Really enjoyed the Jeep Safari, it was very well run and covered a good mix of terrain. A lot of off road sections which were great fun but not that tricky so no problem if you've never driven on rough roads before. The guide, Dimitri, was great and customer service was excellent. The WhatsApp messaging to arrange pickup location and time worked a treat. Highly recommended.

The guide was on time to pick us up. The jeep was clean and well maintained. While traveling the beautiful countryside, the guide provided background on any historical sites along with answers to any of our questions. The views were breathtaking and we were allowed to stop and take pictures to remember this once in a lifetime experience. We were also given suggestions on places to eat and visit that only a local would know. You can tell that Discovery Safari is the original provider of tours and has been doing excursions for years. I would recommend this trip to someone who wants a unique and custom experience of Rethymno.

Une expérience à faire indéniablement. Cependant attention que sur le site GYG tous les avis sont mélangés sans distinction selon les excursions. Donc je m'attendais à avoir un peu de conseils sur la conduite en jeep...pas du tout. Et pour quelqu'un qui ne l'a jamais fait ça reste assez difficile de suivre le rythme des guides. J'ai eu beaucoup de chance de tomber avec un couple adorable et qui connaissait très bien la conduite en 4*4. C'était une journée intense avec beaucoup d'étapes et on en prend plein les yeux. par contre je cherche toujours le fait que vous mentionnez que c'est une excursion accessible aux personnes en fauteuil roulant...euh. Non pas du tout sauf pour rester dans la jeep sans bouger de la journée. Étant moi même atteinte de sclérose en plaques je suis attentive à ce genre de détails. C'est une journée physiquement éprouvante avec beaucoup de marche malgré tout sur des terrains difficiles. Le rythme est très serré du coup c'est assez fatigant.
