Crete Transfers do reliable transfers all over Crete
Either if your arrival point is the airport of Chania or Heraklion we will pick you up and in the comfort of our limousines or mini buses and we will take you to your final destination with comfort. For us at Transfers Crete comfort and quality of transfers are two very important elements. Knowing that all our guests after a flight and probably not having slept well the previous night as many flights arrive early in the morning might be very tired or in an uncomfortable situation. Quality transfers are very important for all our guests but especially those with little kids. We all know how tiring is to travel with kids.
Apart from the airport or harbor transfers our company can also organize wonderful private excursions. We are locals, multilingual and know our island very well. As our prices are very competitive in the market we will be happy to organize your next excursion. This way you will avoid the crowds, the delays with the big busses and the transfer time will be almost the half as it will not be any pickups in between. Transfers Crete suggest the following excursion:
