Great trip

Excellent trip - the keep is very comfortable and our guide was fab too! We started by driving to the viewpoint at Balos, wear sensible shoes - I wore flip flops and had a bit of a hike but so worth it for the views, just stunning! From there, you are taken to a beach with reserved sun loungers - literally the comfiest I have ever lied on! Lovely! Lunch was provided at a beach front restaurant and was one of my favourite meals in Crete, really good! All in all, a fab day trip that I would highly recommend!

Incredible experience! Nasos provided quick communication and information prior to booking. During the drive he told us a brief history of Crete which was great. The viewpoint of Balos lagoon was rocky but a quick walk from the parking lot to enjoy the view then we drove to the next beach to enjoy the gorgeous views and get in the sea. Lunch was so much and had nice views of beach! It was a great experience and I definitely recommend to avoid the crowds and see gorgeous areas of NW Crete.

Dear Chris and Helen I would like to thank you for your kind words and your positive review. I would like as well to thank you for your WhatsApp message. You never know, even USA is too far! It was very kind of you to give me "your" t-shirt from the "Top Gun" base in Nevada. The word "thank you", is not enough! I wish to find you in the USA in the next few years. My best Regards

Unexpected heavy rain made for an amazing detour

The view of Balos from up above is just incredible, definitely a must during your visit to Crete! We headed to Falassarna beach after that but it started raining heavily, our host quickly pivoted plans and we went to Elafonisi instead. This was a farther ride out so by the time we got there the day had cleared up. I recognize this was all more time-consuming but I appreciate the effort to give us a great experience in spite of the poor weather. We ended up also in this mountain resort instead for lunch, which was also a nice unexpected treat.

Dear Alexandra I would like to thank you for your positive review and that you recognized that George did a long trip trying to give you the chance to enjoy the sun in one of the beaches. I'm very glad as well that you had an enjoyable time at Milia Mountain Retreat. Take Care!

Dimitri was an excellent host, great local knowledge and really looked after every little derail You don’t go to Balos just get the Ariel view but my opinion is that falasserna is a stunning beach to swim in and lounge in the sun. Great few hours on the beach followed by a lovely lunch before we got back.

Dear Pramay It was a last minute booking and I 'm very glad you had an enjoyable day with Chania Adventures and Dimitri as your guide/driver. We offer the tour as we like it for ourselves and our families and now you can recognise that we are right. It is more easy to have a relaxing and enjoyable day at Falassarna than Balos. Thank you

Amazing tour of Balos and Falassarna Beach
Kimberly_A
, Sep 2021
Amazing tour! Nassos was very knowledgeable in the history of the island. He shared very detailed history about Greece and Crete. He took us to some remote places to view the island and take amazing photos. The view of Balos was beautiful. The view of the lagoon is all we needed. The beach at Falassarna was perfect for swimming. It is a way better beach with less crowd, very nice restaurant and bar, lots of sunbeds and cabanas. Nassos had sunbeds reserved for us to relax and enjoy. Everything flowed very well. We relaxed, enjoyed the picturesque views, enjoyed swimming, jet skiing, and taking a ride on the sofa ski with my group. After our swim we indulged in a delightful lunch. Lunch was absolutely AMAZING! There was a variety of food, fruits, and salad for everyone to enjoy. Also, a round of drinks were included with the lunch. My group enjoyed every bit of this tour. It flowed perfectly, Nassos was friendly, and the beach was a hit!
