Mel L.

Chania, Greece

I love being in nature and I have always been fascinated by animals, plants and beautiful landscapes.

I also feel the need to share the things I love, especially with those who can appreciate them. And Crete has so many natural beauties to discover!

My passion for Crete's beautiful nature led me to work as an eco guide in the magical natural areas of Crete and the Aegean for the past ten years. I have always preferred small and flexible private tours in order to share the real taste of the local nature and culture, taking visitors to the same places where I would take my friends.

It is very important to combine sharing knowledge and information while having the nice relaxing time to absorb everything that Cretan nature has to offer. This is your holiday after all, and we all know how important this is!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a fabulous day with Mel who made recommendations from the start to make sure the tour was right for us. Beautiful hike through the gorge, just the right length. Mel was very knowledgable and informative about the area. Finished the day with a swim in beautiful clear waters on a local beach. Would highly recommend Mel and the tour.
