This was a fun, interesting, and interactive experience. We were lucky to have Darrel as our driver. He taught us so much about the surrounding area, about how cheese is made, the local culture and history, and had us finding griffen vultures. It was a good balance between on and off road driving. We learned a lot and laughed a lot and saw parts of the island of Crete that we never would have seen without doing this tour. I highly recommend this activity, especially if you can request Darrel as your driver.
One of the best, if not the best tour I’ve taken. I have used many tours in many countries but rarely have I enjoyed every moment of the trip, this trip with our excellent, knowledgeable guide Marinos was outstanding. Laughing, tasting, smelling, and experiencing much of the Cretan countryside. My one piece of advice if staying in Heraklion would be to hold off shopping until you’ve taken this tour to get a better idea of local traditions and goods. My wife and I could not have enjoyed more.
The trip was amazing. In contrast to the North beach part of the Creta the trip takes you to the mountains, full of green, small villages and interesting places. Our guide - Leonidas, was perfect. He told us many interesting information about the Creta, local people, mythology and also herb. I would higly recommend this trip. Just one point. The trip starts about 8 AM and the lunch is about 2 PM. Take some snacks and water.
The trip was absolutelly great, we had a very nice driver and we seen really a lot from Creete despite small rain.
Darryl was a fantastic driver and guide. He is very knowledgeable about local flora and fauna.
