We loved Agios Nikolaos. The weather was perfect, sometimes too windy to be on the beach, but we got a lot of sun and swimming. The food was excellent. It was easy to get to see other places if we were so inclined.
Best parts:
Since I am Greek (my parents were Greek) coming back to Greece is like coming home to me. I feel at home here, familiar and it is a wonderful feeling. Agios Nikolaos is a great town for walking, which is what we did a lot of...and shopping.
Worst parts:
the only thing I really didn’t like about this trip was the travel time to get there and back, leaving less time to stay where we wanted to be.

I was intrigued by the Evaneos pitch that I could get a tailored itinerary by a local expert and I wanted to put that to the test -- I actually picked Crete based on the Petassos description catching my attention while browsing the Evaneos website. We were able to arrange a tailored itinerary as was promised. Our itinerary coupled a few guided days with driver together with a longer self-guided hiking trip. We were very pleased with how it all turned out. Chryssa and Petassos provided great support/communications during the visit to help us with a few questions and needs that came up along the way. I will be writing one or more blog articles about our experiences at www.primepassages.com
Best parts:
Petassos did an excellent job of tailoring our itinerary to match my requests and interests. Chryssa's outreach to the breweries worked out great even though I know that was an unusual request. The brewery visits, hiking, and accommodations along the way were highlights.
Worst parts:
too short

Went along central and eastern Crete to every site possible and then some more!
Best parts:
Personal guided archeologist introduced me to the local functions and showed me sites not even listed. Head of planning the trip personally met me at my first hotel and talked with me throughout. Ancient sites up to 5000 years old constantly blowing my mind. Incredibly personalized trip. Crete. My favourite part is Crete.
Worst parts:
I didn't book a longer time! I wish I could have stayed forever

My favorite parts were the port cities. Really charming. And of course the food and wine.
Best parts:
Definitely liked our driver. He was very flexible. Also made suggections about seeing things not on our formal itinerary.
Worst parts:
2 night stays, but I guess that was inevitable given what we wanted to,see.

We absolutely loved Crete. The landscape is incredibly varied with dramatic mountains and beautiful coastlines. Our trip was planned so that we enjoyed a number of different locations with accommodation that was often unique, remote and comfortable, in beautiful, peaceful locations with fabulous hospitaliy. This was an active, adventurous holiday in a beautiful place which we wouldn't hesitate to return to in the future.
Best parts:
We absolutely loved the trip, the itinerary provided us with an opportunity to get an introduction to the real Crete. We enjoyed superb and unique accommodation from mountains to the sea, city and country, hiking, culture, history, museums and ancient sights, delicious food and the wonderful Cretan hospitality. The varied landscapes that we traveled through or visited were breathtaking. The individual trip guide book prepared for us by our travel agent was extremely useful and ensured that we made the very most of our time in Crete.
Worst parts:
There were a couple of days during our holiday when the driving distance was just a little bit too much and was quite tiring.

From our arrival in Athens all hotels were chosen with our requests in mind - central locations - level of service extremely comfortable. In Athens had tour with archaeological specialist Dimitri who was professional, knowledgeable and extremely interesting. On to Chania where Penelope met us, took us for Cretan after overnight cruise breakfast and filled us in on our itinerary for rest of our tour. Our 'Bible' made by Chryssa proved infallible - tried her restaurant choices in each location. Santorini was as mind blowing as Chryssa had predicted. Fabulous trip - would highly recommend Chryssa and her team. Merci Chryssa.
Best parts:
Chryssa was able to tailor our trip to our wishes within our budget even with the inconvenience of major holiday of Easter .
Worst parts:
Would have liked to spend more time on Crete - in Chania.
