What people are saying about Chania

Beautiful hike! Difficult for those who don’t have the best grip since it’s almost always downhill. However, after the first hour it is quite manageable (but long of course, took me 6 hours in total). Elena was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and (which I loved!) she reminded people to wear a mask on the bus. The Tour was overall really well organized with minimized waiting times (except for the afternoon, where you get to spend time in the village by the sea, but this was quite nice and doesn’t count as waiting time). The bus driver also did a very nice job. Only minor criticism I have is the breakfast break (20 minutes) which seemed unnecessary. Nevertheless, I highly recommend to do this hike with this company!

Great adventure, but would recommend walking boots. Be very careful to obey rules on keeping to path and stop walking to admire flora and fauna and taking photos. Quite arduous if you are not used to walking in the heat of the day. But please don’t be put off just be very careful where you step.

Really excellent. You're paying for the convience of everything being organised for you and they do just that. Coach picked us up from very near our airbnb and our tour gide Thomas was great, clear instructions on what to do when and a great charm as well.

Amazing experience. It is quite difficult hike and you must be careful to not get injured. Suggest to have proper hiking shoes since with my soft pad sneakers I was feeling every rock and was quite slippery

Great day owner was so knowledgeable about the area great music on board
