What people are saying about Omalos

Great hike from the top of a mountain to the gorge, beautiful scenery from beginning to the end with a lovely beach to dip in at the end. The guide Linda was very lovely.

The guiding was professional and informative. This is quite a hike, so it best to be prepared I qould probably think twice if the temperature was over 32 degrees Celsius.

The bus trip to the Samaria Gorge was great. It was comfortable, on time, with a friendly and helpful guide. I would highly recommend it!

Elena took good care of us and gave us the information we needed to succeed. Exactly as advertised!

Punctual, good communication, easy and fun experience.
