Excellent way to spend a day on Crete. Conducted by Georgios through the countryside into the hills, with an enormous amount of historical background. Never dull. Georgios knowledge is immense and he shares it with enthusiasm. A very personal tour and well worth the cost.

As the other answer said, it's €80 each but well worth it. Comfortable shoes/trainers essential and don't eat before going!
