Full description
Start your day of adventure at your first stop of the trip, a local oil mill. Here you will have the opportunity to see how Crete's famous olive oil is produced on this fascinating and informative outing. Follow up your trip to the mill with a visit to the charming white chapel dedicated to Saint Nicholas in the village of Georgioupolis. Get up close to one of the most photographed landmarks in this part of Crete and be sure to grab a few memorable holiday snaps for yourself. In addition to the lovely photos, admire the architectural structure of the church, built more than a century ago on a rocky islet about 100-meters into the sea.  Follow on your journey through Crete and make a quick stop at the waterfalls of Argyroupolis. These waterfalls are responsible for the rich vegetation that surrounds the village, a truly magical and refreshing experience. Your last stop of the tour, lasting roughly 2-hours, will give you enough time to enjoy a swim and eat Cretan delicacies at the many taverns that are located around the lake.

Super Tour - wirklich nur zu empfehlen! Wir hattzdurch Zufall drei Touren mit der gleichen Reiseleitung Barbara und dem Fahrer Costa von Markidis Reisen gebucht und waren jedes Mal hochauf begeistert. mit welcher Herzlichkeit und Freude beide die Tour durchführen und die ganzen Informationen die man während der Tour erhält - einfach einzigartig! Wir haben schon viele Reiseleitungen erlebt, Barbara war jedoch mit Abstand die Beste! Nicht zu vergessen natürlich der Inhalt der Tour. Hier lernt man Kreta nochmal von einer anderen Seite kennen. Sehr viel Natur. Unbedingt buchen und teilnehmen.
