    This is an excellent tour if you want to find out more about the Cretan culture, flora and fauna. Our guide was Daryl and he went out of his way to show us the plants and animals found around Crete as well as the sites. We were told where to meet as we were staying in an Airbnb as opposed to a hotel. The lunch was in a great location and delicious. Again, Daryl was fantastic and made the trip most enjoyable. Highly recommend!

    You really get and appreciation for how wild and beautiful Crete is on this tour. The scenery is absolutely amazing. Our guide was great and an a terrific driver. I have to admit I'm a bit afraid of heights so some of the off-loading had me clenching my seat. The lunch at the beach taverna was delicious and the beach was sunny and calm. We did a swim in the crystal clear ocean before heading back. A great day even for the faint of heart like me!

    Michael our tour guide was wonderful. He was informative, patient, humorous, handsome and a good driver. He drove us in the landrover on mountain trails to the south side of the island to see the mountains, gourges, drank mountain spring water and swam in the Lybian sea. We had a great lunch.

    This is a very highly recommended day out. The guide was very knowledgeable and the scenery spectacular. It was really interesting to see the completely undeveloped and dramatic south coast of Crete. A day not to be missed.

    My friend and I had a great time! Fun and informative. We had a great guide, and got to see a lot of things on the island that we wouldn't have seen on our own. Definitely recommend!

    The guide was fantastic and spoke in English very good. If you have, opportunity then take this day trip and enjoy the 2 sides of Crete. The scenery is stunning. But we did not had opportunity to see Preveli beach as after the delicious lunch we had a bit time just at Libyan sea not at Preveli beach.
    Just ask the guide to take you there.

    Awesome Experience. Great tour guides! They were wonderful with my kids and explained things to them as well as to the adults. The places we visited were wonderful. We spent 17 days in seven cities in Europe and this was in the top two favorite things of my whole family. Highly recommend.
