I loved this trip! I have taken hiking/walking trips with other travel companies, but this was by far the best one yet. It was so well organized - everything went smoothly. The trip leader was well versed in the history of each island - and his enthusiasm for the country was contagious. We got to see parts of the islands that most tourists would never see. If you love the outdoors and love to hike, this trip is for you.
For me, it was our last hike on Noxos. It was a bit of a challenge. It was rocky going up and very rocky going down. I wasn't sure I wanted to make the last stretch of it, but others encouraged me and I did it all the way to the top and down. Afterwards, I felt healthy and invigorated.
I think that our leader, Thanos, really made the trip special. He keep everything running smoothly. He was a wealth of interesting information about the islands and their history. I really enjoyed listening to him. His love for these places was evident in his enthusiasm. Also he accompanied us to almost all of our dinners and had great recommendations.
If you are going in the fall season, be sure to have extra layers that you can remove as the weather changes depending on the elevations. I thought it would be warmer, but it was chilly in the mornings and evenings.
I think I have said it all.
Excellent choice of islands.
Very friendly group and leader
Climbing the rock at Skaros point on Santorini. The walk out to the point is pretty easy but do not climb up onto the rock unless you are a competent scrambler.
Cecile was excellent. Maybe she could have explained a bit more history/geology/geography
She was very organised and efficient.
You will want to return to Naxos which was the best of the three islands.
Bring reading material for the lengthy (but enjoyable) ferry trips.
Overall a very enjoyable trip. Visiting 3 islands made the week seem longer and more varied. The walks were generally leisurely but there were a couple of hills which we climbed in the hottest part of the day, but that could not be avoided. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend.
The Santorini walk from Fira to Oia. Walking on the volcanic island. Plus the beautiful walk on Naxos through olive groves and in the hills.
Cecile was wonderful; she got things just right, and was good company.
Some walkers found the hills, and loose scree a little challenging. Some had poles which helped. So maybe consider taking poles if you are unsure.
The trip offers an additional walking trip on Evia.; but number of my group thought an additional 3/4 days on Naxos at the end of the trip would have been really attractive. Maybe Exodus could think about this for the future.
