Wonderful self-guided walking trip

The organisation and support from Ariana was first-rate.

The walking on Andros was a fabulous experience on this rugged wild island with great views.

The maps and way marking were exceptionally good and simple to follow.

The accommodation varied in style from simple but comfortable to more sophisticated with more facilities such as swimming pool, etc.

Andros is a beautiful island with small relatively undeveloped towns and friendly local restaurants.

We hope to return soon.
