Description

Fine day out discovering Cretan traditions in a small group of 6-8 persons in each premium expedition vehicle.
Starting our day trip safari to Cretan culture we visit Terra Creta olive mill and then Karavitakis winery for an informative tour with tasting in the Cretan secrets for long life! We visit Ano Vouves village with an ancient olive tree which is 3000 years old and an explanation on the history of olives. Working up an appetite we arrive at a small village tavern in Panethimos, where we will introduce you to the Cretan cuisine with plenty of food, wine and warm Cretan hospitality. On the way up to Mesavlia we cross a gorge with its picturesque creek nestled amongst lush vegetation. There will be plenty of opportunities to take photos of Chapels, sheep, goats, vineyards and olive grooves on our way through the gorge. On the way back we pass through the historical Cretan villages of Kakopetros, Dromonero and Voukolies before we reach Chania town.
