Where to begin?!…If you are reading this you are considering a trip to Crete or have already pulled the trigger and are looking for a day trip. We relied on previous TA reviews and glad we did. Based out of Heraklion we wanted to head West and departed at ~9:00 am. We were treated with tours of Chania and Rethymnon, and lunch in Lappa by a world class tour guide, Alexander, and our driver Dmitri in a lux 6-passenger Mercedes Sprinter van. This van allowed us to relax in large, comfortable seats and wifi. First class.
Alex’s knowledge of Crete’s history, culture, & architecture are second to none. He was funny, engaging, knowledgeable, organized, interesting, and, most of all, a genuinely great person. He brought Crete’s history to life through its architectural styles and fortresses. We have numerous pictures of us in the Venetian alleys and harbor waterfront graciously taken by Alex at every postcard location
Everything about the day exceeded our expectations. All 4 of us said we want to come back and stay in Chania next time and have Alex lead us in other parts of this amazing island. The trip exceeded our expectations. It was professional in every aspect. It was a great way to be introduced to this amazing island, people, and culture. Worth every Euro. Highly recommend.
