My husband and I very much enjoyed our wine tour and lunch. It was a great way to see and taste more of Crete than we would have experienced on our own. The lunch was amazing! It was in a cute little town and more food than we could eat, and it was all delicious. The wine on the tour was also good, a variety of whites and reds.

The entire day was 5 stars! From the olive oil tasting and tour to the wine tasting and 5 course lunch with wines paired with each course! Wish we could have brought more items back to the states. Guide was well versed in everything we experienced! We would give this 10 states first possible!

Nice service with pick-up and drop-off at your own hotel in a comfortable bus. Really good guide (clear English/German speaking) Had an exciting and informative trip to Knossos and Iraklion on 30.09.2022 with plenty of time on my own. Can definitely be recommended.

Mary was an excellent guide. Zeus Cave was worthwhile ana Lassithi Plateau with a look. We did not encounter too many other people or tour groups at Knossos, which was good.

Anastasia and Costas were fantastic tour guides. There were good amounts of time at each location and a great combination for a day trip.
