It was an extreme experience !! I would do it a thousand times more ... if you like to fill yourself with dirt and adrenaline this tour is for you !! The road they found for the tour is the best !! The views from the mountain, the passages in the small creeks all great! It can be done without problems of 2 people there is enough time to share the wheel! Wear comfortable clothes! And don't forget your desire to get dirty! The owner is very friendly and is willing to explain more than once if you need it !!!

My partner and I really enjoyed this activity and our tour guide (he was Canadian) was great with a good sense of humour! The sights are amazing, you drive for quite a while so it’s well worth the money. Only thing is that when booking I did state one of us was a pescatarian but the sandwiches provided were all turkey. This wasn’t enough of a problem though for me to give 4 instead of 5 stars as I didn’t come to eat! You’ll get very dusty so make sure not to wear your good clothes and shoes!

Super nice buggy ride

Have been in trouble to find the meeting place, came to pick me up without problem whew and thank you! Very nice home ! Very good coaching and with a smile! Pleasant walk in the Cretan mountains with 2 breaks. By cons, I was slightly too small 1m59 to drive the buggy and press 3h hours on the accelerator hyper stretched leg, it was not obvious! In the end, having also tested, the quad suits me much better.
