Perfect tour & host to discover the beauty CRETE

I had visited Crete many years ago and wanted to actually explore it in a different way. The Peza Wine Roads worked out extremely well. We were a party of 4 people. Right from scratch, our host Iorgos, focussed on the fascinating history of Cretan wine, beginning with the early Minoan Civilization, until our days. I really liked the fact that Iorgos actually described things beyond Wine... such as the world of Virgin Olive related to Greece... We went into 2 wineries & tasted easily some 12 different varieties. After this, a superb lucnh awaited us at a traditional restaurant in Archanes town. This is the Crete... and the food was superb! It was complimented with at least 5 more wines from other parts of the island and, to my surprise, we further our knowledge of olive oil by tasting what it might have been a dozen of them! A great experience overall, satisfying and at the same time one that leaves a lasting impression. A host eager to share the magic of its land...

Excellent information and amazing tour guide!

Our tour guide was amazing, she gave us so much information about the palace and delved deeper into the history and provided us with so much knowledge about the palace and what took place there. It felt like we were getting an insider's scoop, or like we were taking an upper-level university course. It wasn't as surface level as a lot of other tours are ("this painting was done by this man" , "these bricks are this old", etc). Rather, she told us a lot about why things were the way they were and had us thinking about things very deeply and abstractly. Not only was the tour itself amazing, but our tour guide was wonderful. I had a moment where I was about to faint from dehydration and she rushed over to me and knew exactly what to do to help, then kept an eye on me the rest of the tour. I wish I could remember her name (I think it was Tatiana...? She was tall and blonde). Overall, an amazing tour and would definitely recommend.

Everything as advertised. Easy meet-up, small group, great tour guide.

Meet-up process was very simple, and buying tickets was very easy as they walked up with us to the special window they have for guides to buy tickets. 10 in our group, which was perfect - watching as other groups of 40 or more went by, I was very happy with our tour. Calypso was a very knowledgeable and thorough guide, who had great knowledge of the site, and especially of the history. Also great at finding shade, which is appreciated in July. :)

Fascinating insights from a genuine expert

Joanna really knows her stuff, and offered enlightening insights into the minds of the people who lived in and around Knossos. Her descriptions of the thinking of the early Archeologists was also fascinating. A brilliant educational experience. To call it a 'tour' is somehow demeaning. This was no parrot reciting a script! Thanks. Kerry, New Zealand.

Very enlightening thoughts and information

My guide gave me many interesting information. She shared her thoughts and views as well as evidences that were found, after challenging me with questions about what I think before giving me the answer. Also she explained why what’s been mistakenly thought of being a palace, truly is a temple.
