The tour goes through beautiful countryside and rustic villages, as well as including excellent food. The guide Ed is very warm, insightful and goes above and beyond what you would expect a tour guide to do. I recommend this tour for anyone in Crete. Even though I was the only person who booked, he still honoured the booking too.

We went on a day trip to see Zeus Cave with Eddie and it was a fantastic, fun filled day. Eddie is extremely friendly and shared a lot of information with us about the sites we visited. We felt like we got a lot out of this trip. Also his suggestion of the restaurant for lunch was top notch as it was fresh authentic Cretan cuisine. We saw watermelon, apple, tomato and strawberry fields which you wouldn’t get to see with other tours. This was a very good experience for all of us! Couldn’t recommend Eddie more.

It was a marvellous trip that I had never been through. Eddie cannot be described in few words, he needs a chapter if not a whole book!!!. The smile never leaves his face while he makes jokes; no one can but laughs from his heart. He always tries to make you in the centre of the events while he talks about the roads, trees, honey, crops, churches, hotels, restaurants, Greek mythology and the history of Crete all of that mingled with his own experience. He made us pick up cherry tomatos, apples, wallnuts, strawberries, lemons from the fields and eat them. It was a one life- time experience that I will never forget. Thanks Eddie.

Eddie did a great job keeping the small group engaged and entertained. He worked hard and smart to steer us away from the usual crowd without missing out on what we are supposed to do. It’s an ideal experience for a light-weight family outing that combines a bit of history, local context with lots of walking and natural beauty. No doubt our best day in Crete!

Very Traditional Crete

My wife and I were very happy with the tour of central Crete given by Eddie. On paper, we did not visit that many tourist "highlights", but the what we saw gave us a good feeling for the real rural Crete. For example, we made a number of stops sampling local produce off the vine. Rather than being a typical tour, it had much more of the feel of being taken around by a local family member showing off his home. The tour was conducted on a comfortable 9-passenger Mercedes mini-van. During our trip, we saw other tours with people crammed into small, un-airconditioned vehicles, and we were glad for our ride. The highlight of the trip was probably a long lunch that we had Lithos Taverna in the village of Mochos. The food was great and the owner Nikos made us feel at home. Eddie was adaptable to the desires of the group, and adjusted to itinerary to our wishes. Overall, a fine experience.

No need to look any further for who to chose as your tour guide. Eddie is the BEST

Eddie was by far the best tour guide I have ever had. He was well versed in his knowledge and history of the region and by far the most considerate and thoughtful guide in making our 8 hour tour so special. He made us laugh the entire time and guided us off the beaten path to really educate us about the culture and foods of Crete. He was with us every step of the way through the cave and there were a lot of steps. We were a group of 5 women from Long Island, NY who have traveled to many countries and all agree that Eddie was the highlight of our trip. Tell him The Fab 5 said hi when you book him.
