TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Georgioupolis as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Georgioupoli is a resort village 38 km southeast of Chania, in West Crete. The area around Georgioupolis is Apokoronas, with its picturesque villages and verdant landscape.
Georgioupolis serves as the end point of river Almyros, where its waters meet the sea. A few steps away from the town Almyros forms a lake that hosts an ecosystem of native species of birds and animals. You can spot the lake from the main highway as you approach Georgioupolis from Chania. Upon entering the town, you will be greeted by rows of eucalyptus and cypress trees all the way to the main square, which makes the landscape eerie and picturesque at the same time.
The beaches of Georgioupolis expand all the way eastwards, almost 7km from the village centre. They are sandy and well equipped to host an array of visitors and offer fun activities for both adults and kids. If you prefer a quiet spot you can look for the crescent-shaped beach right in the village. Also, the main square is quite lively and you can patron one of the many tavernas and bars and just sit and watch the world go by.
Just 3km from Georgioupolis visitors can find lake Kournas, one of the few freshwater lakes in the island. The lake is surrounded by the Cretan range of the White Mountains, which are reflected in its water and it used to be home to eels but now is famous for hosting terrapins and being a popular tourist attraction. As you enter the lake you can find plenty of shops and tavernas, as well as on the hillside overlooking Kournas. On the top of the hillside, visitors can enjoy mesmerising views of the lake. Despite the tourist influx in the last few years, the lake still retains its natural beauty and it is a worthwhile destination if you are in the area.
Georgioupolis is ideal for those who seek relaxation and tranquillity in their vacations. It retains the perfect balance between a town and a village, thus whereas you will be away from the hustle and the bustle of the city, you will never feel the isolation of the countryside.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Heraklion town as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion boasts the title of the largest urban entity in Crete and is also the administrative capital of the island. Heraklion has an immense historical and cultural heritage, as in close proximity to the city visitors can find the Palace of Knossos, which has served as the centre of Minoan civilisation. Throughout the city, you can also find a number of constructions dating back to the Venetian occupation such as Koules Fortress in the old port.
Heraklion is home to some world class monuments and cultural landmarks. Among the most outstanding man-made structures is the Heraklion Fortress that contains the 'old town'. Originally built by Arab merchants and later on reinforced by Venetians, the Fortress included seven bastions, of which only the Martinego bastion survives the passing of time. Moreover, visitors will be delighted to find one of the gates to the city, named Chanioporta, which is ornate with the winged lion of Saint Marc. Visitors can also pay pilgrimage to the grave of one of Greece's most important writers and Nobel recipient, N. Kazantzakis. The sight that marks his resting place also offers some mesmerising views of the city.
Throughout the city, one can spot statues and monuments commemorating prolific figures that have been important for Greece's course through history and have contributed to Crete's immense cultural heritage. Some of the names include renaissance painter El Greco, Poet Vicenzo Kornaros and Politician Eleftherios Venizelos.
Moreover, the Archaeological museum should be on the top of every visitor's list; a splendid space that boasts a massive collection of ancient artefacts from all over the island and covers more than 5,500 years of history. Special emphasis is given to the spoils of Minoan civilisation, which has been one of the first to spring in the Southern European cost and was almost entirely wiped out by a volcanic eruption and a subsequent tsunami. The museum is home to the most important collection of surviving Minoan antiquities in the world and awaits its visitors to explore the mysteries of this extinguished civilisation.
Nowadays, Heraklion represents a beacon of Greek modernization and has been subjected to an extensive urban sprawl, that gives it a truly unique character. Despite the expansion of concrete residential blocs and the immense traffic, a short walk through the bustling streets and alleys will travel you through thousand years of history and will reveal to you the hip side of Greece with its rich coffee culture and culinary delights that can be found in every corner.
