Neat book to carry around. It is not too big, too heavy or too detailed. Map references immediately after the blurb on places of interest are particularly helpful. It worked for me. In the transport section it might be worth saying something about how bus stops and tourist bus stops work particularly if you are staying out in the countryside like we were. The buses for longer journeys are mainly airconditioned coaches while local buses are of the recogniseable bendy bus type and tourist buses only service local hotels. They managed to confuse us but then again, probably no different from anywhere else in the world. If you can get hold of a bus route map/stops then go for it. Bus conductors will generally tell you when to get off, if unlike us, you are staying somewhere within sight of a bus stop, the place you are staying has a name and you can recognise where you are...quite difficult on unlit roads! A week's holiday was not long enough to get my head around them. PS If you are near Chania then the main bus station in Chania has a handy Information Office with helpful people who will tell you the number of the bus you need to take.
