Great tour! My fiancé and I really enjoyed it! Great views at all the stops! Especially enjoyed the sunset on the mountain and the beautiful lake. Sandwich that was included was delish and loved that we enjoyed during the sunset! Guide was informative and always made sure everyone was doing well throughout the tour! There was a compartment on the quad for our backpack which was great. You’ll be supplied with both a helmet and a goggles for the tour. We did the afternoon tour and were glad we brought jackets as it was pretty cold and windy once the sun started to set. A bit dusty and muddy, but we were able to complete the tour without getting any mud on our clothing and shoes (my fiancé took it slow while driving through the puddles). Highly recommend!
The quad tour was mega.! The guide was extremely courteous and the price / performance ratio was great. Of the 4 hours, about 2.5 / 3 hours were pure travel time with 3 larger stops for breaks and sights. I am very satisfied and got my money's worth. Different terrain from road to off-road to water crossings! Top!
The tour is well organized, you don't lose a lot of time anywhere (e.g. ticket issue) and can therefore enjoy the hike and nature. However, there is a lot of rush in the gorge, you tend to hike in single file. The gorge is still spectacular. Don't forget your swimming trunks when you arrive at Agia Roumeli.
Such an amazing tour with a personal touch. You get to visit a hidden gem in Crete which was the most beautiful place we visited on the whole holiday, and no other tours include this. Not to be missed!! You also do not take up too much time travelling.
Our guide, Orestes, was excellent by providing tips on how to walk down the gourge.
