What people are saying about Crete

Really great experience! We had heavy rain and expected the activity to be cancelled but our guide happily accommodated us. This is a family business and the operators are skilled at making everyone comfortable and feel at ease. A lovely evening of trail riding with beautiful views, a delicious meal and warm hospitality. It could be improved by providing lockers to secure valuables, and briefing participants at the beginning, to help anxious abs inexperienced riders to know what to expect throughout the journey.

What a beautiful day! Very funny welcome and instruction by the boss, absolutely lovely horses and a very nice ride - both for our daughter and for us as parents and then a delicious lunch. And all employees are very, very friendly. Highly Recommended!
