  • We were collected from our hotel and taken to the HQ to collect our jeep. There were a lot of people on the tour so a large convey. You are paired up with another couple (4 total in jeep) this is done by proximity of hotels rather than people who speak the same language which was a little strange as meant some people couldn’t speak to each other within the jeep! This tour was fantastic and brilliant to see behind the scenes of Crete and away from the main towns. The jeeps are difficult to drive and are fairly small. The seats can’t be moved and the clutch was difficult but that made it all part of the fun! The views from the tour were gorgeous. You make it to the south side of the island to a gorgeous beach but the same can’t be said about the lunch! But hey we didn’t do the experience for the food! Would recommend!
  • Excellent, Had a fantastic guide called Jason , plenty of laughs along the way , very informative about Crete and it’s traditions looked after the entire group no expense spared to make the day enjoyable, highly recommend
  • The jeep safari was an amazing experience to get an impression of the beautiful nature that Crete has to offer. The lunch that was included fitted with the style of the tour and was well organized. Many thanks to our guide Dimitris for the information, laughs and service. It was a privilege to ride together!
  • Great sight-seeing in Kreta. Get great facts about the location. Great safari experience with great beaches to explore
  • What an experience 👏 from our driver Dennis 🤣 to the amazing views and what lead to an unforgettable day would 100% recommend this activity if here. But big shout out to our driver who taught us a lot and made the day memorable
  • Amazing experience! We booked this tour having been torn between the jeep and the quad trip but we are so glad we booked the jeep. The whole day was really well organised and you were given enough time at all the stops to enjoy it. The food provided was great, a real Greek experience and a good vegetarian option, which is rare! Dimitri was our guide and he's brilliant. He's really fun and charming and makes you feel safe whilst driving the jeeps. The tour would not have been the same without him. You get to experience a different side to Crete, going up the side of mountains, and when they say it's off roading, it really is. We drove along rocky/dusty roads that you'd normally avoid! The jeeps were really good for getting you about, not the comfiest but you don't go on a off roading jeep safari for comfort! The beaches you get to go to are amazing, and not something you'd see if you didn't do the safari. Just wish there was an option to not have to share with another couple/person so you didn't have to share the driving! Would highly recommend and would do it again
  • We could see many nice places. We had a good guide named Dimitri, who explained us many things! It was a nice day.
  • This is not normally something we would do on a holiday but was recommended by my hotel and boy we were glad we went on this trip. The views were spectacular and we could watch the fauna (goats and vultures) all day long. We were joined on our trip with a groups from Belgium who were great company for the day. Even though the driving was fun sharing the driving led to better sight seeing. I am always amazed and envious watching guides change language with our guide effortlessly changing from German to English to Greek. As a side note we also couldn’t fault lunch. All in all a perfect day. Would highly recommend this outfit.
  • We did the jeep safari yesterday and our driver Yannis was the perfect tour guide. Friendly and informative, he told us lots about the nature and wildlife along the way. The scenery was amazing and there were plenty of opportunities to stop for photos. Going by jeep was the perfect opportunity to go off-road a day see the real Crete. The mountain roads were pretty scary at times but we felt completely safe with Yannisnat the wheel. The beaches wee stunning too, especially Preveli beach. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Thank you Yannis and Co for a great day out!
  • We had a fantastic day tour visiting different places we would never be able to find by ourselves. For us the highlight of the tour was our driver and guide Dimitri. He gave us not only so many interesting information but provided us with all the answers to our questions always with a smile on his face. Thank you for these great memories ☺️
  • 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!
