We decided to take a trip inland as our accommodation was on the coast. We were early in the season so the trips were different each day as only running one per day. Ours was the 'Grand Canyon' trip which took us to an olive factory, through a gorge and into a traditional village. With three teens in tow we... More

We took 3 separate trips. We enjoyed the trips very much. The guide does a good job informing you about the area you are viewing and giving some history. We visited an olive oil plant that was informative on the process of obtaining olive oil. A visit to the store allowed us to buy oil at good price and the... More

We had a pleasant half day tour on The Little Fun Train. It wasn't expensive and picked us up very close to the hotel. We did the Seven Villages tour which was half a day and it was fun driving around in the train. You don't see anything spectacular but it was perfect for a seven year old to keep... More

This is a must if you want to see some of the interior of crete away from the coastline. The tour to the olive press was interesting and the cream I purchased has cleared up my excema on my hand in 3 days--incredible! We then went on up through Therisso gorge which was both fascinating and beautiful. The guide gave... More

Really enjoyed these fun train rides, so much that we booked two trips on them. They are usually a few minutes late but make sure that you are getting on the correct one for your trip, as there are often two or three passing at similar times. They are a little bit bumpy off the main roads but it all... More

WE first came across this train whist attempting to drive to our hotel, whilst obviously designed as a tourist attraction especially for those with small children it does provide a fun and conveient way to travel up the PEO Kissamou Chandion road. Warning not suitable for those with back problems.

Not as much fun as it looks, quite hard and jarring to sit on the seats for long and dusty/smokey. Tightly controlled seating arrangements so you can't chose where to sit or with (or without!) whom. The vineyard tour was not what it seemed - 10-15 min at vineyard and majority of time at a convent that did not interest... More

On recommendation we did the Grand Canyon trip and we were not disappointed. Stopped off at the olive oil factory first then up through the gorge. Amazing views and scenery our guide tour was also very good explaining everything in detail. We had time for a light lunch at the top of the gorge before driving back down. Well worth... More
