We visited Crete back in July on the Carnival Vista. I reached out to Lefty and he was booked but said his daughter Alexandra was available so we booked with her. What an awesome time! Out of our nine private excursions, this one was our favorite. She took us to the market and main museum in town and then took... More

We booked Lefteris about 9 months before our arrival and we were so glad to have him as our tour guide! He picked us up promptly and immediately began to tell us about his island. He took us to all the 'must see" attractions and made it so personal by providing traditional Cretan treats and small gifts. He would also... More

We booked a private tour for 4 and the owner's (Lefty) daughter Alexandra was our guide. She showed us all of the local sites (archaeological museum, Knossos). She then changed up the "typical" tour and took us to a local winery where we met the owner who walked us through the wine making process and then provided us with a... More

After reading many glowing reviews on tripadvisor, I reached out to Lefty months ago and arranged a 6 hour tour of Crete in October. Lefty is the best Ambassador for Crete! He has such vast knowledge, passion and love for his island and people. We docked in Heraklion and Lefty was right there waiting for us. We toured the city,... More

We both throughly enjoyed our quick snapshot of the Chania region with Lefteris. He was so knowledgeable regarding the vegetation and history of the area. Our traditional lunch was an unexpected pleasure with local flavor at a local favorite restaurant in the countryside. Lefteris was very easy to contact and communicate with emails and very good with communicating in person.... More

When our cruise ship arrived into Crete, our tour guide, Lefty met us at the port. He was very knowledgeable about the history and showed us the map of the island. He explained what we were going to see. He knew where all of the great view points were and gave us the history of all of the towns we... More

A few weeks ago, we had a SUPER fun and educational tour with Alexandra, the daughter of Lefteris, from Chania to Elounda. She took us to an olive oil factory, the towns of Rethymno and Heraklion, a local taverna with an incredible vista (where she ordered all the local specialities), as well as the palace of Knossos and the Museum....

Our experience was basically identical to what Leighann Z described (i.e., booked with Lefteris months in advance for the same reasons described, confirmed everything was as planned a little over a week before we were to meet, surprised to be met by another person the morning of our tour in Chania (to Knossos), etc). There are others who have reported... More

We booked our tour through Lefteris and knew ahead of time we would be with a different tour guide. Joseph was awesome! He met us as planned when our cruise arrived at the port of Chania and transported 6 of us for a few hours of sightseeing and relaxation. We were a family group of 2 adults and 4 teenage/young...

Chania, Crete was a 7-hour stop during our Mediterranean Cruise in June. After researching the web reviews, we decided to skip the ship tours and use a local taxi/guide to show us around this beautiful island. All research led us to Lefty Nikiforakis and that choice was one of the best choices we made! Our group consisted of four adults... More
