About
We are proud to announce the creation of the *Tourist Guides of Crete Travel Agency*, a travel company that offers a complete package of hotel, transportation and guide services both for the tourist and the business traveler. This company is the idea of a dedicated group of senior Cretan guides who were convinced that something was missing in the existing presentation of Cretan tourism, something that would make the ‘Cretan experience’ truly unforgettable. We are delighted that other colleagues of similar training and persuasion continue to join the ranks. We ‘tourist guides’ (as we are officially identified by the European Union) have walked every inch of our island; we are multi-lingual; we have accompanied tens of thousands of visitors and have profited from their feedback and suggestions; we are the graduates of prestigious guide schools and are very familiar with all major sites and museums throughout the island; we are equally acquainted with more remote landscapes and know how

Tourist guides of Crete worked with me to craft a perfectly tailored itinerary that would suit my clients needs completely. They stayed in touch throughout the planning, gave me updates about who the guide would be, one day before messaged me and the traveler (I am the agent) to make sure everything was in order, delivered a professional, yet personal and complete service and all in all contributed for the travelers to have a great day and wonderful memories of Heraklion. I recommend them without doubt. Compared to other tours in other countries, they are a little pricey, but worth it. Everything went smoothly and without a hitch.

The choices faced by us tourists can be mesmerising but occasionally we might choose an option that proves to be the making of a trip. So it was with Tourist Guides of Crete for our first visit to the island.

In making the arrangements for our 5-days of being guided around the western side of the island it was Vicky who handled my many emails and helped me to clarify our needs and form them into a workable programme. As our main contact Vicky proved herself to be the consummate professional: friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.

We based ourselves at the Kydon Hotel in Chania and it was there that we met our guide for the week, Sevastianna Souki and our driver Babis with his fabulous Mercedes tourer. Unfortunately on day two of our programme my wife injured herself on our first hike and this led to a complete change to the week's planned events. The team adapted incredibly quickly and thanks to their quick thinking we enjoyed a fantastic week.

But special mention must go here to guide Sevastianna who reacted immediately and professionally to my wife's injuries, getting her the best of medical care. We don't wish to contemplate how things might have turned out for us had we not hired a guide!

At the end of the week we decided to move on to Athens. With almost no notice Vicky moved heaven and earth to find us a guide and we went on to have a splendid day visiting the Acropolis, its museum and the temple at Sounion.

All in all a fabulous trip all made possible by Tourist Guides of Crete!

The tour of Knossos by the Tourist Guides of Crete was great. The tour guide connected with the group and shared lots of relevant information through engaging story telling. The tour guide was empathetic, polite and well prepared. Organizing the tour was easy and there was flexibility on the side of the tour guide, given that the weather might have affected our visit to Knossos. Thank you for a great experience.

We had a fantastic guide (Mrs Lina Kogaki) who took us to her favorite items in the museum. She has a pleasant voice and humor - and a deep knowledge of the Minoan periods. We were a group of Swedish women from SWEA living abroad, some in Italy, some in Austria and Sweden. Half of the group lives in Greece. This guided visit gave us a good introduction before visiting Knossos and Iouchtas.

We had the pleasure of being guided by Lina Kogaki in Herakleion. She is engaging, knowledgeable, passionate and playful. We were left with the feeling we had spent time with a warm and generous friend and inspired to explore Herakleion's history, cuisine, and general way of life further thanks to Lina! kogakilina@gmail.com

Lina Kogaki offered me the most fascinating tour of ancient Knossos. I was mesmerized by her articulate discriptions of the palace, the ancient Cretan lifestyle and mythology. The site is breathtaking and along with the tour of Mrs Kogaki it was an exceptional experience!

Lina took us on a magical tour of Knossos. She really brought the place to life and it was a highlight for three teenagers as well! Highly recommended and we will be sure to go to the museum with her next time we are in Crete. +30 693 276 9212

Lina Kogaki is an excellent guide, talking about any interesting topic from history to everyday life in Crete, from religion to shopping advices. I enjoyed our walk through Iráklion city center a lot, I recommend her to everyone visiting Crete.

This is a top quality agent with excellent suppliers; would strongly recommend one of their railor-made tours with a qualified tourist guide. You will get a whole different quality experience of Crete! They know Crete like no one else and will create a unique experience for. We enjoyed visiting less known parts of Crete, including fascinating Chania, set in stunning scenery. I recommend a tour about Crete in the 2nd World War as well.

We were a group of 10 people from Sweden who had booked an English speaking guide to show us the archeological museum of Heraklion and we were extremely satisfied. Thank you very much!
