Overview
The west-Crete towns of Chania and Rethymnon are within day-trip distance of Heraklion, but experiencing their history and charms is difficult without a hire car. This tour takes self-drive and public buses out of the equation; with round-trip transport and onboard commentary along the way. Enjoy free time to explore Chania’s harborside and lanes; delve into Rethymnon Old Town; and round off the day with a stop at Lake Kournas.

This was the most prepared tour on the Island. I have tried other companies, but Status MLB was much better (friendly and helpful staff, better quality bus, etc). Highly recommended.

The tour was very nice. The guide was sympathetic and helpful. Chania and Rethymno were beautiful places and the lake was very nice for a swim with pedalos. We will book it again :)

The trip was a lot of fun with a lot of information and a lot of sights to see definitely worth doing if you want to pack in as much as you can in a short time. The downside to this is the trip may feel a little rushed.

Thank you for your review, we are however a little confused, that despite your positive words you indicated so low star score. In any case, we hope you enjoyed your time in Crete. Kind regards, Status MLB Team

I thought this was a wonderful tour of the west side of Crete. Yes, there were a lot of people from various parts of the world here. Yes, the amount of information told in 4 different languages was a bit much. But, what can you do when you offer a tour such as this? The only

Dear Sir, Thank you so much for the detailed review and your understanding! For now we are trying to offer the earphones in the bus, so that everyone hears only his tour guide. But, every change needs its time, and for now it is available only 2 days per week. We work to improve our service as much as possible in the next season. Hope to see you again in Crete! Kind regards, Status MLB Team
