A day trip out into the mountains with Flowers of Crete isn't cheap, but it is an unforgettable experience whatever the time of year. The trip was in April and the weather was perfect. Trips are by jeep along a dirt track and it is possible not to see another tourist all day.. The flowers were amazing, there were orchids galore, as well as all sorts of flowers that are grown in gardens in UK. Here they grow wild! There is also a chance to see vultures, eagles and buzzards - lots of them. At the end of the trip visitors are taken to a taverna in the mountains where there is a chance to sample a great traditional meal. With such spectacular views, amazing wild flowers and bird life, the photo opportunities are endless. If you are interested in wild life and flowers,this is the best day out ever. Peter and Sue
