I attended a wedding in Crete with my parents who are in their 60's. Particularly, because of my mom who has limited mobility I needed something personalized and taylored to our needs. I sent the same e-mail to three different travel agencies with dates and preferences. The only agency that replied with a proposed one-week itinerary was Travel Crete Private Tours (ex. 1618travel) , including transportation to the little town where the wedding took place. Moreover, they had the
