Pure Nature Ride
(1 hour at 25€/person)
The scenery is absolutely amazing! A very diverse trip of outstanding beauty with the voice of silence saying it all.
Magical Kournas lake
(2 hours , 40€/person)
Mainly over dirt roads and amid olive groves we’ll make way to the magical Lake of Kournas. Peaceful and unspoiled nature with amazing views guaranteed. No doubt we will meet Family Sheep… Riding for 2 hours along the turquoise lake is really a very unique way of visiting the only sweet water lake in Crete. A perfect excursion to get into horse-riding!

This intimate size ensures that your group will not crowd your experience. You can expect up to 15 on this trip. Check individual trip pages for maximum group sizes.
It’s extremely difficult if not impossible to join a tour after it has begun. It is possible to leave a tour early however you will be responsible for your own arrangements from the moment you decide to leave the tour.

However, our tours appeal to a wide range of travellers, most of whom share an adventurous spirit and a desire to experience these destinations at a grass-roots level. Our tours are conducted in English and so they attract many travellers from North America, UK, Australia and Europe

When you book online you will receive a follow-up email confirming your arrangements or a timeframe for when they will be confirmed.

As you can expect some landmarks take more time to get to on coach tours and some are more time-consuming than others. With this in mind, we have no set time for the exploration of each attraction. Our tour guides are trained to watch how their group progresses at each landmark and they adjust each tour accordingly. You should keep in mind that some tours cover three landmarks over a single day, so there are a limited number of hours in which to do a lot of sightseeing. Consequently, you may not have an extensive amount of time to spend at each attraction.
You could lose your seat to a walk-up passenger. We encourage you to arrive at the pickup point a minimum of 15 minutes before departure. Once on the tour, your guide or driver will give you a time that the coach will depart each location. You must be at the coach at least five minutes before this time. If you are late and miss the time given, the coach will depart without you in order to not keep the other passengers waiting. If you are in any doubt about a departure time whilst on your tour, you must ask the guide or driver.
Any items we find on our coaches are taken to our office at Episkopou Chrysanthou 37 str. Chania old town and are kept there for 72 hours before being destroyed or given to charity. Please call our office on +30 28210 43243 for any lost items.
