Following this, you will depart for Elafonissi. On your way to Elafonissi you will be able to see small traditional villages combined with typical Mediterranean scenery, as well as the rugged landscape around the Topolia Gorge.

Costa and Barbara are an unbeatable team! We were picked up from our meeting point in a good mood. A well air-conditioned minibus. Costa was our safe driver and "DJ" very warm and above all he spoke good German. Barbara our "guide" not only convinced with her extremely friendly and personable manner, but also fascinated me very much that on the one hand she spoke fluent English and Greek in addition to her mother tongue German. Her knowledge of Crete was not just read down, it was full of passion and heart. Our well-being was monitored and asked at all times. Elafonisi Lagoon was beautiful and a great experience. The water is crystal clear. You will definitely find a great place to enjoy and relax. On the way home we drove through a village of chestnuts there we returned to a small beautiful tavern with delicious food and good prices. I say thank you for the great day. 100% recommendable.

Really loved this small group excursion. Our tour guide, Barbara was excellent and gave us a fabulous hot tip to get the most out of the experience at the beach - you'll have to book to find out what it is! Very interesting stop for refreshments and an opportunity to explore a fabulous cave. Really enjoyed the authentic Greek cuisine on the way home. All on all, very well worth doing.

Great experience! The only hiccup we had was out of the control of our guides. There was a soccer team on our tour that were very late and wasted a lot of our time and had no consideration for the rest of the people on the bus. However, our tour guides did their best to keep the day running smoothly and for that, we are very appreciative. Overall, a fantastic day with fantastic weather!
