I am proud to say that Crete is my home and I would like to take you on a tour exploring the real Crete experiencing the local life and traditions.
Working in the tourist industry for over a decade I have had the pleasure of meeting and befriending people from all over the world.
By working as a private excursion driver I can show my passion for the beautiful Island of Crete. I am naturally friendly with an outgoing personality and my aim is to make your experience as enjoyable, informative and most importantly as fun as possible. I enjoy sharing information of the local culture, values and traditions when taking groups of tourists to different attractions and archeological sites. I would be more than happy to share with you my knowledge and local experiences to make you feel like a local for a day.
Crete has so many areas of unspoilt natural beauty which can be better appreciated and explored when being shown around by a local resident. Crete is famous for its hospitality so why not enjoy some Cretan experiences, local traditions and cuisine in beautiful surrounding with me.
If you want a personalized tour, different from my offered ones, please just ask, we will create together the perfect trip for your wishes. I'm at your disposal also for the multiday tours.
A Recent Review of this guide
Phenomenal Tour off Cruise ship -Asked to see the Knossos Palace and Archeological Museum, Heraklion Sites and countryside saw this and so much more --saw the "real" Crete going to villages, the Lasithii Plateau, Zeus's birthplace, and had a great meal in a village. We even stopped and picked huge delicious strawberries in the field and other fruit. Finally we went back to Heraklion and we walked the town soaking in the ambiance of a his home town dropping us off on the dock with great memories of Crete.

I have over 12 years experience in the tourist industry. I recently attended a 3 month tour guiding course. I am a professional bus driver with my own minibus. My strengths are communication skills in many languages, my passion for Crete and my abilty to put people at easy.
My goal is to provide my clients with the very best Cretan experience. I want us to meet as guests but leave as friends.
I am not a licensed guide and therefore will not be able to guide you inside the historical monuments. However there are highly trained tour guides available at all archeological sites.
