Elena was a very special guide. She showed me important places near Agios Nikolaos and explained them and other aspects of Crete very well. I was even able to try some local food. Food very different from what I usually eat. She was very patient with me, giving me extra time. I enjoyed my short visit to Crete. I don't think it could have been any better.

Elena is fun and personable. She is clearly proud of Crete and gave us a comprehensive tour with lots of interesting information and history. Her car was not suitable for 4 guests. It is too small for 3 people in the back and only 2 had seat belts. The dog hair and stale tobacco didn't help. Elena did say that she would be renting a suitable vehicle next year.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank-you for your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed thetour. I apologize about the condition of the vehicle, I always take my car to a car wash the day before the tour though it looks this time the car wash didn't do the work correct, so in future I'll choose an other one, but most probably I'll rent a car for each tour to prevent this issue. I am sorry you felt the car was too small, I do state it is a standard 5 seater vehicle but I will keep this in mind.

Elena is an excellent guide! There's no way I would have been able to see much of Crete during my short visit, but she helped me see the highlights, and now I feel like I've really seen the island. Her English is excellent, and her choice of places to visit was exactly what I wanted. She really goes that extra little bit to make sure her guests enjoy their visit to Crete. Highly recommended!
