Stathis was a great guide very professional & knowledgeable of the old & new Crete. My dad brother & I had this great experience on Thursday 5th October. The views are spectacular & the driving amazing away up high into the mountains stopping of first to see fresh cheese be made & more stops along the way to take beautiful pictures. I must that my dad cannot stop talking about what a great day it was. The day ended in a lovely Tavern where we had Greek Salad then slow cooked chicken with potatoes from a wood burning oven. It was so tender then a lovely slice of cake washed down with Red or White wine & bottles of water. So lastly a big shout out to Stathis for making the experience so enjoyable & for giving my dad I day he will always remember.

We had a very good day with safari experts crete. We also had a good friendly guide named Statis who is also the owner. He showed us how the greek lived in the past. If you go to Malia you must have seen this. First you go to the shepherd where you can feed and milk the goats, and you get to see how they make fresh cheese. While we were driving he told us a lot more about the greek people. At the end you get a very good meal cooked from the oven. Almost forgot you see a beautiful cave on the way.

We had a wonderful time. Our guide George was fabulous. he is very friendly and patiënt with our children. Every where we went he knew the story about the place . He is very smart. So George keep on the good work. Crete is a very beautiful place to go. I felt in love with valley called the plateau. So we recommend every body who goes to crete to do the excursion with the safari experts.

Just got back from the most amazing day trip I’ve ever been on! Our driver/guide/all round funny guy George Lagoudis (George of the Jungle) was so knowledgable and so much fun! And the whole group were just lovely too! Milking a goat was a whole new experience for me – and to then eat the beginnings of the cheese made from it was fantastic! The views in the mountains and of the Lasithi Plateau were breathtaking! And George’s stories and anecdotes just made the whole day spot on (and the tip about the beach). Thank you!!! Nicki

Fantastic day trip in Crete yesterday (Tuesday 6/06/17) Me and my partner couldn’t have asked for a better guide than George Lagoudis. Would definitely recommend 110%. He had an amazing knowledge of the area, the history, and the people. He Was more like a close friend than a guide was so and easy going and a lot of fun. The views were incredible and everybody we met was so welcoming and friendly. Definitely the best trip we went on during our time in Crete. 🙂 The perfect way to end our holiday Thanks guys!
