My son (age 22) and I had a fantastic day hiking the Samaria Gorge with Mel. She arrived at 6:30 at our hotel in Chania to set out for the gorge, allowing us to get there before most of the tour bus groups arrived. Mel's expertise is in animal behavior, but she also has deep knowledge about the plant life in the region. Mel was equally happy trekking full speed down the gorge or stopping for a period to watch the wildlife (we we very lucky to see a pair of Kri Kri goats). Two thumbs up from us!
