The 7 villages tour was very enjoyable! The guide was super-knowledgeable about the places we visited, and clearly enjoyed sharing his knowledge with us. Driving through the very charming landscape of the countryside east of Chania, we passed a cheesemaker, a rusk baker, and an olive oil factory, and finally ended up in a traditional tavern in Fres for a delicious lunch. Twice we could taste raki as well. All in all, to be recommended!

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was varied with several stops, including a folklore museum, a cheese factory, a winery and a fantastic lunch. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour for those who want to learn something about village life.

Fantastic way to get to experience smaller towns in Crete. Andreas was funny, knowledgeable, and really took care of us. I recommend this if you want to see how local Cretan people live in non-touristy spots. Everyone we visited at the locations were also very nice. Definitely worth doing. Loved it! Be prepared for lots of Raki.
