We didn't meet any strange behavior at all and we went around almost the whole island. Up and down the mountains all the time... What a fantastic scenery the island has to offer! We wouldn't mind going there again - though not in the high season because it's too hot for us. We were there in the beginning of September and it was perfect temperatures.

Extremely high temperatures (over 40 C during the day and over 30 during the night), how I mentioned crap hospitality, no really fun for the kids. But I will go sometime in tha spring or fall with my bike. Thre are some trails in the mountauins, which are amazing. I know a hotel in Agios Nicolaos, driven by a swiss family, specialized for biker. Thre you can rent some cool bikes also.

Wazling wrote on Apr 23, 2009:Yeah, maybe sometimes thereĀ“re strange people. When i have been there, we were invited by a friends family. That was real hospitality. They made us eat a big dinner and afterwards they played traditional music and the whole family was listening or dancing. But the best was, that all the man went to an pub, drinking some Raki and eating appetizers, during the women were preparing the dinner. We had no chance to help or so.

After we visited Knossos, we took the lunch. I ordered for the kids ORANGE juice. After a while my older boy complains, that his drinking straw is clogged. I checked it and saw, that at the end of the straw was a MELON kernel. I asked the staff, and they replied: 'it's ok, you can drink it'... Cheers
