Staying at Faliraki and booked through Faliraki Tours, recommended by Vicky who was very helpful.
Picked up at our hotel by Nick with another 3 couples and off we went.
Nick had a weird sense of humour!! Asks which way to go smooth or rough Road!! Latter of course passing the Tank tracks as well.
First stop was southern most point at Prassonissi where we had time to dip our toes in the Mediterranean and the Aegean seas. Separated by sand and only come together every four years depending on the moon.
From there we travelled through countryside to beach Hut where the solitude was immense. No one else around. Nick then brought out the ouzo and a picnic where we chatted and ate for 40 min. A joy!!
Then back into the land rover and we set off to view Monolithos and what a fantastic view.
Then further drive through the countryside before stopping at Siana, sample some of the honey and local fire water Souma!!
The only village licenced to brew and sell this liquid. If you like grappa, this is stronger 54%. Lovely little place narrow streets with plenty of time to see it.
From here we travelled back where Nick pointed out wild basil, ( could still smell the aroma 3 days later) picked a few stalks
Also local wildlife and wild sage.
A fantastic day out very informative and Nick was gorgeou !!!
Recommend this tour !!!
What an absolute blast!
My husband and I booked this last minute with Vicky through Faliraki Tours and are we ever glad we did.
Our driver and guide Nick was lovely!
An incredible smile and friendly, confident demeanour we knew we were in great hands.
We climbed in the back, lots of space for our family of four. We met some lovely visitors from the UK and and Ireland and we all set out on an incredible all day journey.
Nick chatted away, he shared his thoughts and gave us lots of great information and trivia about the island. He was very proud to show off his “home” to us and show us he did! We ventured from the sea all the way to the top of the mountain and every where in between.
Very safe, the off roading was so fun and added some physical drama to the adventure.
Nick was very flexible always willing to do more or less depending on the mood of his guests.
My kids we not “bored” for a moment and had a great time with mom and dad; which is great and what family vacations are supposed to be!
Would whole heartedly recommend and definitely bring those “bored” overly privileged children and have FUN!!!!
