Crete is perhaps the most famous travel destination in Greece, especially among those who seek the traditional side of Greek culture. Offering a unique and diverse landscape, a chance to come close to the local customs, native people with authentic hospitality, and the Cretan cuisine, famous worldwide for its taste and health benefits, Crete is a “must explore” for the conscious travelers of today.
There is an exceptional artistic production in traditional sectors such as pottery, embroidery, jewelry, etc and of course the very special Cretan Music. Arts and literature had always played a significant role in the life of the Cretan people. Famous painters like El Greco, Michael Damaskinos, writers like Nikos Kazantzakis, poets like Vincenzos Kornaros and Odysseas Elitis, composers like Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hatzidakis, and Giannis Markopoulos are Cretans or of Cretan origin. Today there are many important Cretans with significant contributions to all aspects of the cultural life in Greece.
How many hours a day will we be walking or on a bus?
Every day we will be walking for a minimum of 3 hours. There will also be uphill streets and stairs. The bus rides vary in time of 20 minutes to 2 hours.
I am traveling alone, will I be the only one?
No, on average we have about half the group that are singles.
Is there a single supplement? And why?
Yes, there is. It's $550 for a private room. The reason we have a single supplement is because some hotels do not offer a single rate. So as a single person you are paying a full rate of the room instead of it being divided by two.
How can I avoid paying the single supplement?
We can match guests with same-sex roommates. We will connect you by email and you can see if you are compatible to share a room.
Is my deposit of $400 refundable?
No, we have limited space and need a commitment from each guest. Please note that the deposit of $400 per guest
