AJ on as golf guide on the Crete golf CourseMr. Routaki is (one of my) nickname(s) for Arjan, the writer and creative founder of this Routaki website. I am also known as AJ.  Most English speaking people have problems pronouncing my Dutch name, that’s why I use my first two initials to be known for every body, every where. On Crete it’s Mr. Routaki; small routes with the Cretan name-ending -aki.

I have been on the island since 1995 and have done a variety of jobs.Therefore I know a lot about the island. Working out my Routaki routes, which you can read about on this website, I learned even more.

In my Blog roll I share my experiences on a montly basis. But most of all I enjoy driving you around and show you the typical Cretan aspects.

You can hire me as your personal travel partner for yourself or together with your husband/wife/friend/child(ren) to a maximum of 4 persons.

One day (e.g. 9.30-17.30 u) costs €85,- (one Mr.Routaki coin) for one person. For every extra guest I ask  two silver coins extra à € 20,-

If your group consists of more than four people I have to arrange other transportation, which comes with an additional cost.

In 2006 I had the idea to provide route descriptions for my guests who decided to rent a local car. In those days the product consisted of A4-papers folded in a little booklet, which where given out by me personally, accompanied by a CD or a audio cassette. 5 Day routes with more than 120 items of information.

Nowadays Routaki routes is a platform where freelancers can participate in the developing process into several languages. I take care of the Dutch versions and my goal is it, to provide more than 20 free routes in the future. The routes are also visible on Google My Maps and for the use of the audio files you have to obtain a password to access to the website so you can listen to them on your own smartphone or tablet.

When you book me as your private travel partner / tour rep I will use these routes, knowledge and  audio files to make sure you have a wonderful time during your personal tour.

AJ4U or as properly pronounced AJ for YOU !

AJ4U Golf & Guide was officially registered in January 2017. The goal of this one-person-company is to offer you, as a golf player the ultimate leisure experience on the golf course, but also besides the course. My main prospective is to provide you a worry-less round of Golf and on the side let you experience the beauty of the island of Crete. If you never have played golf before I can guide you through the beginnings and let you experience the brilliants of this sport during a driving range session.

As aids for these goals I use my two websites; the one you’re on;  Routaki.com, on which I offer free route descriptions and provides audio files (so called RAGiF’s) with interesting facts and details about the island, its inhabitants and their cultural aspects. The other website is called WickedGolfers.com and is for everything related to golf, especially on the beautiful Cretan Golf Course.
