    Sehr schöne und persönliche Tour!

    Wir hatten eine sehr schöne und persönliche Tour. An jedem Ausflugspunkt gab es ausreichend Zeit zum erkunden, fotografieren und genießen. Die Erklärungen des freundlichen Guides waren stets informativ und man konnte die Insel aus einer anderen Perspektive betrachten und die Natur, sowie Kultur kennenlernen. Besonders schön war das traditionelle kretische Abendessen bei einer griechischen Familie mit Hausmolkerei.
