We really enjoyed the safari. Once again we saw and heard something new and interesting. As a kind of private tour with 6 people in a Landrover (incl. children), we had a great day, including a delicious lunch and a swim in Frankocastello, a visit to Lake Kournas and off-road fun. Thank you very much!

At first we were unfortunately forgotten. Pickup was supposed to take place between 7:30 and 8:00, we were ready, but no one came. After a call from me at 8:15 am, a car immediately turned around to pick us up. Can happen, was well solved by the friendly staff. For about the first hour of the drive, I wasn't very enthusiastic, as you drive along the normal roads, which you could easily reach yourself with a rental car. After a few stops and the longed-for off-road driving, my opinion suddenly changed to a 5-star rating. All stops are really worth seeing, the off-road path is really worth seeing and the lunch is really very good and plentiful. Caution: those who are traveling with children should be careful, because the time to go swimming at the sea is between 12 and 2 p.m. in the blazing midday sun. All in all I liked it, we had a lot of fun and I would book it again!

We are absolutely delighted with this excursion. Our driver Costa showed us the most beautiful places and took photos with us in fabulous places where you would never go otherwise. The spots are absolutely beautiful and everything is perfectly timed so that you have enough time to look at everything everywhere. The mood was awesome! Costa sang for us while driving and cracked jokes with us and it just made you feel good. Thank you for this great excursion and I will book this tour again on my next trip to Crete. :-) Greetings Michael aka Michaelis and Jessica
