Bertakis Brothers Crete Taxis & Transfers in Chania and Rethymnon

"Yiasas, our names are Giannis and Dimitris, we are brothers and we are from Chania, Crete.

We have been working on taxi transfers for the last few years and we provide high quality services.

I'm Giannis and I'm 28 years old, I studied physics, also I have a Master's Degree in Environmental Engineering. My brother Dimitris is 27 years old and he is studying business planning and electronic systems. We speak English and Spanish.

We both love this island and we are working on our family business. It is a big pleasure for us to work close to our home and on this beautiful island.

We can make transfers from Chania and Heraklion airport to your hotel and return. Also, can we organise tours. We are guides for you, the visitor, who wants to see some beautiful places or historical and ancient places.

With our Crete taxis and transfer service we can drive you to the places that you choose, and at the same time we can explain and inform you about the history and the importance of that place for the Cretans.

For the Greeks, Crete is a diamond in Greece. It is a very unique place and very different place from the rest of Greece. The tradition here is very strong and Cretans are very careful with that.

The culture, the food, the tradition, some historical places and the most important, the people, are remaining unchanged over time. At the same time, tourism is a part of Cretan's life that makes them to be more open minded and it makes us very happy because we share our traditions and the beauties of this island with people from all over the world. For that reason, Cretans love to provide their services and of course, the quality of them are very high.

The island is big. You need about 6 hours driving to go from the west coast to the east coast. So, it is very difficult to explore the entire island in a few days.

There is a way to visit some beautiful places and combine every place with one overnight stay. With this way you can visit many places in few days. There are many places that you can visit.

If you want just to relax you can do it easily choosing one of the thousand beautiful, and high quality service, hotels that they are placed near the sea or inland. You can ask us about the most beautiful places that you can visit, but as I have noted before, every place is unique and it has its own beauty."
