Trip Ideas for Crete &
The Greek Islands

Travel Guide Greece - we like to get off the beaten track and see the back roads, get under the skin of the country. So do many of our visitors...

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.

We suggest you spend at least 10 days in Crete!
