What people are saying about Chania

Worth a visit, especially if you like do a lot of hiking

First I was a bit unsure, if this hike was right for me. I do a lot of hiking by myself in my home country and I was worried that it wouldn’t be challenging enough. After all I decided to book it and I am wasn’t disappointed at all. You walk your own pace and there form some small groups. Or you can have the luck that you are walking alone. Even though there are like thousand people in the gorge daily it doesn’t feel overcrowded. If you have a normal/fast pace you have at least 3h of free time to get yourself a cold beer and enjoy your time on the beach. The organization was very good and our guide Thomas was s cool guy. A freaky Cretan mountaineer that has a lot experience and knowledge. If I had a chance I would rather walk in both ways not just down. But hey we are on vacation and we don’t need to overwhelm ourselves. In conclusion it was I nice trip worth the price. I would totally recommend it.

Perfect day-trip spoiled by our guide and driver

Perfect day-trip for a small group of persons. It is highly recommended. Christos, our guide, explained very interesting details about Crete and our excursion, and Stavros, our driver, drove us safely to Elafonissi and had good music in the car. Both were really helpful and kind with us. The excursion was really worth, there were not so many tourists, the sun was there, the water was transparent and hot to swim in it, and the sand was really pink. The restaurant and the cave on the way back were also worth the trip. I highly recommend this tour and thank our two nice guide and driver!

Visit is a must in Crete but guide is only useful for travel

Trekking the gorge was a must, but bare in mind it is strenuous and takes at least 5 hours! The start is early and day is long. You do not get a guide whilst walking! Basically travel from near your hotel location to the gorge and back is provided. This relieves a lot of stress so I would recommend it over public transport. There is a rather long wait between finishing the hike and the boat trip (4 hours). This was actually very welcome as we could spend time recovering on the beach. But just remember, bring swimwear with you as there’s lots of time!

Elafonisi is gorgeous!! A must-do in Crete!

Elafonisi is a gorgeous beach! Transparent and delicious water, white and pink sand, confortable infrastructure. It is one of the most beaches I've ever been! Our driver and guide were nice. I am glad I chose to go with the bus tour, because the road is tricky! My only remarks is that the stops could be in a more interesting location (such as some cute villages we passed by), and that we should have more time at the beach. We arrived at 11.00 and left at 15.00. We could have easily stayed until 17.00 and still come back with day light.

Outstanding beach and exciting ride to get there!

This tour does not disappoint. The drive to Elafonissi is so beautiful but if you’re afraid of heights, could be quite unnerving. Our driver was very skilled. The guide was knowledgeable and told us about more than just the history of the area, she talked about Cretan customs (such as how many people are invited to weddings and the story behind all the small shrines/memorials along the road). And the beach! Wow. So beautiful. 4 hours was a good amount of time to spend there...although I would have liked more.
