What people are saying about Heraklion

Fantastic tour! Great knowledgeable guide!

I had a great guide with Papatya. She knew so much of Heraklion and where to get the best local authentic food. If you ever wondered what it would be like if a cool history channel documentary mixed with the food network this was it. I was so full by the end of the tour I probably should have skipped breakfast at my hotel. We visited many local shops. The one across of St Minas Church was one of my favorite! For those interested in what I had: bougatsa (creamy version with cinnamon and sugar), olive oil and honey tasting, plate of olives,Cretan cheeses, tomatoes, wine, yogurt and honey and talk and after this many plates of medze at a local restaurant in the market which I definitely plan to visit again when I am in Heraklion.

Very nice walking tour in Heraklion. We did several stops at interesting or beautiful places. The food was delicious and there was plenty of wine and raki. Our guide Papatya was great. Very talkative and full of interesting facts and stories. Definitely recomend if you want to learn a bit of Heraklion.

Eva was amazing and the choices were exactly the local options we were hoping to experience. The food was great, the history tour and discussion informative and the stroll through historic streets sublime. I would absolutely recommend it if you are in Heraklion.

The tour itself was pretty great but what made the experience AWESOME was our guide Eva!!!!!! By the end of the tour I felt like I had a new BFF. Eva was so knowledgeable & informative about her history & people it made me feel connected to Crete.

A fantastic experience we would strongly recommend doing

Lovely place, friendly people and great food. Highly recommend this as an experience, you learn a lot about Crete and it’s traditions as well as it’s food. Plus there’s great shops for gifts!
