Welcome

to Tour Experts of Crete

The Tour Experts travel agency was created by licensed professional tour guides, which decided to offer their services directly to the guests of Crete. After working for several years all over Greece, in 2004 we decided to settle down on beautiful Crete. We gained valuable experience in the field of tourism over the past years, working mainly on excursions in Crete and the nearby islands – Santorini, Rhodes and Kos – during summer and during winter we continued offering our services abroad (mainly in Europe). After returning to our birthplace, the beautiful Crete, we decided to focus on the tailor made tours and excursions and the excellent service.

We can organize tours and excursions with special interests for conferences and incentives, coach tours for groups, educational excursions for colleges and schools with licensed tourist guides with further professional, academic and other special qualifications to illuminate your tour. (Besides working as registered guides are also graduates of Archaeology, History and Art). We can arrange chauffeur services, transfers and professional licensed travel guides for your private tour in Crete.
