    This was a beautiful wine tasting experience! Our guide, Dimitris, was absolutely wonderful! He was very knowledgeable and had lots of interesting information to share with us while driving to the various locations. The wine/olive oil tasting happened at a beautiful location! You try two different olive oils and 3-4 different wines I believe. Beware! We made the mistake of buying too much olive oil from this place only to find out that this olive oil can be found in the United States. Of course it is much cheaper here, but we would have preferred to save some more space for wine! Our lunch was also at a beautiful mountainous location and was very tasty! Dimitris also gave some very helpful recommendations for other things to do/check out on the island and they were fantastic recommendations that we thoroughly enjoyed! Would absolutely recommend this tour to others!

    Wonderful and intimate tour! We were able to see the oldest olive tree in the world on a family-owned farm, then travel to Anoskeli winery where we tried olive oil and wines from the winery. The olive oil was the best we have ever had. We then traveled to a lovely restaurant for lunch, where our meals were already ordered and we were able to try traditional Cretan food like stuffed zucchini flowers (our personal favorite). We were shown around the countryside as well, and while it was good amount of driving, the views were fantastic! There were supposed to be 4 of us, but the other couple did not show up so we got a personal tour from George who was incredible! He was extremely friendly and we really enjoyed his company throughout the day. Overall, a great tour that we highly recommend.

    This was an exceptional tour that we enjoyed very much! Nasos is fantastic and very knowledgeable and we learnt so much about Greek culture through his relaxed but informative approach. The wine tasting and lunch were both superb and in really beautiful settings. Can’t recommend this tour enough! Fantastic day out.
