Crossing the river where we may have some water flowing in the months April, May and again from half of September. One of the highlights is a visit of a cave. We stop in a very authentic mountain village, on the square next to the church, for a coffee. We continue our trip along several small villages, on dirt tracks and through the green nature and herbs, passing olive groves and grape fields.

We had the best time ever with Taina our guide! She made this one unforgettable.. In short: we rode 4X4 jeeps on/off road, ate some delicious Greek food and learn a bit about the history and culture of the Island. Highly recommended!

Recommend to everyone who want to see real Crete, villages, try greek food and enjoy nature. Jeeps are good, you drive by yourself, road and offroad. Much better than any bus. Guide Vassilis is very good and helpfull. 😊
