Tour guide, Alexander, was full of knowledge and gave us information about the island over 9 hours. We went from our hotel to the top of Crete through villages, saw a beautiful gorge and monastery. Swam in the sea, drank coffee, and ate at a local village tavern where you watched the food being prepared. Excellent tour. Note there is no breakfast, as mentioned on Viator site, and you pay for your own coffee and meal at the tavern. Only downside is we wished we could have stayed long enough to do another day long tour with this guide. Thank you!
