Travel provisions

The basic travel provision in all our trips is the presentation itself of each trip’s theme. This presentation balances between interactive seminar and leisure and is always made by a specialist (archaeologist, biologist, geologist, speleologist etc.). Each traveler receives a printed-guide written for the trip itself (with texts, annexes, photographs, charts etc.). During the trip, we also use other methods for involving our travelers, such as slide-presentations, discussions and group work above the topics, hearings of special music as well as tasting flavors related to the theme.

Furthermore, in all our trips -for groups of more than 4-5 people- there is an escort by an extra experienced guide.

For the accommodation we select hotels and traditional apartments with facilities of 3* but with a family and hospitable ambience. The food is always adapted to the theme of the trip. It follows the secrets of the most nutritious and flavorful Cretan diet and uses products of local producers that we trust.

The above provisions apply to all our trips. Other travel provisions vary between the trips. In each trip-sheet, there is a table that specifies what is offered and what not, and even what could be offered upon request, with or without extra charge. Please feel free to contact us if you have any question (
