What people are saying about Heraklion Regional Unit, Greece

Since there were no further registrations, we first had a great private tour through the museum and the various (rich & poor) original houses where we could ask questions at any time. The dance class with both Greek and Greek dances was a lot of fun. Maria was very patient and explained it to us very well. At the end there was raki and juice in the hotel restaurant outside. Anyone interested in Cretan culture is in good hands here.
