Highly recommend this tour! Contact the owner to plan a custom day and you won’t be disappointed. We had a fabulous driver Dimitrios who was energetic and early to pick us up. He kept us comfortable all day in the beautiful, new Mercedes car. He opened every door for us and made sure we had a fabulous day! As we drove by certain places he would point out the history and give us a lot of information. It was much easier than attempting to drive ourselves. We enjoyed this trip very much and thank Dimitrios and team for the memories! The price may seem expensive but it’s for a full touring day with all transportation and logistics taken care of. Some roads were tiny and winding and it’s zero stress having someone familiar with the roads take you around.

Beyond our expectations! My husband, our 11 year old son and myself traveled with the wonderful Alexander stunning Elafonisi Beach. Aside from the destination blowing us away and Alexander teaching our son to snorkel and photograph fish underwater, he really made us fall in love with Crete with the stories he shared, the stops for beautiful pictures, the incredibly delicious tavern we stopped in for lunch, and the impressive cave we explored. The highlight was a special request from us to find the 80 year old artisan of filo dough that is a legend of Crete and makes magical baklava. He not only took us there, but he knew the family well and they waited for us after hours so we could meet them. The entire day was so very special, we feel that we have made a new friend and the memories will stay with us always. Could not recommend enough!

Dimitrios was the best guide we could have asked for! He was attentive to our every need, made us feel very safe, and had an answer for any question we asked! He went over the top for our experience, spending the whole day with us as our hotel was 4 hours from Elafonsi. We stopped for coffee along the way, grabbed dinner together at a Traditional Greek Spot, and he surprised us with fresh fruits for the beach and a lovely dessert at the end. He also provided wifi for the entire trip, which I didn’t even know was possible in a car! There is nobody else I would have rather spent our tour with, thank you Dimotrios!

Alexander, this company, and this tour was one of the best things we discovered on Crete. We only had a couple of days on the island and were based out of Heraklion. We really wanted to go to Elafonisi beach but discovered it was quite long drive from our hotel and did not want to rent a car. Alexander provided the most interesting, fun filled tour we have ever been on!
For background we are three female travelers originally from Kansas (USA). Alexander was the bridge we needed to enjoy Crete for what it really has to offer. He tailored our tour to the pace that we preferred, would give a lot of historical background on the different sites on our way to Elafonisi, and was so flexible in any request we asked for. He has been living on the island of Crete for most of his life and knew many locals throughout our journey, which really made the experience special- he was able to translate for us when need be to be able to communicate and learn more about the people living on this amazing island. He also had a great sense of humor and you can really tell he loves what he does. Alexander has set the bar so high, I don’t ever want to do a bus tour again! Book with Alex- you will not be disappointed!

We were a group of seniors who needed a little bit more attention in terms of private transportation and guidance. The combination was elafonisi with a dinner at Chania. Everything was professional and highly curated to our personal needs.
Great service!
