    Unsere Tour mit dem Guide Thomas brachte eine willkommene Abwechslung zu den Strandtagen. Der Tag war sehr abwechslungsreich gestaltet, das Landesinnere bringt völlig neue Eindrücke, man gewinnt einen guten Eindruck vom Leben in den Bergdörfern, der durch sehr viel Informationen zu Fauna Flora, Geschichte, Alltagsleben durch Thomas noch vertieft wurde. Die Tourführung war sehr umsichtig, die kleine Gruppengröße ideal. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis passt. Das Mittagessen in der Taverne bei der Zeushöhle war von sehr guter Qualität und die off-road Passagen im Landrover machten viel Spaß und brachte uns in Gegenden, die mit dem Mietauto nicht zu erreichen sind. Der Tour kann auf jeden Fall empfohlen werden.

The sommelier, Stefanos, was very generous with his time, his knowledge, and his good humour, and that all made for a very enjoyable tour and tasting. Lunch by the seaside was nice too, and we got to know our tour guide (Spyros) better... he gave us a recommendation for a wine bar in Athens (Oinoscent) which we enjoyed visiting as well, and followed up by sending us more information about Greek wine once we were home.

Our guide Leonidas was super nice and entertained us well throughout the tour. Every now and then he stopped briefly to pick herbs from the roadside and we could then guess what it was. He made the tour interesting with anecdotes and funny stories. Always gave us enough time to explore the places we visited and took care of everything.

Excellent Activity, I highly recommend, very pleasant traditional meal, magnificent landscapes, the guide explains very well the history of the lassithi plateau and the cave of Zeus, and as a bonus if you like goats you will be delighted to stop in a sheepfold in the middle of the mountains.

very beautiful day, our guide Yannis was very interesting, and to see fascinating not stingy with anecdote and explanations on Crete and its inhabitants Just a point, it is planned in your "leaflet" the visit of the cave of ZEUS, on the field is not planned
