We had an amazing time on this excursion, learning about the history of Greece and the city of Rethymno. Lunch at Lake Kournas was lovely. Our guide, Christine, was friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend this trip to others!

Fun tour of Rethymno, seeing old and new parts of town. Excellent guide in Giannis, very knowledgable, caring and generous. Segways don't take long to get used to and get even easier after a glass (or 2) of Raki

We had a great day and a suuuuper guide who we had a lot of fun with !! thanks
