Elafonisi Full-Day Tour from Chania

3 reviews
After we pick you up in the morning from various locations around Chania, we will follow the green north coast just before Kastelli and finally reach the rock chapel of Agia Sophia through the village of Topolia. After a short visit to this incredibly interesting site, we will proceed to the main attraction of the tour! Elafonisi is located on the southwestern most point of Crete and being an oblong gives the impression of being a separate island as it seems to be divided into two parts by water. On the eastern side of the beach, in front of the lagoon, you will find umbrellas, showers, lifeguards, snack bars and changing rooms. In Elafonisi, you will have plenty of time to explore the area and swim in the crystal clear waters!

We visited Fisika as part of a trip from our cruise ship. It was a lovely experience. The owner and her daughter explained the whole soap making process and were very informative. It was really interesting to learn all about the different herbs and natural products. We bought some excellent soaps and creams. All beautifully packaged and they made great gifts - in fact it's so nice to take home something genuinely greek and not imported rubbish. We have just started to use the soaps at home and I love them. The face cream is nice too. I would gladly return, wonderful products, sold with a smile and a story to tell.

This small natural soap and body products lies just outside Chania. They hand make their products based on family knowledge and history. We went with a group tour so we got a whole presentation from one of the principle owners. She speaks perfect English so for us non Greeks it was easy to relate to the whole experience. The owner puts on quite an elaborate demonstration of the product making and reason why products are made of certain elements. Even the kids in the group were entertained. Most in the group purchased products to take home. The smells are subtle so if you like good natural low smell products this is definitely a place to stop.

One of the best recommendations trip advisor ever gave me! Visited this little treasure in Gerani while I was on vacation with my family! My wife was totally amazed by the quality of the products made by this local family for over a decade! My kids where playing in the garden with their dog - Leon - and me enjoyed a tour in the soap factory! we left this place full of gifts for us and for friends with all our senses fully satisfied! Totally recommended!

Visited this lovely family-owned shop on May 31 during a tour of Crete. It was delightful!! The owners (Filio, Voula, & Maria) were so friendly and they treated the group like personal friends. The presentation given by Filio (the witch) was soooo entertaining and informative. We learned all about age-old soapmaking techniques and how they use gentle, natural products, for all skin types-even for men. And, oh, the smells of natural scents - orange, vanilla, lavender, chamomile, chocolate, to name a few!!! And you have to check out their website!!! Their prices are very reasonable. We all left their with face cream, oil, soap or something in our hands!!! I definitely plan to reorder more products on line when needed. Thank you, Fisika Ladies (and Leo) for making our visit worthwhile. We loved it!! Dazzlindiva

Hello Dazzlindiva! What a dazzling review!!!! :) Thank you so much for taking the time to write in detail about your visit here! We're so glad you liked it. It's true, our soap witch loves to talk about natural products and her making techniques; in fact, she is so chatty that we sometimes have to ask her to stop - heh. Send us your reviews about the products you got from the factory or the online store if you wish, Filio will be glad to chat about them too! See you also on Instagram or Facebook! A big hug from all of us, Maria & Leo, Voula & Filio the FISIKA team
