    A reasonably active, but not too strenuous trip, 4 for a holiday. Plenty of time to relax. A 4 group of participants. 4 weather! As expected.

    A wonderful trip - maybe needs some warnings that the Samaria gorge could be difficult for people with ailing limbs etc - but to be fair in your advance information it does say to have frequent practice walks!
