Our tour guide Eddie was great. He really made it a memorable experience. Definitely felt like we got to see the real side if rural Crete.
A great day trip with an excellent guide!

I had a wonderful day thanks to the fantastic guide Eddie! For a few days prior it was unclear whether the tour would go ahead due to having too few people signed up, but Eddie provided very good communication and made every effort, going above and beyond both before, during, and even after the tour to give his guests the best experience possible. Fortunately he was able to run the tour in the end despite the low number of guests. During the tour we had occasional bad weather, and the recent earthquakes had closed the cave, but Eddie always had a backup plan to help us make the most of the day, so we didn't feel like we were missing out on anything! His sincerity, entertaining personality, and wealth of information made this a very enjoyable tour that I would absolutely recommend!
Nature and history all at once

This is a phenomenal and fantastically entertaining tour. Eddie is simply the best. One of the best tours I have ever taken. Lots of sites, human interest, history and things you dont normally see. The villages are great. The wind mills are fascinating and the lunch place takes you to is some of the best food we had in Greece. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour, this company and of course Eddie. He keeps the groups small, in fact, he 3 other people booked on this one that had to cancel and he still took me and my wife out. We became friends that day, and I hope to see Eddie again some day!!
Best tour in Greece
, Sep 2021
Eddie was entertaining and informative. We loved learning from him and the olive factory, Zeus cave snd the small towns and sampling the agriculture, especially the strawberry picking. The lunch in Moxos was delightful. Eddie was especially helpful to us in getting our Covid test. He made us feel like we had a old friend in Greece!
The BEST tour we have experienced
, Aug 2021
最高のガイドツアーです。ツアーガイドのエディーはとても陽気で、大変よくもてなしてくれました。私たちはツアーを始めて以来の2グループ目の日本人だったとのことですが、クレタの人々とはとても波長が合うように感じました。ツアー自体はアメリカやロシア、ドイツなどからの来客が多いそうです。5-6人からなる小グループのツアーで構成されており、自由で気配りの行き届いたツアーをしてくれています。車で移動時も飽きさせないトークや地元の背景知識などをわかりやすく話してくれてとても楽しかったです。数えきれないほどの思い出ができましたが、なかでも移動中にたまたま出くわした地元の方に、獲れたてのメロンやキュウリなどをふるまってもらったことが印象的でした。ツアー料金に含まれているジュースやワイン、ランチも大変満足のいくものでしたので、日本の方でイラクリオンへの旅行を計画されている方には是非お勧めいたします。 The BEST guide tour! If you want an experience as if you visit your Cretan friend to take you to his favorite places while sharing tips to enjoy Crete, you should book this tour. Eddie, a guide of this tour, is a very cheerful, knowledgeable, passionate and professional person. He takes care of all participants very well and makes all efforts to make your experience special. One of the most impressive experiences during the tour is that we had fresh fruits and vegetables which were just harvested from trees or fields. All spots he took us were very nice and gave us lots of fun and memories.
A nice day with a friendly guide

Very interesting tour to discover real traditional Crete with a friendly guide. We had a delicious cretan meal at Lithos restaurant in Mochos village. I recommend this tour!
Excellent experience!

Eddie was one of the best guides I have ever had! He was the perfect balance of professional, humorous, generous, and polite. He was very knowledgeable about Greek history and also was in tune with the current cultural climate. I highly recommend an of his tours! This one is great if you want to see the real Crete with someone who has a lot of experience living here.
