Mackie was a really great guide and made everything run smoothly. She gave us all the important information about the gorge, was very entertaining and we immediately knew that we were in good hands. It started an hour after us and would have been there for us in case of problems. The gorge itself was beautiful and I was very happy with my hiking boots and walking sticks! Although not exactly untrained, my wife and I had sore muscles in our calves for 2 days afterwards.

Pickup worked perfectly. The trip to the gorge was entertaining and interesting thanks to the tour guide. There was enough time for the hike itself and everyone can hike at their own pace. The return trip by boat is a very nice way to end the day. This excursion is highly recommended for anyone who can walk well.

Everything worked out great. From the punctual pick-up in the morning, a pleasant drive to the gorge, the Central organized maps for the hike and the ship, the tour guide and the return trip. We can only recommend Get Your Guide

Ingenious gorge with great impressions. Not to be underestimated and not recommended for knee problems - sometimes it goes down steeply.

Very good organization! Everything on time. A very nice guide, and Elafaonisi is such a little paradise on earth!
