    We did the all day Land Rover tour from Hersonissos to Cave of Zeus. Also including shepherds hut with cheese, olive oil factory and raki tasting, Kristas village, off road to a mountain viewpoint and bbq Greek style lunch. A very nice fun day out which everyone really enjoyed. Kostas was very informative and gave us a lot of interesting info about history, local wildlife etc. Highlights were the cave, the lunch and spectacular Mountain View which you would need a 4x4 to reach

    If you're looking for an adventure to uncover the hidden gems of Crete, then this tour is perfect for you. Led by our expert tour guide Mario and his team, you'll embark on a journey that you’ll remember for a lifetime. They'll regale you with fascinating stories about the history of Crete while showing you around small towns, villages, and stunning views. The adventure includes a visit to goat farms, herb picking, exploring Zues’s cave, and savouring a delicious traditional Greek farm meal. You'll travel off-road in a Land Rover, allowing you to experience the true beauty of Crete. I would recommend this trip very highly as it is a unique and unforgettable experience.

    This trip was intended to be spent with a group but as my friend got sick and the family that was also supposed to be on the trip never showed up so it was myself and the tour guide, Mike(I know it’s not spelled like this). Firstly I would like to say cudos to the company because they knew the situation and still showed up for the tour! The owner is very passionate about his business and it really showed. Throughout the trip, I was never rushed at any of the stops I got to look around at my leisure and bottles of water were provided. Mike was a wonderful tour guide, I especially enjoyed the mythological stories that described the origin of the names of a few places and absolutely loved being able to pick and eat the local fruit and nuts. I visited during off-season so a few places were closed like the banana farm but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Would recommend taking this tour with this company specifically.

    We had a fantastic experience on the Balos / Falassarna Beach tour with a knowledgeable and engaging guide who offered great insights into Greek history and culture over the course of our experience. The vehicle we rode in was very comfortable for the 6 total guests that were participating in the experience. It was definitely the right choice for us to go with this tour, which allowed us to view Balos Lagoon from an amazing vantage point, but brought us to the more intimate and secluded Falassarna Beach to enjoy a beach day. We received snacks as part of the experience and a beverage for the beach upon our arrival. Despite the fact that it was the “offseason” we had great weather; sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s/80s Fahrenheit. The water was fairly cold when you first waded in, but once you committed to dunking yourself in, it became more than tolerable and my wife and I spent a good chunk of time in the water. The water itself was absolutely beautiful like something out of a painting.. While there wasn’t a lot of it, we were fortunate to see some pink sand, which was a fun surprise. The lunch we had at the beach would have been better categorized as a feast. Everyone in our group was able to select a beverage of their choosing and we shared the many Greek dishes family style to ensure we could all try the local delicacies. My personal favorite wound up being the orange cake for dessert, which was heavenly. We would definitely recommend this tour.

    The guide was amazing. We went as a German couple and the hole group was German. Everybody was very friendly. The guide speaks very well German and answered all our questions. Before we get started, he told us, who to reak if we have a problem and that's made me feel safer, because I knew, if I don't get the hill, he will get me up there.
    The views were amazing. We didn't see much from Crete before, but after we knew a lot about nice spots. Driving by myself was amazing. It just coud have be more Offroad than just the first 2h (about). It was a nice opportunity to see the south side and the hills between. We stayed on the north side.

    This trip involves three stops - cave, beach and village visits. While all three were terrific, the description is incomplete. The cave involves walking up 250+ stairs. This was fine for most of our group, but our 80 year old could not climb them. The beach is pretty, but very crowded. We couldn't rent chairs and a umbrella because they ran out before we got there. During the village trip, you could either eat dinner or explore the village, not both.
    The tour company did everything they promised - transportation and a guide. I just wish we would have had more info before we selected them.

    For me a 60 something very overweight bloke this was challenging and maybe a bit too challenging but I did it and it's super impressive. It is hard work and the difficulty can detract from the experience if you not young or fit.

    Setting out on the journey to Balos Beach and Falasarna felt like stepping into a hidden paradise. The water was so clear and vivid, it seemed almost surreal, as if I were entering a painting. From the top, the view was breathtaking, with the vast expanse of the sea blending seamlessly into the sky. Riding in the cars through the rugged terrain added an element of adventure, with each turn offering a new perspective of the stunning landscape. It's hard to truly capture the beauty of these beaches in photos – experiencing it firsthand was an unforgettable moment, one that will forever be etched in my memory.

    Great hike! Doable unless you have knee issues or are not fairly fit and healthy! Elafonissos Travel did an excellent job! Clearly communicated the pickup spot, got us to the start early so peaceful trip and through the gorge before it was too hot. Thomas was a great guide, explained the trip, had our ferry tickets when we needed them.The bus driver provided a safe trip on a challenging road! Would not use any other provider!
