We had a. Day with Julia yesterday, and as a none plant lover I have to admit I wasbt expecting to enjoy myself. However, Julia is fantastic company and was able to keep plantys and none plantys alike entertained. I found her informative without condescension which is a difficult trick to pull off. We saw a view if the island... More

Our day out with Julia was the highlight of our holiday. We had a truly memorable day looking for orchids in the mountain meadows. We were lucky enough to find some due to Julia's expert knowledge. We saw and photographed many other equally beautiful wild flowers, as we wandered among the olive trees, to the sound of goat bells and... More

The two of us spent a day in the jeep with Julia guiding and Tony driving. We asked for Height, Views, Remoteness and Flowers. This is what Julia gave us. Collected at 10 in the morning, we travelled up into the mountains, stopping at a remote church and taverna for coffee and then on up into the high plateau with... More

We had a lovely day with Julie, she took us to beautiful places that we would have never discovered by ourselves, including some with breathtaking views. Our day trip was in August so they weren't many flowers to see, and yet the experience was unforgettable. We highly recommend it to anyone who would like to discover the region around Elounda.

My husband and I spent the most wonderful day with Julia in her jeep, we enjoyed it so much that the time just flew away. We were collected from our accomodation and returned there at the end of the day which was great. We had coffee and lunch in some lovely little tavernas and visited places during the day, including... More

We went on two trips with Julia and I have to say, despite the weather not being good we had an amazing time. Julia takes you to places you would not otherwise get to see. Her knowledge is encyclopaedic, but she tailors the trip to suit all levels of knowledge. I must say, we have been on many excursions in... More

Peter and I had such a wonderful day with Julia high up in the mountains away from the hustle and bustle of Cretan life. We saw the most amazing flowers and butterflies that we would otherwise have never seen if we had been on our own. Thank you Julia for making our stay even more special. We look forward to... More
