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.

Overall really enjoyed the experience and thought it was great value for the price! The beginning of the hike was a little hectic as two bus loads of people entered the trail at once (where it's very narrow and slippery), but after about 20 minutes of walking people started to spread out and walk at various paces. It took my group about 3.5 hours to complete the trail, we walked at a brisk pace and only stopped once for 15 minutes to eat our lunch. We really enjoyed the beautiful scenery and quiet (not as many visitors in October). Once we reached the end, we walked through the town to get to the beach and enjoyed a couple of hours there in the sun.
