This was our favorite day in Greece over the 2 weeks we were there. The trip was exciting and beautiful. Eddie kept everyone entertained and made everyone feel like family.

Eddie picked us up from the hotel, and right from the start he put us at ease with his down to earth personality and cheeky humour! He was great throughout the day and has quite rightly earned the name "Crazy Eddie!".... More

Horse handlers with no knowledge -flicking horses as they move past them, grabbing the reigns and pushing the horses closer together whilst knowing Two horses have pecking order problems. The horse in front of mine kicked at us... More

Great way to experience the Cretan countryside and culture. Horses were superb and Eddie (crazy) was a fountain of knowledge on everything Crete. The food (and wine) were homemade and excellent. Well worth your time.
