We had a lovely day with Julie, she took us to beautiful places that we would have never discovered by ourselves, including some with breathtaking views. Our day trip was in August so they weren't many flowers to see, and yet the experience was unforgettable. We highly recommend it to anyone who would like to discover the region around Elounda.

My husband and I spent the most wonderful day with Julia in her jeep, we enjoyed it so much that the time just flew away. We were collected from our accomodation and returned there at the end of the day which was great. We had coffee and lunch in some lovely little tavernas and visited places during the day, including... More

We went on two trips with Julia and I have to say, despite the weather not being good we had an amazing time. Julia takes you to places you would not otherwise get to see. Her knowledge is encyclopaedic, but she tailors the trip to suit all levels of knowledge. I must say, we have been on many excursions in... More

The most exciting and memorable day for myself and my wife during a marvellous fortnight in Eastern Crete in early April - roads up to mountain villages we would not have dared to attempt in our hire car, at least 7 different species of orchids, Minoan tombs, a remote Byzantine church ,an excellent taverna lunch and amazing landscapes - with...

Peter and I had such a wonderful day with Julia high up in the mountains away from the hustle and bustle of Cretan life. We saw the most amazing flowers and butterflies that we would otherwise have never seen if we had been on our own. Thank you Julia for making our stay even more special. We look forward to... More

This was a unique trip and experience made memorable by our guide Julia. We got to places and sights well away from the main tourist trails and her knowledge of the abundance of wild flowers in bloom was impressive. We also had ample time to look around by ourselves and to have a meal prepared with fresh local produce. Good... More

It was our second day in Crete. As flower lovers, with a special taste for orchids, we had an exiting experience on the previous day – so we built high expectation on this morning. Our first stop was for view from the top on the excavations of an ancient Minoan town in Gournia: an impressive sight – but this trip... More
