Greek people as a whole, and especially Cretans are some of the nicest people I met on my trip. While Switzerland's people are almost too nice, too good to be true, Cretans just seemed at home helping you and being nice. Engaging a Cretan person, who for me HAD to speak English, was one of the easier things I did. They were always courteous and the service was above average, as far as European standards go.
Whenever you are in Greece and Crete, be sure to strike up a conversation with a local. You will never be sure where the conversation will go... or end!
