Excellent Services

From the beginning until the end of our cooperation, the services of the Tourist Guides in Crete were excellent. Both the coordination and, especially, the services offered by the Tour Guide, Mrs. Irini Maravelia, were impeccable!

Crete 30th wedding anniversary adventure

Tourist Guides of Crete took care of us and the service was first class. They looked after every details of our trip on Crete and also Athens which we organised with them all from Australia stress free. They went out of their way to offer many suggestions and once on Crete, they continued to support us and help us where needed. They took care of our accommodation, airfares and car hire and so much more. The whole trip went without one hiccup. It was the best holiday ever. I highly recommend them for any of your travel needs where they go the extra mile with professionalism and efficiency.

“Wonderful trip to Greece!”

May 2017

My husband and I traveled to Athens and Santorini on a trip planned by Tourist Guides of Crete. We loved our accommodations and travel schedule. Also, Tourist Guides of Crete kept up with us throughout our trip, offering support and communication. They were knowledgeable and helpful all the way. We highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.

We had a terrific time with Andreas. He was a super star and was well prepped for us. The day went very smoothly and we were very appreciative to have his knowledge and expertise.

You guys were a lucky find!

Thank you.

Now that the dust of the 33rd CGI (CGI’16 - Computer Graphics International Conference 2016, Heraklion, Greece – June 28th to July 1st, 2016) has gone down, the conference organizing committee would like to express their sincere gratitude to the Tourist Guides of Crete Travel Agency, for the outstanding organization of the whole CGI’16 event. During the preparatory period, the actual CGI’16 event, and the post-conference activities, Tourist Guides of Crete worked and exhibited a particularly professional attitude, cooperated with us most productively, and eagerly / effectively responded to any issue that came up during such a demanding organization. All in all, the great success of CGI’16 should (among other contributors) also be credited to the Tourist Guides of Crete Agency, whereas the outstanding organizational realization should be fully credited to them! In particular, we feel mostly happy to express a big Thank You to Marinela Mamalaki and Vicky Leivadarou for the excellent and professional way they carried out all conference related businesses. We are pleased to most highly recommend Tourist Guides of Crete for the successful organization of any conference in the future.

Thank you for all of your help and logistics during our trip! Valerie and I had a great experience, everything you booked for us was perfect. We will recommend your agency to anyone we know who is traveling to Greece.

The whole trip was amazing however Crete was even more amazing that we could have expected. Everyone we met was a gracious host and we hope to visit again to explore more.

Thank you again!

We had a great time and Ritsa was outstanding. Thank you for making the arrangements

Eleine & Greg Golden

Wow! Greg and I want to thank everyone who helped us plan our wonderful trip to Greece. Jim, thank you so much for helping us think through our trip, plan an itinerary, and connecting us to fantastic people to take care of details. Tourist Guides of Crete, George and Vicky, we thank you for making all our reservations and checking in with us along the way to make sure everything was OK. All hotel and transportation bookings were great. You made it so easy! Also, Efi was a delight and very knowledgeable. We loved the day we spent with her in Thessaloniki.

It meant so much to me to be able to share part of my childhood and my love of Greece with Greg. It didn’t take long for him to love the beauty of Greece, it’s rich history, and wonderful people. Everyone we met was so friendly.

We’re slowly settling into our routine and enjoying memories of our trip. We miss the flavors of Greece, so I went to the library yesterday for a Greek cookbook! I hope our next trip will include Crete. We know how much you love it Jim, and we would love to meet you George and Vicky! Once again, we thank all of you.

The delegation is very much satisfied with the tour guide service of Mr Andreas Foundoulis. Our Ambassador has said that we will choose him again next time we have a delegation visiting Crete. I myself is very much impressed by the efficiency and professionalism of your agency. Looking forward to cooperation with you again in the near future.

Great service! The trip of a lifetime!

My wife had been dreaming of visiting Greece for some time and when we worked with the Tourist Guides of Crete they made this trip truly memorable. They were friendly and accessible, we felt like we had friends that we could reach should we need them. Tourist Guides of Crete treated us like family and we really appreciate how hospitable and knowledgable that they were. Crete is a beautiful destination where every local really tries to make you feel welcomed, the Tourist Guides of Crete were certainly the leaders in this wonderful culture of hospitality.

We plan on returning to Crete again in the future and we will absolutely be working with the Tourist Guides of Crete when we do so.

Wonderful trip to Greece

Tourist Guides of Crete booked travel, hotel and and car rentals for our trip to mainland Greece and islands. Everything went smoothly. They were very attentive and checked with us throughout the trip to make sure everything was satisfactory. We were very happy with their service!

“Battle of Crete”

“A small group of us (Australian and NZ) booked this tour for the 75th Anniversary of the Battle in which close relatives took part. We were lucky enough to find this company in our research and from the time we contacted them, had first class service. Every email was responded to promptly by Vicky, we were met at the Heraklion airport and taken good care of for the whole tour. Andreas the tour guide was so knowledgeable about Cretan history, culture, food and wildflowers, so as well as visiting the war sites, we had a really good taste of Crete in general. We appreciated the small size of the group. All of us would thoroughly recommend the company and the quality of guide we had on tour and we thank you for bringing a long held desire to fruition for us!” Jan, Melbourne, Australia

“We can’t recommend this tour highly enough, the guide was very knowledgable on the archaeological sites, plant life and the Battle of Crete. We had very good hotels, lunches were superb. All correspondence with the company was excellent. The tour on this occasion was for personal reasons as our father was on Crete in 1941.” Kiwi Aro

“The main purpose of my visit to Crete was to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Crete. We also visited some of the archaeological sites. The tour was well organized and very enjoyable, despite the sombre nature of the commemorations. Our guide, Andreas, looked after us very well and we especially appreciated his guidance in trying out the local dishes. I will always remember the rugged beauty of Crete.” Catherine, Melbourne, Australia

A superb introduction to Crete

My daughter was paying a visit to Crete to celebrate her 21st birthday and I wanted to make that visit a memorable experience. I wasn’t disappointed. My daughter sent me a message as soon as she’d finished the tour saying that she’d been shown incredible parts of the island, tasted wonderful food and wine and skipped the queues. It was truly memorable.

Best travel company on Crete!

Tourist Guides of Crete organized for me bus and accomodation as well as local arrangements for a university trip with students, round trip over the Eastern part of the island. As we moved every day or every two days, this can be tiring, but since all the arrangements were made perfectly, we had a most wonderful and smooth trip. Would recommend ‘Tourist Guides of Crete’ to anyone traveling on Crete! We will be back and ask them to help us.

Visit in Crete of Knossos Palace and the Archaeological Museum in Heraklion

All our e-mails with the company prior to the booking received prompt attention and and precise answers. After the booking, we were assigned a guide with directions for the meeting point.. The latter was well defined and our meeting on time. We had a wonderful visit with a very knowledgeable guide named Mrs Christina Avgoustidou. Her explanations were clear as well as extensive. She showed a great enthusiasm in showing us the site and later the museum.

We warmly recommend the company as well as the specific guide.
