What people are saying about Heraklion

We didn't have to wait long at the airport and only got to the hotel (Rethymno) in just 1.5 hours. This was probably due to the fact that only three hotels were served and we were only 8 people in the van. The return transfer is also booked here. TOP

Nikos was amazing. Very friendly & accommodating, even offered to stop if we wanted to get water. He also gave us suggestions for what to do & where to go along our route.

Manousos was great, extremely friendly and a good driver. Highly recommended to use for your transfer to Rethymno!

The driver was extremely courteous, safe and friendly. Gave us some tips of what to see on the island on the way.
