Absolutley excellent tour, totalt Amazing! Wonderful crew, Stavros the driver and Christos the guide. Great team who were taking the best care of us. The tour was perfectly planned. First a stop for coffee/drinks/ice cream/breakfast in a small café, then off to Elafonissi where we got 4 hours of free time. Christos gave us tips where to go for the best spot. After 4 hours we drove to a wonderful village to eat. The restaurant was amazing! Genuine good greek food. Buy the liquor! Then off to see the magical cave. Worth the effort to get up there. All in all one of the best tours we have EVER been on! Would recommend it to everyone!!! Elafonissi is a must in Crete. Thanks to Markidis travel!
Perfect day-trip for a small group of persons. It is highly recommended. Christos, our guide, explained very interesting details about Crete and our excursion, and Stavros, our driver, drove us safely to Elafonissi and had good music in the car. Both were really helpful and kind with us. The excursion was really worth, there were not so many tourists, the sun was there, the water was transparent and hot to swim in it, and the sand was really pink. The restaurant and the cave on the way back were also worth the trip. I highly recommend this tour and thank our two nice guide and driver!
This was an amazing trip. The guide was really nice and accommodating. He made sure everyone was always doing well. We even stopped for painkillers for someone who wasn’t feeling well. We got some interesting facts about Crete along the way, and everything was well organized. The guide gave us tips on where to go on the beach. This led us to a smaller area, where the sand was very pink, and it wasn’t crowded at all. On our way home, we stopped by a small village with a restaurant recommended by the guide. I couldn’t ask for anything else. Everything was perfect!
Cristos and Stavros were great on the tour. We felt completely safe with Stavros at the wheel, but other tourists had told us that Elafonissi trips were just transfers really and there wasn't much more to them. This tour was very different and so much more thanks to Cristos our guide. The lunch in Elos on the way back was one of our best meals of the holiday. The cave visit too was fascinating. Great day out guys!
Great experience! The only hiccup we had was out of the control of our guides. There was a soccer team on our tour that were very late and wasted a lot of our time and had no consideration for the rest of the people on the bus. However, our tour guides did their best to keep the day running smoothly and for that, we are very appreciative. Overall, a fantastic day with fantastic weather!
