We love our guests ... 
(it seems that they love us too)

Kalimera Yiannis,
It was a long and beautiful day.
Everything was fine and just like I expected.
Our guide with the Land Rover was the perfect guide, told us many interesting things and make us laugh.
We use the opportunity to take a look at the Chania Old Town. It is a very good place too and I suppose that it will be our next choice when we come back.
We are leaving today and I want to thank you for your cooperation....
