I can varmly recomend this activity,Costas is a very friendly an enthusiastic person and all things we went looking at he tells the story about. We vere nearly 1200m over the sea for beautiful wievs, he even fixed coffey and bsguettes for us to eat, and he took us to lefkas old capital up in the mountains to have a coffe break together with the locals,the trip started in Nidri center,up the mountains over to the west side of the island and saw the crystal clear water at Nikitas Beach. I can only say we will be back as Arnold Swartchnegger should have said. Best regards to Costas...

A true Jeep safari, showing all the ins and outs of Lefkas. Going off-road to highest point of the Island with a stunning panaramic view of Nidri. A place you cannot go without a proper 4x4 verhicle.

He showed the old towns of Lefkas, the old capital of the Island and how the original inhabitants live outside the tourist season. We went 2 trips with Kostas, first seeing the north side of the island, from East coast to West coast. The second time we went to the Southern part of the Island, off-road to Porto Katsiki. Visiting an olive museum and 2 towns in the southern part of the island.

Kostas gave us an amazing experience of the Island, a rental car would nowhere near be the same.

I'd highly recommend this trip. Kostas was great. He arrived right on time, minimal hassle. Usually he leaves from Nidri but was very accommodating and picked us up from our hotel in Vasiliki. Great driver (never felt worried), comfortable Land Rover, interesting and helpful info about the history and culture of the island. Kostas grew up here, and shared his knowledge of the island with enthusiasm without being overbearing. He took us to some stunning spots that we'd never have discovered on our own. Lovely little touches like picnic and coffee enhanced the experience. He knows lots of people on the island and it was fun to meet some locals. We even got a bonus visit to his cousin's honeybee hives, which was fascinating. Other highlights were visits to Profitis Ilias (outstanding views), coffee and waffles from Rania's in Karia's lovely town square, and a soak in the beautiful waterfalls at Nidri. Definitely a highlight of our two weeks here in Lefkas. It's more expensive if there are only two of you (we paid 150 Euros) but it was worth it, and coffee and waffles were on the house.
Because he picked us up from Vasiliki, there was no off-road driving on our tour, so 'jeep safari' description might not fit with some people's expectations. However, it was an excellent day out that I'd definitely recommend. Bring swimwear and clothes that allow you to go from the top of a mountain to the beach.

A wonderful day around the island of Lefkas to spectacular secret spots that you would not find by yourself. Kostas our driver was an amazing driver and the home made sandwiches was delicious.

Lefkas Jeep Safari is a must if you wish to visit off the beaten track Lefkas with the most knowledgeable and interesting tour guide I have ever met. Kostas is a lovely genuine person who is obviously very passionate about his island. We visited many places including an old monestary a beautiful church on the islands highest point, saw wells for feeding animals, the old island capital, beautiful beaches we also saw how olives, grapes, lentils, beans and wild oregano grow. There were also swimming stops and time for lunch. Included in the price were baguettes made by Kostas wife and refreshments at a local taverna. Thank you Kostas for one of the best trips I have ever done!
