Reviews for Walking and botanical holiday on Karpathos Island, Greece


review 16 Apr 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We loved this holiday! We felt so welcome by Evangelia and the others involved, and before long felt like they were old friends... Everything was relaxed and easy-going, even when we did some longer hikes. We learned so much about the island and the way of life as led by the people of northern Karpathos. Their self- sufficiency is amazing! The feeling of hospitality and generosity of the people will stay with us forever.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared to be flexible on the itinerary. We were early in the season, and so Evangelia had to move a few things around, but for us it was perfect. Take good hiking boots, long trousers, and a sun hat.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We were very happy that our money was spent locally, from eating locally grown and organic food in family owned restaurants, staying in a locally owned apartment, and being with tour guides were passionate about retaining the local way of life!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This holiday was great fun and gave us an extraordinary level of insight into life in a remarkably unspoilt corner of Greece.
