What people are saying about Anissaras

I booked the mini-train tour and the tour the Villages of Avdou, Gonies, and Potamies. It lasted for about 4 hours. If you want to see more of Hersonissos, this is the tour for you. You actually realize that is a big town. The landscape you see while on the train is amazing and I liked how the people in the villages were waving at us in the train. There are 2 things to improve : the sound quality was really poor when the guide was speaking and when the automated recordings were playing. I could barely hear anything and it was really unfortunate because it was about the story of Crete and Hersonissos and I could only grasp some bits here and there because of the poor sound. The second was that I would have loved to spend more time in the village called Mohos to really taste the local cuisine. 50 min was not enough at all. We all had drinks and food at the restaurants there but we were rushing to get back to the bus and ate and drank so quickly because of the little time we had.

Great day out! Michael, our tour guide, was brilliant and knew a lot about the local areas. As it was the national Independence Day of Greece , we had our schedule moved around a little so we were able to experience the parades that were happening - a really lovely consideration for the team to have made! Our pick up was very smooth and the bus journey was a beautiful route that allowed us to see the Cretan scenery. Elounda and Agios Nikolaos are stunning places and definitely worth a visit!! We had a good amount of free time in each place - the best part, jumping off our boat into the sea on our way back from Spinalonga Island! Bucket list check! Highly recommend this day out to everyone!

Everything was perfect from the beginning! Our friendly guide Kostas, the trip, the goats, the Minoan route, the food (very tasty), the cheese, zeuz's cave, etc. 100! Recommended

Very nice trip. They picked me up in a van very close to my hotel because the streets were very narrow. Recommended!

Brilliant day out, lots to see and enough of time to explore each stop.
