We had a wonderful Thursday walk in the Agios Andreas area! Interesting and informative, especially regarding all wild greens and plants and its significance for the Cretans. Also excellent food for lunch, plus a coffee stop with traditional bread and snacks. A great day for aus, two adults and one almost nine-year old.

This is my 2nd outing with happy walker and was impressed again with the content of the walk, friendliness and helpfulness if staff and thorough local knowledge. We walked with a very mixed group from different countries and backgrounds and we were all made to feel comfortable and language was not an issue. The walk included a coffee stop and... More

I was there during Easter. What a feast it was to do a walk with this company. I went with my wife and 6 year old son. We walk around 14 km. It was truly amazing. The scenography, the comments from the guide. We had a "coffee break" before the lunch. Because it was Easter they were preparing a lamb... More

They are pretty much out of business and offered no trips at all this summer, the office was closed and the lady told me it was for lack of customers. However, another company, Greentours, offered some amazing trips for walking and mountaineering.

The only negative to say about Happy Walker is that in their webpage or brochures they are not telling "may cause addiction" ... plenty of Happy Walkers are repeaters coming year after year, day after day. Guides know so many things about Cretan nature (both flora and fauna ) and Cretan culture. Their language skills are excellent and they are... More

Picked up at near by point to hotel. Dropped off at start of walk with guide. Seven in group.Cost 35 euros each. Guide spoke in English and German. Very informative. We were told we needed a reasonable fitness level. I think it would have helped if the distance of walk was put in brochures. We walk at home around the... More
