Extremely educational and lovely tour! Our guide was phenomenal and he was so passionate about Crete’s culture and “mentality”. My girlfriend and I were constantly impressed throughout the duration of this amazing tour. Would recommend to anyone visiting Crete for the first time. All you can drink wine and a delicious Greek meal will leave you FULL, we were feeling great to say the least. 10/10 don’t hesitate and book this now!!

Enjoyable wine tasting experience under pretty pergoda in a beautiful setting. We were told a little about the wines we were trying and then had a plate of tradirional food. Next we travelled through the family's own land again in the jeeps to a rise where we watched the sunset.

Guide and off road were perfect! The wines tasted delicious and really an experience richer. The tasting went really too fast, so you almost had to eat certain wines.

Very good excursion. Very nice view, nice driver, good wine and good food and good tours.
