    Great guides, great job! The organization was very good. We were the first tourists on Elafonisi beach and could make the best photos. guides have thought of everything: lunch boxes with regional delicacies, drinks with cool bags, charging possibility for smartphones. On the way, we also had the most exciting Crete presentation about traditions and culture. We have even learned the most important words in Greek. Almost everything I tell about the island at home, I learned from Christine. The road to Elafonosi beach is curvy, but the driver drove carefully. we felt very safe. After the tour (fully embarrassing) we forgot our diving masks and swimming shirts on the bus. Christine brought them to our hotel. Extremely lovely, thank you! That was our last day on Crete and absolutely the best one! You can rely on Christine! Thank you very much!
