    It is an amazing hike. 6hrs from the moment you walk off the bus until you reach the beach town. It was extremely hot. This hike is probably better in spring or fall. Pay close attention to the instructions on the bus ride. It's not really a guided hike. Once you are off the bus you are basically on your own. The guide stays in the back to make sure everyone reaches the end lol. It's easy to forget the meeting points.

    This was an excellent experience, probably one of the best of the 14 days we were in Greece. Our guide was excellent and a lot of fun to hang out with. The food/drink was from a traditional farm and restaurant and was definitely the best of the trip aside from our guide.

    Be prepared for a long climb to the cave, it is approximately the equivalent to 44 - 55 flights of stairs (according to our Apple Watch/phones) before climbing down into the cave and back up again. The mythology from this tour is also very cool and interesting.

    One last thing, the goats climb trees here lol, we got some pictures of them up there, I’ll post one if there is a spot to upload photos here.

    We booked the 5 hour trip out of Kissamos and departed at 8:30am. We visited Gramvousa and the fortress site on top of the island and then went onto Balos. We arrived ahead of the crowds that come by ferry boat and then snorkelled in a secluded spot. Our captain was very knowledgeable about the boat and steering through the seas. He was very flexible about how much time we wanted to spend where. We had a great 1/2 day on the water!

    The crew was entertaining, hospitable, funny and kind. No need to pack anything but a towel and sun screen. They’ve got the rest covered (water activity gear, food; including a meal and snacks throughout, drinks; including wine, beer, soda and water). Definitely a must-do that only takes about 5-6 hours of your day and still have your evening.

    Bananas. Divers were f'ing great, nice and welcoming. They showed off some of the wonderful Cretan sea creatures. We ourselves played our own music, Mr. Worldwide of course, but would have loved if we could have this on speakers too.

    Got to visit some lovely wineries and taste 10 different wines, both red, white and rose. The olive oil tour was very interesting and the prices to purchase very reasonable. Our tour guide was great, very informative, thank you so much for a great day!

    We booked the trip for 42 euro each which included a meal and some drinks. We had completely misread the pickup time on the email but they kindly called us and arranged a direct pickup so we didn’t miss out and that was amazing.

    It was quite busy so not loads of sunny spots on the boat where we could lay down but I think if you’re quick you could secure one.

    Some calming music was played throughout, luckily some lads on the boat with us brought a speaker and played some more up beat music which was appreciated by us.

    We were allowed to stop at two locations to jump off the boat/swim in the sea. The captain was really funny/nice and very welcoming.

    Over all a lovely day was had. Food options were a veggie burger with bread and salad or fish steak with brew and salad. We went for fish was was really tasty but I’m a big eater and could’ve done with a tad more so take snacks to be safe if you like your food.

    Would recommend!

    Really fun quad safari trip! Our tour guide Simon was brilliant and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Discovery Safari's were great and even arranged a pick up and drop off for us. Would highly recommend!

    Great boat trip with the friendly and informative Mario and Costas. They told us facts about the myths and history of the island and Crete and were kind to my 9 year old son when he felt sick at the beginning, distracting him by getting him to help steer. The water at Dia island was beautifully blue and clear and we loved swimming around. The lunch was incredible. Would recommend!

    My family and I loved this minor tour. There were only a few of us which made it intimate and minor tour.

    We did the land rover tour from koutouloufari
    We are a family of 4 with a 12 & 15 year old and had the most amazing day .
    Yannis was our guide and he was so knowledgable and friendly we could not have asked for a better guide .
    The off road experience was fun and my daughter especially loved visiting the shepherd and feeding the goats .
    Lunch was amazing and we had lots to eat .

    Warning : Zeus cave is a steep hike of about 15 minutes and in the cave it is a climb down and up lots of steps . Do not attempt if you are unable to due to mobility .
    You can do other things from the base instead .

    All in all we had the best day out .
    Thank you Yannis

    Perfect excursion!
    Pick up was fast and easy.
    Big comfortable air conditioned bus.
    Kosta the driver was exceptional at maneuvering the difficult roads. Much safer than driving a car.
    Joanna was amazing! Fluent in English and Greek. We’ll spoken, interesting information. Her love of the area was contagious. Never boring.
    Their suggestion of tavern in the town of Elos was amazing. Delicious food and very reasonably priced. Fast and clean too!
    Elafonissi beach is one of those places you just have to visit. The best way to get there is by bus in my opinion.
    Very worth it!
    Bravo to Joanna and Kosta!
