This may sound odd, and I have no idea if she is still there. But, if your in Heraklion stop by the big hotel there on the beach on the main drag (I forget the name, but it's the only really big one...or was) and ask for an older british woman by the name of Alexandra. She was such a huge help when I stopped there for a week while I was in the Navy. Gave me many excellent trip suggestions and directions etc. She was the best resource I could find at the time back in 2009.
