This was absolutely lovely concept and tour. The best part that you actually get to experience the REAL Crete and its "hidden" locations instead of sitting in overfilled buses and boats to the beach. Very relaxing tour, people are very attentive, kind and happy to host, the transport is as good as its gets and so was a guide Andreas. It felt like he was our local Kretan friend taking us around his other friends. Side note tho: even if its not officially food trip, its probably better not to have breakfast as you would be snacking quite a bit. Other than that, after this trip i feel like i have more intimate insight of what Crete has to offer and the values of the locals (something we tried to achieve with other tours) which made me appreciate it way more than just another holiday destination with 3 popular beaches. For that we are very grateful! Next time we will go on the wine and olive oil tour

Mostly there’s not much thing we had to take care due our tour guide’s absolutely reliable professionalism. Also, pro tip to not bring many water bottle, ‘cause you can find fountains at certain rest areas and refill. Backpack, sportshoes recommended. Pay attention to the given map carefully! Have cash by yourself for tickets later!!

Very long and very hot, exhausting day but so worth it to visit the gorge! Please be prepared with actual hiking shoes or you will not make it through the entire hike. Water is frequently available at rest areas on the journey. The gorge is worth it and beautiful!

We had a wonderful time today with Andreas on our tour. We got to see a part of Crete that many overlook, the local areas. Loved the visit to the distillery, the museum was quite nice, the bakery was amazing, and overall, a great trip.
