Important information
Know before you go
• You can mix and match north and south island options following a sensible plan. However, please take into account that Crete is 650 kilometers in length, east to west, so not everything is possible in a day. Please use Google for research while planning your day out. If you have any difficulties, or not enough time to research by yourself, then the local tour operator can arrange an itinerary for you. Message your hotel name, location and tips for an outstanding journey that will be sent to you for consideration
• Please wear comfortable shoes on the day, and bring your swimming costume if you want to swim or snorkel
