An excellent experience along the Cretan nature at its best! we were welcomed like old friends, they even offered us cool watermelon and a Greek frape free of charge while showing us the horses! We had a small lesson about horse riding and were given the appropriate horses according to riding abilities! I rode on Pamela which was a fantastic horse! We had a break on the mountains with this panoramic view with the wine yards and olive trees around! Just perfect! The personnel was always next to us asking if we are having a good time and ensure our safety and our horses safety! The horses look so well taken care in a great condition and shape and truly loved like equal family members! They explained us about the horses life general information which I found really nice, these people are so passionate with their horses! At the top of the mountains the experienced riders went for a canter! A small family farm worth visiting! Value for money! Thank you very much! We will come again!
An early start for a 6.10am pickup, but so worth it! The walk is beautiful and by starting early you miss the heat of the day. The way down is very steep and slippery, but as long as you wear suitable footwear it’s fine. We did it in about 4.5 hours including the odd stop for a drink and whilst we’re moderately fit, we don’t hike much. It’s great to get the time at the beach after to relax so definitely being swimwear. A must do whilst I’m Crete!
This was an amazing adventure. Some people were hiking with sandalas, but you must have a good sneakers or shoes. It wasn't so hard as some people would say. So grab a pair of sunglases, 2 or 3 bottles of water and prepared for an amazing hike, which mister Bilbo Baggins would appreciate so much. P.S. You should know, that in a second part of a hike you will not find so much spots to fill water bottles, so beware.
Perfect scenery! Beautiful nature! Original people! Perfect condition of horses! These guys truly love their horses! They treat and respect them, we were amazed by their whole attitude to the animals but also to the guests! Genuine Cretan experience and hospitality! They made their very best to make sure we enjoy every second! Thanks a lot for this day! Worth time and every penny!
It was just wonderful trip with very kind and helpful guide. The trek itself is kinda tough - in total 17km walking on the stony paths, your body will sore. Honestly not for everyone. Although, the nature and scenery there is just amazing and I really really recommend everyone to go there. Whole trip was well organized, we didn’t find any problem. :-)
