Since our original tour was simply canceled at short notice, we booked this excursion quite spontaneously. We did not regret it! We saw a lot of the island that day. The gorges were very impressive. In Preveli you have to walk further to the beach, high steps and temperatures of 38 degrees have put us off and we went to the beach directly at the tavern. It was almost too windy for swimming anyway (very high waves). Our guides Frank and Leif as well as our driver Mikali were in a great mood and we had a lot of fun. Lunch in the tavern was very good and plentiful!

Wonderful tour through the original Crete, nature, vegetation. Driver and guide Dionyssios gave us a lot of information in a very humorous way and made sure that we remembered it. The drive off the road was with magnificent views and the swim in the dream bay was refreshing. Thanks to Dionyssios, who gave us a happy vacation day to refuel. This trip is very comfortable despite the narrow streets and absolutely safe thanks to the good driver and really worth every euro!

Very nice, eventful and last but not least entertaining tour through the Cretan mountains to the Preveli palm beach. On this tour you can see a lot of the landscape of Crete. The guide knew a lot of interesting things to say about the island. The drivers and the guide were always in a good mood and also very funny and entertaining. Preveli Beach is the highlight of the trip and absolutely fantastic. There you have about an hour and a half stay. With this safari, however, the way is the goal. You can see a lot of the island and get a great impression of southern Crete. Due to the guides and the landscape, the trip is never boring at all. You can only recommend this safari to everyone. The 75 euros pp were worth every penny!
