This was a great experience. We were in Crete for 5 days and unsure of what tours to take, but I would recommend this tour to see the other side of the island. Our guide Stelious (I think) was fantastic, he was funny and educational. The tour had quite a few stops to break up the driving and enjoy some of the scenery. We decided to rotate the seating as it would be a bad situation if you were always stuck in the back 4 seats for the duration. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Crete for the first time.
We had a great time with our driver “Gary the Goat Killer”. Did everything he could to keep us occupied and informed. The sights, driving, lunch were all great. Only downside was the stop at the Cave of Zeus. Did the climb up to it. Couldn’t get in as the cue was too long for the time allowed. So it was a waste of time and energy. For those who couldn’t make the climb there wasn’t much to see or do for the hour we had at the stop. May be worth dropping that part of the tour.
Was very happy to dive with them. A very nice first experience in diving. Pick up was on time and everything went very smoothly. Had to wait about 2h on the beach to get back at the divi office after the dive as another person had a dive. Didn t mind as it is a beautiful beach and time passed by before I even noticed. Grab (pay) a chair and enjoy the beach. Will come again, but for 2 dives!
I joined this tour with my 14 year old son,we had great time. It was my first time to drive this quad bike,but it was very easy.Andreas was friendly and experienced guide. Lunch we had in a small village at the top of the mountain, tomatoes, cucumbers,cheese, chicken, everything was fresh and tasty. We would really like to do it again.
Great tour, offroad truck will pick you at your hotel and you can explore the most beautiful parts of Crete, you can experience the Greek/Cretan hospitality in small towns inside the island. Michalis (Sniper) is a great guide!
