Full description

Pair up with our top local insider and journey along the golden expanse of West Crete by the comfort of a luxury chauffeured vehicle.

Submerge into a bespoke adventure fueled by the shimmering authenticity of ancient villages, hospitable locals who live close to untouched nature, lavish gorges spilling their rivers into the sea, and storied Byzantine Monasteries nestled among utopian wonders. Tuck into the genuine flavors of our legendary forefathers. Unearth the archaic hamlet of King Agamemnon where water resources are pure, the temperature is ideal, and the local knowledge of food is an art.

Prepare to be mesmerized by delicious aromas of slow-grilled lamb and melt-in-mouth river fish placed around an open fire straight in front of you. Luxuriate along the seaside town of Rethymno basking in the charm of the labyrinthian streets and Venetian fortification.
