"When flying into Heraklion,..." Greece Tourist Trap Tip by Thad_Koch

Greece Tourist Traps: 89 reviews and 46 photos

When flying into Heraklion, Crete, especially at night, the cab drivers will try to take you to a hotel they have an under the table deal with. We went without a reservation and were subjected to this tactic but after seeing the hotels they recommended, insisted on going to one we knew was a better hotel. It took lots of insisting so have a reservation.
Use the Lonely Planet guides always!
