My cousin is looking for some romantic and secluded wedding locations in Crete. I am wondering if any of you have been to weddings and cream, or gotten married there yourselves. The wedding won’t be religious, so it doesn’t need to be in any specific place like a church. I am open to any suggestions! Thanks everyone!

Are they Orthodox Christians? That could make a difference. I would recommend that he or she hires a wedding planner on Crete to help sort this out. I haven't been to a wedding on Crete, but I saw a wedding party taking photos at the beach at Elafonisi. I have no idea where the actual ceremony was, though. If they were Orthodox they had to have the ceremony at a church or an outdoor sanctified altar.

Finding a Private Tour Guide on Crete?

I'm reaching out to this community because I'm planning trip to Crete and I'm on the lookout for a personal tour guide. I believe that exploring a new place is infinitely more enriching when you have the insights and stories that only a local can provide.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a tour guide in Crete? I'm looking for someone knowledgeable, engaging, and passionate about their homeland. It's important to me that the guide is not only familiar with the popular tourist spots but also those hidden gems that are off the beaten path.

If you've visited Crete and had a fantastic experience with a tour guide, I'd love to hear your stories. Additionally, if you're a local or know of any contacts in the area that could point me in the right direction, please feel free to share.

I've seen stuff online about how much fun people have on private tours, and I believe this to be the best option for my family.

Spending time at Rethymno Old Town on Crete question

I'm planning a trip to Crete and have been captivated by what I've heard about Rethymno's old town. From its charming cobblestone streets to its rich history and beautiful architecture, it sounds like a place I wouldn't want to miss. However, I'd love to hear from people who've actually spent time there.

What do you recommend? What has been your experiences?

I'm all for immersing myself in the local culture, so any tips on cultural experiences or events would also be greatly appreciated.

What to do in Agios Nikolaos?

I'm planning a trip to Agios Nikolaos in Crete, and I'd love to hear from anyone who has experience traveling there. It looks charming - I am basically here with a group of friends who wanted to see the area. I have been to Crete but never to this particular place, so I just want to get a feel for what to do here.

Some thoughts about what I can do:

- I think there's an archeological museum here that might be worth seeing.
- Is it worth taking a little trip to Spinolonga?
- I know there are some great beaches and shopping!

Anything specific you can recommend?

Charming villages in Crete?

I'm planning a trip to Crete and, as an enthusiast for the quaint and the serene, I'm on the lookout for those off-the-beaten-path villages that captivate with their charm. I’ve heard that Crete is sprinkled with hidden gems, where one can truly soak up local culture and history amid idyllic settings.

Has anyone here ventured beyond the usual tourist spots to explore some of the lesser-known villages on the island? I'm interested in places that offer picturesque streets, traditional architecture, local gastronomy, and a warm sense of community.

I’d love to hear your experiences! Thank you in advance.
