Crete is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Greece. The economy of Crete is predominantly based on agriculture and is one of the few Greek islands that can support itself independently without a tourism industry. The economy began to change visibly during the 1970s as tourism gained in importance. While an emphasis remains on agriculture and stock breeding, due to the climate and terrain of the island, there has been a drop in manufacturing and an observable expansion in its service industries (mainly tourism-related). All three sectors of the cretan economy (agriculture/farming, processing-packaging, services), are directly connected and interdependent. The island has a per capita income much higher than the greek average.
Visitors reach the island via two international airports in Heraklion and Chania and a smaller airport in Sitia (international charter and domestic flights starting May 2012) or by boat to the main ports of Heraklion, Chania, Rethimno, Agios Nikolaos and Sitia. Popular tourist attractions include the archaeological sites of the minoan civilisation, the venetian old city and port of Chania, the venetian castle at Rethymno, the gorge of Samaria, the islands of Chrysi, Elafonisi, Gramvousa, and Spinalonga and the Palm Beach of Vai, which is the largest natural palm forest in Europe. Don’t miss all those beautiful parts of our island, choose the sites you wish to visit, and we can try to combine different programs in one day, creating the perfect tailor made tour. You can choose a car, a small van (7-9 seats), or even a mini-bus (18 seats) for your family or friends.
Tailor made Tours are the main purpose of our company. We go beyond the programs that all others offered the past years… Plan your day your way!!!
