Undoubtedly the highlight of a brilliant Crete holiday was the tour to Arkadi Monastery organised and led by the knowledgeable and professional Michalis of ebikes Rethymno. Suitable for all ages and abilities we cycled round the Rethymnon countryside making several stops at significant sites to learn for example the importance of the olive industry in the local economy and to visit buildings of historical importance. Before returning we enjoyed a delicious lunch of local specialities in a taverna overlooking the bay.
The pick up was way to late, and we could not reach anybody of the organisation. However the tourguide was very friendly, and even gave us some food in the gorge. The tour was well organisted, and the guide was waiting for you on every the rest location. It was a really nice hike and the gorge was really beautiful!
A bit on the expensive side, but totally worth it. Very insightful explanations and thought-provoking comments that make the whole experience in the historic site a whole more meaningful, allowing you to look way beyond what your eyes can see
We had an amazing experience touring knossos with Akrivi. She informed us well and answered all our questions. You can tell she has a lot of knowledge and passion for the subject. I would recommend this tour.
The guide was really well educated about the history of the Knossos Palace and went into details about the place that would have never cross my mind if I would do a solo tour of the palace.
