A Recent Review of this tour

Marilina provided a great tour of Crete for we three men. From initial contact through the end of the tour her communications were timely. Her knowledge of Crete history, mythology and the island was thorough. She welcomed questions and her responses were thorough. She not only took us to historic sites to view the site but also told the story about the site that made the tour especially interesting and exciting. Marilina is personable and was a pleasure to be with throughout the 3 days. Always on time.
