We were able to walk freely in Chania. Then we went to the lake where we could paddle boat and swim. For the price, the excursion is really good. However, be careful when booking I was told that the payment had been confirmed, then I received an email the day before the excursion to tell me that the bus was full and that I could no longer participate in the excursion. That day. Knowing that I had booked for over a week. So I had to book the excursion directly to Rethymnon to be able to participate.
All in all it was a nice trip with a nice and sympathetic leader. You had plenty of time for the two attractions to discover on your own, but on the lake the personal of the boat rent service made the mistake not to really tell you how to look out for the turtles, so it was kind of looking for the needle in the haystack for us, but this has nothing to do with the traveling service but worth a mention in my eyes.
Very good day to discover 3 sites Very friendly guide Only downside 30 minutes late in the morning due to traffic A little phone call to warn would have been appreciable Otherwise nickel
Well done and lots of interesting facts in German and English. The stay times were sufficient to see the most important points.
