Elpida's guided tour of Knossos Palace and the archeological museum in Heraklion is terrific. She is delightful and smart. Her English is excellent. My wife and I recommend this tour for all first time visitors to Crete.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Arthur, thank you for your kind words! It was excellent spending the morning with you and your lovely wife and your true interest in history of Crete has motivated me as well. All the best! Elpida

This young lady did a wonderful, professional tour. She is knowledgeable, attentive to detail and absolutely charming. The vehicle she hired was perfect and clean. The driver also was wonderful and conveniently could drop us off and then pick us up. It was a perfect tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure guiding you and your friends at the Minoan world, especially you that visited Knossos for the second time and still it was a special experience to you! I am happy I was part of it!

Our family of 10 had a brilliant day with Elpida our guide in Crete. The tour was seamless from start to end. We got off the cruise ship and our transfer was there waiting for us. We then travelled to Knossos where we met up with our guide Elpida. Elpida was so informative and knowledgeable about the local area and history. We visited the Palace of Knossos, had a great lunch and then visited Koules Fortress. Our transfer then drove us back to the ship. Can't thank Elpida enough for such a great day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leisa, thank you so much for your kind words! The day with your family was really a pleasure for me too, you were both attentive but also lively and fun to be with!thank you for allowing me organize one of tour cruise days, it is a pleasure that you enjoyed it!! Best regards to all of you!!

A tour of the excavations at Knossos, followed by a visit to the Archaeological Museum in Heraklion could be a rather dull and dry experience--but not if your guide is Elpida! She has what seemed to us to be an inexhaustible knowledge of art, architecture, and history--but somehow she made it all fresh and interesting. We hated to say good-bye!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your words! It has been a pleasure to meet you and your friends!! I would be happy always to guide as generous and polite people as you! All the best! Elpida

Elpida is very knowledgeable, passionate about Cretan history and very kind. We were a family of 7, with 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 3 boys, ages 10, 8 and 5. She accommodated the interest of both the adults and children in an expert manner. During the cafe break, she used her computer visuals to explain the various Greek gods to the boys and maintain their interest during the visit to the museum. I would highly recommend her for both adult s and children .

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sylvia, thank you for your wonderful comments! I enjoyed very much being with your family and wish you all the best! My regards to you all! Elpida
