Our tour of Chania was wonderful and Nkios made it extra special. Nikos is a great guide - we learned a great deal and had plenty of fun. Walking around the village was the perfect way to take our time and see the sights. My wife has special needs, and Nikos was very patient and extremely considerate. Crete is a beautiful place and when we return we will contact Nikos again!

Nikos was very knowledgeable, low key and flexible. He made the ruins come alive for us. We shared lunch with him at a delicious waterfront restaurant before the old town part of the tour and learned much about current life in Greece. Betsy White Los Gatos, CA

We spent 3 lovely hours with nikos touring rethymnon. It broke up a travel day for us between chania and herklion. Nikos was warm, friendly and very knowledgable. We were a party of 6 ages 5 - 50 and nikos handled this with aplomb. The 2 highlights of the tour were a visit to the filo pastry bakery and the Orthodox Church - where nikos chanted a lovely chant. Would recommend highly

On our last day with Nikos, we visited Chania. We had a very long drive, and he met us in the middle and suggested a stop to break up the trip. He was very patient and was not worrying about the time. We really enjoyed spending another day with Nikos, but after the first two days, we felt like we did not see quite as much of Chania as the other cities. Still, it was a wonderful experience - if you are going to Crete, book Nikos!

On our second day with Nikos, he took us to his current hometown of Rethymnon. He was flexible with the starting time, which was wonderful, since we had to drive there, and after a great introduction, he showed us around. Rethymnon is a great seaside town and we really enjoyed all the little side streets and alleys that Nikos took us to. The highlight was visiting an older man who has been making baklava for decades. It was delicious and we loved Rethymnon!

Nikos is wonderful! He is very kind, extremely knowledgeable, and really took care of my family and I while we were in Crete. He was flexible when we were running a bit late, which was very appreciated, and he always found us spots to stand in the shade, which was important. He gave us a wonderful overview of Crete history and an excellent tour of Knossos. We then rode together to the city of Heraklion, where he showed us some of the town. We had a great time together and would highly recommend him!

The tour with Nikos was outstanding. We felt like we were part of Nikos' family as he shared his knowledge of the location, history and traditions. We have taken many tours and this was as good as it gets! Nikos' recommendations for places to stay, tavernas for dinner and shops were great. If you plan to come to Crete, I highly recommend you arrange your tour with Nikos K.

We spent 3 days with Nikos while on Crete and he made it such an enjoyable experience. He personalized our tour with stops at the Holy Trinity Monastery, local wineries and tavernas. Nikos is an outstanding tour guide and by the end of the tour we felt like family. His tour of Chania has my highest recommendation.

If I could give this tour more stars I would, but I was limited to 5. Nikos gave us a fantastic tour of Knossos, spending a lot of time providing insights about life in Minoan Crete. He has great in-depth knowledge about the history of Crete and the current research and ideas about the Minoan civilization. If you plan to tour Crete, I recommend you do it with Nikos! We spend five days on the island and he gave us great recommendations for hotels and tavernas as well as being a great guide and companion

I hired many personal guides while traveling with my 14 year old grandson in Greece, and all were superb, but Nikos was perhaps our very favorite. a learned, thoughtful and patient guide, deeply attached to Crete and its history--our time at the Palace of Knossos was all too brief, but never to be forgotten, thanks to him.

Nikos was an excellent guide. When we decided to not drive to Knossos, he immediately came up with a plan to drive us through the hills and quiet villages, which was delightful. A thoroughly enjoyable day with a very good guide.

A multi-generational native of Crete, Nikos enriched our perspective of the history and culture. We enjoyed our discussions on topics from mountain tea to the economy! His ability to bypass the huge lines and navigate around the tour groups at the palace made our experience even better. As many times as he has seen the incredible artefacts at the palace and in the museum, his passion for their significance could be felt by everyone in our family. Thanks Nilkos for being a part of our Cretian experience!

We were on a cruise, stopping in Crete and wanted to find a private guide since we prefer not to get stuck with a large group from the ship. I contacted Nikos and he was very helpful through E-mail. Once meeting him we were extremely happy we booked him. Being with Nikos was like being with an old friend. He showed us around many areas and was flexible in what we were able to do. If we ever go back to Crete, we'll definitely be contacting him again.

Nikos was absolutely fantastic!We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable and personable guide.He picked us up at the Heraklion airport and our tour began to the Palace of Knossos.We spent 2.5 hours hearing stories,legends,and historical facts about the remarkable Minoan civilization,while exploring the ruins with Nikos.Next,he drove us via the spectacular coastal route for a lovely lunch at the Rethymnon seaside and a stroll through the old town. Our tour finished at our Chania hotel. Thanks Nikos!

Nikos was our Crete guide. We came in on a cruise ship at Souda & inquired about going to Knossos (it's very far from the port). He picked us up & returned us to the cruise ship. He was extremely professional (he's got YEARS of experience), personable & educated on all the sites we saw on our long drive(2 hrs each way!). I can't say enough about how wonderful he made our excursion--he was extremely accommodating & we left feeling like we had a friend on Crete. I would WITHOUT HESITATION recommend him!
