    1. Georgioupolis Full-Day Land Rover Safari Experience

    Hop in a 4x4 vehicle for a full-day safari adventure, where you will learn about Cretan traditions and indulge in delicious food. Visit an old village with a Byzantine Church, a café with traditional Cretan products like herbs, raki and honey, historical museums, a secluded beach, a family winery and an olive oil factory. Climb to an altitude of 1,200 meters, where you will experience the quietness of the White Mountains and Cretan dances in a fascinating landscape. If you’re lucky, vultures will take your breath away with their imposing appearance. Find an old castle connected to a myth, swim in the pristine waters of the South Cretan Sea and taste traditional dishes from a family tavern.

    The trip was great, especially for people who want to experience other face of Crete, not so turistic and crowded. If you like moutains and small villages, great views and wild animals, this trip is for you! :)

    Wonderful and intimate tour! We were able to see the oldest olive tree in the world on a family-owned farm, then travel to Anoskeli winery where we tried olive oil and wines from the winery. The olive oil was the best we have ever had. We then traveled to a lovely restaurant for lunch, where our meals were already ordered and we were able to try traditional Cretan food like stuffed zucchini flowers (our personal favorite). We were shown around the countryside as well, and while it was good amount of driving, the views were fantastic! There were supposed to be 4 of us, but the other couple did not show up so we got a personal tour from George who was incredible!

The experience was much better than I expected. Everyone was so incredibly relaxed and accommodating despite a series of changes I needed to make to my bookings. I had also booked the Discover scuba with them and I couldn't believe how incredibly attentive and patient Julie was. The interaction with everyone in Omega Divers was very pleasent and relaxed. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Had a beautiful and relaxing morning on the boat, snorkelling and stand up paddle boarding. Fraya was a lovely instructor and even accommodated my sister who couldn’t go in the water. Would absolutely recommend!

Very good! We went to three different places, one of them where we could use the paddle boards and two of them we snorkled. Everything was very good, would recommend!
