This was a fun, interesting, and interactive experience. We were lucky to have Darrel as our driver. He taught us so much about the surrounding area, about how cheese is made, the local culture and history, and had us finding griffen vultures. It was a good balance between on and off road driving. We learned a lot and laughed a lot and saw parts of the island of Crete that we never would have seen without doing this tour. I highly recommend this activity, especially if you can request Darrel as your driver.
The bus driver and guide were great and the guide pointed out many spots along our drive to Elafonisi and spoke about the history of the island. It is a long day (pickup at 6:30am, drop off after 7pm) but it was a great way to get to Elafonisi if you don't plan on driving there and we got to spend 5 hours at Elafonisi which was amazing. The bus ride there was comfortable but it did not have a toilet and there is only 1 stop on the way there so just be prepared for that.
The trip was amazing. In contrast to the North beach part of the Creta the trip takes you to the mountains, full of green, small villages and interesting places. Our guide - Leonidas, was perfect. He told us many interesting information about the Creta, local people, mythology and also herb. I would higly recommend this trip. Just one point. The trip starts about 8 AM and the lunch is about 2 PM. Take some snacks and water.
The trip was absolutelly great, we had a very nice driver and we seen really a lot from Creete despite small rain.
Darryl was a fantastic driver and guide. He is very knowledgeable about local flora and fauna.
