Reviews for Family trip in Crete


review 12 Jul 2022

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

Snorkeling (first time ever!), the food, the wonderful people we met, and the beauty of the landscape and its history.

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

Be prepared to have a relaxing vacation with enough time to truly let the beauty of this part of Crete sink in to your soul - from the history and ruins to the food, landscape, and hospitality of the people who live and work here. Younger children might not be as interested in the archaeology aspects unless they are taken with Greek mythology or archaeology in general.

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

Iakovos was our guide and was very knowledgeable about the history of the area around Kissamos and his pride in his heritage and local history was beautiful to see and listen to. Sunny Bay Hotel is a family owned business and has wonderful service, food, and I would stay there again in a heartbeat! Ermioni and Manolas with the Kissamos Diving Center were great teachers for our snorkeling and Manolas showed us wonderful delights under the sea - happy brain! As near as I can tell everything about this vacation benefited local people and had a low environmental impact. I don't know about conservation.

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

My grandson and I had a wonderful time together making memories and enjoying being alive. It was about as perfect as a vacation can get!
