Good experience! You will first be picked up by a small minibus near the hotel and then transferred to a larger coach. From Heraklion it takes a little under 3 hours from pick-up to arrival Preveli with a break in between. The large bus was comfortably air-conditioned and the ride was quiet too. Overall, the trip was on schedule and well organized. The guide was very friendly and in between gave valuable information about the area in different languages. Preveli is a beautiful place with many palm trees and a visit is recommended. The descent/ascent is rocky but can also be done with good flip-flops.
I really wanted to know a little more about the life of the Cretan people, their everyday life. Certainly, the best choice was this Land Rover safari in the central part of Crete from Rethymno to the coast of Preveli. I don't want to reveal all the details ☺️, but you should know that Dionysos, our driver, managed the whole day very professionally, many real stories, and facts about the island, but most importantly; Dionysos has a good sense of humor. The whole day is an unforgettable experience in my life. Thanks Dionysos!
It was a fun and amazing tour through the mountains of Crete to the palm beach of Prevelli. Lunch in a cozy tavern was delicious and there was plenty of it. Our tour guide Nico told us a lot about Crete including herbalism. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
an excellent experience with the competence and good humor of Dionysis - present and considerate throughout this day rich in discoveries
Everything went as planned and they didn't promise too much :)
