As the only person from the UK, requiring an English speaking guide, I was 'added on' to a group tour of Italians and French tourists. Since the majority were Italian,80 of the time the guide only spoke Italian. I had to ask for translations, but since the guide was an Italian/French speaking guide, his English was not very good. Also, since this group of people were touring Crete together for a whole week, they had already gotten to know each other and I came on board on my own as a complete stranger. They spoke to each other in Italian or French and this made me very much the odd one out especially at meal time when we were seated together.
I need to point out that at no point prior to my booking was I informed that I was joining this Italian/French tour. I booked this tour through Viator as an ENGLISH-SPEAKING tour.
I also have the following other criticisms:
1. It was sold as an air-conditioned COACH tip. We actually travelled on a cramped, old minibus.
2. The visit to Gortyna Roman site was very short and only took in the Basilica and the Odeon. I expected to also see the Praetorium and the temple of Apollo. Very, very disappointed.
3. I was told that the tour would include hotel pick-up and drop off from Rethymnon. Although I was picked up, I was not dropped off at my hotel. Instead, I was dropped off at the hotel where the Italian/French contingent were staying the other side of the old town from where my hotel was situated and basically had the guide point with his finger that my hotel was 'in that' general direction, and then had to walk back by myself for 10 minutes. Good job I knew where I was going!
Had it been explained to me that I would be just an edition to another non-English tour, then I would have cancelled my booking.
I wouldn't recommend this tour.
