What people are saying about Anissaras

Our experience with Safari Experts was amazing from start to finish ! We were picked on time at our hotel and George our guide made the whole experience fun and entertaining. !On the way to the cave, George stopped at different photo stops so we can take pics. He picked different types herbs and explained what they were. He also picked fresh fruits along the way. Zeus cave was awesome. and our lunch was delicious. We stopped at farm and milked a goat and had fresh cheese. It was the best part of our trip ! Thank you!

We had an incredible time, our guide (I think he’s name was Andreas) was so happy to be able to show us around it almost felt like it wasn’t a job for him, just something he loves to do! Even when we arrived to Zeus Cave and learnt it was closed he was quick to think on his feet and took us high up in the mountains to admire truly amazing views so we didn’t even feel like we missed out on anything! One of the best day trips I ever been to!

It was just great from the first second when we picked it up to the end! class team. Great atmosphere. We learned a lot about Crete. Andreas and Marius are so welcoming. Mood was 1a! Food was great. We will never forget the experience! Always my pleasure! Warm greetings

Great excursion, 1h30 in Nikolaos, 1h30 in Elumba, 1h on the island and 20min at sea on the boat to swim. Very good day, I advise you!

Great trip, highly recommend. Spinalonga is a must see!
