This day trip with our amazing guide Dimitris was absolutely perfect!! Dimitris picked us up in a very nice, very comfortable 4x4 and we headed out to two of the most gorgeous beaches ever! First we picked up a lovely couple… Jim and Janice from South Carolina from the port, and then headed off in our 4x4 to head up to the STUNNING Balos Beach!! Now let me start by saying that the road up to this place is no joke… In fact even sitting in the backseat I was a bit intimidated when I looked to my right and saw that we were literally on t as a bit intimidated when I looked to my right and saw that we were literally on the side of a cliff and the terrain was extremely rocky so I can’t lie… It was a bit scary! But… I have faith that Dimitrios knew exactly what he was doing and he would get us there alive LOL On the way up we got to listen to quite a bit of interesting information about the island of Crete!
Great tour! My fiancé and I really enjoyed it! Great views at all the stops! Especially enjoyed the sunset on the mountain and the beautiful lake. Sandwich that was included was delish and loved that we enjoyed during the sunset! Guide was informative and always made sure everyone was doing well throughout the tour! There was a compartment on the quad for our backpack which was great. You’ll be supplied with both a helmet and a goggles for the tour. We did the afternoon tour and were glad we brought jackets as it was pretty cold and windy once the sun started to set. A bit dusty and muddy, but we were able to complete the tour without getting any mud on our clothing and shoes (my fiancé took it slow while driving through the puddles). Highly recommend!
We had a great time on this adventure. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and did the whole tour in two languages (english and german). He made the trip super fun for us. We would highly recommend this excursion to others.
It was an interesting and enjoyable outing. We experienced beautiful mountainous countryside, great local food and drinks. Our driver/guide was amazing!
Very nice trip with swimming in the waterfall as the highlight. Petra is of course also a fantastic guide.
