    Going out to sea with pirate music and big waves. The whole crew was very kind and funny. A captain who dances like a professional and a crew that cares and takes care of you.

    Emanuel deserves 6 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
    He speaks great English and he has wonderful stories about the island and life. I had a great time on the tour all over the island. He showed us some of “real” parts of Crete not only the touristy havens. Goats, windmills, lovely old ladies and their embroidery…the cave was a cave, but the lunch was spectacular!! So good I would go twice more before being full enough for another restaurant. An amazing tour guide with a lot of creativity and experience!

    Akrivi was amazing and so knowledgeable! She really brought the mythology and Minoan experience to life. She was an amazing storyteller and even shared what we would see at the archeological museum and she was correct. She tied it all
    together for us. I highly recommend!

    Kostas was a fantastic tour guide. Kept us engaged and laughing. He was knowledgeable about the locations and was flexible in helping us tailor it to our preferences. The cretan snacks were a delightful surprise and we loved brainstorming new honey flavour combos with him. This is the only tour you need in Heraklion.

    What a great experience. Went with my lad who is 10 and we both loved it. I chose to do the half day, although after heading up the mountain, I felt like I wanted to keep going as it's so much fun navigating the winding roads and taking in the beautiful scenery. Our guide for the trip was Dimitry and he was excellent, had a good chat with him at the various stops and he had a wealth of knowledge to share about the mountains, history and Crete in general. If I return to Crete I would certainly do it again.

    It was a wonderful moment with a very nice crew. Thanks to them we lived a dream. The food during the cruise was very tasty and the animation was so good, we had a fun moment adding to a great view and some activities (snorkeling, etc). I recommend this cruise.

    All we hoped & more Some mbrs booked private that left our 5 w/private guide. He was very knowledgeable & detailed hx & was able to add extra stops & details that added depth and further understanding to much of Minoan society, Venetians, Ottomans, and other Greeks. Brava Highly Recommend!

    This is a great experience if you’re someone who wants to learn more about wine and are willing to get off your high horse (as some of the other reviews suggest otherwise!)

    The vineyard is stunning. You get the opportunity to sit in a beautiful elevated patio overlooking the sensational Cretian mountains and vineyard.

    You’re also told some information about the wines (we tried 5 in total), and get a complimentary charcuterie board which compliments the flavours nicely.

    All in all, a great experience. Would recommend!

    Excellent tour guide with great insight about Greek culture. Fantastic dedicated driver—always felt safe even in challenging areas. Nice air-conditioned Mercedes van with plenty of water and beer. This is an all day tour and involves a bit of walking. Will admit that we had not trained for the hike up to the Cave of Zeus—it’s a km at 20* incline, so it takes a bit of work but totally worth the effort. One can hire a donkey to carry you up if desired. After exploring the cave, you return to a beautiful outdoor tavern for an excellent lunch (not included in fee)—MUST try the lamb. My wife is not a fan of lamb but even she loved it—not gamey at all. Knossos was also wonderful—our guide arranged for a separate professional guide of the Palace. She was extremely knowledgeable with an eye for the shady spots. The entire tour was full of beauty, culture and humor—lots of scenic stops and photo opportunities. Highly recommend!
