Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Rethymno, and then travel by air-conditioned minibus to the pretty village of Agia Galini on the south coast of Crete. Get an hour to explore the village and its traditional houses and enjoy a traditional Greek coffee in the harbor area.

Continue to the village of Matala to enjoy 3 hours on the golden sandy beach, or use the time to explore the artificial caves carved into the bay in the Minoan period. Occupied by a hippy commune in the late 60s and 70s, the amazing attraction inspired artists such as Cat Stevens and Bob Dylan.

End your tour with a visit to the village of Spili, located in the foothills of Mount Vorizis, 430 meters above sea level. Wander the cobblestone streets to see the famous lion-head fountains and browse the gift shops for souvenirs of traditional products from Crete. Return to Rethymno by minibus and get dropped off at your hotel on arrival.
