Our jeep safari adventure begins with a convenient pick-up service from your hotel in Hersonissos.
After a short safety briefing by our tour guide, we begin our adventure, to uncover the beauty, history, and culture of the island of Crete. Driving our open-top jeeps, through amazing green mountain landscapes and rugged roads, we reach the traditional village of Kasteli.
After enjoying a coffee in a local Cretan café, strolling around the narrow scenic streets, and experiencing a little bit of village life, we board our jeeps for a wonderful off-road route.
We will experience a thrilling drive full of adrenaline and excitement, through dusty paths, olive groves, and vineyards, enjoying sweeping views of the rugged Cretan countryside, traditional Cretan villages, and stunning landscapes.
Around mid-day, we arrive at the charming village of Panagia, where we have our lunch break. The delicious meat BBQ lunch, which will be prepared and cooked by all of us together, will be served outdoors, so we can enjoy it next to the smells of nature.
Heading south, and after discovering more wild paths of Central Crete, crossing valleys and gorges, we reach an old Venetian bridge. Be rewarded with spectacular views and capture some beautiful photos. Leaving the bridge, we drive to the idyllic bay of Tsoutsouros, on the south coast of Crete, with unspoiled sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Here we can take a dip in the mineral-rich green waters of the Libyan Sea, sunbathe and relax on the sandy beaches. Our Jeep safari continues, to Koursamos landscapes, where we will explore the natural wild beauty. On our way, we will have the chance for wonderful photos, before we make our last visit to the village of Ini with its small dam. We will visit a Byzantine church which is situated next to a well, called “the source of life”. Late in the afternoon, our jeep safari adventure will come to an end, and we arrive back at our hotels in Hersonissos full of dust, vivid emotions, and beautiful memories.

Important Pre-Departure Information for Jeep Safari Adventure

To help you prepare for your trip, please ensure you understand the following:

Tours are often the best days of your vacation. Most of our customers look forward to this day for weeks or months! That's why it is important that you mind some basic rules to keep the day trip safe and enjoyable for you and the other guests!

Be Smart

Bring comfortable walking shoes with rubber soles for good grip.
Be at the pickup point at least 10 minutes earlier. Check your ticket for the correct time.
Don’t bring too much money. Credit/Debit cards are accepted almost everywhere.
Limit your luggage. Too much weight is always a problem.
A hat, sunglasses, sun cream, and a swimsuit are required in most cases.
Water, lip balm, insect repellent, and anti-bacterial hand wipes/hand sanitizer are sometimes essential.
Leave your valuables at your hotel.
Bring your personal medication and prescriptions.
You must always carry a copy of your passport with you. Although not required it's always a good idea.

The Jeep Safari Adventure with BBQ from Hersonissos is subjected to Crete's weather conditions. If the jeep safari is canceled due to bad weather conditions you will be refunded the price of the ticket or you will be given the option of an alternative tour date, or choose one of our other tours in Crete.

Be Safe

Don't get reckless on the bus. You don't want your day to end early, do you? Misbehavior on the bus can get you into trouble and ruin your day. You could end up sitting on the bus while the others enjoy the destination.
Don't wander off. Listen carefully when the tour guide gives instructions about sticking with the group or sticking with an assigned partner even when going to the restroom. Don't ever wander off on your own, or your trip could end badly. If you break this rule, you could end up missing the timeline!
Respect the Tour Guides and Bus Drivers. You should respect any Tour Guides and Bus Drivers and listen to them as you would your own teacher or parents. They have a big responsibility, watching after so many customers at one time. They can't afford to give too much attention to one "squeaky wheel," so they will probably be intolerant to distractions. Don't be disruptive.
Respect nature. Some day trips will take you into contact with animals or plants. For your own safety, be mindful of potential dangers, and don't assume you can tug, pull, tease, or touch things safely.
Keep an eye on the clock. If you are supposed to meet your group for lunch or for loading onto the bus, you should keep an eye on the time. You don't want to miss lunch, and you surely don't want to be left behind.
