I would highly recommend this tour. We were a small group (3) and Yianni's (our guide/driver) knowledge of this critical period in WWII was exemplary. It helped us understand the role of Crete and Greece in WWII and the effect this had on the rest of the war. We visited Stelios' private collection of WWII memorabilia and his knowledge of that time was also amazing! We were given enough time at each stop to appreciate the sites, including visiting the German cemetery and Commonwealth Forces Cemetery in Souda. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience! I have really been educated in a significant time in world history.

Gianis our guide was very good. He briefed us on the history of Greece and Crete and set the stage for the WWII conflict. We visited a couple of the battle areas and two cemeteries (one allied and one German). We also got a very special visit with one of Gianis' friends who has collected military artifacts from the battlefields. My main disappointment was that it was very hard to grasp the actual flow of the three day battle. We did not get down onto the fields where the battles were fought. Instead we were high on a hill where the Allied HQ was located and we looked at maps to see how the battle flowed. I am a military / WWII buff and I had a very hard time following the action. The visits to the cemeteries was good and Gianis is a wealth of information. A very good tour but I thought with a few modifications it could be even better.

Yanni’s knowledge and enthusiasm is second to none.
He loves his job and it shows in his tour. I would recommend the tour to anyone with a slight WW2 interest.
