After several years of working in tourism, we wanted to do something different. We wanted to create something personal, something that takes place in small groups and is nothing like a big organised excursion. We wanted to give people the feeling to be taken by the hand of a local and shown the most interesting places, meeting their friends and trying their products.With Quads we are able to take you to places that are not accessible in any other way.It is our aim to offer you experiences that are far away from tourism and we work hard to bring you close to the local people, products, customs and history, hoping to create lasting memories. We will take you to see unspoilt nature and some breathtaking views.To us it is important to create trips that are accessible to all the family, because the best time is spent in the company of our loved ones.This is also why our trips are organised on a half a day basis, making it a great trip even for our youngest ones.DRIVING LICENSE NEEDED

Where to stay in Heraklion

Heraklion serves as a convenient base for exploring Crete and draws big crowds with its centrally located hotels, which offer free Wi-Fi, secure parking, private swimming pools, and fitness facilities. Although pricey, staying in the city center also keeps you near the area's top shopping, dining, and entertainment. If you don't mind driving to shops and restaurants, explore the mid-range hotels and small inns farther away from the busy coastline, where you can choose a budget-friendly room with sea views and easy access to quiet beaches.
