Wonderful experience with Pari. Clouds blocked some views but that's my only complaint! Pari had a lot of knowledge and was a good driver on the way.

Pari was a great guide to share this day’s hike.As a true local who grew up in Samaria in the White Mountains she has unique knowledge of the landscape and its people.This was my first time trekking in Crete and it was fantastic to be in such capable hands.All in all a gorgeous coastal walk and my favorite of my time spent here this holiday.
