We did this tour before heading home the following day. It was a great way to end our fabulous trip to Crete. Our guide was excellent - he really knew his wine and island history. We enjoyed all the stops along the way and getting to know our fellow tour members. Would highly recommend this tour to others.

Collection as agreed, given timeframe respected. The tour guide also knew a lot about wine and olives. Mostly dry wines were offered for wine tasting. Small snacks, completely sufficient. If you had more specific questions, they were answered and explained in a way that was easy to understand. Very nice tour, priced completely OK.

Andrea's, our guide is both knowledgeable and interesting. We visited two vineyards, the first also produces olive oil which we also tasted. Both tastings were accompanied by bread cheese meats and olives. The wines were introduced by people from the vineyards. It was a small group and a fabulous day. Recommended!
