What people are saying about Chania

Landscape that is worth the detour. But as expected far too crowded in July and far too hot. To do out of season. For others, stop coming in Converse or Stan Smith, it's a real hike with 4km of slippery descent, and 16 km of stones .. and take a real backpack. We saw too many people with beach bags over their shoulders, that's nonsense. Regarding the tour, unfortunately the places where the bus stops to eat is really not that great. Provide a sandwich either.

Mostly there’s not much thing we had to take care due our tour guide’s absolutely reliable professionalism. Also, pro tip to not bring many water bottle, ‘cause you can find fountains at certain rest areas and refill. Backpack, sportshoes recommended. Pay attention to the given map carefully! Have cash by yourself for tickets later!!

Very long and very hot, exhausting day but so worth it to visit the gorge! Please be prepared with actual hiking shoes or you will not make it through the entire hike. Water is frequently available at rest areas on the journey. The gorge is worth it and beautiful!

Very enthusiastic tour guide. Speaks almost any language. Dutch, German, English, Greek and French. Stopping enough to eat and drink, even after the canyon. All explanations are clear. Pick up point was made clear. We could walk at our own pace.
