This is who you go through. Wow! We planned our trip out before and had certain places we wanted to see during our stay on the Island of Crete. They were able to also help us to develop a sight-seeing plan that has to envy any other possible travel services in the world. My boyfriend and I were submerged in the culture, the environment, the history and the food. Whether you’re a vegan or a meat-lover, Travel Crete Private tours (ex. 1618 Travel) took us to places that would please either palette. All you have to do is ask, “Where do you like to eat.” Even better, if you’re not on a time restraint, then stop by a place more in-land with a Greek name. MOST places have menus in English and Greek.
1618 Travel made our trip comfortable, relaxing, adventurous and truly amazing. We woke up one day at 4:30am just to see a sunrise in Elounda, Crete. The most beautiful sunrise you will ever see! I am NOT a morning person, but even I have to admit, I was in my bliss! My boyfriend and I vowed to return one day. Which will definitely be within the next year or two.
Anyone who wants their money to go a long way AND wants a company that goes the extra mile- use this one. 1618 Travel has wonderful tour guides and fantastic drivers. The owner himself, goes out of his way to make sure you, the client, are completely satisfied and happy with your trip.
I highly recommend 1618 Travel. Mind-blowing excursions.
(Sidenote about Crete: I suggest learning some Greek, as you would be surprised how many extras you will get from your trip. By “extras” I mean from local vendors tend to be more hospitable towards people who take the time to learn their language and cultural customs.)
