The trip to the Richtis Waterfall was just amazing. Our guide was already waiting in front of our hotel before we came out - very punctual. During the trip he told us so much about crete, he has great knowledge on almost everything: mythology, nature, culture. Ask the guide anything and he will most certainly know the answer. You need to do a little hiking to reach the waterfall, but nothing too scary. Just take some good shoes with you. Sneakers will do. The waterfall itself is so beautiful. We were able to swim in the little lake as much as we wanted while our guide waited patiently for us. The lunch in a local restaurant was very tasty. All in all the trip was totally worth it. We learned a lot and had a good time. Can totally recommend it!
We had a great time with our driver “Gary the Goat Killer”. Did everything he could to keep us occupied and informed. The sights, driving, lunch were all great. Only downside was the stop at the Cave of Zeus. Did the climb up to it. Couldn’t get in as the cue was too long for the time allowed. So it was a waste of time and energy. For those who couldn’t make the climb there wasn’t much to see or do for the hour we had at the stop. May be worth dropping that part of the tour.
We had THE BEST, most authentic day on our tour with Petra. On the day of the tour, we had just spent 3 days in Athens and ten days in Crete and thought we had seen and learned it all... but Petra was the sweetest, most informative guide I’ve ever met! We enjoyed fresh, local food and we were shown a side of Greece we only wished for. Definitely our best day of the whole trip by far!
Gary, our guide, is a British ex-pat who has lived for years in a small village on Crete. He is a fountain of knowledge on the flora, fauna, history, culture, geography, etc. of Crete. He also has a great sense of humor and kept us laughing through the entire day. Crete is one of the most interesting Greek islands and this Jeep Safari is absolutely the best way to see it.
Guides were very accommodating and informative offered alot of information regarding crete culture and history of the area. scenic drive through the mountains had spectacular views. The cave formations were incredible. The food was very tasty.
