Really special place, don’t drive past as we almost did. This is not a tourist trap but has an owner who clearly loves the reptiles he looks after. He has you holding snakes (harmless) and lizards within minutes of arriving. The children around us of all ages were loving it. His enthusiasm was infectious and I can’t recommend this strongly enough. Much better than the cave which bought us here (which was also good)

We visited Reptisland on our way to Melidoni cave. This is a very unique experience. The owner is more than welcome to explain and answer questions about the animals. Holiding a snake, a chameleon or a gecko is amazing. The price is totally fair and worth it!

Fabulous place, well worth a visit. Spiros was very enthusiastic and knowledgable he allowed us to hold many of the reptiles. He said to my son “relax my friend and then the snake will relax”. A very enjoyable visit only €4 per person, money well spent

At just €4 per person, this is honestly the best money I’ve spent all holiday! I would be happy to pay double that for a visit here. Easy to find and parking is available directly outside. I visited today with my children (aged 5 and 1) and they had the best day ever (so the 5 year old tells me!). The owner is really friendly and knowledgeable about the animals and my children were over the moon to be able to interact with and hold snakes, lizards, chameleons etc! We spent a good few hours here handling and learning about a variety of reptiles. It was lovely and quiet so no issues with regards to social distancing and there was somewhere for Grandad to sit down while he waited for us! I would definitely go back here and would recommend it as a must see for anyone holidaying in Crete!

Great place for a stop in the nice local village of Melidoni. The guy who runs the store as well as the lady were clearly passionate and happy to explain details about the various reptiles. Kids absolutely loved it and got to hold a variety of snakes and lizards! Obviously a great deal of care put into this place.

We visited on our first day of hiring a car. What a wonderful experience. Family owned business and a very “hands on”experience. The son has had some of the reptiles for 21 years and breed from them. My 14 year old loves reptiles and I grew to love them. Lots of information in the form of QR codes to gain information if you wanted to go around yourself. Only €4 to get in and we’ll worth the cost and more….

Once found, was a great place to visit with young children (6&8 yr olds). Very interactive. Lots of snakes and reptiles to see and hold. Friendly owners welcoming visitors & encouraging all to interact with the reptiles. Larger, poisonous ones kept well behind glass. Turtle & tortoise also on show plus small croc. Located next to petrol station on road to the caves. Spent about an hour there in total.
