What people are saying about Dourakis Winery

This experience was by far one of the best tours we have ever done anywhere in the world! The most engaging, informative and helpful guides, not just for this tour where we learned a lot about olive oil and wine but also raki, but also with all manner of information about Crete in general and Rethymnon in particular. We felt like we had spent the day with good friends and learnt so much at the same time. These guys went way beyond anything we could have expected and are simply the best. Highly, highly recommended!!

Definitely the best we've been to! Our guide was absolutely amazing and extremely knowledgeable. Already in the car on the way to see how olive oil is made, we both felt that this would be a day to remember for a long time. We had an extremely nice time and got to learn a lot about Crete, olive oil wine and their food culture. Can not say what was best but we both really recommend booking this!

Maria was an amazing guide. She extremely friendly & knowledgeable and really went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our tour. Highly recommend this tour!!

The trip with our guide María was great! Maria told us a lot about Crete and showed us places away from the tourist hotspots. Recommended at any time!
