  • Was an excellent day demetris was very friendly and helpfull and full of information the trip took us off the beaten track to some beautiful places and stunning scenery and was fun driving the 4X4 the food was very nice too and had time to dip my toes with a walk along the beach
  • We did this jeep safari with a group of 20 people, from which 17 with a mental disability. The guides were very helpfull and patient with the group, they told some nice information about the surroundings, consulted with us how much time we wanted at the different stops, were very cheerful and nice to everyone. We really liked the views we stopped at. The off road parts were very nice and a little exciting! The company helped us very well by making good appointments about the pickup and stuff. They were flexible and gave us a private tour because of the big group we were with.
  • Please don't miss this out! Very fun and exciting tour. The guide was super friendly ans helpful. My favourite part was all the stunning landscapes and the south beach it was crazy beautiful Highly recommended
  • Enjoyed off-roading, great food and a very knowledgable guide, Dimitris, he made sure we all had a great time.
  • Great fun with the family, beautiful sights and even a cold beer when driven back to the hotel. Staff is very friendly and everything is well organized. Saw a side of Crete you usually don’t see with you normal rental car and we had a blast! Can highly recommend this excursion.
  • Thank you guys! The trip was awesome, we had a great day❤ we were a whole day on the road, saw stunning spaces,got a delicious meal and had time to swim. In a nutshell: damn good!
  • Amazing trip and very well organised by highly professional staff. I highly recommend it to all of you.
  • My husband and I booked the full day luxury safari to the south rim. The places we visited were all really scenic and great places to visit. Each stop was about the right amount of time so we didn't feel rushed or bored. Our tour guide George was informative and friendly and spoke good English. The jeep was comfortable and spacious, especially as there were only four of us.
  • We had a great safari with Dimitri yesterday who has a wealth of knowledge of the local flora, fauna, history and geology. Despite having hired a car for the week, we saw views , buildings and places that we would never have found by ourselves. Highly recommended!
  • The Jeep Safari with our guide Giannis was a really unforgettable experience, the most impressive day of our holiday. We started in Rethymnon and the way led us in the south of Crete. We had the chance to visit a very small village, a cave chapel and we saw very old olive trees and goats in the mountains. Although most af the stretch was off-road we always trust Giannis who had everything under control. Thanks so much for everything what Giannis and Dimitri told us. Especially many thanks to Giannis for his hospitality during the next days. We wish you and your family all the best. Greetings from your friends with the „special pizza“ from Vienna, Austria.
  • Picked up at 09. 30, off in our jeeps within about 20 minutes. Lots of driving on dirt tracks and mountain roads. Plenty of photo stops , breaks and amazing places to see. You will not see the real Crete from a tour bus or hire car. This trip takes you up into the mountains with just buzzards and bees for company, then down to a beautiful unspoiled beach for a great lunch and fantastic swim in crystal, wave free water with plenty time to swim, snorkel or Sunbathe. You do also get to face along main roads in convoy so rallying or formula 1, you get both in one trip. Well informed guides who do look after you. It is not a day for the nervous driver, especially those who normally drive on the left as the expectation is that you will keep up and go off road with no problem and not be out off by deep gorges a few inches from your wheels. If you can cope with that you will have a fantastic time.
  • Great and if you in Crete you have to try the discovery Safaris worth every penny there one thing you shouldn’t miss
  • Great, exciting and very recommendable tour - we have booked the tour via our Hotel and had the pleasure to drive with Dimitrios who explained everything and also was very kind and funny. Thanks for that!!
  • This is our second jeep safari as a family. The company were quick to respond to our emails when arranging pick up from our hotel on booking. The trip took us off road through the mountains, seeing the beautiful areas and wildlife of Crete. Our guide/driver was Yanis who made our tour the best ever, we learnt lots about the areas we drove through (with regular stops to take photos) and we truly enjoyed his company! The beaches were breathtaking, lunch at the tavern overlooking the beach was superb followed by swimming in the sea. Thank you all for your making our Safari truly fun and memorable from beginning to end!
  • The guide was super nice and very funny. He told us about greek traditions and every place we went to was something special. Would recommend for everyone!! You should bring a camera to take photos. Overall a very nice experience!
  • Great experience. Funny and cool guide, Dimitri,showed us the island from its best side. Got picked up and driven back to the hotel. You can tell that theyve done this a couple of times as it was a top notch experience from start to end. Higly recommended and worth every buck!
  • We had an amazing time with discovery safaris ! Dimmitris and George our guides made our day.learned so many interesting facts about Crete !!! Amazing views perfect condition jeeps !!!! Well organized 5 stars are not enough !!!!!
  • We had an amazing day out with this company jeeps were in great condition guider were just perfect overall a must do in Crete
  • Wow! What can I say about our day out with Discovery Safaris, it was an amazing day. We booked independently and did the 8 hour Jeep driving safari where you drive your own jeep in convoy, we were picked up at our hotel and taken to the jeep pick up point which was around 5 minutes away. We spent the day driving up in to the mountains and over to the south coast where we had lunch at a beach side taverna, we then drove back through the countryside to drop the jeeps off and get a transfer back to the hotel. You really get to see the parts of the island you wouldn't ordinarily see on a coach/car tour as the jeeps are able to get up in to the mountains on off road tracks. The views were fantastic and as it was near the end of May the flowers were in bloom which was amazing to see. You see everything on this tour from the gorges to the beaches along with the mountains and lowlands, we had a brilliant day out. We stopped for an hour for lunch at Villa Maria at Ligres beach on the south coast which served lovely food and had great views down the coast then we drove down the coast to Palm Beach before heading back over to the north of the island. It really was an excellent day out and the best tour we did while staying on Crete, I can't recommend this company enough, it was excellent. If you only do one thing on Crete then do this tour, you won't be disappointed.
  • An amazing full day tour !!! Great landscapes cars in mint condition delicious food and a beach at the south that you can fall in love with!!! Thank you Giannis for the amazing experience!!!
  • The trips gives you the opportunity to see parts of Crete that you could / would not be able to access without a Jeep and guide. Well organised professional trip with good friendly informative guides. Lots of stops for photos and some truly stunning scenery. Great lunch included in the cost. Some of the of driving as you would expect as you are going into the mountains takes you on tracks with sheer drops, so consider the luxury safari with a guide driving if this would be an issue for you. I enjoyed the driving as it added to the experience of the day and my wife loved the views. On the flip side and as you would expect my teenage daughter and friend were a little less engaged with the views, but enjoyed the beautiful secluded beach and swim in the Libyan sea!
  • If your doubting to go on a jeep/quad/buggy safari, don't doubt anymore, just book with these guys! Upon arrival you directly have the feeling that you're more then welcome. You get a clear explanation and the trip itself was top quality. Good speed (for experienced and less experienced drivers), nice views, good off-road, and great stops. We even had the chance to be the first to go on the evening jeep-safari and wow, what a sunset and nice tour, the real off-road experience. Special thanks to Dimitri for this! Grtz, Belgian Chocolate
  • It was a really nice trip and I would definitely recommend it. You can enjoy the beautiful island while sitting in the jeep. At some points you stop to make some pictures. We had a personal guide, Jannis or Giannis (don't know it for sure), who learned us a lot about Crete and his history. He was an EXCELLENT guide and a spontaneous guy! He took us off-road if we wanted to see a small village or something. We love you Giannis!
  • We had a nice jeep safari day with our guides Dimitri and George. In the morning we were picked up at our hotel were we brought back satisfied at the end of the day. Driving off road yourself is a great experience. If you do not want to drive yourself, someone will drive for you. Many photo moments with information from the guide about the area with nice views. We had a good lunch also! There is a front and a rear driver in kolone driven, so you do not have to worry about the route.
