Great guides, great job! The organization was very good. We were the first tourists on Elafonisi beach and could make the best photos. guides have thought of everything: lunch boxes with regional delicacies, drinks with cool bags, charging possibility for smartphones. On the way, we also had the most exciting Crete presentation about traditions and culture. We have even learned the most important words in Greek. Almost everything I tell about the island at home, I learned from Christine. The road to Elafonosi beach is curvy, but the driver drove carefully. we felt very safe. After the tour (fully embarrassing) we forgot our diving masks and swimming shirts on the bus. Christine brought them to our hotel. Extremely lovely, thank you! That was our last day on Crete and absolutely the best one! You can rely on Christine! Thank you very much!

Very well organized. Tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The bus was comfortable and in great condition. The road to Elofonisi is quite steep and winding, so if people have car sickness they might want to take precautions, but the beaches were amazing and so worth it. I would definitely recommend the tour and going with this company

Perfect beach day! It was beautiful to see Balos and relax on Falassarna beach in our reserved cabana. The water was amazing and the lunch to follow, exceeded our expectations. On top of that our guide Dimitris was extremely kind and knowledgeable and so accommodating. Don’t hesitate, book this tour!

It was a really beautiful tour and a great experience!! We had a great time and we loved all the places we have visited. The tour operators and guides were very welcoming, pleasant and very nice! I would definitely suggest it and for sure i would do it again!
