Where do we start? Our guide from Safari Club Crete was Jason and he made the whole day great!! We have traveled to a lot of places before, but as we are driving along mountain sand roads in a little range rover (very roomy for a group of 4 tourists) it dawned on me that - I had never done...

Another trip that was half the price by organising direct rather than paying Thomas Cook! We did the Minoan tour, it was excellent, our tour guide Thassos was fantastic, we shared our tour with a German family and he helpedus to communicate with each other as well as giving a great commentary to both groups. He had a great sense... More

This was an excellent day out. Really enjoyed ourselves. Our guide was Jeff he was brilliant. The BBQ lunch was great. Nice little shopping boutique on the journey where you could have a go making pottery, buy some gifts etc. The mountain goats were sweet. And the trip the cave was great. My kids loved it, especially the off roading... More

We had a fantastic day out despite the weather being terrible. Jason our driver was great, he was really knowledgeable about the same island and we got an excellent history lesson as we made our way through mountains villages and into parts of the island which you would otherwise not see. We met the locals from the cafe owners to... More

We booked an excursion through Thomas Cook for a jeep safari. We were together as a family in one jeep with Gary our guide for the day. He was lovely!! Very informative, relaxed and easy to talk too plus funny and able to take a joke. I think it's very unfair the staff say he looks like a griffold vulture... More

This was by far one of the best excursions we have had! We went on the Minoan route. Our tour guide Marino was so knowledgeable and extremely enthusiastic, as well as funny! He told us so much about the local culture, sights, history and produce, and definitely added to the brilliant day! We loved seeing sights that we would not... More

To be honest a visit to an old laundry, a very old tree, a goat herder, a monastery, some windmills plus a meal at a restaurant probably doesn't sound that interesting but our well informed driver (Jason) plus the spectacular scenery made the excursion well worthwhile and one I'd definitely recommend. So if you want get off your bums and... More

We had a great day out. Darrel was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge regarding both ancient and modern history, mythology, local wildlife and traditional customs. Being in a small group with the Land Rover makes the trip feel a lot more personalised. The lunch included was really nice, as well as the stops for raki along the... More

We booked this as a private tour in German from our hotel and did the so called "Minoan route". The car was in very good shape, the driver (Andreas) perfectly prepared and completely dedicated to our trip and well-being. Decent food, perfect timings - a wonderful day off, highly recommended to experience parts of Crete aside the touristic centers. Loved... More

Collected promptly by our very informative tour guide (Simon) and expertly driven on some great dirt roads up to the heights of a mountain range offering super views over Northern Crete. Fed goats, drank Raki, ate good lunch with rose wine and our guide even managed to find us some goats in trees. Unfortunately had the mandatory stop at a... More
