We had a wonderful day out in crete. We were picked up exactly on time and we drove to the plateau. The driver/ guide drove very considered while at the same time telling about Crete, the people and history. We visited the impressive caves after a nice climb. Afterwards we went to the wine tasting. It seemed to me a rather long drive. But the winery was worth it.

a great day with a very informative guide

We greatly enjoyed our visit to the Lasitti plateau, visit to the so-called Cave of Zeus and wine-tasting in a local winery. Our guide was very helpful and informative.
