Our experience could not have been any better! Andreas was a perfect host sharing cultural and historical highlights on our drive. He took excellent care to ensure all went well. The bay was breathtaking and the beach time and delicious lunch afterwards rounded out a lovely and picture perfect day. Thank you!

I have enjoyed the trip very much…Dimitris picked me up near my hotel in a 4WD at 8:30am in the morning. First we have been to Balos lagoon where we walked up a hill overlooking the lagoon. The view was stunning and after taking some pictures there, we continued to Falassarna beach where we spent the rest of the day. At Falassarna, we had sun beds and we could go for a swim. We had lunch at 2:30pm and then returned to Chania. Overall I had a fantastic time and I particularly enjoyed talking with Dimitris and learning from him about Cretan and Greek culture and history.

This day trip with our amazing guide Dimitris was absolutely perfect!! Dimitris picked us up in a very nice, very comfortable 4x4 and we headed out to two of the most gorgeous beaches ever! First we picked up a lovely couple… Jim and Janice from South Carolina from the port, and then headed off in our 4x4 to head up to the STUNNING Balos Beach!! Now let me start by saying that the road up to this place is no joke… In fact even sitting in the backseat I was a bit intimidated when I looked to my right and saw that we were literally on t as a bit intimidated when I looked to my right and saw that we were literally on the side of a cliff and the terrain was extremely rocky so I can’t lie… It was a bit scary! But… I have faith that Dimitrios knew exactly what he was doing and he would get us there alive LOL On the way up we got to listen to quite a bit of interesting information about the island of Crete!
