Mike and I enjoyed 5 walks with Happy Walker, the guides were most informative and we learned so much about the flora and fauna of Crete. The walks were challenging and the views rewarding. A highlight was the hospitality in the Tavernas , fabulous authentic Cretan food. We'd love yo come back.

We were pleasantly surprised as expected just a brisk walk which turned into a full day venture! Our guide Alida picked us up promptly at 8 AM then made several more stuff to collect the rest of the crew. We then spent half an hour bye mean the white mountains to the Village of Agios Konstantinos when we started our... More

Me and my partner did 2 walks with Happy Walker and would have loved to do a few more if we had time. Walks are of a modest length and cover a range of rural terrain, easily accessible from Rethymno but could be difficult to do independently. Guides are friendly and helpful and did help us organise Imbros and Samaria... More

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

Here for a week, we have left the beach and shops of Rethymnon to get out into authentic Crete on a walking adventure followed by a coffee stop... More

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

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
