Full description
Your tour starts with a drive down a beautiful off-road track that will lead you away from the city. After an hour of driving, arrive at a small village and take a walk to visit a Byzantine church and old primary school. Here, you will enjoy some Cretan hospitality as you are welcomed into a 500-year-old Cretan home. You will be served Greek coffee and a local pastry handmade by the beloved ‘Aunt Soula’ before continuing your adventure. After coffee, get back in your jeep and head to the south coast of the island. You’ll follow an adventurous route with mesmerizing views all the way to the beach. Hop in the water for a refreshing swim before sitting down for a delicious Cretan buffet. Your last stop will be the popular beachfront center of Plakia. Enjoy some free time for shopping or a coffee, before heading back to Rethymno through the breathtaking "Kourtaliotiko" canyon - where you can take some of the most amazing photos of the day.

    Thank you for the nice day and the really enjoyable trip to the south of Crete. We saw different landscape and animals (for example goat's, sheep's and eagle's). The most impressive was the beautiful beach. Only our tour was there. So we were 8 people on a long sand beach. Thank you to the really nice and friendly guide's, too. We will come back on another holiday. ❤️ Diana & Steffen
