The tour follows a well-balanced mixture of road and off-road routes through olive groves and traditional villages, allowing visitors to explore the stunning natural landscapes of the region while riding their own ATV. The quad safari includes a stop at Margarites Village, one of the four main traditional pottery centers of Crete. Visitors can explore one of the many pottery workhouses and learn about the history of traditional pottery along with a live demonstration.

Margarites Village is renowned for its pottery tradition that dates back to the Minoan period. The village's unique clay soil and the local potters' skills have made it a center of excellence for pottery and ceramics. Margarites has many studios where ages-old craftsmanship has been passed down generation to generation.
