We had a very busy, port intensive itinerary on this cruise so we decided to do a beach day for our last port. We didn't spend any time in Limassol. We pre-booked a private driver/guide who drove us to an area where we did a short hike up to a spectacular view point over Balos beach and then we drove on to Falassarna beach. Guide had reserved our sun beds and shades right next to the water. It was ...

Saw some discussion about what to do at this port (Knossos/museum or town?). Wife and I decided on a nearby beach (Kateros Beach). Arranged a taxi to pick us up at the port and take us to the beach and back again. Spent 3 and a half hours at the beach and had an enjoyable time. 2 sunchairs and umbrella with a lockbox was about 8 Euros. Good service at "A Paradise Beach Bar" when we arrived. ...

Not a great island at all. We've stopped in Chania before and this time was Heraklion. Both rubbish, not picturesque and little to do. ...

I thought it was going to be advantageous to sail into this port however, there is truly NOTHING there. It MAY be closer to Palace of Knossos so a shorter drive which is good I guess. ...

We went with SGP Travel Services and were blown away by what Kostas prepared for us. He was able to accommodate our date change and even made some excellent suggestions when our day tour turned into an afternoon/evening tour. We fit into a nice, updated party van! He continued to impress us as he kept giving us food to try (local cuisines) and bottled water. He arranged a nice visit for us ...

Crete was gorgeous. After the huge let down we experienced at Athens (filthy, run-down, looked like ghetto or 3rd world, at least the route the buses took from airport to port, from port to city). ...

Not much of a tour--a walk through town, a small museum, and free time in the market square ...
