We were warmly welcomed by Michaelis and his wife. After a short introduction to the bikes the adventure began. The tour was very varied with lots of stops at interesting and beautiful local places and also personal stories from Michaelis. He is a very experienced and passionate guide, who always has a smile on his face and can give many insider tips for further holiday trips. All in all it was such a nice and fun trip with great impressions, views and a delicious lunch that some days later we've booked the next trip there - the advanced trip to Patsos gorge :) Many greetings from Berlin, Mandy and Michael
Everything was organised very well. We were picked up from near where we stayed and driven to the start of the gorge. Had to buy our own tickets. Make sure you have cash before you leave because the ticket office only accepts cash and there's no ATM anywhere there. Also make sure you have water because, unlike Samaria gorge, there is no water anywhere inside. You can wait at a tavern on the other side for your bus which will take you to the sea. We only had about an hour to get to the beach, swim, change and come back but it was enough. The bus then took us all home. Great experience!
Es war ein schöner Tagesausflug von 8 bis 16:30 Uhr. Für die 8 km lange Wanderung bestand mehr als 3 Stunden Zeit. Da es keine richtigen Wege, sondern nur das ehemalige Flussbett mit Steinen und Geröll gibt, benötigt man auch mehr Zeit. Ich empfand es nicht als einen lockeren Spaziergang und habe auch tüchtig Muskelkater. Mit zwei Pausen benötigte ich 2,5 Stunden. Vorteilhaft wäre gewesen, wenn in der Schlucht die Entfernungen angegeben wären. Das Schwimmen in dem wunderbaren Ort war ein schöner Ausklang.
The tour was great and Balos was beautiful. The only thing we didn't like was that the apparent soft white sand they promised was filled with rocks and seashells and cigarette stubs of other people. It was also very hard to get into the water because there are slippery rocks every where. It would've been great to get the tip to wear swimming shoes so you don't hurt yourself like I did. But everything was greta
The beach is absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit. The shallow, crystal clear waters are so relaxing. The day trip by coach does make for a long day but it is nicely broken up by refreshment stops to and from the beach. It’s also worth mentioning that the trip is really engaging and feels like much more than just a bus service.
