This is a long trip - 12 hours for us and we were not the first pickup. It is a long way with a poor english guide who sighed a lot and sounded completely bored with the excursion. Rethymno is beautiful and worth a visit on it's own, Lake Kournas - there is no swimming just pedlos and a cafe. It is difficult to get a good view of the lake for the cafe and power lines - only a 45 minute stop here but this was plenty. Chania was nice but having to fit in lunch here didn't leave much time for wandering around. I wouldn't do this trip from Hersonosis - too much distance and time on the road for very little time in each place, perhaps just do them one at a time and miss out the lake.
Thank you very much for your review!
Unfortunately, Hersonissos, Malia and Elounda are very far from the West Crete and so long ride in the bus can be indeed very tiring.
Regarding the tour guide, we have got several complains for the same specific guide these days and we have already taken measures. We will do our best to improve our service.
We hope you still enjoyed your day!
All the best,

What an unmitigated disaster. What a rip-off. Run by the most clueless and disorganized bunch of people ever.
It started with them not reaching us to pick us up. When we called, they told us that we weren't at the "arranged pick up point". However, we had been given clear instructions, in writing, about where we were to wait and we had followed those to the letter. Well, they finally rolled up about an hour late.
It was never going to get better.
This is just a bus drop to various places, and that is all.
Our "guide" was a Russian lady who couldn't string together more than four words in English, and didn't attempt to.
We were just bussed to Rethymnion and Chania, and herded out, told to amuse ourselves and be back on time for the next bus journey.
I could have used the local buses for half the price and one quarter the aggravation. And saved enough to get a decent tour guide.
Do NOT fall for this scam.
Unusual for a Viator booking, but hey, there you have it.
Thank you for your review.
Since you do not specify your booking number or identify yourself, we may only guess, what has happened.
However, we would like to clarify some points:
- We are sorry if you had to wait at the pick-up location. We are sure though that it could not be more than 10-15 minutes, because otherwise you would just miss the tour bus, which has strict schedule.
- All our guides have excellent command of English language and are certified by the Ministry of Culture. Every tourist gets earphones in the bus and listens to the tour in the preferred language, during all the bus ride.
- The Russian lady just transferred you to the tour bus, where the excursion starts, so that you do not need to walk or take taxi from your hotel.
- The program of the tour is clearly specified in the description. The information is provided during the bus ride, and you enjoy your free time during the stops.
- Next time you still can try a local bus from Heraklion to Chania and back at the price of 30,20 euro per person. You can also hire a certified guide for the price of 300 euro. Note, that taking the amateur guide for the city walk with historical heritage (like Chania or Rethymno) is illegal and a subject to a fine in Greece.
Wish you all the best.
the most clueless and disorganized bunch of people.
West coast day trip of Crete .I found it very informative and well explained by the guide. The long drive was compensated by ample time in the different stops in picturesque harbours. Recommended to those interested in the natural beauty especially the natural fresh water lakes.
The tour was well organised and we were very impressed with the guides command of at least three languages. The tour itself was very good but very busy because of the May day holiday. But all in all a good tour and well organised and we didn't lose out because of a long hold up as part of the road had fallen away on our route to Lake Kournas. Unfortunately it rained in Rethymno so we couldn't make the most of our free time, but that's life.
