We spent a wonderful day and our guide Nora told us a lot about her island with her passion and enthusiasm, including mythology, scenic and social features, linguistic customs and much more... Each stop on the tour was something special, especially because of its history Background. It was a small group of 6, which we thought was pretty good. It's great that the agency is trying to form a group of the same age.

Definitely the best we've been to! Our guide was absolutely amazing and extremely knowledgeable. Already in the car on the way to see how olive oil is made, we both felt that this would be a day to remember for a long time. We had an extremely nice time and got to learn a lot about Crete, olive oil wine and their food culture. Can not say what was best but we both really recommend booking this!

This experience was by far one of the best tours we have ever done anywhere in the world! The most engaging, informative and helpful guides, not just for this tour where we learned a lot about olive oil and wine but also raki, but also with all manner of information about Crete in general and Rethymnon in particular. We felt like we had spent the day with good friends and learnt so much at the same time. These guys went way beyond anything we could have expected and are simply the best. Highly, highly recommended!!
