I was kind of worried because I knew I was booking this thru a 3rd party and I’ve had bad experiences with another 3rd party, Viator. However this was a great tour and I think it’s because the people in Crete are so nice. Mr. Dimitris was genuinely warm and excited to show us the villages because he’s a proud local. He had us tasting so much by the time we got to lunch, we could hardly eat the delicious spread. I feel like we learned so much of Crete’s history because he’s a local who learned from his elders. The kids also liked him. In short, there is no way we would have found these places or would have been treated as nicely if we went to these villages on our own. By the way, there was no pressure to buy anything but we did have a chance to buy really good quality local Raki and Olive oil.
This was a really good insight into the people, culture, history and cuisine of the islanders of Crete. We visited seven villages and viewed a museum, a cave-church, a small amphitheatre, and met some great people at a raki distillery, a cheese factor and a local bakery. We finished off the tour with a really nice lunch at a village taverna, sampling many of the items we had seen growing or being produced.
We really enjoyed the tour. Our driver Yannis was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us a lot of information about the culture and history of Crete during our drive. We really enjoyed visiting the winery and the cheese factory. All in all, this was a great way to soak in some real Crete culture. Highly recommend!
excellent tour - make sure you only have a light breakfast before setting out as virtually every stop involves eating local produce. The guide Yannis was excellent - lots of interesting information, but all delivered in a relaxed pace. Overall and outstanding tour
Fantastic tour, our guide was very knowledgeable, the cooking was great fun and wine tasting a bonus. The whole family loved it.
