Full description

Choose from a morning or afternoon Quad Bike safari, and benefit from a hotel pick-up from Rethymno, Bali, or Georgiopoulis. Journey to the base in Rethymno town and get kitted out with all the necessary equipment. Listen to a detailed briefing before you set off for some serious off-road fun. Journey up into the mountains of Maroulas, and head for the summit for a 10-minute break to take in the panoramic views. Then, continue on your bike for another 20 minutes to reach a spot where you can relax over coffee at a traditional kafeneion (Greek coffee house).

This was an incredible experience. I was alone (and female) and never rode a quad before. The terrain is a bit challenging, and some of the mountain ledges you are driving on are very narrow, high, and with steep drop offs. But the instructors Were so very kind and patient with anyone who was afraid or having a difficult time in any way. If you want some adrenaline and STUNNING views, I highly recommend.

Best trip ever! I don't know what to say more. The guide was amazing, breathtaking nature and it was so much fun on the quad bikes. My boyfriend was driving the entire time, even though I have a driving licence too, because the off-road part was in my opinion for more experienced drivers but everything went well and nobody had a problem. I enjoyed it from the back even more because I could pay attention to the beautiful nature more. They will take you into the mountains where live only greeks and there are no tourists so it's an amazing change from what you see every day during your vacation. They will even make photos for you which you can buy at the end of your adventure. Worth every penny! Oh and wear something old or less expensive because you will be covered in dust :D

Great tour! My fiancé and I really enjoyed it! Great views at all the stops! Especially enjoyed the sunset on the mountain and the beautiful lake. Sandwich that was included was delish and loved that we enjoyed during the sunset! Guide was informative and always made sure everyone was doing well throughout the tour! There was a compartment on the quad for our backpack which was great. You’ll be supplied with both a helmet and a goggles for the tour. We did the afternoon tour and were glad we brought jackets as it was pretty cold and windy once the sun started to set. A bit dusty and muddy, but we were able to complete the tour without getting any mud on our clothing and shoes (my fiancé took it slow while driving through the puddles). Highly recommend!
