We had a fabulous day with Mel who made recommendations from the start to make sure the tour was right for us. Beautiful hike through the gorge, just the right length. Mel was very knowledgable and informative about the area. Finished the day with a swim in beautiful clear waters on a local beach. Would highly recommend Mel and the tour.
A 5 out of 5 experience. The gorge walk was simply stunning with help from our friendly guide and awaiting driver at the end. The end of the walk was celebrated with a few drinks at the taverna near the end of the gorge. We did our walk early April and the weather was perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great company, weather, distance, time of the year, and relaxing in the shade of the taverna at the gorge exit. We both really enjoyed meeting you. Thank you very much for a lovely day with the two of you!

Excellent tour. The Gorge itself is beautiful, good facilities and at just over 7km, a comfortable walk with enough challenge to be interesting. Mel was wonderful, very accommodating (even brought us some fennel pie - excellent) and looked out continuously for our safety and comfort. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her

We were really pleased with Mel and her guidance for our trip. We completed this day trip near the end of our walking holiday and were feeling a bit weary, but Mel controlled the pace to our needs stopping and resting more often as we needed. It was a memorable day of the St Irini River Gorge and her local knowledge immensely appreciated. A great day and a good way to have ended our walking holiday. Thank you Mel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Alan Thank you for your feedback. I guess you are back home now and your holiday probably seems far away. Thank you for trusting me with your tour. I am always happy when I meet people like you and your wife who share my enthusiasm on the natural beauty of Crete. It was great meeting you. Mel
We did the Agia Irini hike in september with Melita. She was very friendly and knowledgable to show us the vegetation we came across within the gorge. She was also very efficient to organise the tour at short term notice. The agia irini gorge is a worthwhile walk, with splendid scenery and less arduous and crowded than the Samaria gorge.
