Hi Jess and thank you, as well as Tina, Georgie and Elizabeth for coming aboard "ΩΡΙΩΝ" for a day out sailing the Cretan sea. Yes, we had all aspects of weather changes, all within a day's time but overall it gave us the opportunity to experience a true sailor's day. Please enjoy every day and may all your days be sunny, with a light breeze to keep you cool. Thanks again for your nice review and visit us again, anytime.

This sailing trip is a must when coming to Crete! My husband and I were taught to sail by nikos who is very knowledgeable and an experienced sailor. He took us to a gorgeous cove with turquoise water and made us dinner! Perfection. The price is very affordable for an 8 hour excursion and dinner.

I want to thank you both for coming aboard "ΩΡΙΩΝ", being part of the sailing crew and giving us, myself and "ORION" the opportunity to take you along, to feel and become as one part of the Cretan Sea! You are the best, and please keep your beautiful personalities always, in every day of your travels!

My husband and I spent a few days on Nikos' boat and he took us out for a day of sailing. Souda Bay was beautiful and Nikos is a very patient, kind and experienced sailor. We got to help with the sailing. We stopped in a lovely turquoise laguna and went swimming as our personable tour guide prepared a delicious Cretan lunch. Also, we were able to go hiking around some ancient monasteries, to a real pirates' cove, under the scrutiny of some whimsical mountain goats with Nikos as our tour guide. Another day, he took us on a driving tour through the gorgeous mountains of Crete. We visited two wineries, made a few village stops, took many pictures, and Nikos answered our many questions and had lots of interesting facts and stories to tell. Finding Nikos made our trip to Chania ("Han-ya") absolutely fantastic and unforgettable!

I want to sincerely thank you for visiting us in Chania and I truly appreciate all your nice comments about the days we spent exploring the different aspects of the natural beauty of this island of Crete. Meeting you both was a memorable time in my life and I wish you both the best.
Enjoy every day and come aboard again.
