We always try to cooperate and promote small family businesses that offer excellent services, while respecting nature and supporting the local economy. The meals provided in our breakfast baskets, as well as in the selected taverns and the kafeneia we stop at in our trips, include organic, traditional and quality products of local producers and farmers. In this way, our visitors can taste and experience the real gastronomic culture of each destination and the goods every season has to offer, while contributing to the local economy.

    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
    Summary:
    Went along central and eastern Crete to every site possible and then some more!

    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.
    Summary:
    My favorite parts were the port cities. Really charming. And of course the food and wine.
