It was great fun! We were picked up at the hotel and after a brief check of the driver's license and instruction in the quads we started. The route was very varied, partly on asphalt but still more than half off-road. Outstanding viewpoints and always the opportunity to take a break. Would like to go right back, just a little too expensive for the price. And it's not entirely clear why it isn't a little cheaper. Because the snack is just a sparsely filled baguette.

This year it was the second time I did the quad tour with Discovery Safaris because it was so much fun the first time! Booking problem-free, nice contact in advance by e-mail and everything easy to clarify (no hotel pick-up required as you drive yourself with a rental car). Very nice reception, uncomplicated data comparison, Corona requirements met perfectly. Material issue hygienic and top. Instruction in the quads was great and multilingual. Tour itself top! Since it had rained a little the days before, it wasn't quite as dusty as the first time. Even if it was the same route, it was different and more challenging due to the rain before, with more water, some mud holes and bumpy paths - offroad was especially fun. The guide is super nice, always has an open ear, is always available for a small talk during the breaks and leads the tour super! On my next vacation in Crete, I / we will book a tour there again and look forward to it! To recommend unconditionally!

100% recommend was a lot of fun. The guide was nice and took time for the unsafe drivers. The landscape was incredibly beautiful and the photo spots in the mountains were incredibly good. From the skill level, the tour is feasible for everyone, it is based on the slowest driver in the group. For me (with Enduro and Motocross experience) it could have been a little faster and harder, but still I had so much fun.
