Eri was amazing!!! Not only was she very knowledgeable, she made our experience very fun and yummy. We were a small group with a 2 year old child with us, and Eri was very accommodating and considerate . We learned a lot while still having a relaxing and enjoyable experience walking around Heraklion!

This was a great tour! We stopped at so many local places to meet up with the food and cultures of Crete. Sweets, treats, a Cretan lunchbox, herbs and botanicals, and more. So much was learned and appreciated on this tour. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially solo travelers. The journey is customized to your preferences. The tour guide has beautiful character and much knowledge about the story of Crete.
