George was a fantastic guide with a very extensive knowledge of the subject. He gave us a very interesting insight into the WWII Battle of Crete including lots of lesser known anecdotes. He was very flexible to ensure he included everything we wanted to see and do, and his organisation and planning meant the whole tour ran very smoothly. We very much enjoyed our experience and would highly recommend George’s services to others!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review! I am glad that you enjoyed it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As a Cretan I have a passion on WW2 and how it shaped the lives of the soldiers and the locals alike. I feel I have a responsibility to show and explain in the best possible way how this struggle unfolded. Thank you for being patient with me and I am happy you had such a good time.

George was an incredible guide. We took the battle of Crete tour and I learned more in 3 hours than I learned in the 2 years I was stationed at Iraklion Air Station in 1969 about the battle. He was very personable and did a great job. Chuck
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to guide you to the battlefields and explain the peculiarities of the battle. We have to keep in memory the struggle and sacrifices of those who gave their lives for us to be free. Hope you had a nice stay in Crete in 1969 and 2019!
George is an extremely knowledgeable guide on WWII in Crete. He went out of his way to deliver the tour we wanted, including battle sites on the coast and mountain locations used by escaped POW's. He generously shared all his research with us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad I helped. The Battle of Crete is an important chapter in our modern history and the efforts of both civilians and soldiers during those difficult days should not be forgotten. Having this in mind I try my best to deliver a tour that gives a good understanding of the battle, not just of events and dates, but of the experiences and everyday feelings and thoughts of those involved in the battle.
