Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This was an amazing tour!! Leonidas was an excellent guide and driver. He took us to the perfect lunch spot too. We debated renting a car and once we decided not to, we opted in for a full day tour instead. And I’m so glad we did that. Took away the stress of driving and we were able to explore more of Crete than just Chania, so worth every penny. Thank you, Leonidas!

    Akrivi was a wonderful guide, and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with her. She is extremely knowledgeable and is a great storyteller. The tour added so much value to our experience and provided context to everything we were seeing. It wouldn’t have been the same just walking around reading the signs. 10/10 recommend doing this tour with her!

    This boat trip was our best day on crete :) There were beautyful places to see and the food was tasty and light, so we could go swim afterwards. The tourguides were courteous, nice and friendly and gave us all the time a good feeling. We also had some dolfins swimming for a while in front of the boat...
    The tourguide Elena named them Stone and Alex :-D
    Thank for this day!

    Kostas was such fun tour guide! Make sure to bring your sense of humor. He is also so caring & thoughtful. He goes out of his way to make sure that you get the most experience in your tour. He has connections with the locals & make things happen. We’re so bummed to find that the Olive factory was closing for the day, Kostas used his charm & persuaded them to give us the tour & he performed his ‘how to drink Olive the right way’ performance for us😆 He’s also very organized, he came prepared with packaged of snacks that he treated us with at each stops. Each of those snacks represented authentic Greek foods & some of them were prepared by his mom & crops from their own farm…how thoughtful!
    We had three young adults & two adults but I think any age group would have a great time with Kostas.

    We loved the tour Elena designed for us (family of four persons). She was a very pleasant guide with a lot of attention to our needs, and a lot of explanation of the sights we passed. We have made wonderful memories. Elena knew the perfect spots to take pictures. She told us a lot about the history of the towns we visited.
    And the tour was organized on a very short notice, but it was perfect.

    2 1/2 hour ferry ride was very relaxing and worth the trip. Blue domed whitewashed builds are a beautiful sight, up close and personal. The sea view is overwhelming. Rugged rocky landscape to walk, wear very comfortable shoes. This place is known for being overcrowded but during my visit.

    I cannot express how awesome this tour was! Crete is such a beautiful island with so many wonderful places to visit and we couldn’t decide what to do first! We were searching for a tour and a guide that could accommodate our interests and oh boy were we lucky to find Angie! She drove us to so many places like the cave of Zeus, the plateau in Lasithi (with the windmills), a small traditional village known for the huge plane tree more than 1000 years old, the olive oil shop (I wish I had more room in my luggage!!) and last the Knossos ruins! I highly recommend this trip!!

    The sail out was very relaxing, fortunately we were blessed with the weather!
    We had plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful, clear waters around the island and were provided with snorkels, paddle boards and a fantastic meal cooked by the crew!

    Would highly recommend this trip, great value and a great day out! ☀️

    We had an awesome time on this trip! The captain and crew were great and very accommodating. Our captain caught a Tuna on the way out, so we had fresh fish for lunch!

    This is a great tour. I learned about Greek mythology and more. Also, I’m a kid and I loved it so you are probably going to love it. Especially other kids! I told es I wanted to touch clouds in the mountains and he actually drove us there. Being in the clouds was fun and foggy. Overall this was a a great tour.

    It was very interesting to see a Nunnery and Monastery. Lunch was disappointing. Lovely fresh Greek salad but avoid chicken and orzo it was very bland. The scenery was awesome, the plateau and villages picturesque and some lovely ceramics to buy. The only thing that you should be aware of before you go, is that if you find a very steep climb difficult or are terrified of heights, the cave of Zeus is not for you! It’s a 20/30 minute climb at the top of the mountain to gain access to the cave and the last part is rocky underfoot. When you get to the cave itself there’s approx 200 steps down and up out of the cave. However, if you’re lucky enough to be able to manage it (and many did while we were there) it’s not very big and needs lighting up better than when we were there. Definitely an adventure! If u don’t want to go up there’s some lovely places to eat have coffee or a delicious ice cream! The tour guide was great and full of interesting facts and information. Would definitely recommend.
