Good tour

Meeting other people on the tour was great and our host was great but he was also the driver so note that. We went to three wineries one which was also and olive oil factory as well as the oldest olive tree. I just thought the tour ended too soon (2 pm) and we were supposed to see more.

Amazing tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Went to an olive refinery where we had a wine and olive oil tasting. Then proceeded to visit the oldest olive tree while getting more insight into how olive oil was produced in the old days. Concluded at yet another winery for more tasting, Each tasting coming with sumptuous appetizers that were very filling. Great tour. You'll enjoy. Had other folks with us but we all enjoyed seamlessly together.

We loved our olive oil and wine tour! Our guide, Andres was extremely knowledgeable on the wine, and led the perfect day. Great value with everything we received as far as air conditioned van, guide, two wine tastings, olive oil tasting, and stop at the olive oil tree. Will recommend this tour to my friends and family!

Good wineries. A bit overpriced
M_Castell
, Oct 2020
Both tastings were good. Personally, I liked the first one more (anoskeli winery), since the variety of wines was quite remarkable and their olive oil was also amazing. The tour description stated that lunch was included, but we only got some snacks at each winery. Since the tour finished at 3, I would have expected to have a proper full lunch like in other wine tours I’ve been. Yannis was our tour guide and he was great at explaining everything and súper very friendly.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Dear Mrs. Mayra, I would like to thank you for taking the time to review our tour online in public. And also, thank you for your positive feedback about the wineries and our host, Yiannis. But unfortunately, lunch is not included and was never included in this tour. You stated that the trip is overpriced and ranked the experience with 3 stars. Please, allow me to inform you that you paid for a semi-private tour which was a 100% more personalized experience. You got aboard on a new Mercedes minivan, your host was at your service for more than 6 hours, you tasted 11 wines accompanied by platters of food (tomatoes, Cretan cheese, ham, salami, cucumber, olives, bread, etc), you visited the olive tree and the museum, etc. You weren't asked to pay any extra costs during this trip, so you totally paid 84€. Out of the 84€, our company has to pay the following: The commission of the system you booked through (Viator) --- And this commission is a big part of this price. Our driver/host Gasoline & minivan Wine & food All entrance fees TAXES & VAT and many more hidden costs that I'm glad to discuss with you whenever you're available. I hope that you can understand the situation better now, and reconsider. The tourism industry is getting through a very rough crisis and we're still trying to maintain the quality of our tours, our people, and move forward. Please try to be more careful with the hidden details and think twice before you publish a similar review in the future. Thanks for understanding. My kindest Regards Thimianos Ioannis Managing Director

This tour ended way too quickly but I'll remember it for a long time to come. Our driver Giannis was very knowledgeable and proud to share insights into both the history and food heritage of the island. All the places we visited had a very traditional atmosphere and it was evident that they take utmost pride in their products from seed to bottle. A perfect way to access wine and olive oil of the best quality, while having a glimpse into the production of these Cretan staples.

Our guide Demitrius made this rainy day one of the best touring days ever for us! We were just a group of four, and it was very easy to move around the island in a small mini-van. I have learned more on this trip about olive oil and how they make it than I ever new. It was very enjoyable to visit the wineries and olive oil factory. We tasted both wine and olive oil, and they were delicious! We bought some to take home with us! The island was very beautiful and the local people were very friendly. I highly recommend this tour, and I hope you will get Demitrius as a tour guide!

Wonderful, very personal tour. Lovely wines and olive oils with accompanying Cretan meze. A beautiful ride through the countryside to reach our destinations. Local experts were welcoming and enthusiastic. Most of all, the passion of our tour leader for Cretan history tied the trip together. So glad we booked this day tour.

Brilliant tour. Couldn't have had a better, friendlier guide. Yanis's knowledge of the area and it's history was worth the trip on its own. Both vineyards and olive oil tours were excellent with quality tastings. Would do it again. Worth every penny.

Nina L
, May 2017
This turned out to be a private tour for myself and my daughter as only two of us had booked this trip for the day we went. We hugely appreciated that it was not cancelled and we had the undivided attention of our driver and guide, Yannis, who was fun, friendly and informative. At the two vineyards, there were tours of the wine and olive oil production processes - with guides from the Manousakis vineyard and Anoskeli oil producers themselves - as well as food provided so that the very generous amounts of the 10 wines tasted did not go totally to our heads. The Manousakis winery is in a stunningly beautiful location, and in both cases it was good to visit areas inland that we would not otherwise have seen. The tour began from the office of the company in central Chania but Yannis delivered us back to our hotel at the end of the day which was hugely appreciated. This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday and we would definitely recommend it.

Très éducatif et amusant. Je recommande. Le guide est passionné de son métier de sommelier, donc ça aide beaucoup. En plein dans la nature entouré d’oliviers évidemment.
