East Crete by Bus, e-Book
Everyone knows Crete as a beach destination, and that an average of 300 days of sunshine a year means more chances to relax on the sand. As an independent visitor, who wants to do more than just lie on the beach, it can be difficult to plan a great route without knowledge of the island.
The local and regional bus services in Crete are run by regional collectives known as Kino Tamio Eispraxeon Leoforon or KTEL.
The coaches you climb on board as you explore the large island of Crete are owned by the driver and his family.
We have always found that this creates a real pride of ownership and excellent service from Cretan coaches. Of course match family pride with Cretan pride and you get superior results!
With the 10 Days in the East of Crete by Bus, you won't miss any
of the historic sites, interesting towns and blissful beaches. This
route will show you the relaxed tavernas and traditional food of Crete,
for everyday eating and everyday pleasure.
We've suggested an itinerary, and given accommodation suggestions, different options for various routes along the way, and variations. There are plenty of information links within the book.
We provide options for 5 or 7 days in Crete by Bus. With this guide, you will be able to make the most of your time in Crete.
With the live-link map, you'll be able to link directly to the map from the e-book and use the map to plan your days and plot your routes in Crete.
