Please help with Crete Itinerary

My husband and I are spending a week on Crete (6/25- 7/1)and I am trying to work on our itinerary. We would like to spend time in villages, go hiking and walking as much as possible, check out ruins, take a boat trip, etc. I am having a difficult time planning our itinerary and would love some feedback. As of right now, we have the following:

Day 1- 12:30pm- fly from Athens to Chania
Day 2- Chania
Day 3- Chania
Day 4- Paleochora or Sougia
Day 5- Hike the Samaria Gorge
Day 6- Drive to Knossos- Stay the night in Heraklion.
Day 7- Ferry to Santorini

We definitely want to hike the Samaria Gorge and since we are going in late June/early July and expect crowds, we would like to start as early as possible. Will Paleochora or Sougia enable us to do that?

Also- what day trips should we do from Chania? How long do we need for the city itself?

How long will the trip from Paleochora to Heraklion take? (I'm thinking 4 hours maybe..?)

Thank you in advance for any advice/feedback!!
