Wonderful day
Sep 2019
We were picked up from outside the hotel by a lovely lady in a minibus. Taken to meet the bus and our English speaking guide Kate. The bus was pretty full of all nationalities. Got to our first stop the monastory to be told we were being transferred to our own English speaking mini bus. All 9 of us including driver and guide. After that it was great. Our own very special private tour. An excellent day. Thank you everyone for making it so special

Great way to see the history of Crete
Aug 2019 • Family
Great early morning pick up, main tour was a full coach with 2 guides 1 speaking English/Germany the other speaking Russian.
Mainly Russian speaking guests on the excursion.
English guide was excellent covered the facts and history and also explained the mythology.
Nice visit to the monastery, great views.
Loved the visit to Zeus’ cave, but be warned it is a tough hike in heat to get up to the entrance (made me sad seeing some off the people using donkeys to get up) but the views and photographs are amazing once you get up there.
We really enjoyed the pottery factory where we tried the olive oil and wine, and picked up some great souvenirs.
Lunch is bought separately as all the entrance fees but it was good value and a great stop to break up the coach journey.
Last stop is Knossos and once again the guide makes this informative.
Our return journey is the only negative I can give as the English speaking guide didn’t return with us from Heraklion all announcements where in Russian only so anyone non Russian speaking didn’t know what was happening he also left the bus along the way and a number of guests had to change to a mini bus to complete their journey and this was confusing with no information. We was one of the last to be dropped off and the 1.5 hour journey back just took the edge off a great day.

A truly memorable day trip
Jun 2019 • Couples
We were picked up by car and taken to the tour bus early am. The guides spoke in English, French and Russian. Irini the English/French translator was superb - her knowledge and friendly approach was one of the best we had experienced. The monastery, the cave and pottery were very interesting. Lunch at a taverna surrounded by old windmills was good - delicious stuffed pepper and tomato. Then to Knossos Palace with an excellent comentary from Irini. A taxi was laid on for my huband and I for return to Iraklio. Thank you Irini.

Fascinating history - a must visit when on the east of Crete
A truly fascinating history that dates back to Venetian times and right up to the 1950’s. A short boat ride for €10
