Zoom past lakes and dams, up mountains and through olive groves, along blacktop roads and across dry river beds on this Hersonissos off-road buggy tour. Tour includes round-trip transfers, full instruction, and a classic taverna lunch.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Such a fun day from start to finish! The welcoming committee is amazing and made us feel right at home. We felt very informed, safe and had a blast! It was so nice to see some of the countryside and be out of the city for the day. Beautiful tour and great staff! We stopped at a great authentic Greek restaurant in the countryside and the food was delicious, well worth the cost. Highly recommend all around!

From Chersonissus up to the rural plateaus and stunning mountain views, this was an awesome day trip. The buggies are more like driving an automatic car so you don't need prior ATV experience - just you (or your partner) being comfortable with bumpy roads. Note there aren't any windshields so they recommend jackets (and provide mud-splatter overalls) for good reason.

The guide, routes, and lunch were all excellent as well.

Make sure you booke the right one. “Buggy Safari MotoXperience”
It’s costs you €140 PP but is worth al of the money. First you get the information and the safety procedures and then you drive tru Chersonisos tru the mountains.
Fun experience with a good timed Break once in a while. At the timed breaks you see some nice viewpoints!
Don’t be afraid to kick the pedal to the metal! Those machines can handle it! :)

Around 13:00 you get the best local lunch
And you continu you safari.

I was afraid of all the dust but you get a good filtermask for it.

Would do it again If visit Kreta again.

10/10 for the hosts!

It may sound like a very non-traditional Way to spend your time in Greece but let me tell you this was a highlight of our trip! Everyone from the moment we booked, the moment we were picked up for transfer, we arrived in the office, every aspect of the day was filled with the best humans that were genuinely happy to welcome us. The entire day was filled with stories, the most incredible lunch, and the VIEWS are worth every penny! Do not hesitate and book this right now. Seriously if you’re still reading this you’re not booking fast enough. Our utmost gratitude to Fani, office mom and team.

This was a truly awesome experience! At first glance it looks expensive but it was worth every penny. Such a professional team and from start to finish we were looked after and had lots of fun - like you were with good friends. Even I could understand the level of maintenance required due to the massive wear and tear of these, albeit robust, powerful, easy to drive and very comfortable vehicles. They are seriously worked!!! The day itself flew by. There were a number of stops and plenty of water on offer throughout. The scenery at times took your breath away. You have to be prepared for serious dust. You were provided with overalls, helmet with visor and a special dust mask. Make no mistake you need it all! But you don’t overheat at all. The fun of driving fast over the rough terrain and even through a river bed was exciting. We reached one of the highest of altitudes in Crete. The lunch stop was in a beautiful mountain village restaurant which served a wonderful selection of really delicious and plentiful local food - and a donkey to stroke! Thank you so much!!

Awesome off road tour covering a huge distance that is mostly dirt track and rocky road mountain paths. The guides are very friendly and professional throughout and adopt a no nonsense approach. The group size is kept deliberately small and as a consequence the tour feels safe and in control at all times unlike some other quad bike tours myself and my wife have been on. The helmets and overalls supplied all fit and all of the equipment provided is in good working order. You get the full off road experience for the vast majority of the day. The taverna lunch included is good quality taverna food. This tour represents excellent value for money and I highly recommend it.

Wow what a great day out this is.
We got picked up and dropped off from our hotel which was a big plus.
The guides made us feel safe and were so friendly, we thoroughly enjoyed this trip!
The views from the mountains are jaw dropping, the food we had along the way was amazing as well. The guides made sure everyone had water along the way and made plenty of stops for picture opportunities 😊
Worth every penny, you won't regret going 😁

Myself and my partner decided to do this excursion after reading the reviews and it totally exceeded our expectations! Perrine was our guide who made the day so positive and fun! We had the buggy to ourselves and were provided with a helmet and overalls. From the second we walked into the office Perrine was offering water and juice, she really takes care of you. We drove around Crete in the mountains and off road for around an hour or two before stopping for lunch in a stunning taverna. The food was beautiful and we couldn’t believe that it was all included in the price. So accommodating with taking photos of you in the stops and ice cold bottles of water throughout the day. Buggies are awesome! Bumpy and high mountains made it really fun! Honestly well worth the money and our favourite day of the holiday!

- Wear old clothes that are not white! Haha! Dusty central! So much fun!

We had a great time today with our lovely guide, Perrine. It was a beautiful, very easy, and fun drive. It was not scary at all! Yes, you go high up on the mountain but the roads are wide and you go at a safe pace. The seats weren’t hard plastic as I’d feared, but comfortable, soft, and wide leather seats (we rode in the can-am which seemed a little more comfortable than the Polaris).

We had thought that maybe the full day tour would be too long, but it was the perfect amount of time. We were a little sleepy at the end after a huge lunch (delicious and abundant), but the time flew by and we had plenty of stops to break up the trip. This is the best way to see the Lasithi Plateau without question!!

More fun than we could have possibly imagined! Easily our favorite part of our entire vacation in Greece. Best way to see Crete, get your adventure fix, eat an authentic Greek lunch, and take in the views. The buggies themselves were in fantastic condition, and the team was absolutely incredible from start to finish - organized, experienced, and just wonderfully fun people. Thank you so much Maria, George and Perrine for making our vacation! Couldn't recommend this more highly.
