Everything worked out great, from the pick-up, the guided tour & the drive back to the hotel! Everyone was very friendly & you felt safe at all times! Would book it again anytime :)

Totally recommend this fab safari! A great way to see the rural parts of Crete and mountains. Very good guide, well explained and safety conscious. A good length of time on the quads.

Esperienza bellissima. Abbiamo optato per il tour del pomeriggio, che nel periodo di settembre inoltrato permette poi di godersi il tramonto da uno dei monti che domina Rethymno.

It was great, our guide Andreas was friendly and knowledgeable. He kept the tour entertaining and exciting. 10/10 experience :)

Fantastic Guides. Very enjoyable experience. Highly recommend
