Awesome experience!
Terrilynn_C, Oct 2022
We had an awesome time on the ATV tour! The hosts were great and very helpful with getting us started. The sights and route we took was amazing! We saw beautiful parts of the city and countryside. We stopped at great locations to enjoy the view and take pictures. This tour is a must. We drive from Heraklion and it was so worth it. After the tour we had trouble with our car and the staff and people from the community quickly jumped in to help us. We were so grateful.
Great experience!

We had so much fun! The tour was very good organized and the tour guide was really friendly. It was totally worth it and we would do it again!
Book this tour Immediately!

I would rate this tour more than five stars if possible! This tour was the highlight of our cruises to Greece and will not sun be forgotten! The kids and adults both loved the gorgeous scenery, adventure, and lunch with a view. On top of that, the customer service was top notch! Georgia answered all my questions, no matter how ridiculous they seemed and our guide treated my mother with kindness and respect when she was unable to finish the tour due to chronic thumb pain. I can’t say enough about this company as a whole! Book this adventure immediately!
Fun adventure!

So fun! Would recommend to anyone up for a dusty thrilling adventure. This is a great way to get the most amazing view of Cretes incredible landscape. They do a loop around the dam then take you up to the peak of the mountain that overlooks Rethymno. We did the afternoon tour and it was perfect. It was not too hot + you get a good view with the sunset. The tour did not give out or sell bandanas so I would recommend bringing one yourself (or a face mask). It gets pretty dusty.

Ploughing through water, going up the bumpy hills, the views of the lake and the ocean at the top of the hill

The tour was amazing!...
Katharina_F, Sep 2021
The tour was amazing! The booking and payment process went with out any problems. We found the base for the meeting very easy with Google Maps. The instruction was hold in English and French and everything was explained very good. The stops at the tour were really good. We had amazing views and our tourguide Simon explained a lot about the places we saw. We got some water and a sandwich which was really nice. We got rainjacktes and -pants because we didn't have that much luck with the weather. But still it was great! Would highly recommend and do it again myself! It was so much fun :)

the 4 hour trip started well, the guide was actually great. But, after the 2nd hour 4 out our 5 quads all had issues. 1 had to be towed , one rider had to go back on a motorcycle, one quad turned off every 30 seconds, last 2 hours were a disaster. we were a party of 10 with 5 double quads. Make sure they get new quads before you book
Response from Host, Aug 2019
We are really sorry for the inconvinience caused in your trip but really we would like to assure you that all our quads and buggies are new but unfortunately unexpected mechanical problems can happen.We really hope that another time we can make to you!
Great fun!

I had a great time and it was just what I needed on my last day before coming back to London. I would change the sandwich option for the break with food but other than that I didn't want the experience to end.

Not only is crete an amazing island, but this Safari really helped us appreciate the area even more so. Whether riding up the mountains or around the awesome lake, the quad's are fast and fun!

Lisa T, Mar 2017
My friends and I go on an annual girls trip and embark on a sidebar adventure with each journey. We had soo much fun riding the quads through the side streets and off road trails of Crete. The scenery was just beautiful and the stops were a rich indulgence in Cretes' local hospitality. Our guides were fun, informative and made sure that the adventure meet our expectations. The sandwiches were pretty good too. This half-day is worth your time.
Activité sympathique
Laurine_M, Sep 2022
Petits moments avec mon copain très sympathique. Les paysages étaient magnifiques et les animateurs super sympas.
Ludovic_C, Jul 2022
Sortie en Quad exceptionnelle, l’accueil: TOP. Le transfert de notre hôtel vers l’activité: Nickel ! Le guide, qui en plus d’être très sympathique, prends bien le temps de tout bien nous expliquer ! Les vues magnifiques, le tout restera gravé dans nos mémoires ! En un mot…. Inoubliable !!!
Expérience au Top !!!
Aurelien_K, Jul 2022
Une superbe activité pour découvrir la région et passer un bon moment. De très jolies paysages et un guide au top. Je recommande.
Super Erlebnis!
Michelle_E, Jun 2022
Die Tour war wirklich toll und hat super viel Spaß gemacht! Der Guide war sehr nett und hat uns viel zu den einzelnen Stationen an denen wir gehalten haben erzählt. Man sollte auf jeden Fall Sachen anziehen die dreckig werden können. Ein Schutz für Mund und Nase wäre ebenfalls empfehlenswert da man sehr viel Staub abbekommt. Alles in einem war es ein tolles Erlebnis was wir jederzeit nochmal machen und jeden der nach Kreta fährt empfehlen würden!

de superbes paysages et un très bon guide à l'écoute, de réelles sensations , c'était fabuleux !, un quad facile à conduire et confortable, une expérience parfaite à la découverte des paysages et des endroits somptueux de cette partie de la Crête à Rethymnon , nous conseillons cette belle expérience à un couple , la sécurité est de mise avec le guide donc n'hésitez surtout pas pour tenter cette aventure, i s'agissait de notre première expérience quad, belle organisation également avec la prise en charge aller et retour à notre hôtel, rien à dire, c'était parfait !

un accueil agréable, um guide sympathique ouvert au partage et à la discussion (Simon) et avec de bon conseil pour la conduite de l'engin seul bémol, la gestion des photos par le prestataire extérieur (en résumé : impossible de panacher les photos) dernière info, le snack prévu c'est plus qu'une simple collation c'est un sandwich
