At the time of our establishment in 1972, tourism in Crete was still in an early stage. With the strategic vision of our founder, Mr. Konstantinos Badouvas, his confidence, passion and ambition to grow, we did not only manage to grow rapidly and make Cretan Holidays a success story but simultaneously contributed to developing the Cretan & Greek tourism industry, turning it into one the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean. Mr. Konstantinos Badouvas is considered as the ultimate pioneer of the Cretan tourism industry and his legacy continues to inspire the new generation of tourism entrepreneurs.

Since the very beginning, our company has always been operating with deep respect and reliance on its human resources. It’s unquestionably an indispensable part of our corporate culture, along with exceptional quality and customer service. Core values which will continue to guide the company’s further steps.

Last but certainly not least, we’d like to express our sincerest gratitude to our partners Schauinsland Reisen and the Sunweb Group, with whom we hold the longest-running partnerships. We thank them for their continued trust and loyalty over the past decades, in which we have obtained a strong relation of mutual trust, respect and commitment. Likewise, we warmly thank and value all our partners, regardless the size of business and duration of our co-operation, for putting their trust and confidence in our company and giving us the opportunity to grow dynamically together.

We are very excited and trust that our timeless passion for tourism will allow us to build further on the solid business foundation we’ve laid with commitment and respect during the past 50 years.
