  • "The tour guide encourages people to switch seats between stops, so it’s probably better to strategically sit mid vehicle during the off road part." See review

Olive Oil & Wine - Great Combination
Jayk
, Jul 2021
This was our 1st guided tour in Crete. Overall an excellent experience. Our tour guide, Thanass, was fantastic. Even with his hoarse voice, he pushed through with tons of useful tips, information and interesting stories. The olive mill was situated high up in the mountains, and the woman providing the tour was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their products. I only wish the gift tubes (a soon to be product) made from residual olive pulp were available at the time of our tour. The winery was another excellent part of the tour. We tasted all six of their offerings, and they kept getting better. My girlfriend, who is very selective about her white wines, enjoyed everything from the whites to the rose. I’m generally a fan of reds, but enjoyed drinking all of them. You will also make a brief stop to visit the world’s oldest olive tree. It makes for a good photo op, but don’t count on getting any olive oil from that particular tree. That’s reserved for dignitaries and famous people. The last part of the tour consisted of a stop at a taverna on the mountain road back toward Chania. The food was filling, but just OK in taste. In all there were nine of us on the tour, and we were the only occupied table. I’m not so sure how they stay in business. Pick up and drop off were very close to our Airbnb and timely. If you’re at all interested in touring an olive mill or winery this is definitely worthwhile. Oh, forgot to mention the little bit (~30 min) of off road driving between the winery and taverna. It’s quite bumpy, so be prepared. The tour guide encourages people to switch seats between stops, so it’s probably better to strategically sit mid vehicle during the off road part. Yas mas!

Wonderful outing!

This was a fabulous day of exploring Crete outside of the main cities. Athanasios (I hope I got the spelling right), was a wonderful guide who knows a tremendous amount about the island - you'll learn a lot! Manalo was also along for the ride as a new trainee and was wonderful. The wine is delicious, the rural scenery is stunning, the olive oil is SO good (I was traveling light otherwise I would have gotten some), the oil tree is way cool, and the food at the tavern is delicious....highly recommend.

This is an amazing tour! So many great sites, the ride through the gorge is amazing, and the meal and the family who provided it is absolutely great! We only spent a week on Crete, and this was our favorite non-beach day!

This tour was one of the highlights of our time in Crete. Super fun tour with super fun guides. The entire day was amazing but the highlight was having lunch with this amazing couple on a remote mountain village. Not at a restaurant. This was all home cooked food. Book this tour!

Just do this. We spent 10 nights in Greece including Santorini and this was probably the highlight. Authentic, interesting, and our guide Petros was great. The meal in a tiny mountain village right along the road was incredible. it was prepared by a husband and wife, not a restaurant. A great overview of life on Crete. Worth every penny. Do not hesitate to book this!
