Must-do in Crete
Meghann_M, May 2022
Unfortunately, Samaria was closed the day of our trip due to a recent landslide. The company quickly pivoted and took us to a smaller, but very close nearby, gorge and we got to have our hiking experience just the same. What I would add for anyone booking this trip (and I recommend you do) is to know that this trip is very comparable to many of the other Samaria excursions on TripAdvisor, despite there not being very many details in the listing. There are two stops for coffee/food, one on the way out to the gorge and one on the way in, so you don't have to be worry about opportunities to eat. We also visited a beach after our hike. Also, it is a very long day. We were picked up at our resort in Hersonissos at 5:25 am, so be mentally prepared for that.
A must do for hikers visiting Crete!

Helen was an excellent knowledgeable and friendly guide who made us feel welcomed on our trip to Samaria Gorge. The experience itself was breathtaking with beautiful views all around the gorge. We would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Crete but be warned the walk is not easy and a good pair of walking shoes are essential. We were very happy with the price compared to other providers and would not hesitate to book with Altino Travel again.

Experience of a lifetime!

Michael the tour guide was awesome. It wasn’t an ordinary trail hike it had many different aspects. Brutal but worth it!
One of the best experiences of my life

It was mind-blowing and unbelievable. The views in the Gorge were breathtaking, the cliffs on a boat trip from Agia Roumeli were gorgeous. The whole trip was unforgettable. Don't forget to prepare accordingly! Wear comfortable sports shoes, grab a hat and a sunscreen, take an empty bottle to fill it along the way, bring some snacks (protein bars or trailmix) and favourite music. And even if you are a physically conditioned person, your legs are gonna give you hell next two or three days.
Tolles Erlebnis
Alexander, May 2022
Ein wunderschönes Erlebnis, das man unbedingt mal machen muss! Ende Mai war die perfekte Zeit. Der Guide war unglaublich nett und hat viel über die Insel erzählen können. Die Wanderung an sich ist nicht sonderlich schwer, nur ziemlich lang. Es ist empfehlenswert viel Wasser (2 Liter pro Person) und ausreichend Essen (Obst, Sandwiches) mitzunehmen. WC sind immer mal wieder auf dem Weg vorhanden. Am Ende der Wanderung kann man in dem Dorf Agia Roumeli gut trinken und essen und anschließend auf dem Boot entspannen. Nehmt euch was zum Umziehen und auf jeden Fall offene Schuhe für danach mit! Eure Füße werden es euch danken!
Samaria-ein Muss

Ein tolles Erlebnis und eine atemberaubende Landschaft. Wir können das nur weiterempfehlen. Am Ende waren aber konditionell am Limit. Gute Wanderschuhe und etwas Erfahrung sind hier von Vorteil.
