          Educational and Enjoyable Experience
          We saw so much of Crete in one day with Marinos (of Unique Crete VIP Tours). He was a great guide, very knowledgeable and a careful driver. We visited Rethymno's historic city and witnessed the Independence Day parade. We also visited the lovely Chania and Lake Kournas. You will not really get to know Crete without Marinos! Thank you for the wonderful experience.

          Thoughtful, insightful and above all else, personal
          Marinos was a joy to be with. He was thoughtful, insightful and above all else, personal. Throughout the trip he shared, entertained, observant to our needs and keep the whole journey in high energy and spirit. That's what it is all about in the end, the memorable experience shared. I would recommend him again to friends and colleagues anytime.

          Feel Crete with this day tour! Unbelievably special day.
          This is a must do tour if you are visiting Crete ! Marinos, our tour guide, is not only native to Crete, but it became clear right away how proud he is of his homeland. He was flexible with the itinerary and took us everywhere we wanted to go and had a few surprises too, including a 2000 year old tree in Krasi. We especially enjoyed the Kera monastery , the Cave of Zeus and the storytelling behind why they are so special. We had a delicious iced cappuccino at a local spot in Mochos and delicious lunch at Seli Ambelou in Lasithi. THANK YOU for this unforgettable day Marinos! We will not forget it.

          A fabulous day, seeing real Crete, great value - just book!
          We had a wonderful day with Marinos. Great communication with Maria before the trip and a pick up on time, in a really comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. We started with a visit to the Olive oil factory, which we weren't really sure about, but it was fascinating. We had no understanding, of either the hard work involved or the different grades of olive oil. It was genuinely a very interesting visit, that we really enjoyed. We then visited a monastery on the way to Agios Nikolas, it was beautiful and very peaceful, Marinos was very informative about the Greek Orthodox Church, which we found interesting. Our next stop was Agios Nikolaos, where we had some free time to walk around and take pictures of the beautiful bottomless lake. We weren't rushed at all and enjoyed an ice-cream in the warm sunshine. We then went on to Plaka to catch the boat to Spinalonga. Marinos, saw us safely onto the boat and we spent an hour walking round the island. As a historian, I found it so interesting. There is a lot of information throughout the island to explain what you are seeing. We took our time wandering round and enjoying the views, before catching the boat back, to be met by Marinos who took us back to the minivan and then off to a traditional Cretian village for lunch in a taverna. The food was delicious and sitting outside, in the shade, eating wonderful food was a perfect way to end the day. However, there was so much more to the day that this, Marinos was an expert guide and was so knowledgeable about Crete and the traditions. He would also stop at great view points as well as showing us herbs and fruit growing on the road side, we tasted carob, he brought us fresh bananas salt fresh oregano and sage. We were also lucky enough to taste some of Maria's traditional baking, which was delicious. It was all the local knowledge that made this trip really special. We were out for the whole day, never felt rushed and were welcomed like family. I highly recommend this trip and Marinos.

          Great Tour of Crete Sites!
          Marinos was a great guide and we really enjoyed our day trip with him. We went to a number of different sites and he was very good at explaining each one of them. Our stop for lunch was delicious. Overall he was very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!

          Discovering Crete
          This tour was exactly what I was looking for : a full immersion in Crete's history, myth and traditions. It's a semi-private tour, which means you won't waste half of your time picking up/dropping off people, or waiting for everyone to be back on the bus when it's time to go to the next stop. Fresh water, fruit and amazing homemade cookies are also included, and you'll get a discount at Knossos in case you choose a 3d virtual tour. So yes, it's more expensive that other tours, but you won't be disappointed. The driver was also so kind to take me to the beach instead of my pickup point on my way back, cause it was still early (and crazy hot) and I wanted to swim on my last evening in Heraklion. Thank you guys!

          A fantastic tour that we didn't want to end
          A fantastic tour from start to finish - we truly didn't want it to end . Very well planned and clearly created with love. Marinos spoke proudly of Cretan values, their emphasis on family and hospitality and he emodided this as he took us on a. expedition of homeland. It felt like every bend in the road had a fact or tale and when there wasn't information to provide we were laughing and joking around with him and the rest of our group. We were well fed and watered with local delicacies and really looked after in every place we visited. If you want to experience the highlights and get a sense of what Crete has to offer then go on this tour - you'll also make friends along the way! Thank you Marinos and see you next year - maybe next time we'll do the Cretan dancing to see how good you really are at that!

          Outstanding
          Our guide (Doukiantzakis Marinos) was fantastic, the tour was off the charts. I would highly recommend our guide for any tour you pick. No complaints on any thing. What ever tour you pick make sure to ask for him. We came from the States, and not a clue what to expect.

          Terrific guide for our Adventure
          There were four of us joining Marinos, our guide, from Unique Tour Crete for our day’s adventure. Marinos ( hopefully the spelling is correct) is the owner and is enthusiastic about the history and beauty of his homeland. So as we traveled, we talked together - we asked questions and were enriched by his knowledge of history, culture, daily life and current issues in Crete. This made each stop even more significant. He couldn’t accompany us into the former leper colony in Spinalonga, so travelers have an option of hiring a guide for this. The weather was perfect. The day was our week’s highlight.

          Best Crete Tour!!!
          This was an excellent full day tour! Our guide Marinos picked us up right at our hotel and was very punctual! He is very friendly and knowledgeable, explaining sites as we traveled from destination to destination. He had chilled water, fresh fruit, and delicious homemade cookies from his wife Maria and played traditional Greek music omg the way. The pace of the trip was perfect! We stopped at several lovely locations — where Marinos doubles as tour photographer — with the Zeus Cave, Spinalonga, and Agios Nikolaos being my top three favorites! I had the chance to ride a mule in the Lasithi plateau and enjoyed the short boat trip from Planka to Spinalonga. Also found the Omalia Olive Press to be interesting. Had a delicious traditional Greek lunch. I highly recommend ordering the pastitsio!! Also had a nice drink waterside in Agios Nikolaos. Definitely world take another Unique Crete VIP Tour!!

          An Incredible and Unique Adventure!
          My wife and I booked a private tour with Marinos while on our honeymoon in Crete last month. We had a conversation prior to our booking, on Facebook market place, and all of our questions were answered. Our day with Marinos was one of the best days we had in Crete! Not only did we learn a lot about the history of Crete but Marinos genuinely made us feel like part of his family. We explored small villages, tried local cuisine, shared laughs and snacks and we left feeling as though we made a friend for life! Marinos you are wonderful! We had such a wonderful experience and will most definitely be booking you Rethimno Tour on our next trip to Crete!

          BEST DAY EVER
          If you are in search of an amazing tour to fulfil your dreams in Crete, look no farther. Marinos helped create the best tour experience for us. First off, make sure you splurge for the private tour! Our tour guide specifically crafted our experience to our desires. Having a private tour was amazing. We even were able to book last minute. Less than 24 hours ahead of time. Marinos made my wife and I feel like we were family. We laughed all day long and everything went so smooth. Our tour guide was a great host, driver, friend, and a knowledgeable man. I’ve never been the “tour type” but Marinos made me not want to explore Crete any other way. When we come back to Crete we will be booking with Unique Crete Tours. To top it off, Marinos wife baked us mouth watering cookies, and he shared snacks and water with us. He even gave us multiple gifts to remember our enjoyable day together. The hospitality we experienced was unparalleled. Our day with Unique Tours Crete and Marinos was beyond amazing, and it’s a memory we’ll cherish forever. If you had any doubts before, don’t hesitate—book your tour now! Thank you, Marinos, for an unforgettable experience!

        My wife, my daughter and myself took a private tour with our guide Marinos… he was excellent… very professional, funny, fluent English, kind and we felt as if we knew each other since long time ago! He explained us very well all the intricacies and history of all the places we visited, we really felt like he was part of our family and he even introduced us to his father in law! During the tour, he gave us a bottle of water, pastries cooked by his wife and sliced fruits, all excellent, tasty and very needed since the tour lasted 8 hours. He drives a nice black Mercedes Benz van… Marinos is one of the best tour guides we have ever had, if you hire him, you won’t regret it!!!

        Excellent 5-star tour with our amazing guide Marinos!! We arrived with Celebrity cruise, and our tour guide was on time waiting for us in a very nice Mercedes Benz minivan at Heraklion port gate, with my name and a big smile.

        The tour started getting into the Crete friendly and traditional Mochos town with a greek coffee at a local coffee house with delicious pastries prepared by our tour guide’s wife 🤤 and also delicious fresh fruit cut in slices ready to eat!

        It was the best decision to take this unique and amazing tour visiting the stunning antique Knossos Palace, amazing Zeus Cave, Omalia Olive Oil Factory, the old windmills & the oldest 2000 year old tree! Marinos tailored the tour to optimize the 8 hrs tour and taking us to the most important places that we for!!

        We really enjoyed every moment, thank you Marinos so much for making us feel like family!! Thanks and until next time!!

        My partner and I had an unforgettable day with Marinos. He took us to beautiful places, from Agios Nikolaos, to Mirabello bay, then Spinalonga island, Lasithi Plateau and the Cave of Zeus. He treated us as close friends and shared with us the history and culture of Crete. He also surprised us with delicious local food, prepared for us from his wife and took us for lunch to a local restaurant, where we ate very tasty and genuine food for very little money.
        The day we spent with Marino, we not only visited beautiful places in Crete, we could also have a sense of the Cretan culture, warmth and friendliness of people and are very grateful to Marinos for that.
        We highly recommend him as a guide. We are sure he'll make your day unforgettable too.

        Our tour guide, Marinos, was wonderful and so informative! My husband and I greatly enjoyed spending the day exploring Crete with him. He made our short trip to Crete unforgettable. We really enjoyed getting to see a wide variety of different sights without feeling rushed. Knossos was spectacular and we also really loved seeing the Lasithi Plateau and the Cave of Zeus (worth the steep hike and all the steps). We also ate lots of wonderful local food and enjoyed sipping raki while viewing the sights and hearing all about Crete’s past and present. We highly recommend this particular tour if you are looking for a sampling of Crete’s history and culture. We will definitely use Unique Crete Tours again the next time we come back to Crete!

        Today we had an absolutely wonderful day trip with Marinos!! We were lucky to be the only group and he was so friendly and taught us everything about Crete and Heraklion and the towns nearby. You can feel the passion and excitement he has to be taking you around!

        This time of year is also really nice because there was no traffic or lines at Knossos or Zeus Cave. We were able to go right through and take our time. Marinos stopped multiple times to tell us about the agricultural and picked different herbs right from side of the road.

        Highly recommend!

        Great tour and perfect guide in every respect. From pick-up to drop-off Marinos ensured that we were comfortable and fully informed at all times. He is extremely knowledgeable about all things Crete, but provides just the right amount of information in an interesting and often humorous manner. The tour was well designed and organised, (thank you Maia for your prompt replies ).
        The transport is excellent in an air-conditioned mini bus. What made the tour so special is his sense of humour, his wife's delicious cookies, cold water, fresh fruit and many other great surprises. We had a wonderful day exploring some of the most impressive sites of Crete. We highly recommend Unique Crete VIP Tours. Efcharisto.

        We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Marinos. From start to end everything ran smoothly. Pick up was right on schedule and transportation was comfortable. Day was planned to avoid crowds and allowed us to fully enjoy our time at each attraction. Marinos is a local so had lots of knowledge to share about the island. Including stops along the way which were off the beaten track. Made us feel part of the family as he gave us a unique insight into Cretan life with lots of nice touches which made us feel special.

        Would definitely recommend this tour or any other if wanting to see the sights of Crete. Hoping to book again soon!

        My partner and I decided to explore Crete with the help of a guide and after much searching we came across Unique Crete Tours.

        The experience, kindness and dedication of our guide Marinos is something rare to find, and all this was noticeable throughout the tour. We met many beautiful and amazing sites, always with the confidence of knowing how to make the most of the time thanks to the advice he provided. I must say that Marinos goes beyond the typical tourist guide: he shows you the typical, the unique, the special of each place and you are left with the feeling that you get a very special privilege in your trip, that is, to feel like a local inhabitant for a moment. Moreover, he is a very knowledgeable person, so if something you see makes you curious, just ask him and he will be able to give you some interesting information or even a book to research more about it (thanks for the recommendation!).

        Crete has many fantastic places to visit and I can assure you without hesitation that having the guidance of Marinos will enrich your travel experience. We were only able to schedule two different tours with Unique Crete Tours but rest assured that on our next visit to Crete we will schedule other trips that we couldn't due to lack of time.

        We look forward to meeting Marinos on another occasion (thanks for everything, Marinos!).

        If I could give this a 10 I would! Marinos was a skillful driver, he is incredibly knowledgeable, such a kind host. And his wife Maria is an excellent baker! We loved the cookies. We only had one day in Crete and Marinos did a great job of educating us in Crete culture. I would highly suggest you book this wonderful day trip with Marinos. It will be one of your best days in Greece.
