Experience the day-to-day life of the Cretan villages and share with the locals their knowledge on local products and delicacies. After meeting your guide, head to the region of Kisamos, famous for its olive oil and wine production.

We were completely satisfied. Chania and Falassarna are definitely worth a trip. The length of stay at the individual stations was optimally measured, so that you had enough time to look at everything in peace and to relax on the beach. Anastasia and Costas were super friendly and made the tour a very informative and heartfelt experience. We can only recommend the tour.

I'm excited! I have seldom had such a pleasant tour. The driver and the company were great. I will only book tours with both of them.

Was a great trip. You have a lot of time in the city and on the beach. Approx. 3h per place. The return journey is very long.

Very interesting trip, beach is amazing, very positive and helpful staff. Recommend!

Everything was well organized. Many thanks to Barbara and Kostas for the great trip.
