This experience was fun! The ambiance and people are welcoming Thank you Gregory Hakim and the other guy (sorry I don’t know his name!) for this great day in the mountains. About the horses they are kind and obediently I got Pamela Anderson (bc obvs I’m tall) no accident no problem! So don’t be afraid about the horses! All the animals got funny names by the way ! I let yall know by yourself Thank you to Gregory’s wife for the Greek dishes it was tasty but the meat ball was everything for me ! I recommended 100% They picked you to your hotel and drop you at the end of the activity to your hotel. About the rhythm you go slowly with the group but if you want to do some galop you can do it during the break ! ευχαριστώ (πολύ) means Efcharisto poly!
It was an excellent morning. Ideal for complete beginners, families and children. They show you how to ride and hold your horse throughout if you'd like. The pace of the ride is very slow and the route is safe. If you are a seasoned rider, just sit back and enjoy the scenery. It's more about seeing the countryside than the ride. At the end there is an opportunity to gallop briefly. Gregori and his family are the most welcoming and generous I have ever seen. The lunch is huge so come hungry. They can accommodate dietary requirements. Products are locally grown / sourced. Wine and spirits are included in the lunch. Gregori takes pictures during the ride which he prints on photo paper and you can purchase at the end.
We had a wonderful day out in crete. We were picked up exactly on time and we drove to the plateau. The driver/ guide drove very considered while at the same time telling about Crete, the people and history. We visited the impressive caves after a nice climb. Afterwards we went to the wine tasting. It seemed to me a rather long drive. But the winery was worth it.
I joined this tour with my 14 year old son,we had great time. It was my first time to drive this quad bike,but it was very easy.Andreas was friendly and experienced guide. Lunch we had in a small village at the top of the mountain, tomatoes, cucumbers,cheese, chicken, everything was fresh and tasty. We would really like to do it again.
This was a great way to get a wonderful feel and taste for the wine, olive oil and food in Crete. Our tour guide, Pierre, was so knowledgeable of the wine, the food and the history. Everyone involved worked together to make sure we had a great time. Would definitely recommend to others.
