherry on the cake, gorgeous 1h boat ride with superb sights of the mountains meeting the sea. The 1.5h drive back through the mountains is on very bendy mountain roads, so don't eat or drink too much before; it's about 50 min of non stop bends, if you're car sick be prepared. It will surely be a once in a lifetime experience, but it will totally be worth it, be prepared to be limping around for the next 3 days, it's no joke, your legs will feel this hike!

Really great full day trip to Samaria Gorge! Very well organized, our guide Thomas explained everything in great detail, very competend and helpful guide! The early morning pick up at the hotel was on time and we were among the first to enter the gorge and start the hike. The hike is individual, not in the group, so you can walk your own pace and take time for breaks whenever you like. After an approx. 5h hike (this is without taking longer breaks!), we arrived in Agia Roumeli at around 13:00 and had plenty of time to walk around, relax at the beach, swim and have something to eat at a local Taverna. The ferry back is at 17:30 and we arrived back in Chania by bus at around 20:15. All in all a really great day, so I highly recommend this tour!

It was an excellent morning. Ideal for complete beginners, families and children. They show you how to ride and hold your horse throughout if you'd like. The pace of the ride is very slow and the route is safe. If you are a seasoned rider, just sit back and enjoy the scenery. It's more about seeing the countryside than the ride. At the end there is an opportunity to gallop briefly. Gregori and his family are the most welcoming and generous I have ever seen. The lunch is huge so come hungry. They can accommodate dietary requirements. Products are locally grown / sourced. Wine and spirits are included in the lunch. Gregori takes pictures during the ride which he prints on photo paper and you can purchase at the end.

Horse Riding Day Tour with Lunch in Heraklion Reviewed by Anonymous, 10/19/2020

The island is incredibly beautiful! It's definitely worth it to walk to the beach on the other part of the island to get a view of the Crete island and the turquoise water. But the boat trip wasn't that great. We were there at 10 am and left at 11:15. The crew waited for anyone who wanted to join. Considering the Coronavirus regulations, you could say the ship was overcrowded.
