What people are saying about Rethymno

Great trip!!! The team is incredibly nice and caring! The food is delicious - drinks as much as you want! The catamaran and swimming/snorkeling and SUP gear very well maintained. Unfortunately, we had rain and very high waves, so that many got seasick, but they were mothered really well and treated with various means. We all felt very safe and in good hands. And the "healthy" rest had a lot of fun with the waves, good music and fine drinks. Thanks again to the team!

Super organized and a great route chosen! During the breaks you had a wonderful landscape in front of you and time for photos. Equipment (jacket, helmet, goggles) was provided free of charge. The tour was conducted very safely and responsibly. Thanks for the nice experience and the successful photos from the photographer. Dirk and Steffi

Totally recommend this fab safari! A great way to see the rural parts of Crete and mountains. Very good guide, well explained and safety conscious. A good length of time on the quads.
