      We have had many lovely holidays in Istron. Everyone in the local shops and tavernas are very welcoming. Some great places to eat and not a tourist trap. Has not got nightclubs and stuff like that so is perfect if you enjoy good food, great weather and beaches without all the tacky touristy bits.

      Crete Experience organized for us a custom trip to Spinalonga Island: one of the most interesting places in Crete, so full of beauty and tragedy at the same time.

      It also helped that it arranged for us the best tour guide we had on the island that really managed to captivate our group with the sad story of the leper colony on the island. A real must for tourist interested in the in depth version!

      This is a very beautiful place with many unspoilt quiet places to be found; busy beaches if you want them. There are lots of Greek taverns to eat and experience Greek hospitality. There are lovely little shops and trinkets. Access to the east of Crete is the ideal base for seeing the island.

      Thanks to Lydia and her husband for their friendly and warm hospitality in taking us to the village of Kritsa, a little out of Agios Nikolaos, for a culinary adventure with Kyria Argyro (Mrs Argyro)! An afternoon was spent underneath the vines at this white-washed village hotel where we cooked with Mrs. Argyro stewed chicken with potatoes and carrots in a red wine sauce and also Cretan-style tiganites (mini-fried pancakes). Mrs. Argyro also treated us to plenty of Cretan raki, local wine and mezzedes with her homemade fava beans, trahana (Greek wheat) and dolmades. It was an afternoon spent in the sun, under the vines, without a care in the world - reminiscent of what it would have been to have lived in the 1950s - in touch with soil, with nature and with the things in life that are wholesome and essential. I would definitely do it again and recommend it to all of you! Thank you to Lydia and Christos!

      People at the winery were very friendly and knowledgable which pleased our group since we are members of the Dionysian Society, International.
