It was a great day due to our driver Dyonissos.
We have learned a lot of the Cretan live and enjoy beautiful landscapes.
Dyonissos make the excursion more enjoyable due to his remarkable sense of humor.
Many thanks

Although the weather was not the best for the first couple of hours of this tour, it was good to be able to see some of the Cretan hinterland. There were some great views and, unlike some other tours, the driver actually stopped at vantage points so you could take photos. We stopped at some little village that really had nothing going for it, but it did give those who wanted to the opportunity to visit a loo. A stop at a larger village gave us the opportunity to get a decent coffee, look in the shops, and see some of the sites - the main one being a fountain with 24 lion-head spouts. We had a good lunch at a taverna within walking distance to Prevelli beach, and then had an hour at the beach. If you didn't want to swim you could climb the hundreds of steps up to the higher carpark, with good views on the way.

This trip was one of the highlights of our holiday. 5 of us set out with our driver, Stavros, who was informative, friendly and great fun. There were lots of stops along the way - to admire the stunning views spot the wildlife including vultures above Prasses Gorge guess the herb and visit villages we would not otherwise have got to. We spent some time in Karines and Spili, long enough for refreshment and a wander round the villages before heading to our destination of Preveli, the South Coast beach with palm trees. We were treated to some excellent food and unlimited wine at a beach side taverna here and then given free time to relax, swim or explore.
More stunning scenery/photo opportunities/ lively conversation accompanied us on the return journey.
Being picked up from, and returned to, our hotels was much appreciated.
This trip is excellent value for money, great fun and a brilliant way to see more of the island.

Excellent day out with Dionysus who was informative, amusing and enjoys his job. Very good lunch stop, comfortable jeep and very varied route.
