One of the best tours ever! Christine and the driver were so accommodating and we felt very spoiled during the trip since the first minute we step in the bus. We were picked up in the agreed time in front of the hotel, we went first to Elafonisi beach before the crowds arrived, it was gorgeous and so worth it before the big buses arrived. They supplied us with various drinks and proper local delicious food in a lunch box. They took us to Falasarna beach and olive oil tasting and to see the the oldest olive tree and museum and taste authentic Greek coffee in a local cafeteria . We also had Lovely Greek lessons on the bus and it’s was a fun trip! The lessons came to hand when we went to a traditional Cretan music festival and we had to speak the basic as there was no tourists there. Great memories made, it was great! Thank you so much Christine and lovely driver that can’t remember the name but equally lovely. Epharisto poli for everything Seabybus! ☺️☺️

This was a wonderfully full day of beautiful sites! The minibus was very comfortable and our driver and tour guide Christine were fun and caring. We learned a lot about Greece and the island of Crete. These beaches, especially Elafonisi, are amazing. The olive tree was impressive and we really enjoyed the Greek coffee and bread with olive oil. We highly recommend this day trip!!

First paradise beach. Second beach very beautiful cove with waves. Beautiful, clear, clean water. Super nice and welcoming Cretans. Tavern and museum near the old olive tree super. We tasted local, Turkish coffee and olive oil bread, so good. Day in minibus, we were pampered by our guide and our driver. Strongly to advise.

Excellent circuit to get to know two beautiful beaches, learn something about Crete, coffee, olive trees and oil. Cristine and the driver are excellent guides. Very good idea to deliver a lunch. It is abundant and rich. Mineral water, drinks, umbrellas and tarps for the beach are available. a spectacular day
