I had the absolute best time on the quad bike tour. Andrea is the best guid out there !! Me and my friend shared a quad bike and it was completely comfortable and nice. We switched drivers every once in a while. The pictures don’t do the tour justice, it’s absolute gorgeous!!! The entire tour takes place in the most beautiful places and we got to experience awesome views throughout the day. The tour was extremely family friendly but as teenagers, also allowed us to experience the speed of the bike and at times we got to feel the extreme aspect of the tour. The food provided was delicious and the stop at a local village in the mountains was breathtaking. Personally loved the small group of the tour, everyone including Andreas the tour guide, the civilians at the small local villages and the restaurant were extremely friendly, generous, understanding and delightful. Could not recommend this trip more. 10/10 do yourself a favor and book it now.

The tour was awesome. We saw a lot and had a lot of fun with the quads. The guide Andreas gave us a very good introduction and showed us very nice places in the mountains. We also really enjoyed the traditional lunch in a small mountain village. It was great that we were alone with him. Pure fun and nature. 100% recommendation!

Andreas is a great tour guide with a lot of experience, which you immediately noticed. The tour route was great. My highlight: Lunch in Askoi ... A wonderful insight into real Greek life away from traditional tourism. I can recommend it to everybody. Thank you very much for the great experience.
