Holiday Coach Transfer time

I will be arriving in Heraklion at 10pm on 9th Sept. If I get the Thomson Coach how long will it take us to get toThe Mirabello Resort in Ag Nik? I am just trying to decide whether to get a taxi or not.

Unfortunately, it depends on how many drop offs there are before as Aghios and Elounda are the last drop offs!!!. It can take as little as one hour if the coach goes direct or as long as 2 and half hours.

Hiya, our transfer was only one hour but luckily we were the first drop off before the Elounda dropoffs.

We arrived yesterday and took 2.5 hours to reach our hotel in Ag Nik, after the coach made many stops en route. Apparently if you take a taxi and go direct on the motorway instead of all the little roads, it takes about 40 minutes. Perhaps someone on the forum with local knowledge can confirm this?

It takes me about 35/40 mins from the airport to Sissi with my foot to the floor so would say that Ag Nik is closer to an hour.

Jock, I'm at least 15 min earlier to any destination in Crete comparing to what Google maps say. For example I've done a thousand times Rethymnon - Heraklion from 45 min to 1h but never on 1h17m google maps say.

Maybe if you'd switch off the A/C could get you to Sissi faster :o)
