This was hands-down the most enriching experience we had during our travels in Greece. Johanna the tour guide was amazing! She approached the day with the intention of sharing with us the complex and long history of Crete, and based on that understanding, how the legends and myths we had learned in school had been distorted from their original meaning. She also added a few stops based on our particular interests that really made the day special to us. After our outstanding day with Johanna we felt we were seeing the region with new, more appreciative eyes, which made us live Crete even more. You will not regret going on this tour!

Well what can I say…..Alexander our tour guide turned up and I just new this was going to be an excellent day. Good air-conditioned Mercedes car with plenty of water and beer.

It included an all day tour and involves a bit of walking but don’t let this put you off, I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and you can change to your individual needs. So if walking is limited then this can definitely be done. Snami travel insures this.

We missed the Cave of Zeus due to the hike but plenty was arranged in place. Your choice, your way. We visited the Spilia Venetian Aqueduct, Monastery, stopped at beautiful villages along the way and stopped at the most amazing restaurant for lunch, great food (lamb is a must if you like this) what we ordered was excellent, definitely worth visiting.

Knossos Palace was wonderful and a separate guide Maria was arranged for us. She was informative, fun and put up with all our questions, we don’t have many photos of this due to being engrossed in the history/mythology and engineering chat :-)

The entire tour was full of beauty, culture and humour, lots of scenic stops and wouldn’t have been possible without Alexander our tour guide.

I highly recommend Snami travel for whatever your travel/tour expectations are. Thank you to everyone for making our day a special one.

The driver was waiting for us right as we got off of the shut off the port! We scooped up our tour guide and we’re off for a great day. You get to see so much of the island this way. Much more than you could see if you did not do a private tour. The cave was breathtaking, and our guides picked out a Lovely taverna for lunch. One of the best meals of our tip. Truly one of the high points of our vacation!

Excellent tour guide with great insight about Greek culture. Fantastic dedicated driver—always felt safe even in challenging areas. Nice air-conditioned Mercedes van with plenty of water and beer. This is an all day tour and involves a bit of walking. Will admit that we had not trained for the hike up to the Cave of Zeus—it’s a km at 20* incline, so it takes a bit of work but totally worth the effort. One can hire a donkey to carry you up if desired. After exploring the cave, you return to a beautiful outdoor tavern for an excellent lunch (not included in fee)—MUST try the lamb. My wife is not a fan of lamb but even she loved it—not gamey at all. Knossos was also wonderful—our guide arranged for a separate professional guide of the Palace. She was extremely knowledgeable with an eye for the shady spots. The entire tour was full of beauty, culture and humor—lots of scenic stops and photo opportunities. Highly recommend!

Ioannis was fabulous! She took us to all the best spots and balanced the requests, interests, and abilities of our group beautifully. Her knowledge of Crete history, people, geography, flora, and fauna is astounding. And our driver, Dimitrios, was great!

Highly recommend touring with Ioannis!!

My son (11) and I had an outstanding day with our private guide Nektar. His passion for the island, for Crete‘ history as for the Greek mythology at its best allowed us and especially my son to get the best overall teaching of the european culture cradle. Much better than at school!
It was an awsome day on this wonderful island with a dedicated and really cool guide. We highly recommend this private tour thru Snami with Nektar for German speaking people.

Fantastic! Everything was awesome - our guide we loved. He took us to places off the beaten track, which we loved. Lunch was amazing - loved the restaurant. He was very knowledgeable… sad to have not been able to go to the cave of Zeus…. The driver was great … got us there and back safely despite all the fog and rain. Thank you for taking care of us !!

We booked this tour to discover more about the history, culture and scenery of Crete.

Our driver Babos and guide Andreas were very friendly. Andreas was incredibly knowledgeable and kept everyone entertained with stories and fascinating insights on the history, legends and myths of Crete.

The tour was flexible to accommodate places we wanted to visit and we were delighted with the recommendations of our hosts. As well as the historical sights a highlight was wine and olive oil tasting with pottery making for the kids.

Lunch was excellent with nice local wine and raki.

A fantastic experience and lots of fun for all ages. A memorable tour which really brought the history and culture of Crete to life.
