What you'll do

Kostas will pick you up and drive you ton an old friend of ours "Kanakis". He owns a olive oil factory where you we learn about the process of olive oil production and taste the finest cretan olive oil! We will also have a greek coffee before we go to our next stop. After a 10' drive we will reach one of the best wineries of the region. There we will teach you the history, tradition and the latest developments in the production of wine and all information on the particular characteristics of the Cretan “terroir”. You will participate in a fully guided tour of the plantations of the winery, the cellar and the production area. After the tour,we will continue on to the wine tasting room, where you will be able to taste five types of wine, accompanied by traditional rusks and olives.​ Finally we will visit the small and beautiful Vrysses village in order to finish our day with a glass of raki or the Cretan "limoncello", accompanied by Cretan delicious snacks. If the food is too much...no worries a short walk in the village will do the trick before we return :)

Our main goal is to make you feel like a Cretan through our experiences and become a part of our family. Welcome to Crete and let's explore olive oil, wine, cretan gastronomy and a lot of laughs!

My experience at this tour was very good. Pantelis was very helpful from the beginning, trying to organise a lift from the city we were staying to the actual village where the tour was going to take place, my accommodation was a bit far but he was prompt and helpful all the way. The whole your experience was also lovely. Vincent, the tour guide, had his own personal point of view about the whole Cretian experience, which was very interesting. He made the experience intimate and very enjoyable. Greek people are lovely and funny. Want to come back soon. Thank you.

Vincent hat uns überpünktlich abgeholt. Auf dem Weg zu unserem ersten Treffpunkt hat er uns viele Infos auch außerhalb der Tour gegeben. Die Touren waren toll. Zum Lunch waren wir in einer Taverne im Inland. Sehr lecker und authentisch, wo man als Touri nie hingekommen wäre. Tolle Menschen, eine tolle Erfahrung. Gerne wieder

A tour not to be missed! Kostas made the trip extremely enjoyable and fun, yet still relaxed. The oil and wine tasting was great! The food was served at a small village taverna and was exceptional. If you want to see the real Crete than this is the tour for you!

Great experience! The wine tasting was absolutely amazing, beautiful setting and service with amazing tastes of Greek wines. Lunch in a small village was also stunning and left us satisfied and with new knowledge of Cretan culture. We had a great time with our tour guide! Thank you! For the olive oil tasting, if you are interested in seeing the olive oil produced make sure you go during a time when they are harvesting as it was not operating during our visit.

We loved this tour and had a great time with our host Hera! The locations were super special and Hera shared a lot of insight, knowledge and obvious love for the places we visited. I would definitely recommend this.

Superb tour. Vincent, our guide for the day, was one of the best we have come across. We found the Olive tour particularly interesting. The wine tasting was excellent, just marred by the bad weather. We could imagine how lovely it would have been sitting on the sun terrace. The tour of the vineyard would have been better if we hadn’t been joined by 2 bus loads of Americans from the NATO base as it was difficult to get a proper look around but hey hoh. We were more interested in the wine tasting anyway. The taverna we visited in the tiny village afterwards was fantastic. The setting was stunning and the food really excellent. We didn’t need to eat anything in the evening ! Thank you Vincent for a lovely day
