Reviews for Crete self drive vacation, Greece


review 8 May 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Visiting the different archeological sites and the Archeological Museum in Heraklion, which was one of the main reasons I have always wanted to go to Crete.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Make the most of the tips for driving routes and sight-seeing along the way provided by he operator. Don't leave your toilet bag in the hotel - we were fortunate that a member of the hotel staff caught up with us at our next destination and handed it over - what great service!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Only one of our hotels was part of a large chain; they were all run by local people, as far as we could ascertain. We ate all our meals in local restaurants, and this was all based on local produce which I love. The tourist trade is certainly a major part of the Cretan economy and many restaurant owners and hotel staff commented on their hopes that this year would be better for them.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
