A DELECTABLE DAY IN CRETE
This authentic experience gives you the opportunity to explore the stunning geographical landscape and soak up the culture and traditions of the Greek islands. Our tour begins in the beautiful Bay of Elounda, which is famed throughout the Aegean region for its lush green hills, sun-kissed beaches and pristine crystalline waters. From the charming and delightful village of Kritsa, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Bays of Elounda and Mirabello. Wander along the narrow streets of the traditional village, and admire the abundant display of flowers and fruit trees in the courtyards, terraces and balconies of the quaint little houses. We visit a local olive farm to learn all about the olive oil, wine and raki that are produced using traditional methods. Sample a delicious Cretan meze, as you enjoy a lively and colourful performance of Cretan music and folk dance.
Visit The St. Tropez Of Crete
Affectionately known as the St. Tropez of Crete, the picturesque coastal town of Agios Nikolaos is our final destination. Its most iconic landmark is the circular Lake Voulismeni where it is said the goddess Athena bathed. The charismatic shoreline is dotted with quaint little cafes and restaurants.
You will have time to explore the town’s charming Archeological Museum and cathedral and learn about the island’s fascinating history from our specialist guide. If you wish, you can shop for souvenirs in the trinket stores along the pedestrian-only lane, and soak up the ambience of this beguiling beauty spot overlooking the curving Bay of Mirabello.
