It was really a great day! We were picked up by car directly at the hotel in Rethymno and then drove about 20-30 minutes to Georgioupolis. There we switched to the Landrover. Since everyone else was already inside, we unfortunately had to sit apart, but that wasn't so bad! The places we visited were really beautiful. At the stops you were always encouraged to buy something. There was honey, olive oil and other souvenirs. When eating you had the choice between different dishes and there was really something for everyone! There was a starter (tzatziki and Greek salad), main course (variable) and a small dessert (fruit and a pudding cake). Everything was delicious except for the dessert! The time on the beach should have been a little longer for my taste, but after the day you were really exhausted! At the end we were taken home to the hotel. We would recommend the tour to everyone!

We absolutely LOVED it! It was well worth the money. The drivers are hilarious! Great jokes said and great fun. They stop off at many places so you get a lot of sight seeing. The beach was beautiful and the food was the best food we ate while in crete. Goodness me. I wouldn’t say no to this trip. The guides are fabulous - Yanis and Costas and others. Thank you for a fabulous time! You all are so kind and do so much for the travelers. Thank you!
