Evia is a lovely place for walking and the food was great, although I would saythat more picnics would be preferable as we rushed through lovely countryside to reach a taverna for lunch and by the time dinner arrived many of us weren't hungry. A sandwich and a view would have been more preferable. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of the island, but did not appear to take pleasure in the walks and we felt rather hurried. A more leisurely pace would have been welcome and the time to enjoy the countryside through which we were passing. It could have been a wonderful holiday, but it felt rather spoilt by the daily route marches, which didn't give us the chance to enjoy this lovely island.
