Lefteris Nikiforakis (email: elnikigr@yahoo.com) is a superb guide that provides a perfect fun filled day on Crete, Greece. Tour is tailored for where you want to do, time you have available, and what you want to see. Select an air conditioned taxi with up to 4 people that he drives or for a larger group of 5 with a maximum... More

We toured with Lefteris last year and had no problem going with him again. That was a great choice. We had stayed in touch throughout the year. We didn't dock until noon so our actual daylight time was limited. He was there waiting on us and off we went. We had a group of 12 and he filled the day... More

I was fortunate enough to hire Lefteris as our tour guide on the island of Crete during my recent Med cruise. There were 4 of us, and we had the most amazing time. We met and interacted with locals in mountain villages, tasted locally made food (OMG!! local handmade cheeses and thyme honey with local yoghurt) and learned so much... More

We were so lucky to have found Lefteris!! He showed us so much in Crete. We toured the small villages and countryside. He made the island come alive for us and we would visit it again. Anyone visiting Crete would be very lucky to have Ledfteris as their guide. Thank you

Through a series of emails which Lefty promptly answered, we had planned a half day tour during a cruise ship stop at Agios Nikolaos. We had arranged for certain stops with a drop off at Elounda to take the boat out to Spinalonga. The day turned cold and gray with rain threatening and the boat trip became unappealing. Lefty was...

We had been in Chania for almost a week and were ready to explore further, beyond the tourist trap of the town itself. Contacted Lefteris Nikiforakis on the spur of the moment and we were lucky enough to book him up for a one day tour. What a wonderful day that was! Lefteris is a very knowledgeable man and a...

Four of us hired Lefteris for one day in September, he took us on a marvellous trip through the central mountains to the south coast. He stopped numerous time for us to photograph the wild and wonderful mountain scenery, and was full of interesting information on all manner of Cretan topics. We had a truly memorable day, and I can't... More

On Thursday June 4th, 2014 I ate the best orange of my life and my wife and I experienced a part of Greece that we had never before enjoyed. The day before that, we had one of the more memorable vacation meals of our 55 year old lives. Both those most-excellent days were due to our fortunate encounters with “Tour... More

We were visiting Crete for the first time as one of our cruise stops. I found Lefty's taxi tours on tripadvisor and saw all the great reviews. Unfortunately Lefty was booked up and set us up with another of his drivers (George). He took us to places that the regular tourists will never see. It was well worth the 40... More

Lefteris offers you the BEST tour of Crete taking you not only to any sites you want to see but to places most tourist and standard tour companies go. We traveled from Heraklion to Chania and stopped in some very unique towns along the way and the family run winery. The best part was we did not follow the standard... More
