Reviews for Western Crete cycling holiday


review 26 Sep 2018

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

Staying in the mountain village, Kefali (Inachoria). The accommodation was perfect (renovated local house with balcony). The hosts of Panarama where very welcoming and also ran a great Restaurant. Nice relaxed place to stay at the end of a days cycle.

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

We did the 6 day cycle over 2 weeks, so allows you soak up some of the local sights on the rest day. Plenty of additional information provided Re circular cycles from the towns. On the rest day in Paleohora, we took the local 06:00 bus (7) back to Omalos to walk the Samaria Gorge (5). You end up in Ag Roumeli, where u can take the ferry back to Paleohora (17). Great day out if you have your walking boots. The bike provided were perfect for the terrain, light hybrids (Trek) with 18 gears.

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

Yes. Local hotels, bike rental and taxis to ship luggage.

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

Superb. Really enjoyed the cycling and didnt encounter too much traffic on the back roads except when approaching the larger towns and beach resorts. Id highly recommend taking 2 weeks if u have the time.
