Our experienced guides will lead you off the beaten track for an authentic native experience which you can enjoy in the security and confidence of their trustworthy knowledge.

Our walks in Crete have it all: if you want culture we’ll show you Minoan palaces and Byzantine churches. But if you want nature we’ll give you rugged landscapes, rocky coasts, sandy beaches, and breathtaking gorges. You can climb mountains for amazing views or wander the stunning littoral stretches of golden sand. And along the way our groups pass through idyllic villages, soaking in the local traditions and way of life.
