    We had a fantastic trip with Dimitris! He's an excellent guide with a lot of knowledge of the history of Crete and Greece, as well as an impressive knowledge of the local fauna and flora. He definitely went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and not only experience the tour, but also throw in extra interesting facts on top to make it a truly educative adventure. 100% recommend to anyone visiting the island

    All three of us in our group had a marvelous time. Everything about our day was excellent from start to finish. Our guide Dimitris was full of fun, knowledge and the most gracious host as was his boss who came to greet us. The tour was a lovely mix of driving, site seeing, information touring, relaxing, tastings, refreshments, meal and timing was just right.
