Reviews!

Thank you for submitting your review

Nice drive and trip

We are staying in Hersonissos, so it is quite a drive to do this tour, this could be the advantage though as you get to see most of Crete, sitting comfortably and enjoyed the drive towards west. The day trip it self is very good, perhaps too much talking (guide) but polite, smiley and quality in all aspects. All family enjoyed it, was safe and fun, get to see beautiful beaches and nice scenery, recommended.
