How to See Crete by Car

After many enquiries from our visitors over the years, we have created two 'Trip Ideas' booklets for Crete - one for the east and one for the west. They are based on 5 day visits, as many people seem to have only this time for their visit to Crete. Of course each suggested route can be changed and fit into any itinerary of your own design.
