It was a very interesting & well organized tour. The guide was very friendly & knowledgeable. After the tour, passengers whose hotels were further apart were driven to their hotels in minibuses. Would definitely recommend.

Great experience. Got plenty of time to see everything in your own pace too. When I wanted to add a last minute extra part to my tour (to Knossos palace), the tourguide Irene made sure this was made possible.

A great tour, the fantastic guide very kind and friendly. The impressive cave and highly recommended to visit the other stops were also tasty, the local wine was very rich.

Our guide was excellent and the driving skills of the driver were outstanding as well :) I would recommend everyone to visit this unique place - Lasithi Plateau :)

Amazing landscapes, something unique to see in your life!❤️
