Tailor Made

All our Tours can also be booked as private tours . With pick up from any accommodation or from cruise ship terminal in Heraklion.

This is the perfect way to explore Crete with a small group not exceeding 6 people per vehicle. Your driver, who is also your personal guide for the day, has time for each guest and is giving them his undivided attention. It is ideal for those who want to tailor their own day or program for any part of the island, any day of the year, summer or winter.

All trips can be adjusted by either increase or decrease the driving distance and locations. If you want to visit specific locations for bird watching as an example, we can alter any trip to fulfill the requirement. In any case contact us!

    We did a private day tour with Nick was amazing with his extensive knowledge of Crete, Greek Mythology, etc. He fast track us through the lines at the Kronos Palace and Museum. He was patient as we slowly hiked up to Zeus cave. The highlight of the day was lunch at the Halavro restaurant. Every thing was freshly made and delicious. Nick's attention to details and his kindness made this tour and vacation unforgettable!

    Our trip to Agiofaraggo and Matala beach was amazing! The guide was very friendly and funny and made us feel comfortable. He took us to different spots and we could decide how much time we wanted to spend at the several places. The journey was well organized and the guide was very knowledgable. A little greek snack on the beach as well as a big lunch at a nice greek restaurant were included in the price. Our favorite part of the trip was the Canyon footpath and the beautiful beach at the end of the way with clear water and a nice view. We highly recommend this trip!Thank you Niko for this wonderful day!

    I have completed a 1 day trekking tour to Psiloritis mountain with EXPLOR.GR . The entire excursion was organized from A to Z with a very professional approach. My guide was well prepared with equipment (weather dependent) and food / water supply. I wish I could have a few days more to book another trip with this team. Highly recommend.

    We had a wonderful experience going to Agiofaraggo and Matala in April. Super knowledgeable and friendly guide, nice food with a superb view. The best part was the hike in the dried up river bed ! Highly recommended !

    We had an amazing time on the Lassithi tour! Our guide Kostas was so knowledgeable and provided info & history, but made it fun & enjoyable. Well worth the time & expense! Would do this again & highly recommend.
