Beautiful experience with Angelina, thanks to her we got to know the reality of Crete beyond only the beaches. she is an excellent representative of the Cretan culture, which she tells about with passion, love and professionalism. we recommend everyone to participate in this excursion that you will always remember also thanks to the ceramic artifact produced with your hands (which you can take home). Thank you very much Angelina!
