Michalis and Lena were excellent tour hosts, showing great flexibility regarding inclement weather problems. Michalis is an entertaining and knowledgable tour guide, the points of interest were well described and the inclusive lunch was of a high quality. Equipment was well maintained and properly adjusted for all in our group.

This meal was one of the highlights of our trip to Crete. Sitting in a family owned olive grove, we were introduced to the flavors and recipes of the healthiest food culture in the world with authenticity and heart. Will recommend to everyone in the area.

Such a beautiful setting and loved learning & tasting different olive oils.

Nice Guide, nice tour, very service oriented. Value for money.

Great beach even that Pink sand was just a little.
