2 quad tours to choose:

The Nature Safari (morning trip)
Explore the wild nature of Crete
Our most popular morning tour takes you to the edge of the Amari Valley and offers you magnificent views over the lake Potami from high above. On our trip we do not stop at one specific site for a visit, instead, we allow for many shorter photo stops. 
We will drive our quads amidst the wild nature of Rethymno and if we are lucky we should spot some griffon vultures that can often be sighted in the area we are passing through. With a wingspan of 2.6m and a body length of up to 1m, these birds are the largest to be found on Crete. From the high edge of the Prasses Gorge, we drop down in altitude towards the Potami dam for a full circuit around the lake. 
Right next to the lake we will stop at a small kaffinio where you can get a refreshment and visit the toilet. Afterwards we head up to high above the lake again, to reach our trip’s highest altitude of 620m. Crossing the peak, we will then follow the other side of the mountain back to our departure point.

The Sunset Safari
Drive off into the sunset! 
Our second tour offers you a relaxing ride into the sunset. This is a evening safari (47Km) and ends with amazing views of the sunset over Rethymno. 
Via narrow roads, dirt paths and asphalt, our leader will guide you to fantastic viewpoints high above the Potami damn and Rethymno. From the high edge of the Prasses Gorge, we might spot some griffon vultures. 
We will stop for an appetizer and enjoy the local taste of Raki at the highest restaurant in the Rethymno area while we enjoy the sunset. 
After the snacks we will slowly make our way down to the departure point.
Our quad safari trips have a duration of about four hours, we feel that this is the best balance between the driving, the stops and the roads we take.  

Our morning Nature quad trip departs around 09:30 and brings you back around 14:30 to our base location near Rethymno. 
Meeting time at our base at 8:45
The departure time of the Sunset Safari varies a bit, depending on the time of season. We plan for the best sunset. Please ask the exact time. Depending on the group, all times can vary a bit.

All our tips include free pickup (if you don't have your own car) at your hotel or at our offices, within the larger Rethymno Town area.

All our quads have a large storage box, feel free to bring a backpack with a camera, drone or extra refreshments. During the tour, your guide will take photographs/videos these will be available on  Facebook , for free, after the safari.
