What people are saying about Milatos Beach

The Quad Safari Tour was a complete success!! We were picked up from the hotel in the morning. The driver/course leader was in a great mood and explained everything to us at the location. The whole time we set off in a good mood as a group; there was a cool box with water and juice for everyone to refresh themselves. We stopped at many beautiful sights and got a little sightseeing tour and took some nice pictures to remember. Back at the base we have a lavish lunch with drinks and music. We would do this tour again at any time and recommend it to anyone who wants some action on vacation.

The guides were very amusing and very keen to get the participants back safely. We recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see something of the island of Crete and at the same time experience an adventurous quad ride. We were very satisfied 😊 The food that was waiting for us at the end of the tour was delicious.

Greet activity, definitely recommend this family couples or families. Had a fantastic time and our tour guide John was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny.

Very nice, something for everyone. There should be something for enduro/off-road riders. Really into the terrain.

Adjusted on the fly for our young children and limited mobility grandparents. excellent lunch and good sights.
