What people are saying about Crete

Excellent information and amazing tour guide!

Our tour guide was amazing, she gave us so much information about the palace and delved deeper into the history and provided us with so much knowledge about the palace and what took place there. It felt like we were getting an insider's scoop, or like we were taking an upper-level university course. It wasn't as surface level as a lot of other tours are ("this painting was done by this man" , "these bricks are this old", etc). Rather, she told us a lot about why things were the way they were and had us thinking about things very deeply and abstractly. Not only was the tour itself amazing, but our tour guide was wonderful. I had a moment where I was about to faint from dehydration and she rushed over to me and knew exactly what to do to help, then kept an eye on me the rest of the tour. I wish I could remember her name (I think it was Tatiana...? She was tall and blonde). Overall, an amazing tour and would definitely recommend.

Worth a visit, especially if you like do a lot of hiking

First I was a bit unsure, if this hike was right for me. I do a lot of hiking by myself in my home country and I was worried that it wouldn’t be challenging enough. After all I decided to book it and I am wasn’t disappointed at all. You walk your own pace and there form some small groups. Or you can have the luck that you are walking alone. Even though there are like thousand people in the gorge daily it doesn’t feel overcrowded. If you have a normal/fast pace you have at least 3h of free time to get yourself a cold beer and enjoy your time on the beach. The organization was very good and our guide Thomas was s cool guy. A freaky Cretan mountaineer that has a lot experience and knowledge. If I had a chance I would rather walk in both ways not just down. But hey we are on vacation and we don’t need to overwhelm ourselves. In conclusion it was I nice trip worth the price. I would totally recommend it.

Perfect day-trip spoiled by our guide and driver

Perfect day-trip for a small group of persons. It is highly recommended. Christos, our guide, explained very interesting details about Crete and our excursion, and Stavros, our driver, drove us safely to Elafonissi and had good music in the car. Both were really helpful and kind with us. The excursion was really worth, there were not so many tourists, the sun was there, the water was transparent and hot to swim in it, and the sand was really pink. The restaurant and the cave on the way back were also worth the trip. I highly recommend this tour and thank our two nice guide and driver!

Knossos Palace & the Museum at Heraklion Very Interesting

The Palace and Museum were worth the visit, Heraklion itself is full of shops and restaurants, I am sure it has many other places of interest but after visiting the museum and getting something to eat we had no time to explore it further. It’s a long day out, half of it is spent travelling on a coach there and back with a stop for a drink and snacks each way although we weren’t very impressed with the choice of cafe or the coffee. In hindsight we would have hired a car but understand why some people prefer to travel by coach/do a tour.

It was great to see Santorini but the crowd was horrendous!

The boat trip can be difficult for many people due to choppy waves. If you get sick from boat trips then you won't enjoy this trip. However, Santorini is well worth viewing. Unfortunately it is loved to death by the foreign traveller and you will find the crush of the crowd unpleasant. We did enjoy our experience, however, particularly an excellent meal at a Santorini restaurant overlooking the caldera. It is a very full and tiring day but worthwhile if you have stamina and are not affected by boat motion.
