Antoni has set up an unforgettable experience of sites and fun.

The guide was on time to pick us up. The jeep was clean and well maintained. While traveling the beautiful countryside, the guide provided background on any historical sites along with answers to any of our questions. The views were breathtaking and we were allowed to stop and take pictures to remember this once in a lifetime experience. We were also given suggestions on places to eat and visit that only a local would know. You can tell that Discovery Safari is the original provider of tours and has been doing excursions for years. I would recommend this trip to someone who wants a unique and custom experience of Rethymno.

Alles hat super geklappt, von der Buchung bis zum Ausflug. Gleich ein paar Stunden nach der Buchung meldete sich sie Firma Discovery Safaris vor Ort und teilte uns eine Abholzeit mit. Mit einem Kleinbus wurden wir abgeholt und zu den Jeeps gebracht. Es waren doch einige holprige Wege dabei, so wie auch gedacht. Unser Guide hielt öfter an um Fotos zu machen oder uns etwas über die Natur Kretas zu erzählen. Es wurden auch 2 schöne Strände angefahren. Es hat uns sehr viel Spaß gemacht und wer das wilde Kreta sehen will und sich den Wind um die Nase lassen wehen will ist hier richtig.
