Wir hatten einen seht schönen Tag. Rolf hat uns sicher durch die Stadt und auf die Berge kutschiert, hat uns viel von der kretischen Natur gezeigt und hatte für unsere Wünsche die passende spontane Idee. Vielen lieben Dank!

Our tour guide, Emmanuel, was informative and friendly. He was quite thoughtful and kept checking in on my daughter who is prone to car sickness. The car was clean and comfortable. He took us to a wonderful, scenic lunch spot that was both delicious and welcoming. The Lathisi Plateau was beautiful, and he even took us to some smaller villages with unique, awe inspiring features (like a tree that is centuries old and an ancient Venetian aqueduct). Our tour and time spent with Emmanuel was a highlight for our time in Crete.
