This experience was packed full of interesting activities and adventures! Our guide, Kostas, was very friendly and seemed very passionate about the job. We first went to a lake and a monastery where we learned about early food production, and had an amazing breakfast of Raki, bread and olive oil and rusks with honey. We then started to go up into the mountains which was an amazing experience. The food at the taverna at lunch was delicious and it was great to have some time to be on the beach. We visited many different paces and learnt so much about the fascinating ancient history of crete. Thank you so much for a brilliant day!
We were warmly welcomed by Michaelis and his wife. After a short introduction to the bikes the adventure began. The tour was very varied with lots of stops at interesting and beautiful local places and also personal stories from Michaelis. He is a very experienced and passionate guide, who always has a smile on his face and can give many insider tips for further holiday trips. All in all it was such a nice and fun trip with great impressions, views and a delicious lunch that some days later we've booked the next trip there - the advanced trip to Patsos gorge :) Many greetings from Berlin, Mandy and Michael
Everything was organised very well. We were picked up from near where we stayed and driven to the start of the gorge. Had to buy our own tickets. Make sure you have cash before you leave because the ticket office only accepts cash and there's no ATM anywhere there. Also make sure you have water because, unlike Samaria gorge, there is no water anywhere inside. You can wait at a tavern on the other side for your bus which will take you to the sea. We only had about an hour to get to the beach, swim, change and come back but it was enough. The bus then took us all home. Great experience!
The best safari we’ve been on and we have been on a lot! Costas our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable nothing to much as long as we were having a great time! Lunch was so tasty better than the norm with lots of choices. If your going to do one trip make it this one!
I enjoyed every single moment of this wonderful trip. The Old Town of Chania is definitely one of the jewels of Crete, very romantic atmosphere. The natural beauty of Falasarna is simply breathtaking, amazing beach with whitish sand and crystal clear water.
