A great tour, the absolute scent of Crete – all in one.
A great tour, the absolute scent of Crete – all in one. On this tour, you will enjoy an amazing experience through the main elements of Crete. Olive, wine, and food will thrill you…
The glorious olive oil, the underrated wine (you will be really impressed) of the Cretan land and the very well known food of this area will reach the full potential of your desires. Moreover, prepare yourselves to see and touch the oldest olive oil tree in the world.
This small journey starts by visiting one of the most popular wineries of Crete, which is also producing its own olive oil. You will taste different famous varieties of the Cretan wine, the olive oil that the company is producing, plus some delicious snacks to satisfy yourselves.
Later, as mentioned, you will visit one of the must-see things in Crete. The oldest olive oil tree in the world, which is aged 3000 y.o.
Later a second winery is following, on which you are going to taste 9 (!) different varieties and feel like you discovered a hidden gem.
The last stop is for lunch in another hidden gem of Chania Prefecture, one of the places that are considered non-touristy places to go. You will find great restaurants in Chania’s old town, but we really doubt that you will find something like this.
In total, 2 wineries, an olive oil factory, tasting of wine, snacks, and olive, plus a light lunch to fully satisfy yourselves.
