We booked a private tour to Knossos, Heraklion and the villages as well as airport transfers to and from Chania. The tour was excellent and we were picked up by Alexandra exactly on time at our hotel. The timings of the day were perfect for us and we enjoyed the museum in Heraklion followed by a walk through the old streets to the waterfront. We then moved on to Knossos which we thoroughly enjoyed where Alexandra gave us some traditional snacks. We drove back to our hotel via the villages and Alexandra provided lots of interesting information along the way. All in all it was a fantastic day and we would not hesitate to book Lefteris again and would recommend to friends and family. The airport transfers were also excellent providing a relaxing beginning and end to the holiday.

My wife and I had an amazing tour with Lefteris Nikiforakis Tours (Taxi Tours of Crete). It’s a family owned tour company who will design the tour to fit your needs. Our tour guide was the daughter, Alexandra and she was awesome. She was very personable and loved her job. She meet us at the port in Heraklion and then we spent the next 5 hours touring the town of Iraklion, the Cathedral, the open market and the tomb of Nikos Kazantzakis. We also went to the palace of Knossos and drove through small villages to see how the local people lived. We also ate at a local cafe during the tour. Everything was ver professional from the first email to being dropped off at the cruise ship. I would highly recommend using Lefteris and his company.

Lefteris is outstanding! We had such a great experience with him during our time in Crete. He is so focused on providing the best customer service, but on top of that, he's just a fabulous human. He carted our family of 6 around for days teaching us about the island, making pit stops for beautiful pictures or roadside food stands and recommending other sites we may want to see. My son turned 17 on our last day and he gave him a treat to remember Crete. Also, my husband left his phone on the van when we were leaving the island and realized it as we were boarding the ferry. We saw Lefteris barreling back to the port to get him his phone before it was too late. Just a great experience - grateful for the time he spent with us!!

This summer we used the services of Eleftherios Nikiforakis. We could not have found a better taxi service to travel with. Eleftherios was incredibly friendly and kind, and went out of his way to show us the best spots on the island. He offered to take group pictures and taught us about the history of Crete. While on the road, he even stopped to show us the flowers used to make the famous liquor ouzo. The vehicles were very luxurious and well-kept. We couldn't praise him, and his lovely daughter, enough!

I contacted Lefteris by e-mail and received a quick response. We discussed a possible itinerary for our short 4 hour visit to Crete and I decided to book a taxi. When my husband and I arrived in Chania on our cruise ship, we were greeted by our driver Xristos, close to the port. Xristos was friendly and showed us some great areas that we had not even considered. I was a bit disappointed that we did not see the sites we had mentioned to Lefteris, but that was just because we didn't have the time. We did enjoy the stops we made. You should know that this is a taxi service so we were dropped off at various stops and explored on our own. We visited a monastery, which was popular and crowded but still beautiful. We also visited a quiet park with a fantastic view of Chania. Next we stopped at the old market in Chania, which was full of restaurants and souvenir stores, and the old harbour, which had restaurants, etc. We ended with a drive through some small villages, with Xristos sharing some information about the area. It was a nice morning; I only wish we had more time to visit!
