Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    An absolute highlight on our holiday! Alexandro was an amazing captain. Even though the the sea was bumpy on our way home he navigated in a wonderful way. He was also very attentive and open minded to our wishes. The places we have seen are magical.

    There’s so much more to this tour than the title describes. Ed was a most fantastic host! He has the perfect balance of personality, humor, knowledge, and safety as a driver. He has the inside information of where to go and what to see! We avoided the typical tourist traps and experienced authentic Cretan culture. In addition to the Knossos Palace and Zeus cave, we also visited an olive oil refinery, small villages, a delicious cafe, agricultural fields where we picked strawberries and cucumbers, ate at a high-end Greek restaurant near centuries-old windmills, and stopped to see a 2 thousand year old tree!
    All along the way, Ed gave us helpful information and fun trivia facts about Greek mythology, Cretan history, and Greek culture.
    I give Ed and this tour the highest recommendation! He’s the best!

    We had a lovely day on the water with this family run company. Both Yianni and Costas were fantastic and played along with our 4 yr old so well, including multiple games of “eye spy”. Everything was perfect from communication with Natassa, our time on the boat including some sailing, the water, food and company. We decided against doing the very touristy Balos Beach and we are very happy we made this choice. A special day out for our family, and felt like we shared it with another family. Highly recommend.

    My family and I booked a tour with Snami travel for a mythical tour of Crete. Our tour guide was Alex and we had Aristotle as our driver

    Our driver was very warm and friendly. He did not speak much English but there was always a smile on his face and he was always happy to help or invite us to have some of his raki. I spent 4 days in Crete and drank way too much raki. The interesting thing is the drivers home made raki was probably the best raki I’ve had. The smell is a lot stronger than it is. After each shot you feel a warmth but there is absolutely no hangover or headache!

    Alex is such an amazing story teller. He was very fun, engaging, and thoughtful throughout the whole trip. Our family composed of 9 individuals whom ages ranged from 22 months to 70 years old. He made sure that everyone was happy, engaged, and comfortable throughout the whole trip.

    We learned about about the North and west side of Crete on our first day. We enjoyed his guidance so much that I asked if I could book another tour with Alex and our driver. Alex did a custom tour for us for the southern part of Crete.

    After spending two full days with Alex and Aristotle, I learned so much about the culture of Crete that I would not be able to find elsewhere. Crete is a beautiful island that can itself be its own country. Its history and culture is so unique and rich. The strategic location of Crete made it a blessing and a curse for how much triumph and conquers there has been. You can appreciate its history through the taste of their food. They have traditionally Greek food (meats/seafood with lots of oregano and thyme) yet with Turkish influences (cloves). The uniqueness of their cheese (made with goat). The romantic and beautiful scenary. The crazy myths that can be told of every rock formation. The charm of having a church in the middle of a gorge on a mountain. A island where you have the Mediterranean and the African weather. You will only find this in Crete.

    Alex showed me all of this. You won’t regret booking with Snami and having them shown you true Cretan hospitality and beauty that you and I would not be able to find on our own.

    Thank you for the wonderful trip

    Aria was amazing! It was great to see Chania from a local’s perspective and she brought us to places we surely would have missed. Her recommendations and insights were valuable. We had such a fun time walking around with Aria and highly recommend the tour.

    We had an absolutely wonderful day exploring Crete with Marinos as our guide! From the moment we were picked up at the cruise port in a comfortable Mercedes van, we knew we were in for a treat. Marinos was energetic, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable about the island, making the entire experience unforgettable.

    Our customized tour began with a visit to the Knossos Palace, where Marinos shared fascinating insights about the history and culture of Crete. We then headed to a small farm for olive oil and honey tasting. They had tables setup for us with many flavors to sample.

    We then went Mátala Beach where we explored the caves, did a bit of shopping, and had drinks. Marinos recommended having lunch at Zaros Lake, which turned out to be a serene and beautiful spot with delicious food and lovely views.

    Marinos went above and beyond to make our day special, even providing some treats along the way. We felt truly spoiled and appreciated his attention to detail and care. He got us back to the ship with plenty of time to spare.

    We can't say enough wonderful things about Marinos and this company. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Crete!

    Excellent choice for a little sailing, swimming, and sightseeing. Captain Nikos was able to speak English and it was fun learning some Greek words and phrases from him and Semeli. Lunch was great and enjoyed seeing the goats, fort, chapel, and other sights. But for us, we just thoroughly enjoyed anchoring by the cliffs and swimming in the beautiful water.

    George was amazing. He picked us up from the port on time and was with great communication. Took us to so many places, told us all about the history of the area, pointed out many interesting architectural points (which we definitely would have missed on our own) and accommodated my moms limited mobility. This is a must do tour in Crete. Added plus is he’s a great photographer!

    Best tour we took in Greece! When our cruise docked at port, it was freezing and drizzling. I contacted the tour operator about possibly changing the itinerary since it looked like it was not going to be a good beach day. Was I wrong! We were taken across the island, across a gorge, to the best hidden spots and the weather was totally different. We saw a 900 year old olive tree, supported local business, went to Elafonisi, the most beautiful pink sand beach in the world, then went to white lake beach, which was a place only the locals knew about. All of our cruise friends were jealous! This is a can’t miss tour.

    Fantastic experience and tour of beautiful Chania. Our guide Erofili was exceptional and the private tour made it feel like we were seeing an old friend and learning about her home city. Would 100% recommend this. So much food and worth the price.
