Having read the reviews and done the walk, I'd have to say I think the descriptions in the guidebooks and on TripAdvisor are over-stated. Many reviews on tourist sites - in my opinion - give quite a misleading picture of the walk, describing the gorge...More

Amazing place, just 10 minutes by car from the center of the city of Rethymno. It's about an abandoned old village inside the gorge of "Myloi". Cool, full of small rivers, ponds and trees. Amenities like wooden tables and benches for a pic-nic are available....More

We walked part of the gorge, had a picnic and walked back as we have a child that wouldn't have walked all the way there and back. It's a beautiful place, free parking on the road and the red hop on an off tour bus...More

We went first to the town of chromastiri(?) and from there took the 'old path' and walked down towards the gorge and got in already at the first entry (we were told most to the second). It was very pretty and also a good change...More

There is a tourist bus that goes from Rethymnon up the gorge to a military museum & there are at least 2 stops for people to go into the gorge. The leaflet for the bus service is available all over the town.
