Best Tour, Best Guide We had so much fun on this tour! Unlucky for us, we booked this tour for mid-March thinking that we would have decent spring weather, and it was snowing. We had to do a little bit of rearranging with the itinerary, but despite this, we still had an excellent day with our tour guide Eddie! Super knowledgeable and funny! It was fun day filled with beautiful views, delicious food, and fascinating history! 10/10. Definitely would recommend this tour!

Wonderful tour and fantastic guide We had an absolutely wonderful tour and Eddie was a fountain of information. I would highly recommend this tour to those that want to learn more about Crete and get to see some of the countryside. Lunch was fantastic with all local ingredients and the entire day met all our expectations.

Great guide, fun experience. Recommended. We took the tour on Feb/4, the wife and myself. Our guide was Eddie. The weather was not our friend that day, about 6C/43F, rainy and cloudy, but Eddie made the experience fun, with his detailed experience and encyclopedic knowledge of Cretan history and life. It made what would have been an underwhelming experience with a lesser guide fun and involved. I recommend the tour, and certainly Eddie.

Best tour agency in Crete! Exploring Crete with Eddie was my favorite part of my visit to Iraklio! From the moment he picked us up from our AirBnb, we knew it would be a good tour. Eddie is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and kind. We went for coffee before beginning the tour, and throughout the day we learned so much about Crete and mythology. We stopped along the way to learn and sample olives and almonds right from the tree. Getting to see the cave of Zeus was fantastic (tip: wear good shoes—it’s quite a hike). My friend casually mentioned that she wanted to see a winery, which was not part of the tour. We went down into Zeus’ cave and by the time we came out, Eddie had called around and got us a same-day wine tasting and vineyard tour. I was so impressed! He went above and beyond our expectations and allowed us to choose exactly what we wanted to see and do. I would not hesitate to go on another tour from Discover Real Crete and encourage anyone considering this travel agency to choose it. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

Amazing trip around crete What a spectacular tour! Our expectations were 100% exceeded Eddie was absolutely amazing to us. Started out day off with coffee while driving through the Cretan countryside. The trip was full of fun facts about crete, mythology and Greece as a whole. We stopped in local villages where we got to taste some of the local food growing around us! (Loved picking the olives and almonds). Eddie was very accommodating to our needs and always attentive. Cave of zues is a hike but well worth it in the end! Thank you so much Eddie for everything! 🥰🥰🥰

Explore Real Crete is the best! Did you know it snows in Greece? Even in Crete! That’s okay though when Eddie and Explore Real Crete are showing you around. We had a great day seeing their beautiful island and eating local cuisine during “off season.” We will be back and definitely be booking with them again. Thanks Eddie!

MUST BOOK! This is the best tour I have been on Let me say that I booked five different tours for my 12 day Greece trip. This tour was the best out of all! This was the best tour I went on, and the best day my family and I had in Greece. All the beautiful memories are thanks to the fantastic tour guide, Eddie. Eddie was full of energy from the start to the end of the tour. He gave us so much information about Crete, Greece in general, Ancient greek, geography, history, and many more. Eddie made everything so much more enjoyable. I was so eager to learn more from him. We had so much fun walking around the villages, eating Cretan cuisine, tasting natural and the most delicious fruits produced by Crete. I got so much more from this tour than I expected. I scheduled Eddie's tour for the very end of our trip, and he had successfully ended our Greece trip with three big happy smiles!

Amazing !!!!!!!! Where do I start…this is an amazing tour. Crete is so fabulous and even better than my expectations. Being able to see the villagers live their normal life is an added bonus to the tour. Eddie was full of energy and so much fun while throwing out fun facts to teach and also entertain us. Highly recommend 10/10!!!!!!!!! Book Eddie!!

The best tour in Crete This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Greece! If you find yourself in Crete make sure you take this tour. We learned so much about the real Crete — away from the cruise ships and crowds. Our tour guide (Eddie) was fantastic and knowledgeable. We saw the best scenery, sampled olive oil, and the lunch was so good!

A superb day activity with a captivating guide/storyteller All around great day trip. Eddie is a great story teller and will keep you captivated throughout the entire journey. There is much history in Crete, yet we don't always have to look too far back in the future to find interesting stories. The stop on the plateau for example gave us great insight in the history and present-day use of farming in the area. All through Crete you will see that the urban life is more attractive to the younger locals than life in the smaller villages is. This leads to the abandonment of buildings and farm fields alike which have their own characteristic appeal. Something you won't often see on regular tours and trips. We had some bad luck with the cave of Zeus but before accepting the booking, Eddie called us up and told us that because of recent earthquakes there was a big chance of the cave being closed. He didn't want to disappoint us so he made sure that before accepting the booking we were aware of this. Even though we didn't get to go inside, we had such a blast we will book a tour with Eddie again when we visit Crete in the future! Oh we also had the chance (harvest season for olives = November / December) to watch live how olive oil was being made, a great extra to our day! Thanks!
