What people are saying about Anissaras

Très belle excursion. J’ai trouvé ce que je recherchais au sein de celle-ci, c’est-à-dire pouvoir me déplacer sans me préoccuper de quoi que ce soit, découvrir différents endroits qui méritent d’être vu, tout en ayant du temps libre pour soi. Le guide est présent au sein de la journée sans être trop présent à mon goût. Je recommande!

The whole day was lovely, The guides Michael and Eleanor were helpful and informative, with just the right amount of information. Everything went to plan, time to have coffee and shop in Agios Nikolaus and Elounda and walk around Spinalonga island. Thank you to all involved on the coach and boats.

It was indescribable, if you didn't take part in the tour on Crete, you really missed something.

Nice experience to get out of the city and see some lovely towns
