I really wanted to know a little more about the life of the Cretan people, their everyday life. Certainly, the best choice was this Land Rover safari in the central part of Crete from Rethymno to the coast of Preveli. I don't want to reveal all the details ☺️, but you should know that Dionysos, our driver, managed the whole day very professionally, many real stories, and facts about the island, but most importantly; Dionysos has a good sense of humor. The whole day is an unforgettable experience in my life. Thanks Dionysos!

A great day! Our guide Dionysius was very knowledgable and enthusiastic throughout the trip. Lots of stops and loads of interesting facts. The lunch at the taverna was way better than expected and was authentic. Dionysius ensured everyone swapped seats after each stop so we could all enjoy the benefit of the better seats in the front. Really interesting to see different parts of Crete and amazing to explore Preveli beach! Dionysius also recommended a great restaurant for us to visit the following evening, and it certainly lived up to his billing. Highly recommend!

This tour is absolutely excellent and a must for any visitors of Crete looking for a fun but also informative day out. Niko was our guide for the day and he was humourous but also full of information about the island of Crete, Greece in general and all the sites that we stopped at on the way. Unfortunately we had a medical emergency when walking to the beach at Preveli where my wife was stung by a bee - we were unsure if it was a wasp or bee sting but she is extremely allergic to wasp stings so there was a panic when this happened. Niko and the team responded quickly and calmly, helping my wife with the sting and being incredibly helpful throughout the situation. They are clearly well trained for medical emergencies such as this. Sting aside, the rest of the day was fantastic - we had the opportunity to take pictures of so many landmarks and had such fun in the land rovers with the group that had also joined for the day and this was all down to how Niko and the team ran the day!
